You can depend on Dr. Pipe for boiler or water heater repair when you have no hot water in your Toronto home or property.

For instance, an idle boiler can develop issues with its heating elements in either a conventional system or a combination boiler. As your Toronto plumber, we can advise you on some simple tests to perform yourself. 

If you think there’s a problem or are unsure, it’s always best to call Dr. Pipe when there’s a lack of hot water.

No Hot Water in Toronto? Here’s What to Do

It can quickly become a major hassle when you have no hot water in the house or a property you own. 

Start by identifying if you have an electric water heater or a water leak in your water heater tank. Whatever you do, call us at Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing because we can help you determine if it’s a simple fix.

We specialize in energy-efficient tankless water heaters that we’ve installed in many Toronto homes for our happy customers.

Why Hot Water Heaters Might Have No Hot Water?

If there’s no hot water in the house, it might be a simple solution or a more complicated problem.

Here’s what can be wrong with your water heater: 

1. The circuit breaker is tripped

We often get calls from customers in Toronto who have no hot water. When dealing with electric water heaters, the first thing to do is check if the circuit breaker has tripped. 

2. The heating element is damaged

A common problem with electric water heaters is a breakdown of the heating element. Call us to fix this problem quickly and efficiently, because a licensed plumber should do this job.

3. Faulty thermostat

A broken or faulty thermostat must be replaced to get hot water in Toronto.

You can recognize if the thermostat fails when you have warm water, but it never gets hot enough. Dr. Pipe can determine what’s wrong with your thermostat — the lower part controls the bottom, and the upper part controls both heating elements.

4. Low pressure on the boiler 

There is a gauge on your boiler that should be easy to read. If the gauge shows a pressure below 1, it can indicate either a leak or a problem with the relief valve on the pressure gauge. 

Dr. Pipe has years of experience handling these water heater repairs quickly and affordably.

5. Water tank leak

Any water leak is a fairly serious sign, but a lack of hot water due to a leaky water heater will leave nothing but cold water for bathing, which gets very uncomfortable.

It’s relatively easy to check for a water leak. First, ensure the pipes and valves around the water heater are secure. If they aren’t, call Dr. Pipe for a water heater repair.

If the connections on your water heater are secure, look into the compartment on your tank. When there’s no water in the tank, that’s a major sign that you need to replace your water heater, so call us!

6. Inefficient water heater tank

Water heater Toronto

When you have no hot water in Toronto, it might not be a case of water heater repair but rather an old and inefficient tank.

If you’re constantly running out of hot water, upgrading to a more energy-efficient water heater tank is a wise solution.

Tankless water heaters are the most popular option for no hot water in Toronto, delivering hot water on demand in a compact-sized water heater that saves space.

7. Cold patches on radiator heating elements

Over time, the sludge builds up in older radiators and causes uneven heat distribution.

8. Strange sounds 

If you have no hot water in Toronto and hear the radiator banging, gurgling, or even whistling, let Dr. Pipe know! Each sound helps our licensed plumbing technicians to identify what the problem is.

9. Frozen pipes 

In frigid temperatures, naturally produced waste gases can turn into frozen water on the condensate pipes outside your home, resulting in a blockage. 

Frozen pipes can become serious, so call Dr. Pipe immediately to fix the problem before it worsens.

10. Boiler issues that cause no hot water

If you notice low boiler pressure, the boiler might turn itself off. It can be challenging to determine if it’s due to a faulty pump or a system blockage. Call Dr. Pipe for the right diagnosis and proper fix.

11. The heat and hot water come and go in your home

Call Dr. Pipe to determine if there’s an airlock in your system, low water levels, or broken motorized valves or diaphragms.

Fix No Hot Water in Toronto With Tankless Water Heaters

Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing specializes in more than just water heater repair. We are your licensed plumbing experts in Toronto for tankless hot water heaters that can save energy costs and make your life much easier!

Tankless water heaters solve no hot water issues and offer much higher efficiency. A large storage tank with tankless water heaters is unnecessary, so they’re great for apartments and smaller homes.

You’re also helping the environment because tankless water heaters only fire up during use, and ask us about modulating condensing type of water heaters that provide even more fuel savings.

No Hot Water in Toronto FAQs:

1. What is a boiler condensate pipe, and how do I check for problems?

A frozen boiler condensate pipe can become a big problem when the temperature dips below freezing outside.

Suppose your heating system makes a gurgling noise, and the boiler turns off. In that case, your system may be experiencing a failsafe mechanism to keep water from flowing backward and into the boiler system, which can cause serious electrical damage.

You can look for the plastic pipe running outside from your boiler. If you think it’s frozen, try pouring warm water—never boiled water—down the pipe to thaw it. If you think the pipe has been unfrozen, reset the boiler and see if it works.

Feel free to call Dr. Pipe if you’re uncertain about this test or unable to perform the check.

2. What to do if you have burst pipe in Toronto? 

Turn off the water and call Dr. Pipe. When a pipe bursts, always turn off the water supply and call the plumbing professionals at Dr. Pipe. It’s dangerous to touch electric parts exposed to water, so always turn off the system via the fuse box and switch off electric immersion heaters to minimize boiler damage.

3. Why I suddenly have no hot water at home in Toronto?

There are many reasons why you may not have hot water. Hot water heaters can lose power quickly. If your system is still on, check for water leaks and give Dr. Pipe a call for further assistance!
