- There is no hot water at all
If you notice such signs or any other issues that cause you concern, please do not hesitate to call us. We will be happy to come out to your property as quickly as possible to determine how to fix the unit. If water heater replacement is necessary, we will advise you of your options based on your needs and budget.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I FLUSH MY WATER HEATER TANK?
Like any appliance in your home, your water heater needs regular attention in order to ensure it is operating correctly and extend its lifespan. Flushing your water heater’s tank once per year can help to remove sludge and sediment from the inside of your tank that can cause it to malfunction. Depending on the quality of the water in your area, more frequent flushes may be warranted.
OTHER WATER HEATER MAINTENANCE TASKS INCLUDE:
- Checking your unit’s anode rod for corrosion
- Verifying that the thermostat is set to the right temperature
- Visually inspecting for leaks or signs of deterioration
- Checking water pressure levels
- Checking the temperature & pressure relief valve
Shut the water off by turning the valve that’s closest to your water heater off. It’s also a good idea to soak up as much water as possible to prevent damage to your home.
Typically, maintenance involves flushing the tank at least once a year to remove excess minerals. If you have a conventional water heater, the anode rod should be checked at every few years as well.
Tankless water heater units give you hot water on demand without the need to store the water in a tank. Whether or not you’ll benefit from one depends on factors such as the size of your home and your average hot water needs.
Consider replacing the water heater you have if it’s older, in need of repairs more often, or damaged to the point where repairs are no longer cost-effective.
You’re welcome to consider a tankless unit or a traditional one for your next water heater installation. You’ll also want to make sure your new water heater is correctly sized for your home and needs to optimize efficiency. Also, newer models have more insulation, which further enhances your savings potential.
