  • Broken thermostat
  • Sediment Build Up


Depending on the make and model of your hot water system the life expectancy can be approximately 10 years or more and over time can cause your unit to become less and less efficient over time. Regular inspections could give you updates on how your system is running so you are not stuck without your hot water.

Broken Thermostat

Hot gasA thermostat is a component that regulates the gas intake from an attached fuel supply and if this is broken it won’t send a signal for the water to reheat the unit. This problem is relatively easy to be fixed and only by a professional who can assess the unit and check that it is a part to be fixed to improve efficiency.

Sediment Build Up

When water contaminants build up in the bottom of the hot water unit, it will cause clogging and will prevent the production of enough hot water.
