Do you need your water heater repaired and live in or near Greer SC?
I’ll tell you, having to take a cold shower in the winter is the worst thing to have to do in the morning. Talk about a fast wake up. Your running late for work and need to get a quick shower and the water just won’t get hot enough, or it’s hot to start and then half way through your shower you run out of hot water.
If things simply never heat up, it’s probably because your water heater has been working overtime and needs time to regenerate. But if your hot water shower turns suddenly chilly, the problem may lay within the unit itself. Here is a quick way to solve any hot water shower troubles.
Water Heater Problems in Greer SC
First, check all your fixtures throughout the house to see if your cold water is a singular problem or a whole-house situation. If none of the plumbing allows hot water to pass, then the problem is your water heater. Check the temperature control on the unit to see if the setting is ideal. Next, check to see if it’s blown a fuse. If you have a gas unit, it could be that the pilot light has blown out, in which case you should relight it following the manufacturer’s instructions.
However, if there is still no sign of hot water after the pilot has been relit, then you may have a variety of problems: obstructions in the flue, a defective part (often the thermocouple), a faulty temperature control, sediment buildup, etc. For any of these more complex replacement projects and repairs, always hire a professional who can diagnose and fix the problem quickly and efficiently.
