3 Reasons Why Your Water Isn't Hot, Springfield, Pennsylvania

It can be disappointing to prepare for a relaxing hot bath only to find out that the water is barely lukewarm. Water heating problems are typically a result of a struggling heater. The professionals at Adams Heating & Cooling provide a variety of repair services for the West Springfield, PA, community. They've worked with multiple clients complaining of water heating issues, and, over the years, they noticed certain trends. 

3 Common Reasons for a Water Heating Problem

Thermostat Set Incorrectly

Water HeatingWhen you experience water heating problems, you should first check your thermostat. It is typically located at the front of the unit and controls the water temperature. On some models, the thermostat can easily turn, so it may have simply been moved down to a lower temperature. Take a look at the water heater's thermostat, and, if it’s set lower than you'd like, simply turn it up to the proper setting. Follow the label instructions to ensure you don’t set it too high.  

Mineral Buildup

All water contains some level of natural minerals, and, after a while, the mineral deposits can build up in your system and cause the water heater to malfunction. This problem typically occurs in homes with well water or those that skip out on their yearly maintenance. Mineral buildup can be resolved by scheduling a system flush with your local water heating contractor.

Pilot Light or Heating Element Issue

Gas water heaters use a burner powered by a pilot light to warm up the water while electric-powered water heaters use a heating element. If these items fail, then the unit can’t heat the water. Such a problem is hard to diagnose on your own, so call a professional to locate and repair the issue.

If your water doesn't heat up, contact the water heating experts at Adams Heating & Cooling. The West Springfield company also maintains heating and cooling systems by providing a variety of repair and maintenance HVAC services.
