An electric water heater is a fully automatic water heater. It has a storage tank with one or more electric heating elements along with operating & safety controls. It is often surpass the consumption of energy for domestic activities for instance cooking, refrigeration and lighting. It uses electricity as an energy source to heat water. It also makes use of electric resistance elements to heat the water in storage tank using two electric resistance elements, which are located at the top and bottom of the storage tank and controlled through an independent thermostat.
