Have you ever stepped into the shower and been shocked with a blast of cold water when you expected it to be hot? You are not alone. Water heater problems are not only inconvenient, but they can also cause health issues. Dishes, in particular, must be cleaned at a certain temperature for sanitation reasons.
Most water heaters can last from 8-12 years, depending on the model, but with routine water heater service in Arlington, you can likely extend the life of your heater for several years beyond that!
There are three main benefits of annual water heater maintenance:
- You have the ability to save money while increasing efficiency. Sediment accumulation at the bottom of your tank is fairly common and is caused by minerals that are loose in the water. Flushing the tank about every six months to a year will eliminate this problem and allow your heater to operate better and save you money each month on your power bill. One sign that you should get your tank flushed is loud noises coming from it.
- Regular maintenance decreases the chance that the heater will malfunction. Annual inspection by a professional can catch rust or corrosion, leaks or other problems that keep your tank from operating as it should.
- Cold water surprises or unexpected leaks are less likely with periodic maintenance service.
