If you’re like most other homeowners, you don’t think too much about your water heater unless something is wrong. However, did you know that most repairs and system breakdowns are almost entirely preventable? Continue reading to discover how you can benefit from routine water heater maintenance.

How Often Should I Schedule Water Heater Maintenance?

Water heater maintenance is one of the most overlooked tasks, but that doesn’t make it any less important. Plumbing professionals recommend scheduling a tune-up approximately every six months. Routine maintenance allows your plumber to flush all built-up debris from your system before it causes a problem in your home. Homes with extremely hard water find that maintenance should be scheduled every few months. To determine how frequently you should schedule maintenance, bring in a qualified plumber to conduct an inspection.

Advantages of Routine Maintenance

Not only is water heater maintenance a relatively quick and easy task but it also has many benefits.

Some of the key advantages of water heater maintenance include:

  • Prevents repairs: During maintenance, your plumber is able to detect leaks, corrosion, or anything else that might put a strain on your water heater before it leads to a system breakdown and costly repairs.
  • Increases energy efficiency: Conventional tank water heaters often experience significant mineral buildup within the tank. This can slow the system down and force it to work twice as hard to heat your water, consuming tons of energy along the way. A system tune-up and tank flush eliminates this issue and enables your system to function efficiently.
  • Extends system lifespan: Unmaintained water heaters tend to have to work twice as hard as properly maintained systems. This often results in serious wear and tear, frequent breakdowns, a significant reduction in system efficiency, and premature system failure. Routine maintenance eliminates these problems and keeps your system performing better for longer.
  • Saves you money: By maintaining energy efficiency and preventing system breakdowns, you can save tons of money on your monthly utility bills and by not paying for costly repairs.

All too often, plumbers get calls about water heaters that failed far sooner than they should have. Skipping out on routine maintenance can cost you a lot of time, money, and stress. Ensure your home is comfortable and your family always has access to hot water by taking care of your water heater and scheduling regular tune-ups.
