Question about Heating & Cooling
My 40 gal hot water heater wil not work the water wont get hot we just installed it
Assuming you have waited a couple hours and the water is still not getting hot there are too many different reasons that the tank might not be heating. Is it Gas or Electric? Is the burner on? Is the thermostat set to turn on, or set to a higher temperature? if you open the water valve at the bottom of the tank, check to see if the water is warm, cold, or hot. (POSSIBLE BURN HAZZARD BE CAREFUL so dont put your hand under the valve and open it, have it pour into a container, and then touch the water with a stick, and then touch it to your hand or some other safe way like that)
Check the simple things 1st, like if its Gas, that the gas valve was turned on, or if its electric, then then electric was turned back on etc.
More info would be needed to help you further.
