No Hot Water In the Whole House
Why is there no hot water in my house?
You wake up one morning and find out that there is no hot water in your house. How could this happen? It’s not as if you haven’t paid the water bill on time, so why does it seem like every month something goes wrong with your home’s plumbing?
We here at Rescue Plumbing get many calls from customers who report that they do not have hot water in their whole house.
The main culprit 95% of the time
Nearly 95% of the time, the water heater is the source of the problem.
Water heaters fail for many reasons.
Water heater pilot assembly malfunction
One of the most common reasons water heaters fail is that the pilot assembly for the water heater is not in working condition. All water heaters have a pilot assembly.
The pilot assembly is located inside the water heater towards the bottom of the tank.
What does a pilot assembly do?
The purpose of the pilot assembly is to provide a spark and ignite the gas that fuels the water heater.
This pilot assembly for your water heater is triggered by a thermostat that tells it when to turn on.
Every time you use hot water on your property, the thermostat tells the pilot assembly to turn on. This pilot assembly will eventually wear out.
Schedule yearly maintenance for your water heater
Many people do not know this but water heaters require yearly maintenance.
An important part of a water heater’s yearly maintenance is opening the combustion chamber where the pilot assembly sits and removing all debris caused by combustion so that the debris does not affect the pilot assembly’s functioning.
Sometimes, if there is no hot water in the home, it’s possible that a quick draft blew out the pilot flame and the water heater needs to be reignited.
There should always be directions on the water heater that explain how to turn the water heater on.
The manufacturer of the water heater also has owner’s manuals available online with directions. Troubleshooting guides with error code explanations.
There have also been a few instances when a call for ‘no hot water in the whole house’ was the result of a blocked hot water line.
