Untapping the Reasons You Have No Hot Water
After a hard day there’s nothing better than taking a hot bath or shower, but there’s nothing worse than discovering that you have no hot water. There are several reasons why your water might be lukewarm or freezing cold. No matter what the reason might be, our professional plumbers here at Waldman Plumbing are ready to help.
If your lack of hot water is because of a faulty pilot light, this is one of the easiest problems to fix. Check your water heater to see if the pilot light is actually on. If it’s not, there should be instructions for relighting it in the water heater’s owner’s manual.
Gas Hot Water Heaters
Beverly water heaters that run on gas can have leaks in the gas line, which is why you might have no hot water. This might be the case if you notice the stench of rotting eggs around your water heater. If you do, you’ll want to immediately get out of your house and either call us or the fire department.
There’s also the possibility that the heating element might be out on your water heater. In this case we can have it repaired for you in no time flat.
Water contaminants can gather and harden in your water heater over time, which significantly compromises your heater’s ability to produce hot water. It’s best that you regularly clean your water heater and use softening agents to soften your hard water.
