Bvplumbing
Plumber installed a new boiler furnace in my
home. The hot water no longer comes to any of the hot water fixtures in the house. For some reason cold water is coming through the hot water faucets. What happened? I do not want these plumbers inside my home again. What shall we do now? The water heater is less than 2 years old and is working properly. Everything was fine until the other plumbers put in the furnace. **Thanks everyone for your help, I allowed the plumbers to return and they told me that the pipes must be clogged and I should get new plumbing. As well as the new furnace may be using too much water pressure, therefore the hot water is no longer able to circulate throughout the clogged pipes. Strange happenings for 1 days work don't you think?

Have you checked the simple stuff first?
If the water heater is electric, make sure the circuit breaker is on. If the water heater is gas, make sure the pilot light is on. If there's a shutoff valve at the water heater, make sure it's "open". Chances are it's something basic.

Sounds like he crossed the hot and cold connections at the tank "The hot water tank", not Boiler furnace
Have another contractor come in and change it back. Not that big-a-deal.

As the two others said, it is probably something simple: most likely that the circuit breakers were not flipped back on after they completed the work. Although you said you do not want them back, they are the ones obligated to restore your system, and they are the ones who can cut to the chase to realize what they overlooked doing the quickest.
