Hot water unit don’t last forever and at some point they will give out. There are also several reasons why your hot water unit gave up. It’s great to know these reasons so you can address the issue quickly. They include:
- Hot water unit is old. Your hot water unit is not the same with wine that gets better with time. Hot water units just get old and cause costly problems. In general, a hot water unit can function around a decade (10 years). Longer than that, it is important that you get your service checked to see if it will soon need to be replaced. A quick inspection may find a small fault that can be rectified and give years to your old system or it might be something more serious and save you having a cold shower on a chilly morning.
- Your thermostat could be the problem. It might not be your entire unit’s fault but just the thermostat, the component that regulates gas intake from an attached fuel supply. If your thermostat is broken, your hot water unit won’t receive the signal to heat your water.
- Sediment build up. Over time, water contaminants can build up the bottom of your hot water unit, preventing it from producing ample hot water. Bunbury water often has high levels of Calcium and sometimes Iron so get your hot water unit checked and make sure to clean it against sediments build up.
