Hello, Im writing to find out how I can migrate from our oil burner to the electric water heater? We just bought a house and were told by the previous owner that he shuts down the oil burner in the summer and uses the electric water heater. The only problem is he did not leave directions on how to do that. We've tried shutting the burner off but we dont get any hot water. There are no on/off switches on the electric heater so we really dont have any idea when its working or how to get it going.
The water heater is hooked up to the breaker box and should be in working order. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
