Cold Weather = Less Hot Water
I seem to recall someone talking about problems with their water heater and a response said something about the water heaters don't perform as well when the weather is this cold.
I'm in AL where the temperatures are getting into the 20s an night and my water heater is in an unheated basement (temperature is about mid 60s). But is seems lately that this 40 gallon water heater puts out what feels like 5 gallons before the water starts turning cold. I've even bumped the temp up just a little, but in trying to give the kids baths at the same time, we ran out of hot water during the baths (we're talking with hot on only I was getting 90 water).
Any input on exactly what is going on and what I might can do to get some of my hot water back?
