Common Reasons a Water Heater Isn’t Making Water Hot

When your water heater is failing to provide hot water, there are several potential explanations. Here are four possible reasons why a water heater may fail to make water hot:

  • Failing Pressure Valve: The relief valve on a water heater is designed to release excess pressure and prevent the tank from exploding. If the valve is faulty or malfunctioning, it may be continuously releasing hot water, causing a decrease in temperature. 
  • Failing Heating Element: Electric water heaters utilize heating elements to warm the water inside the tank. Over time, these heating elements can wear out or become damaged, resulting in insufficient heat production.
  • Water Leaks. When water leaks from the tank, it may not have enough time to heat up properly before exiting the system. Furthermore, leaks in the pipes can result in a loss of pressure and reduce the amount of hot water available. 
  • Gas Leaks: For gas-powered water heaters, leaks can result in insufficient heating. Gas leaks can occur due to a faulty gas valve or damaged gas line connections. It is crucial to address gas leaks promptly, as they pose a safety hazard. 

When encountering any of these issues, it is advisable to call our technicians ASAP. Fast action may be able to prevent more expensive repairs. 

The Benefits of Water Heater Maintenance

Over time, sediment, such as minerals and debris, can accumulate at the bottom of your water heater tank. Regular maintenance by our team is a way of proactively staying ahead of potential repair costs. Sediment buildup in the tank can cause various issues, including reduced efficiency and performance. Here are four key benefits of regularly draining sediment from your water heater:

  • Lower Energy Costs: The sediment insulation buildup hinders heat transfer between the heating element and the water. The water heater then needs to work harder and consume more energy to heat the water adequately. By regularly draining sediment, you improve the efficiency of the heating process, leading to lower energy consumption and reduced utility bills.
  • Water Heats Up Faster: Sediment buildup not only reduces energy efficiency but also slows down the heating process. With a layer of sediment lining the bottom of the tank, it takes longer for the heat to reach the water. Regularly draining sediment removes this barrier, allowing the water to heat up faster. 
  • A Quieter Water Heater: The sediment buildup can create a layer of insulation between the heating element and the water, resulting in noise as the water heats up. 
  • Longer Lifespan: By draining sediment regularly, you prevent excessive strain on the system, reducing the risk of damage and prolonging the lifespan of your water heater.
