Harrisburg, PA, Hot Water

Running out of hot water in the middle of a shower can be one of the most jolting experiences, especially during the cold winters here in Harrisburg, PA. We are most commonly running out of hot water when guests come to visit, but this doesn’t have to be the norm. Ready & Able would like to give you a few tips on how to prevent this from happening to you:

  1. Know your limits—look at the capacity of your water heater and realize that tank heaters will only deliver 2/3 of their capacity.
  2. Know the refill time—once the tank is empty, it takes about 20 minutes to refill the tank, and another 20 to fully heat the water.
  3. Separate shower times—taking into account the first two items in the list, it would also help to schedule shower times so that they don’t all happen at once.
  4. Check for other issues—if you try everything here, smell something like rotten eggs, have uneven pressure or spurts of water, or popping or cracking sounds, then you need to contact a licensed plumber.
