Your hot water heater may be on the other side of the house. The water has to travel to get to the shower and the water that is already in the pipe is cold.

You can get a recirculation kit for your water tank , It circulates the water through the lines and you don't have to wait for the hot water again The moment you turn on the faucet , You have hot water , The recirculation kit also saves water , No more wasted water waiting for hot water to get there , The recirculation kit is available at Lowes or Home Depot
