Reasons Why You’re Running Out of Hot Water

Posted On June 14, 2021

Residential furnaces allow users to control consumption more precisely, regardless of the fuel used, obtaining exactly as much domestic hot water and heat as they need.

But what do you do if the furnace starts, but you are running out of hot water way to quickly?

These utility problems usually occur due to external factors. You need to determine if you have a faulty gas, electricity or water supply. It is quite possible that the water entering the furnace is not enough, which leads to its malfunction. The same thing happens if the gas flow is too low. In this case the furnace will go into failure mode and will operate with several interruptions. Regarding voltage oscillations and power outages, they can cause the fuse to blow up and, implicitly, the furnace to fail.

Also, if the water is not heated up properly, it can be due to the fact that the temperature may accidentally be set too low. However, the problem can also be caused by too much pressure in the cold water pipe, or it can simply be related to a problem with the thermostat (which may lose its accuracy).

In most of the cases, these issues can be fixed by a trusted Denver plumbing contractor and, if there is nothing else going on, you will be able to enjoy again the hot water you need.
