Water Heater Repair and Maintenance
Common problems with water heaters may include sediment build-up, a faulty thermostat, a malfunctioning heating element, or leaks. It’s crucial to have your water heater periodically inspected, serviced, and repaired or replaced if a serious problem has developed.
We recommend you have us perform preventative maintenance on your water heater once a year:
- We’ll check your safety relief valve and emergency shutoff valve to make sure that your water heater is as safe as possible in case a problem does occur.
- We’ll also test the water temperature to make sure it’s at an optimal level. It should be warm enough to take a hot shower comfortably, but not so warm that it could cause any safety concerns.
- Then we’ll inspect your burner assembly and the power supply that’s heating the water.
- If it needs to be done, we’ll flush out the system to get rid of any debris that may cause a problem with the efficiency of the machine, and could lead to much larger problems in the future.
These steps all help to ensure that your water heater is working as efficiently as possible and they’ll help to increase the water heater’s lifespan. Many components on a water heater can be replaced, except for the tank. Once the tank rusts, there is no way to repair it, and replacement is the only solution.
