There is panel on the side that you open by taking one screw off and looking inside , now you can turn the heat up and down with the switch inside the access panel.

Hot water heater has hot in tank but dose not come out of hot water line on tank


most electric hot water systems use a heat transfer process where the element is in one tank and the house water is in another
the house water is what is being drawn off when you turn on a tap
there is a regulator valve at the top of the tank with a small lever that you open up to let water in and air out of the system
another point is that there may be a hot/cold mixer on the hot water outlet which limits the temperature of hot water to prevent scalding injuries in the bath and shower or sink
If you have one fitted they are known to malfunction and cut the hot water temperature down as, they mix too much cold water into the hot water pipe.
have a plumber check it out

Oil furnace only produces cool water intermittedly and only when heat is actively on


For clarity, a Furnace produces HOT AIR for heat while a boiler produces HOT WATER for heat. Just remember...boil = water. You said your "furnace" does not produce hot water for a shower and because furnaces do not product hot water unless they have some model that do???? Usually people with a furnace have a seperate hot water heater. People with boilers though can produce hot water for use as both their sinks/showers hot water and their heat (by heating water that goes through baseboards) in their house. I don't believe any furnaces produce hot water most of the time a furnace just produces hot air for heating. So figure out what you first have.
Having said that, I'll assume you have a boiler like I do and my Weil McClean(sp?) stopped working a while back and wasn't turning on to "boil" any water. I took apart the burner and there is a light sensing photo resistor as part of the controls. If this phto resistor goes bad, the boiler will not start. The resister is cheap, I think it was $8 but you have to know what you're doing to change it. So you may be better to call someone who can work on such equipment.
Boiler's themselves are not overly complex. Home heating oil is the same diesel fuel that you can buy in a gas station only the government has "oil" companies put a RED die in home heating fuel which is usually cheaper then Diesel fuel because diesel fuel is taxed to death. The reason they do that is so that if you try putting RED tinted home heating fuel in your truck and you get pulled over (because you're a trucker with and 18 wheeler and they typically do inspections of these trucks) you will be a huge fine if they see you're running home heating fuel and NOT paying your taxed by purchasing Diesel fuel. A little bit of background so you know the fuel you are dealing with here. So it's dieslel fuel without the tax you run in your boiler. Gasoline on the other hand is VERY explosive as you know, but diesel fuel (if you're ever tried to light it) takes some coaxing to get lit. When it's cold out, diesel fuel is very hard to light and that's why trucks use glow plugs. You don't need those in your home though.
But because diesel fuel/home heating oil is hard to light, it's sprayed as a msit into your boiler, so that it can light more easily.
But because it is a fuel, you should know what you're doing when messing with it. FInd out what you have, and then have someone work on the issue if you haven't already. I'm guessing you have had it fixed by now?

Water pressure decreases as the water runs


Probably a clog in galvanized pipe.
Expansion tank is not whole-house pressure regulating tank. It is localized protection for plumbing exposed to high pressure caused by very hot water.
If you house has pressure regulating valve, then that can be a cause.
For low water pressure in household, the following link might help:

Low pressure on hot water taps and showers


Many states building codes require a pressure regulator and expansion tank for hot water heater installation. Check the pressure regulator if you have one as this would only affect the hot water pressure. Adjust or replace. Rap the expansion tank like knocking hard on a door. Hollow sound is good. Dull thud means it needs to be replaced as it is filled with water.

Parkray Cumbria efficiency problem


Some circulation pumps have a 3 phase mixing valve (cold,warm,hot) to regulate the water pressure in the building; no way to know unless you trace the plumbing. Basically, the hot water temperature could be lost because the circ-pump is cooling it with the cold water supplied to it. This is used to balance the pressure (aka Pressure Balancing Circ-Pump), so heater is really working overtime to heat the water. If the pump has two in and one out that's more than likely your problem; but you should consult a "old-school" plumber in your area.
