    Water Heater Maintenance You Can Trust in Urbana

    Water heaters are just like any other piece of equipment because they need regular maintenance. Your water heater has safety devices that need to be tested annually. These devices include the temperature and pressure valves. If these devices were to fail, your water heater would build too much pressure with extremely hot water. This pressurization could lead to the outlet valve blowing or the tank cracking and flooding your home with hot water. Then, not only would you need a new water heater, but you would likely need to replace flooring and walls due to water damage. If this scenario occurs when no one is home, the destruction could be even worse.

    Over time, your water heater will also start to get calcium buildup, which is the number one cause of poor efficiency. As water mineral builds up in the bottom of your water heater, the unit will have to use more energy to maintain the heat of your water. It will also result in less available hot water and will reduce the lifespan of your heating element, ultimately resulting in the need to replace the water heater.

    Your water heater can also build up rust, causing your water to have a reddish color and an odd taste. If this issue is not addressed, it can spread to other parts of the water heater and can cause it to fail prematurely.

    When we perform water heater maintenance, we complete several tasks.
    • Flush the tank
    • Check safety devices
    • Inspect gas lines and wiring
    • Check water pipes for mineral buildup
    • Tighten any loose connections
    • Check for rust build up

    Don’t neglect your water heater. Let Dogtown Heating, Air & Plumbing maintain your unit and increase its life span, energy efficiency, and reliability.
