We’ve all been there. You wake up one morning and there’s no hot water. What can you do in such a situation? In this article, we discuss the steps you can take towards resolving any problems with your water heater.
Check the thermostat setting
Well, you’re only human. Sometimes, the “problem” can be as simple as an incorrectly configured thermostat. Check the temperature setting and adjust it upwards as necessary.
Make sure your gas supply is OK
If you use a gas appliance to heat up your water then check to see if the pilot light is still switched on. If it’s out then there may be a problem with your gas supply itself, in which case you should contact your local provider for more information.
Turn off the power
In the event where you plan on attempting repairs yourself (not recommended), always make sure to first turn off the power supply to your water heater. This is VITAL. Not following this guideline can lead to electric shock and, in the worst case scenario, death.
Call your plumber for help
Water heaters are expensive appliances but that’s not all. They are potentially dangerous in the wrong hands. This is not your typical DIY activity and it follows that most people should not be trying to resolve any issues by themselves. We strongly recommend that you turn to professional plumbers in Los Angeles to fix your problem.
