Water heaters only have a top and bottom thermostats which seldom go bad. Heating elements wear out most often. If you are running out of hot water too quickly kill the power drain the tank and remove bottom heating element using a special large socket. Visual inspection should tell you if it is melted. If it is ok check the top heating element. If the heater was on and the tank not full the top element will go first. Elements never operate at the same time

When your boiler breaks down, it can be difficult to make a decision on the best course of action to take. The best thing to do is call a professional, as trying to fix a boiler yourself can be complicated and sometimes dangerous. Some professionals you might want to contact include:

  • The boiler manufacturer
In some cases, the manufacturer of the boiler, or the company you bought it from will be able to offer assistance when your boiler breaks down. They may arrange for an in house specialist to visit your home, or if you don't have this sort of cover they may be able to point you in the direction of someone who can help

  • A local heating and plumbing specialist

That depends on the local building code. Hot water may not be a requirement for a habitable dwelling. For instance, heat is required but airconditioning is not. Check with the local AHJ (Aria having jurisdiction). Building Inspector and permits or community development
