Why Is Annual Maintenance on Your Water Heater Important?
Homeowners often take their water heaters for granted and assume the devices will work efficiently without annual maintenance. If you feel this way, you may step into the shower one day to find that only cold water is available to you.
In addition, instead of just a simple repair to solve this issue, you might require a new water heater. We list a few reasons it is important to perform annual maintenance on this unit here for your convenience.
It Maintains the Efficiency of the Unit
Annual inspections of your water heater by our plumbing professionals will catch rust, leaks, accumulation of sediment or other issues that interfere with the efficiency of your unit. Our plumber will replace parts such as the thermostats, heating coils or burners, drain pans, pre-pressurized expansion tanks and more.
Repairs such as these also will cost less than a replacement unit will cost you. In the event too much is wrong with the unit, though, our plumber will suggest a full replacement of the unit. Catch whatever issues you can early enough to maintain your unit’s efficiency before you have a total breakdown of your unit.
Annual Maintenance Extends the Life of Your Unit
On average, tank water heaters last up to 12 years, depending on the model that is in your house. You can extend the lifespan of your unit through a yearly inspection by our plumber. By adding a few years of usefulness to your present water heater, you will receive a higher return on your investment.
You may not think it will be much of a savings, but if you consider how often a water heater needs replacing over the entire life of your house, you will soon realize how true this fact is for you.
A Yearly Inspection Avoids a Complete Outage of Hot Water
A yearly inspection helps you avoid completes outages of hot water with sudden breakdowns. Nothing is as aggravating as the need for hot water for bathing, showering or even washing dishes only to discover that the water heater is malfunctioning.
