Maintaining Your Water Heater
Your water heater—whether it is gas, electric, tankless, or solar powered—works hard every day to provide you with hot water for your showers, dishwashing, laundry, and more. If you want it to last as long as possible, it’s important to keep an eye on how it’s functioning and conduct regular water heater maintenance. If your water temperature is inconsistent lately, it might just need a quick tune-up, which happens to be one of our specialties at ARS/Rescue Rooter.
Water Heater Maintenance
To keep your traditional tank hot water heater in tip-top operating condition, our home plumbing experts will:
- Check the pressure relief valve
- Drain your tank to remove any sediment (if recommended)
- Inspect the tank and connections for rust, wear, or corrosion
- Replace worn anode rods—which attract rust in order to protect the tank interior—and other old parts
Keeping your water heater in good condition is all about regular maintenance. Get the experts at ARS/Rescue Rooter to help
The Water Heater Experts
There are a number of different water heater types and sizes. Even if you strategically chose a unit based on important factors like the number of people living in your home, fuel type, availability, and cost—as well as the length of warranty and repair information—regular use means you’ll still need to perform maintenance to keep it in good condition.
With regular water heater maintenance from ARS/Rescue Rooter, you’ll increase the efficiency, lifespan, and safety of your unit. Treat your water heater to a cleaning and tune-up as part of our Home Service Plan, or opt for a maintenance call for your water heater only.
