low hot water pressure


The hot water pressure in my house (every faucet/shower) is low compared to the cold water pressure.This has been true since I bought the house about 1 year ago. I am not sure if this means all the hot water plumbing is clogged versus an issue with the hot water system?
If anyone has ideas please let me know.

What type plumbing?
There should have been a 3/4" from the main to the heater.
3/4" ran as a main run, then 1/2 to the shut off for the fixtures.
1/2" has 1/2 the flow of a 3/4" pipe.
