Water heaters provide a great deal of value to Kent homeowners and residents. However, just like most things in life, they don’t last forever. The water heater in your Kent home will eventually expire, and there comes a time that during its lifespan it will need occasional maintenance. If something goes wrong, a heater could be repaired. However, sometimes replacing it is necessary.

What are the causes of hot water heater temperature issues? The majority of these issues are listed below.

Here are some common causes of water heater temperature issues.

Thermostat settings. One reason why the heater in your Kent home isn’t working right is because of the settings in your thermostat. It is possible that the settings were left at a lower than preferable setting. 

Functionality. Obviously, the job of a water heater is to regulate the temperature of the water in your home. And if the water is taking too long to warm up, or is not warming up at all, it is probably because your heater is not functioning as it should. 

Heating element. A sudden pause of the hot water in your home may be because the heating element in your water tank has given out. For example, if the heating element is a coil in your tank, it could have stopped working properly. A professional can take a look at your heater and provide the diagnosis and repair as needed.

Size of the tank. If you constantly experience that the hot water in your home runs out, it may be that the tank is not large enough to provide enough warm water throughout all the appliances in your home. If this is the case, you may need to get a new one so that you can have warm and hot water supply throughout your home in Kent.

Location of the tank within your home. If your tank is located outside, the cold weather may be affecting the operations of the tank. This is especially true if you live in a particularly colder climate. 

Call a local plumber to take a look at your water tank situation if you are having issues. This way, you can have a comfortable experience with using the water in your home.
