Top Reasons Your Hot Water
is Lukewarm

What do you do when you’ve been looking forward to that steaming hot shower all day, but it turns out to be more of a lukewarm disappointment? It’s enough to bring you down! 

The hot water in your home works to clean your dishes, wash your clothes, and keep you nice and clean. When it’s not capable of doing that, it can be frustrating.

Here are three of the main reasons why your “hot water” might be coming out tepid or lukewarm. 

  1. Dip Tube Damage: Coldwater comes into your water heater tank through a dip tube. It’s supposed to be pushed to the bottom of the tank, away from the hot water outlet. However, if the piece is broken, it’ll leave the cold water on top and prevent proper heating. 

  2. Sediment Build-Up: The water that runs through your tank-based heater might be accompanied by minerals, sand, and other kinds of debris. Over time, these particles can gather at the bottom of your tank, blocking the heating element and making it harder to get your water to the proper temperature.

  3. An Outdated Water Heater: Depending on the age of your water heater, it could be naturally losing efficiency. This is especially true if you’ve been unable to keep up with regular maintenance. Once a water heater gets to be over a decade old, it will often start to fail in a number of ways that might lead to inefficient water heating. 

If you’re tired of dealing with tepid showers, contact us today to schedule a water heater inspection. 

Whether you need a simple repair or a full replacement to bring back your hot water, we’ll do a top-tier job you’re sure to love, all at an affordable price.

Had a water leak coming down an interior wall. Mike, Chris & Scotty were able to quickly assess and locate the source; then efficiently made repairs. They replaced a section of vent stack that was cracked; a difficult task but they were excellent. And they left the work area clean.

Tom and Normandy Woodward are SUPER PLEASED with each step of B and B working with us to tackle many issues over the past two months. I have to say that at the top of our list in outstanding persons/help are Rocco the Overseer of Operations (amazing), Frank Garcia and his partner Matt (awesome), Brian the scheduler (top-notch) and Norman Nickelson (a gentle genius who brilliantly solved a persistent problem). These guys are as professional, courteous and efficient as I've ever seen.
