Water Heater Maintenance
Over time, your water heater may start to become less efficient with the buildup of sediment on the bottom. In places with hard water, it is especially important to schedule yearly maintenance to avoid too much sediment buildup in the tank. The thicker the layer of sediment, the less efficient the unit will be at heating water and the more at risk it will be of damage or failure.
During a tune-up, the technician will drain the tank, clean the heating elements, and inspect the internal parts. They may also check for signs of wear and tear such as rust or gaps in the tank.
With regular water heater maintenance, you can make sure your unit runs as efficiently as possible for as long as possible. Even if nothing appears to be wrong with your water heater, yearly maintenance is still recommended for water heaters. If you notice a problem or leak with your water heater, then your unit may require repair or replacement. Our technicians can inspect the problem and offer solutions to meet your needs and budget.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair
Sometimes your water heater will give you subtle signs that it needs repair, such as an abnormally high bill. Other times, the repair is quite obvious, like when the water heater leaks all over your floor. No matter what water heater issue you are facing, our trained technicians can help your home return to normal functioning once again.
You may need water heater repair if you notice any of the following signs:
- No hot water at all
- Hot water runs out quickly when in use
- Discolored or smelly water from pipes
- Clanking, knocking, or banging noises from the unit
- Signs of rust on the tank
- Water is leaking from the tank
The faster these repairs are taken care of, the more likely it is that you will be able to keep your water heater rather than have to replace it. If repair becomes cost-prohibitive, then a replacement may be necessary. Our technicians will present you with options to best fit your unique needs and budget.
Avoid the hassle of repair and emergency replacement by scheduling a water heater tune-up today. Not only will your water heater run more efficiently, but you will also have peace of mind knowing it is at far less risk for a breakdown any time soon.
When a Replacement is Necessary
No matter how well a water heater is taken care of, eventually, it will need to be replaced. Water heaters have a typical lifespan of 10-15 years with yearly maintenance. If yours is nearing the end of its life, you may want to think about replacing the unit before a sudden breakdown or messy leak occurs.
If repairs on your water heater are becoming more frequent, it is decreasing in its efficiency, is leaking, or has formed rust on the outside of the unit, then you will need to replace your unit sooner rather than later.
