    Professional Water Heater Tune-Up in Hoopeston

    Whether you own a tankless water heater or the traditional type, know that it can develop problems over time like any piece of equipment. Tanks will develop fractures due to the constant expansion and contracting that takes place in the presence of hot or cold water. The pipes and other components can also build up mineral sediment, making the system less efficient. Rusting and corrosion are also natural in both kinds of water heaters.

    If you notice any of the following, then you know that it’s time for water heater maintenance:
    • Reduced hot water pressure
    • Lukewarm water
    • Water that’s rusty or cloudy-looking
    • Popping or hissing noises from the water heater
    • A leaking water heater

    A tune-up will cover all the major components. The plumber will check for leaks and if any, their origin. The plumber will also inspect for dirt buildup in the burner assembly, rusting in the anode rod, and leaks in the temperature-pressure relief valve. A gas valve test and venting inspection are usually included, too. A tune-up may involve draining the tank to remove any sediment buildup.
