Warm water or hot water is coming out of the cold water faucets in my home. It's using the oil in my boiler very quickly. I have to be buying oil in the summer time.

My boiler dosent come on i have no hot water but when i turn the heating on boiler works but still no hot water what should i do


Hot water is gravity fed through your pipes. When you turn the faucet on the water will flow through the pipes. If your hot water heater is natural gas driven relight the pilot. Same if oil fueled. If electrical, check fuse to see if it has blown or the circuit breaker has tripped. If either has tripped, replace it and if it blows again the heater has a serious failure, you might need to buy a new one. If pilot won't light on gas unit, try relighting after 5 minutes, could be a bad thermocouple.

Water does not stay hot it is uneven in shower, from cold to hot then hot to cold


Ok that sounds more life a faucet that is bad. In today world, the newer (20 years and less) they have pressure balance faucets. Have the faucet serviced. NOW lets look at an other area check out your home to see if you have a cross connection. A cross connetion is a place where hot and clod water meet. I know that everywhere but the toilet!

Yes thats true. But we buy all kinds of things that we attach to a fauects or tub spouts. Lets say you attached a hose to the sink in the garage to wash the dog with warm water. if you turned the water off at the handle of the hose and you left the water on at the faucet. BINGO

the hot and cold water mix and then up and down water temp while taking a shower.

So start looking first before spending any money. if ANYTHING is attached to any faucet take it OFF and then take a shower.

Be safe

Thanks

Tom ( how did we do ?) :)

Empty boiler


Turn main water off to the water heater, it may be a valve on cold side coming in to shut off. Next turn power off to the heater and drain the tank the drain will be located near the bottom of the tank.
You will need a water hose to connect to the drain to run water outside. Open a faucet hot side to allow you to drain the tank.

Upon reinstall connect the tank up and fill tank and open up hot side on one faucet at a time to purge out air from system before turning power back on. Make sure you have water flowing from each faucet's hot side before turning power back on.

How often do you use that faucet? If not used often you might just "work" that valve every two or three weeks to prevent the standing water from doing its deed.

Astoria SAE 1 trickle of water from hot water faucet


Some models have an economiser valve, which mixes hot water from boiler with cold from inlet line, that could be closed or obstructed. The line from the boiler to the solenoid or the pipe inside the boiler could be blocked.

Modern shower valves have an "anti scald device" in them to prevent scalding from to hot water.

They come preset at 120 degrees.

Sometimes they can start to malfunction and all you get is warm, not hot water, they can also be intermittent.

This will only effect the shower valve though, not the other faucets.
