Here’s a fun fact: There isn’t actually a season where we use hot water more. In fact, Americans tend to use hot water equally throughout the entire year, which would make sense. We like hot, comfortable showers in the summer just as much as we do in the winter, and we tend to wash dishes with hot water regardless of the outdoor temperature. The only difference is that a water heater has to work harder in the wintertime than in the summertime, due to the temperature differential.
However, not having hot water in the wintertime can be absolutely brutal, since those hot showers do more heavy lifting on a chilly winter’s day. Even during our mild winters, having a malfunctioning water heater can be a big problem for homes with kids, pets, and elderly folks as showers and baths become a lot less comfortable.
So, here are a few ways to tell that your water heater is doing too much heavy lifting, and it’s likely to collapse and require water heater repair in Jupiter, FL.
