Before You Install a New Water Heater…

Posted by admin on May 7, 2017 in Troubleshooting, Water Heaters

Just because you aren’t getting hot water does not mean you need a new water heater.  If your water heater is new or newer there are cheaper repairs that need to be ruled out first.  If your water heater is brand new, make sure your thermostat is set correctly.  It may need nothing more than to be turned up.  If your water heater is electric, check your breaker and make sure you have power to the unit.  Your heater has a built in safety device that will turn off the power if it is overheating.  Usually, a new thermostat is all you will need to repair the water heater.  If your heater is a gas unit, make sure the pilot is lit.  If it won’t light, a new thermocouple may solve the problem.  Take the time to cross an inexpensive repair off your list before you replace your perfectly good water heater.
