Slow Hot Water
Posted by Tammie on February 08, 19100 at 11:18:56:
We just finished building our new home. It's a two-story, 3,500 sq ft, 2 full baths & 1-half bath. We have two hot water heaters, 1-gas 50 gallon-upstairs, 1-electric 40 gallon-downstairs. The gas water heater is supposed to be the main one, it is supposedly set up so that hot water will "feed" from the electric hot water heater until the hot water from the gas hwh "catches up". But, downstairs in the master bath (of which the gas hwh is directly above this bathroom on the second floor), we have to let the water run for several minutes before we get the hot water. Can you offer any advice?
