Description: Gas or electric water heaters.
How to prepare for recycling: All water heaters with a tank must have valve opened, and unit must be drained of water. On demand style with no heat pump accepted as is.
We purchase newer style heat pump equipped water heaters ONLY if the oil enclosed compressor motor has been removed prior to arrival. We purchase compressor motors, once separate from the unit, if all oil is drained. Drill a hole in the bottom of the compressor and allow to sit upright until no longer dripping. Join us in being wise stewards of our environment. Please recycle recaptured oil properly. It's illegal to vent refrigerant into the atmosphere. Contact a licensed technician for assistance.
