Why Don’t I Have Hot Water?

No Gas Supply
The gas supply (link to water heater repair page) to your water heater may have been accidentally shut off, the line may be clogged or damage, or a broken gas valve may be preventing gas from reaching your unit.
Pilot Light Is Out
There are a number of reasons a water heater’s pilot light (link to water heater repair page) may extinguish. You may have a dirty or clogged burner, blocked or damaged thermocouple, air in the gas line, defective gas valve or blocked ventilation.
Faulty Thermostat or Burner
If water isn’t getting hot enough, a failed thermostat or burner (link to water heater repair page) may be the cause.
Loose connections on a water heater (link to water heater repair page) can cause the unit to function improperly.
A leak in your hot water heater’s tank (link to water heater repair page) could prevent water from reaching the proper water temperature.
Improper Tank Size
It’s possible your water heater unit (link to water heater installation page) isn’t large enough to meet your household’s needs.
Outdated Water Heater
