Reasons for No Hot Water in Your Home

know_289

Have you ever crawled out of bed in the morning, just to find that you can’t get the hot water to start flowing?

There is nothing more frustrating than this. While you may have to take a cold shower, you don’t want this problem to drag on any longer. Instead, you need to find out what’s going on.

First things first, it’s time to examine your water heater. Ask questions such as:

·      Is the pilot light on?

·      Is it possible there is a gas leak leading to the water heater?

·      Does your water heater need replaced, maybe because of a leak?

All of these questions can be answered by visiting the location of your water heater and doing some basic research.

Note: you may be lucky to find that your problem is something basic, such as a thermostat that was accidentally turned down.

While the most common cause of no hot water is an issue with your water heater, don’t overlook the fact that something could be wrong with the actual tap. To determine if this is the cause, move from one room to the next to check each tap for hot water. If the problem is isolated, it may not be your water heater causing you trouble.

It doesn’t matter if you need a new water heater or are facing some other plumbing challenge, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.
