- On a gas water heater, the gas control valve (thermostat) could be broken.
- For an electric water heater, one of the electric elements or thermostats could have burned out.
- The dip tube inside the water heater could be bad, causing a reduced flow of hot water through your pipes.
- If your water heater is old (8+ years) or if you live in an area with hard water your water heater could be full of sediment. This will reduce the amount of hot water a water heater can make.
If you are new to the residence the tank may be undersized for your needs or smaller than the water heater in your previous home.
Your hot water needs / habits may have increased over time.
