We all have our routines in the morning, and typically it includes a shower or bath. So here you are, ready to take that nice hot shower and instead you are greeted with freezing cold water. Since this is the first time using the water that day, you already know you didn’t run out of hot water. Possibly the pilot light is out on the water heater, and in that case it’s best to consult the owners manual to see how and where to relight it. However, if these aren’t the causes, a bigger problem is looming. When it is time to replace your water heater, although most of us try to cut costs as much as possible, doing it yourself is not a good idea. This unit is usually large and heavy and keep in mind it is a pressurized container. Rather than take on a project without the experience and knowledge needed, call a professional qualified plumber to get the job done and your hot water running again.
