Why is your water heater not heating enough? Do you have this question over and over? The thermostat is set correctly but still experiencing this issue? Plumbers In Essex can help with this problem and fix the issue. Also, there are a number of things for you to check before calling us.

1. Your dip tube can be damaged.

The dip tube is where the cold water enters the water heater and is sent to the bottom of the tank so it can be quickly heated. If the tube is damaged the water will remain at the top of the tank, where the hot water outlet is, causing it to return cold water to get returned with the heated water.

2. Some sediment has accumulated at the base of the tank of your water heater.

Minerals in the water can build up at the bottom of the water heater over time. This will result in a gradual loss of heating efficiency, as the burners work harder to heat the water. Flushing the tank annually will prevent sediment build-up.

3. Your water heater’s heating system is malfunctioning.

Most water heater problems can be traced to these systems thermal switch, thermostat, and heating element. A licensed plumber Essex should be the one to inspect the water heater and repair the problem.

4. Your water heater is too far from where hot water is needed.

If the water eventually gets hot enough after a running for a while, the problem is often that the tank is too far away from where hot water is needed.

5.Your water heater tank is too small.

If you’re noticing that your water heater is running out of water suddenly it could be that your water heater tank is simply too small to keep up with demand. Installing a larger tank or tankless water heater will ensure that you have all the water your household needs.
