Question Is this normal? Cycling question

I finally got my water heater working good WOOHOO! But I don't know if this is normal. The water heater periodically will fire up and run 15 - 30 seconds and shut off when no hot water is being used. Is that a normal cylce length to maintain the water temp?TonyPS - thanks for all the great help everyone has given me

When our water heater is turned on but we are not using hot water it also cycles as you are describing. Ours usually stays lit for a minute or two.

Question


All that I have experience with have cycled also, but...15-30sec seems a little short, how long between start-ups?
Could have a thermostat or insulation concern.

With ours, the cycle duration depends on how cold it is outside.
