Nothing is worse than being ambushed with cold water from your shower early in the morning, right? It is times like this when we realize how much of a blessing our water heater is. They deserve to be treated well. And by that, we mean it requires regular maintenance. Here are all the reasons you need to get serious about taking care of your water heater:

Works efficiently which saves you money

Sediment buildup is a common occurrence in water heaters. It’s one of the main reasons your water heater works inefficiently. Any knocking sounds coming from a water heater can indicate your water heater needs to be flushed. The loose minerals in the water make up the sediment at the bottom of the water heater. This prevents efficient heating. Water heaters should be flushed every six months to work smoothly. A sediment-free water heater works the best. It uses less power hence saving you some money on your next utility bill. You will notice that the water heats up quicker too.

Reduces the probability of costly breakdowns

If you’ve had a water heater for a while now, you could face the cost of repairs or replacement. Having yearly water heater maintenance will remove the possibility of such breakdowns. Our technicians are qualified to catch any water leaks, corrosion and obstructions before they become a full-blown problem. A reliable service will do the job effectively, and a yearly maintenance won’t cost you as much as a water heater repair or replacement.

No untimely surprises

No one enjoys a cold shower or walking into a flooded room after a hard day at work. Your regular maintenance appointments will prevent any such surprises from occurring. You can be confident that your water heater will work seamlessly.

Safety measure

Water heaters can be powered by electricity or natural gas. Either way, it’s a large tank filled with water of up to 140 degrees. Any kind of malfunction can put your family and home at risk. A gas leak or problem with wiring can be hazardous, especially with children around. Some water heater problems may go unnoticed. Backdrafting is a major issue related to water heater ventilation systems. The exhaust of the water heater finds its way back into the house instead of being directed outside. Your family could be exposed to carbon monoxide, a byproduct of inefficient combustion of your water heater. Carbon monoxide can cause serious illnesses, symptoms of which are nausea and dizziness. If not controlled, this toxic gas can be fatal. A yearly maintenance appointment will inspect your water heater for all such problems and rectify them immediately, keeping your family safe.
