I agree with you. The foam insulation should only be on the Hot Water side. The cold water side doesn't make any difference, as that temperature rarely changes in California.

Hope this helped you AK, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hello

Set the thermostat to a higher temperature if you are experiencing insufficient hot water. There may also be sediment or lime in the tank. If you suspect there is, drain the tank and determine whether water treatment is needed.

Determine whether the electrical switch is turned on or if there is a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker if you have absolutely no hot water.your high temperature light switch may be open. If it is, reset it. Finally, you may have a non-functioning thermostat, which you'll need to replace.

The thermostat may also be improperly calibrated. In that case, you'll need to replace the thermostat. You may also have long runs of exposed piping that are allowing the water to cool, causing you to need more hot water. In this case, insulate the piping.

We are a bit confused by the device that you are using to heat the Hot water with- Is it an instantaneous HW heater?--
They are pressure sensitive-- Could it be, that your water pressure drops momentarily, (which causes the instantaneous heater to shut down its flame-- and you get a pulse of Cold water.)

If your hot water is a tank-- It is possible that something is cycling your hot water away-- like rinse pulses on the Washing machine)-- or your dishwasher?

Tell us more about the Rinnal Air Conditioners and what they have to do with Hot water and your SHower?

Water not hot enough, have to open more than one hot water faucet to get hot water


The Dip Tube "The dip what?" you might say. In every water heater, there is a plastic tube parked in the cold port that brings cold water to the bottom of the tank to be heated -- and preventing it from mixing with already-heated water in the top of the tank.
If that falls into the tank or splits or breaks, then cold mixes with hot and suddenly your water heater doesn't work nearly as well as before.
There's a ton of Americans out there who know all about this because of a debacle a few years ago. The company that makes most of the dip tubes in this country changed its formula for the plastic. The new plastic was prone to disintegrate in certain conditions. The operative time period was August 1993 to March 1996. Aside from gradually or suddenly having much less hot water, the telltale was finding bits of plastic clogging faucet aerators.
There was a scandal, class-action suit, and settlement. But the terms of that expired several years ago, so if you find you have the problem, all you can do is try to deal with it. Even after replacing the dip tube and flushing the tank, you might still find plastic bits for awhile. But at least the water will again be hot.
Debacles aside, you should also be aware that even good plastic will eventually become brittle with age and hot water. We've found dip tubes in old water heaters that were split and broken. It's entirely possible for a water heater to outlive its dip tube. Simply replacing this inexpensive part can restore your tank's function to new and save you the cost of a new heater. So think about that before you run out and buy a new one if you experience this problem.
You may also want to flush out any built sediment. Check this out.

Our hot water heater suddenly developed a deep humming sound. What should I do or check? Thank you! ~M.Hess~


Look around valves, put your hand on one, carefully for temp..., and see if you can determine the source. What happens is the rubber seats eventually start to fail and become loose. They can chatter on water flow.

My shower mixing valve will not adjust. The water is hot no matter what position I put it in. Makes for some really hot showers.


Are you using the wall instant hot shower heater? You should be careful, sometimes if all of sudden you only got hot water, you will get burned.

Call the supply companyright away.
