In the last couple of months, a single one of our roommates has come across some issues with the water. Ever since our downstairs powder room was completely remodelled following a major flooding event, she’s noticed some issues with the water in her powder room on the very upper level of our house. I told her to write down these things and I would look into them. As our landlord resides multiple states away and is kind of foolish, I care not to bother him until I can compile a list of evidence and possible scenarios, so he can think about who to hire and what actually needs fixing. She thought the water issue might be caused by a concern with our up-to-date plumbing, that perhaps something had diverted the water flow differently so now there is less pressure. However, she also noticed the water was no longer hot, but rather only tepid! Then I remembered I had learn on an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C website how this was a single one of the first signs of a water heating system starting to fail. So I pulled up that same Heating, Ventilation, and A/C company website once again on my phone and found another related article about the ways to tell if the water heating system was failing. But one of these is if you can feel heat coming off the water heater. This usually means its no insulated any longer so the water inside loses its temperature, thus delivering only luke warm water. I went down to inspect it and sure enough, there was just a ton of heat coming off the water heating system tank. So I took these concerns to our landlord and he’s sending out an Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business first thing this week to take a look at our system. Since the water heating system is so apparently ancient, its likely the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C business will recommend a completely up-to-date water heating system plan.
