Did you use to love taking baths at the end of a long day? Were you excited to relax in a soothing bubble bath in your jetted tub? Are you no longer excited to take baths because your water heater doesn’t get your water hot enough or can’t provide enough hot water to fill your Jacuzzi bathtub? You may need water heater repair in Baltimore if your water heater can’t heat your bathwater anymore. Thankfully, there are ways to get your water heater back up to speed so you can get back to your relaxing, evening bubble baths.
Roto-Rooter can help you with water heater repair if your unit isn’t performing as it used to. However, you can fix certain problems with your water heater yourself if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person. One of the most common things that can cause bathwater to be cooler than preferred is that the thermostat on the water heater isn’t turned up high enough. It’s an incredibly easy problem to fix. All you need to do is locate the thermostat on your water heater and turn it up to your desired temperature. However, be careful that you do not turn it up too high because it can cause rumbling in your pipes and can create a scalding hazard. To prevent scalding, never turn up the water heater’s thermostat past 120-degrees Fahrenheit.
Another issue that could interfere with enjoyment of your jetted tub is that your water heater doesn’t have a big enough capacity to handle your water needs.
