Why Isn’t My Water Hot Enough?

Posted on May 12th, 2016 by Jupiter Tequesta

Untitled design (2)Having trouble with your hot water?  There are a few reasons why the water coming out of your faucet or shower head isn’t warm enough.

First, check the temperature dial on your water heater.  If the water heater isn’t adjusted to 120 degrees, you may find that the water coming out of your shower isn’t hot enough. Wait a few minutes and check the water coming out of your faucet. If adjusting the temperature dial on your tank doesn’t do the trick, here are a few other reasons why you may not have enough water at home.

Your water heater isn’t big enough.  Did you install a new tub or high-flow shower head recently? An undersized water heater tank isn’t capable of distributing enough hot water throughout your home. If your water heater isn’t providing enough hot water, you might want to look into installing a tankless water heater that provides endless hot water.

Your water heater is leaking. Check around your tank to see if your water heater is leaking.  If you are losing water, not only will you not have enough hot water for your home, but your home will also be prone to water damage and mold/mildew growth.

Your water heater needs to be flushed. Minerals can build up in your water heater tank over time. These minerals can keep your water heater from working efficiently, meaning you may find that your water isn’t hot enough. Flush your water heater to get rid of these minerals.
