Check your hot water heater by pass, sounds like it could be open.

Yes. It is next to the heater itself. There are 3 valves. The ones on the cold in and hot out should be open (levers parallel to water flow). The 3rd valve, located on a line between the other two, should be closed(lever perpendicular to the water flow).
