Hot water is a daily luxury we often take for granted until it suddenly disappears. The frustration of turning on the faucet only to be met with a blast of icy water can be disheartening, leaving us wondering why our trusty water heater has abandoned us! At Affordable Service in Rio Rancho, we understand the importance of a reliable hot water supply, and we’re here to unveil the potential culprits behind your cold shower.

Water Heater Failure: The heart of your hot water system, the water heater, may be the primary suspect. Over time, these appliances can deteriorate or malfunction, leading to a lack of hot water. Affordable Service’s expert technicians can assess your water heater’s condition, providing timely repairs or replacement to restore your home’s hot water flow. If you think you may be ready to replace your water heater, take a look at this handy online guide.

Sediment in Water Heater: Over time, sediment buildup in your water heater can compromise its efficiency, resulting in colder water temperatures. Affordable Service offers professional flushing services to remove sediment, restoring your water heater’s optimal performance.

Recirculating Pump Failure: If your home is equipped, a recirculating pump ensures hot water circulates efficiently throughout your plumbing system. If this component fails, it can disrupt the distribution of hot water, resulting in cold showers. Our skilled professionals at Affordable Service have the knowledge and tools to diagnose and fix recirculating pump issues promptly and affordably.

Water Leak: Undetected water leaks can not only wreak havoc on your property but also lead to a drop in water temperature. Affordable Service employs advanced leak detection technologies to identify hidden leaks without causing unnecessary disruptions. Whether it’s under your slab or within the walls, we’ve got the expertise to locate and fix the issue. Reference our previous blog to find more information about water leaks under concrete slabs.

Gas Valve Failure: For homes with gas water heaters, a faulty gas valve can be the reason behind the lack of hot water. Our technicians are well-versed in gas water heater systems, ensuring a thorough examination to identify and address any valve-related issues promptly. But, if you suspect a gas leak inside or outside your home, leave the area and call 911 immediately. Here’s a link to the New Mexico Gas Company’s gas safety facts that can help you identify potential leaks.
