There are few things more annoying than running out of hot water in the middle of a shower. But don’t panic. It’s more than likely something with your hot water heater. Typically it may be something simple that you can take care of yourself. However, some things do need the assistance of a professional plumber. If you run into this situation, try troubleshooting or call Ranger Heating and Cooling and one of our experienced plumbers can either give you advice or come out to your home to get your hot water running again.
There are two types of water heaters: electric and gas. For each type, there are different steps to diagnose where the problem lies. However, for either type you may first want to:
• Check if your tank size is adequate for your home’s water needs. If you’ve got more than two people living in your home, you may need a larger tank than what you currently have. It takes time for your tank to reheat enough water to refill the tank. So if this might be the case in your home, wait about 30 minutes and retry the hot water. If this works, it might be time to consider upgrading. Or maybe a tankless water heater would be best for your home. Call Ranger Heating and Cooling to discuss your options.
• Increase the thermostat temperature by a couple of degrees. Ideally, you want your water heater temperature set between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (120 degrees if you have small children in the home to avoid burning that sensitive skin). If you do adjust it, allow about 30 to 40 minutes for the hot water to return.
If these two options do not produce hot water, follow the instructions below, depending on your water heater type, to assist with your troubleshooting.
