The place where you’d want hot water the most decides to stop working!? What a disaster! We hear it all the time: why is there no hot water coming out of my shower!? We’re here to answer all your questions.
Many people experience no hot water coming out of their shower. We all know how uncomfortable it could be to have an ice-cold shower. If this is the case, there could be multiple issues causing this:
- Shower mixer valve is damaged
- Anti-scald device is set too high
- You don’t have enough hot water
- Hot water heater isn’t turning on
Shower mixer valve is damaged
If your shower mixing valve is damaged, it is stopping hot water from mixing properly into your shower water. This tool mixes the cold water and hot water to control the water temperature of the water coming out of your shower. If it’s worn out, old, broken or damaged, it doesn’t do its job properly. This causes no hot water to come out of your shower.
Anti-scald device is set too high
If you have hot water coming out of your sink but not your shower, the issue could be that your anti-scald device is set too high. This is a safety feature so extremely hot water doesn’t blast out of your shower. It could be a simple anti scald device adjustment and hot water temperature tested to see if it’s to your liking.
You don’t have enough hot water
When there are multiple people running water or showers at the same time, your hot water is being consumed in other areas which cause an insufficient amount of hot water to come out of your shower.
Hot water heater isn’t turning on
We’ve seen on multiple occasions maintenance issues with gas heaters and electric heaters that affect the hot water coming out of your shower. Your water heater may have technical defects and the geyser stops turning on. This may need a professional to repair it or completely replace so the same issue doesn’t arise again.
