  • Patent number: 10436477
    Abstract: A water heater includes a burner, a heat exchanger, a passing water quantity control unit, a temperature detection unit, and an operation control unit. The operation control unit performs the output hot water temperature control by configuring the passing water quantity control unit to have a predetermined passing water quantity that is further restricted compared with a predetermined water quantity, and upon confirmation that a predetermined release condition of the passing water restriction is satisfied, executes the passing water control in which the passing water quantity is returned back to the predetermined water quantity by gradually releasing the passing water restriction, and the operation control unit, when a predetermined undershoot factor of the detected temperature is confirmed while the passing water quantity is returned back to the predetermined water quantity, temporarily stops the release of the restriction of the passing water quantity until the undershoot factor is resolved.
