Need hot water

If your electric water heater is not producing any hot water, it may be due to an element that has burnt out and needs replacing. This problem can also be caused by a problem with the electrical supply to the water heater. If you are getting hot water for a very short time and then it gets cold, or you get a burst of very hot water, it's likely a problem with the thermostat.

We get a lot of questions in the forum about water heater problems -- If you'd like to have a contractor take a look at this, we can help you find one, here.
