A water heater is an appliance in your home that plays a vital role in your comfort. A continuous supply of hot water is needed in order to live a normal, comfortable life. To ensure your unit is always functioning up to par with minimal need for repairs, it is best to invest in a maintenance routine.

What causes water heater problems?

A water heater that worked well when it was first purchased will have issues as it ages. The reason for this is that the age of a water heater can cause problems due to frequent use. Another problem that we have seen is due to home and business owners not having their units serviced from regularly.

Although it may seem tedious, maintenance visits are extremely beneficial to people because a visit makes sure a water heater is working correctly and that there are no hidden complications. A problem that is found will be taken care of right away instead of it worsening to the point that emergency services are required.

How long do units typically last?

The longevity of a unit depends upon a variety of factors, but a unit typically lasts between 10 to 15 years. General maintenance visits can help a water heater last for a long time. The quality of the water can be a determining factor, as well.

When should you replace your water heater?

The cost of the repair work must always be considered when looking at whether the price is worth it. There have been some cases where a customer has decided to purchase a new water heater because repairing the old one would be the same price. Besides this, consider the age of the water heater. A water heater that is a few years old will need to be flushed and have other minor repairs over time. These types of maintenance repairs are necessary for all units, and the water heater does not need to be replaced as a result of it.

How can you avoid problems in the future?

People who schedule annual maintenance visits with our technicians can greatly reduce the possibility of a problem arising in the future. We have a specific checklist that we consult each time we visit a water heater. We look for minor leaks and other little things to ensure that the unit is working properly. Any component that needs to be tuned and cleaned will be addressed accordingly.

Most of the problems we see, like a lack of hot water, can be prevented by maintenance visits. These visits can resolve small issues before becoming severe and disastrous. Lastly, maintenance can ensure your units functions as it should all year round.
