How Yearly Maintenance Can Prolong Your Water Heater

Your water heater often sits out of the way and goes unnoticed until there is a problem such as having your shower time shorten because the hot water runs out – and no one likes being surprised with a burst of cold water in the shower! In some cases, the water heater will simply be at the end of its lifespan while other will require a repair.

Luckily, with yearly maintenance, you can prolong the life of your water heater and prevent premature repairs and replacements. Before a cold shower happens to you, here are a few reasons to get the pros involved for yearly water heater maintenance.

Early detection of larger issues prevents premature replacement

When you have the experts providing yearly service calls for your water heater, they will be able to detect any issues that could present a larger problem in the future. Technicians will also have the trained eye and in-depth knowledge to take the age of the water heater into account so that they can detect issues that are common as this piece of equipment get older.

Changing anode rods and replacing electric heating elements will be done safely and promptly so that your water heater runs seamlessly and with longevity. A professional knows the warning signs of water heater repair, and will use advanced equipment and techniques to diagnose trouble spots and resolve the issue.

Draining the water heater will prevent mineral build up

Mineral build up can be a big problem for water heaters, and part of the maintenance will include draining the water to prevent this from happening. Keeping away corrosion and minerals, such as calcium, by draining the tank and cleaning is a primary reason to get yearly maintenance on your water heater.

Expand the lifespan of your water heater

The lifespan of a water heater varies based on the manufacturer and how much you invest on maintenance. Many water heaters last between 8 and 12 years, but some are known to continue working in good condition well beyond that.

If you want to expand the lifespan of your water heater, pay attention to ensure that it is working as it should, and when you notice the first signs of trouble, call a technician in to diagnose the problem. Also, take advantage of those affordable yearly maintenance calls because these will save you time, money, and some major headaches down the road.
