My hot water runs out faster than it used to. Is something wrong with my water heater?

Water heaters are designed to hold a set number of gallons; however, they require occasional maintenance in order to reach their maximum capacity. Even if you have your water softened, minerals and sediment can build up in your tank, making it impossible for the heater to hold the gallons for which it was designed. Consider having your water heater cleaned to help improve the amount of hotwater available in your home.
