Inside is when you want to use gas, outside is for using electric.


If both are on you are using both electric and gas.

Unless you have both an electric and a gas switch inside... Along with an electric switch outside.

x2!

But make sure that the WH is full of water before you turn the electric switch on.
Otherwise you will burn out the electric heating element.

To properly answer this one would need to know "What MFG and Model# of the W/H" ! The Wrong "WAG" could cost a Member some $$! Youroo!!

X2 to what Youroo said. In order to answer the question correctly we need to know the mfg. (and the model would be nice) of the water heater.
