Troubleshooting Checklist for an Electric Water Heater
Electric water heating systems look the same as gas-fueled counterparts. Both have insulated storage tanks insulated with steel and insulation between the storage tanks.
The major difference between electric and gas water heating systems is their heat source. In electrical water heaters the water can heat up using electric high and lower heating elements extending into the tank.
The gas water heater is powered by the gas heater and heated by the tank. Problems with water heaters that produce little heat usually result from faulty heating units, and this inexpensive element should easily be replaced and replaced.

The water temperature is too hot
Too much cold water can cause much more problems. If you experience a similar situation, your thermostat may be too high.
Tankless or demand-type water heaters heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. This type of water heater is designed to provide an adequate supply of hot water without running out when adequately sized.
When a hot water faucet is turned on, cold water flows through a heat exchanger in the unit, and either a natural gas burner or an electric element heats the water. As a result, tankless water heaters deliver a constant supply of hot water. You don’t need to wait for a storage tank to fill up with enough hot water.
