At Complete Mechanical, Inc. we all know the importance of water heater service in Mukilteo. Whether you are washing dishes, doing laundry, enjoying a fast shower or a long soak, a hot water heater makes maintaining your household less work and increases your personal pleasure. However, water heaters can be expensive to run – especially older ones that have not received any attention for a while.
Water heater service includes things like checking the thermostat to make sure it is functioning properly, looking at the heating system – whether it is gas or electric – and cleaning it out inside. It also includes checking the anode rod. Our service person can also check to see if more insulation would help maintain the temperature of your water, and prevent your water heater from heating up your interior space during warm weather, and from losing heat in the cold of winter. Adding insulation and setting the thermostat at an energy saving level are things that you only need to do once. Getting the tank flushed and the anode rod checked are maintenance items that should occur yearly. Flushing accumulated sludge out of the tank makes more space inside the tank for water and helps maintain a clean supply. The anode rod attracts chemical elements that can cause the inside of your tank to rust out. It is much cheaper to replace a rod than your whole tank.
Autumn is a good time for all sorts of maintenance; but Complete Mechanical, Inc., can help you out with your water heater service in Mukilteo any time of the year. If it has been a while since your last service visit, you might want to give us a call at (206)337-2360 to set up an appointment. We think you will be glad that you did.
