Let's delve into why yearly maintenance is crucial, signs your water heater needs attention, maintenance frequency, and common questions about water heater care.

The Importance of Yearly Tanked Water Heater Maintenance

Regular maintenance of your tanked water heater is essential for several reasons:

  • Efficiency: Over time, sediment buildup can accumulate at the bottom of the tank, reducing the heater's efficiency and increasing energy costs. Yearly maintenance includes flushing the tank to remove sediment, ensuring optimal performance.
  • Prevention of Issues: Routine maintenance allows our technicians to inspect the water heater for signs of wear and tear, corrosion, or leaks. Addressing minor issues promptly can prevent major breakdowns and costly repairs in the future.
  • Safety: Regular maintenance helps identify and address potential safety hazards, such as gas leaks or faulty electrical components, ensuring your water heater operates safely and reliably.

Signs Your Tanked Water Heater Needs Attention

Keep an eye out for the following signs that indicate your tanked water heater may need maintenance or repairs:

  • Fluctuating Water Temperature: Inconsistent hot water supply or sudden changes in water temperature could indicate issues with the heating element, thermostat, or sediment buildup in the tank.
  • Strange Noises: Loud banging, popping, or rumbling noises coming from the water heater may signal sediment buildup or mineral deposits, reducing efficiency and potentially damaging the tank.
  • Visible Leaks: Any signs of water pooling around the base of the water heater or visible leaks from connections or valves should be addressed promptly to prevent water damage and mold growth.

Frequency of Tanked Water Heater Maintenance

We recommend scheduling tanked water heater maintenance at least once a year to ensure optimal performance and longevity. However, factors such as water quality, usage patterns, and the age of the water heater may warrant more frequent maintenance.

Common Questions About Water Heater Maintenance

Here are some common questions homeowners may have about tanked water heater maintenance:

  • Can I perform water heater maintenance myself? While some maintenance tasks, such as flushing the tank, can be DIY-friendly, it's advisable to hire a professional technician for comprehensive maintenance to ensure safety and thorough inspection.
  • How long does a tanked water heater last? With proper maintenance, tanked water heaters typically last 8-12 years. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your water heater and maximize its efficiency.
  • What should I do if my water heater is leaking? If you notice any leaks or signs of water damage, turn off the water supply to the heater and contact a professional plumber immediately for inspection and repairs.
