What does HUD say about water heaters? First and foremost, the water heater must work and must be able to do its job. This is not a revolutionary concept, but if there is no hot water coming out the faucet when there should be, then clearly there is an issue to be solved. Testing the water temperature and water pressure is something that appraisers do during an FHA property inspection. Secondly, if local code states that the water heater must be strapped, then HUD requires a strap.
