Don’t delay servicing your water heater for any longer! It’s getting colder, and you cannot afford to go on with an unreliable hot water heater this season. Having hot water is important throughout the year, but in the winter, a cold shower would be unbearable.
Need Repairs? Now Is the Time!
Besides, waiting too long to schedule water heater service may only make matters worse. If your water is only hot some of the time, or if temperatures just do not reach as high as you would like them to, the problem is not going to get any better on its own. It is more likely that you’ll have a complete system breakdown in the middle of a shower—just when you really need your water heater to work! Schedule repairs as soon as you notice a problem to stop them from developing into a sudden system breakdown.
Maintain Your Water Heater
Another thing you should do before it gets any colder is to schedule professional water heater maintenance. We recommend this service each year for water heaters of all sizes and ages—but especially for homes in which “hard water” has been a problem in the past.
Hard water just means that you have a lot of minerals like calcium and magnesium in the water supply—minerals that aren’t really bad for your health but that may cause a lot of trouble in your plumbing system. Mineral deposits can get inside of your plumbing system and rattle around in the tank, eventually reducing its volume and increasing pressure. One reason to schedule professional maintenance each year is to flush out your tank.
In addition, a maintenance visit includes an inspection of your entire system, possible adjustments to temperature and pressure settings, and a look at your anode rod. The anode rod protects the system from rust, but it cannot do so if it has corroded too far. A simple anode rod replacement is relatively inexpensive. For more information, call a local plumber!
