Hot water is in-demand daily to keep you and your home clean. The problem is that there never seems to be enough to do everything before it runs out. Let’s look at steps you can take to increase the hot water in your home to cover baths, dishwashing, showers, and laundry.

Insulate Those Pipes

One surefire way to keep more heated water throughout your system is to have your hot water pipes insulated. Heated water leaves the tank and travels through the piping system to faucets used to feed your baths, sinks, dishwashers, and clothes washer.

Bare and poorly insulated hot water pipes will cool the water as it moves through them. A professional can examine your system and encase it where needed.

Have Heating Elements Inspected

Heating element designs vary depending on the energy source — electric, gas, or solar — but these components often need replacing after six to 10 years of service. This metallic rod sits in the water and heats it directly. When it is not working, your system will not warm the water to the temperature set on the water tank’s thermometer.

Service technicians can inspect the heating element and change it out if needed. A new heating element often improves water temperatures and the speed at which the water tank replaces hot water.

A Properly Maintained Water Tank Produces More Hot Water

Your hot water tank and pipes need regular inspections and maintenance, just like other systems within the home. Tanks corrode over time, and sediment builds at the bottom. That buildup will negatively impact the water temperature.

A technician can inspect your entire water system and perform regular maintenance, like flushing the tank. Regular tune-ups can increase the tank’s ability to bring hot water to the faucets in your home.

Five-Star Customer Reviews

Evans Mechanical is an excellent service committed to customer satisfaction and guaranteed quality workmanship. Our water heater burst and they were very responsive. They sent a technician out the same day and it was determined the heater was beyond repair.

Excellent service from start to finish. Joe came out to give us an estimate on what we would need for a new furnace, never pressured us to buy the top of their line just giving us options on what we would need for our home. Then the date set for installation Thomas and Ryan came out on time and did a great job.

All three technicians worked well together. They treated each other kindly and were thoughtful and courteous with me. They did a final and complete cleanup after the installment of my new heater. They were respectful of my home. I’m grateful I used this company.
