: I have a 40 gallon gas hot water heater. It is about a year old. I am the only one in the house. Sometimes when I get up in the morning the water isn't very warm. I let it run for 30 seconds to a minute just in the sink and go eat breakfest. I come back 15 minutes later and it's plenty hot. What is causing the temp to drop so low? Is something wrong with it? Any help would be great. Thanks.
What Temperature setting is it at?.How far from the tank is the HW faucet.? Are the HW lines wrapped (insulated)? Post back with info and we will advise further. Hube
