Why Your Home Isn’t Getting Any Hot Water

Why Your Home Isn’t Getting Any Hot Water

There nothing worst then being in the middle of a hot shower and suddenly finding there no hot water,  a very unpleasant experience. There could be a couple of reasons why your water heater may suddenly have stopped working, so with that mind it’s always a good idea to know a little bit about how your water heater operates.With that in mind, let’s take a look at some common reasons why your home may not be getting any hot water.

Sediment Build-up

This one tends not to be sudden, still, it is fairly common and equally infuriating. Sediment can build up on the bottom of your water heater tank, often due to exposure to hard water. If enough sediment builds up on the bottom of the tank, it can act as an insulating agent. The heat from the burner assembly won’t be able to make it to the water, because it won’t be able to penetrate the layer of sediment. A straight forward solution to this is to flush the tank to get rid of the sediment.

Broken Dip Tube

The dip tube is a long tube that runs from the water line to the bottom of the tank. Cold water flows from this tube into the water heater, ensuring that it has time to be heated before flowing out of the tank. If the tube is cracked or broken, it will leak cold water directly into the hot water that is already in the tank. This typically presents itself as random cold blasts of water interspersed with hot water. The best way to fix this is just to have professionals replace the dip tube.
