Why Do I Have No Hot Water?

Living on Chicago’s Northwest Side comes with some incredible perks but it has its challenges too. And one of those is the temperature for about half of the year. It gets cold and stays that way which means taking showers and doing dishes when it’s freezing outside. That takes hot water so there’s almost nothing worse than going to turn it on and getting nothing but frigid water from the tap or shower head. So what gives? Why do you have no hot water?
