Spring has begun, and things are warming up fast. You can put away your winter coats and begin changing your wardrobe over to more comfortable clothing. Less long sleeves and more short pants are great for staying cool. But even when the weather is beautiful outside, you will still want your shower to be warm.
By the time you find out there is no hot water, it will already be too late.
If something goes wrong with your hot water heater, you and your family will be taking speed showers until you pay to get it fixed. It is hard to look your best when you are bathing as fast as you can.
Pilot Lights and Leaky Pipes
Many things can go wrong with your hot water heater. Whether you own a Kenmore or a General Electric, they all act up sooner or later.
The problem could be as simple as the pilot light is out, keeping the water from heating up inside the tank and leaving cold water running out of your shower and faucets.
But while the pilot light might be the most well-known part of the water heater to troubleshoot, there are plenty of other potential problems.
Water leaking from the top of the water heater could be one of a few things, and this is a different problem from water leaking at the bottom. Unless you know what you are doing, you can end up making the situation worse, possibly causing the entire unit to need replacing.
If there is no hot water at all, this could range from a tripped circuit in the breaker box to a failure of the heating elements themselves. In this case, the unit will likely need replacing.
Another potential issue could be the thermostat, which can leave you without hot water. No one wants to be in the shower and have the water turn cold while you still have shampoo in your hair or soap in your eyes.
Give yourself the peace of mind you deserve by protecting your showers and your hot water heater with a home warranty. No matter if your unit needs to be repaired or replaced, you will be covered in the event of a failure.
Don’t let spring showers catch you by surprise. Keep your water warm and your budget cool.
