If your hot water isn’t working, then you are probably desperate for a solution. Fortunately, most issues that cause a lack of hot water can be resolved by a licensed technician. Below, we’ll share some of the most common problems that can affect your home’s hot water. We’ll also share how a licensed technician can help with diagnoses, repairs or replacement.
Why Isn’t the Hot Water Working?
There are several different problems that can affect your hot water. Of course, there are some water heaters that only provide a limited supply of hot water, which can easily run out, especially if you have guests or are simply using more hot water than usual. However, if your hot water suddenly and unexpectedly stops working, then the issue is most likely with your water heater.
Gas Vs. Electric Water Heaters
To determine the issue with your hot water heater, you must first determine if your heater is gas or electric. For instance, with gas water heaters, you might have a problem with your gas line, pilot light, or thermostat. With electric water heaters, you might have a problem with the circuit breaker, electrical hook up or heating element. A licensed technician should have the knowledge and expertise to accurately diagnose your water heater issue and perform necessary repairs.
Solving the Problem
Sometimes, fixing your hot water heater is as simple as relighting your gas water heater’s pilot light or resetting an electric heater’s circuit breaker. However, it’s important to proceed with caution, especially if you have an electric heater. These are powerful devices, and the electric current can be life-threatening. Always talk to a licensed professional before attempting a DIY repair.
