Why is my Water Not Hot Enough?

Why is my Water Not Hot Enough?

Picture this: after a long day of work, you come home, turn on the shower and find that the water is ice cold. Many people are plagued with faulty faucets and plumbing systems, which leave their bathrooms subpar.

If you’ve tried adjusting the water temperature yourself and still can’t get your water’s temperature to rise, then you may want to call in a professional plumber to take a look. Still not sure what the culprit could be? Here are a few possibilities:

Broken Water Heater

One of the most obvious reasons for continuously cold water is a broken water heater. But lucky for you, a broken heater doesn’t always need a complete replacement. Believe it or not, many small problems can go awry with a water heater, especially if the system is old.

Typically, a water heater’s performance begins to dwindle once it hits the age of 10. If you’re not sure whether it’s the tank itself or a part within, then it’s always best to contact Parobek Plumbing, LLC to solve the mystery and repair the problem at hand.

Tank Build-up

Another potential cause of that blizzard-like water is tank build-up. Over time, tank build-up occurs, leaving sediment and other dirt from your pipes trapped in the storage tank. When this happens, you won’t be able to get your water hot enough no matter how long you let it run. The solution? A simple tank cleaning by a professional could help restore your water to its former glory.

Broken Thermostat

Although it still works, you may also have a broken thermostat. Just because something is running doesn’t mean it’s functioning properly; with a faulty thermostat, your hot water won’t reach its desired temperature. Hot water will be in short supply if your water heater’s thermostat is out of commission — so you may want to have it checked out if your own adjustments haven’t made a difference.

As a real estate agent I need trades that can respond fast with detailed estimates. Parobek exceeded both of the expectations I had for detail response time and estimates. I will use them again and will refer them to future clients.

I called Parobek Plumbing and Air Conditioning late this morning because my clogged toilet wasn't unclogging with the methods that normally work. It was important because I only have one toilet and work from home. It's 3 o'clock and Daniel left about 20 minutes ago and I have my unclogged toilet working perfectly now.

The worker looked for a plumbing leak and was very thorough, patient, and kind. He did not stop until I found the problem and took the time to explain it to me in detail. I would hire him again. Very good.

Today's service was just a switch-out of a faucet. I'm very satisfied. Within the last week, I had a number of of jobs done, including installation of a reverse osmosis system. I have been exceedingly pleased. The service was prompt, professional and everyone was courteous and knowledgeable. Thanks.
