Tips / Troubleshooting
If you're in a bind, you may want to try a few solutions on your own before calling a plumber. Below are a few tips on trying to fix your hot water:
If you've run out of hot water, wait 20 to 30 minutes. Water heaters can only hold a certain amount of water but take 20 to 30 minutes for more water to be heated. If you've waited for the recovery time and there's still zero hot water, then it's time to call a plumber.
Time Your Showers
Your hot water can quickly drain during a shower. Aim to take 10 to 15 minute long showers to prevent you from running out of hot water.
If It’s Been Cold, Check Your Pipes
If you have been experiencing extremely cold weather, your pipes could be frozen and restricting hot water flow.
Check How Old Your Water Heater Is
Water heaters have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years, so if your water heater is in that age range or beyond, it may be time for a water heater replacement compared to just a repair.
Water heaters can be difficult to figure out so it's still a great idea to have a plumber come out. A-Total Plumbing is here to help you with your hot water issues.
