We get it; there’s nothing worse than climbing into the shower only to find out that there’s no hot water. What’s even worse? Putting your clothes back on and getting into a clean bed when you could’ve done with some cleaning yourself.
At AEP, we believe in a cleaner city, which means cleaner, warmer people. Thus, we’ve created an entire department dedicated to domestic hot water problems. Above and beyond general electrics, we cover everything from hot water system installation, repair, replacement, and maintenance.
What is an electric hot water system?
An electric system uses electricity to heat water before distributing it to all access points. The water is stored in an insulated, cylindrical tank that’s wired to a 220-volt circuit. Current passes through one or more electrical-resistant heating elements heating the water. A thermostat is a switch that senses the temperature of the water, closing only to allow a flow of current if the water temperature drops.
Hot Water System Problems
Hot water systems surely aren’t immune to problems. Below are five common issues that lead to an ineffective system:
1. Broken or worn heating elements will undoubtedly affect your unit’s ability to produce warm water.
2. A defective thermostat is another frequent suspect, often failing to tell the heating elements when to heat the water.
3. A leaking tank could cause a shortage of hot water, as well as putting the system on the continuous pressure to produce heated water.
4. Electrical faults such as a blown fuse can be identified by looking at your switchboard.
5. An old system can start to show signs of ineffectiveness due to years of operation without maintenance.

Most hot water problems stems from not implementing maintenance when required.
