Is Professional Maintenance Really Necessary for My Water Heater?

Nobody wants to deal with an unexpected water heater repair, and regular professional maintenance can help to keep this from happening. While your unit may still operate without a maintenance visit, there could be a looming repair issue that you are unaware of. A unit that does not receive the proper maintenance may encounter trouble when you need it the most, and you may find yourself without hot water right in the middle of a warm shower. Professionals know the proper steps to take to protect your unit from such major issues.

The Steps of Water Heater Maintenance

Your technician will check on your entire system, inspecting the unit for any signs of repair issues that need immediate attention. In some cases, you may need a replacement part or a lengthy repair, but it might just be that you are in need of a thorough water heater cleaning or a few adjustments that can be performed during a maintenance visit.

Sometimes, a water heater flush can help to prevent issues with the pressure in the tank, as well as to prevent any potential clogs from forming in the hot water lines. We do not recommend that you flush a water heater on your own, as professionals know the safest methods. Water heater draining can rid your tank of any sediment that may cause heating problems in the tank later on.

The technician will also look for any signs that the tank is corroding or otherwise failing. Sometimes, the only way to rectify the issue is to replace the unit entirely. But knowing this information early on can save you a lot of stress in the coming months, and you’ll have time to plan and select the ideal replacement system.
