At Complete Mechanical, we understand your need for water heater service in Edmonds. There have been a number of inventions down through the ages that deal with heating water. These range from building near natural hot springs to connecting a water reservoir to a heating unit.
Your modern water heater is a pretty handy thing. It is designed to warm up water without heating up your house, and to have a supply of hot water almost anytime you need it. But there are things that can go wrong with it, so it is a good idea to schedule regular maintenance. For a water heater this usually includes check the safety pressure valves, examining the heating unit, making sure nothing is leaking – water, gas or oil, depending on the kind of heater – and flushing out the water holding tank to get rid of mineral buildup or sludge that can collect in the bottom of the tank. All of these items are important for both the safety and well-being of your family.
The pressure valve prevents excess pressure build-up inside your heater. Checking the thermal unit for wear diminishes the chance for down-time. Looking for leaks can save you money. If your water heater is a gas or oil burner, it is also important for safety reasons. The mineral or sludge build-up can take up space inside your tank, cutting down on the amount of water it can hold. Of course, there is always the possibility of the unexpected, but regular maintenance can help your hot water tank function as it is intended – to hold hot water, so that you have it when it is needed.
