Water heater elements supply the heat to water in electric water heaters. Unless they are designed as “bare wire”, these heating elements usually consist of a zinc-plated loop of copper. Products vary by style, voltage, watts, amps, density type (relative to hardness of water), and other considerations. And while your doing a parts check on your water heater, be sure to see our electric water heater controls.
