Why is there no Hot Water?

Hot water woes are one of the least desirable home headaches. You can
attempt to handle the repair yourself or
call a pro (NE Ohio only).

When there is no hot water it usually means the water heater is at fault.
There are a few things you can try to rectify the problem. First,
determine if it is gas or electric. If it electric it can only be a breaker or a
inoperable heating element. If electric check the breaker to see if it is in
the off or "tripped" position. If not it may be a faulty heating element.

For gas, try the following (Details below);
  1. Make sure the gas is on to the water heater.
  2. Water heaters need a continuous supply of fresh air-check to see  
    there are no obstructions (dust, boxes, junk) at the bottom of the
    water heater.
  3. The thermocouple may be at fault (very common)
  4. May be a thermostat or computer brain ailment if a newer heater.
  5. Exhaust vent may be blocked or improperly sized.

How much does it cost to hire a professional installation?

If you have done al that you can that it may be time to call a repairman. As of 2012 a typical 40-gallon gas water heater
installations in the Midwest are running about $625-750 for a vented standard water heater. A direct vent water heater
(generally found in homes built after 1996) costs more as much as $1200 in some cases.

Electric water heaters are by far much easier to install and therefore less labor involved. Expect to pay between $575-650
for a typical 40 gallon electric water heater installed.
