We bought a newly built house about 2.5 years back, with a new 50-gal gas water heater. Of-late, I have noticed that the water does not get hot at all in the mornings, esp. if we have not used any hot water the previous evening/night (laundry, dishes etc). The water is cold even though I am first in the shower. But the water gets very hot about a half-hour after the first use of hot water in the morning.
I think I have not seen this problem when we have used enough hot water the previous evening/night. Not sure of the pattern of occurrence yet, still trying to monitor it.
Just wondering whats going on with my heater. Is it a thermostat problem?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
