Running Out Of Hot water

Are you tired of running out of hot water?

There are several reasons why you might be running out of hot water. Some of them may be a simple fix and some may be more complex. Jordan & Sons Plumbing knows this and our trained plumbers in South Carolina know what to look for.

We find that a lot of times that water heaters are not sized properly to the home and the occupants in the home. A undersized water heater has to work much harder to supply hot water to your home. The proper sizing of a water heater uses less energy, lasts longer, and is more efficient. A small (50- to 66-gallon) storage tank is usually sufficient for one to two to three people. A medium (80-gallon) storage tank works well for three to four people. Of course all this is based on shower length, gallons used (high volume shower heads) and distance from water heater to fixtures. Undersized water heaters work harder and then some of the components just burn out.

Did you know the manufactures of water heaters recommend that your water heater be serviced once a year. By doing this it allows the heater to run more efficient and helps keep your energy cost down.

Burned out water heater elements waste energy and run up utility bills. One of our plumbers can go through a series of tests to check your tank water heater for proper operation. No matter what the problem may be we can take care of curing those cold showers!
