Hot Water Heater Q&A
There are multiple questions you may have when it comes to your hot water heater:
What can I do to extend the lifespan of my hot water heater?
Hot water heaters have an average lifespan of 10 years, but you can extend their life by several years with regular inspection. Our technicians offer water maintenance checks and annual maintenance where we will flush the water heater.
How are hot water heaters maintained?
We help clients maintain their hot water heaters by:
- Checking the temperature valve: The temperature and pressure relief valve keeps the tank from excessive pressure. Ensuring that this valve works properly keeps the water heater from overheating.
- Fixing leaks: We can fix water supply connections to ensure that the hot water heater is working properly.
- Flushing the tank: Hot water heaters lose efficiency when sediment builds up in the tank. When checking the pressure relief valve, we can also flush the tank to ensure the water lines are clear.
How do you know you need to replace a hot water heater?
If your hot water heater is over 10 years old, leaks frequently, and is not heating water as it used to, it may need to be replaced. We will help make sure if your hot water heater simply needs repairs before recommending replacement. We provide maintenance and replacement services to all of our clients.
