There are stickers on water heaters to remind us to have water heater maintenance done on a regular basis. But how many of us have it scheduled? Hopefully these five reasons to have water heater maintenance on your water heater will help you understand why it’s important to have it done.

Water Heater Maintenance

  1. When you have regular water heater maintenance, the water heater is just going to perform better. Regular maintenance can help to increase the useful life. Not only that, but by having it maintained on a regular basis, it can keep it running both effectively and efficiently.
  2. When a water heater is maintained on a regular basis, your plumber can help to identify problems before they happen. No one wants to wake up in the morning and be greeted with a cold shower! By having this regular maintenance, your plumber will be able to alert you after each session as to what could be needing to be fixed and or replaced soon.
  3. Some manufactures warranties require that a water heater be maintained on an annual basis to maintain the warranty. By having the maintenance, you have proof that it’s been taken care of.
  4. Water heaters tend to get sediment built up at the bottom, especially here in the Port Charlotte area with our hard water. This makes it have to work harder and less efficiently. Maintenance will clean out this dirty water making the heater work more efficiently.
  5. Having a more efficient water heater will help cut down on your energy bills. It will also help to cut down on repair costs down the line, and especially help to avoid needing to replace a water heater sooner than you should need to.
