Water Heater Maintenance Services

water heater maintenance service imageLet’s face it; you rarely even think about your water heater, much less worry about having it maintained on a regular basis. But water heater maintenance is key if you want to avoid the huge hassles that arise when your home doesn’t have hot water. What can start as a minor inconvenience can quickly become a major quality of life issue. Just like any other type of equipment, a water heater needs to be checked periodically to make sure it is operating as it should. Without routine maintenance, your unit could develop serious problems that may not be solved through repair. Left unchecked, these issues could get so bad that you’ll need a complete replacement. Let a professional with One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating take care of your water heater so you can prolong the life of your unit.

Do-It-Yourself Water Heater Maintenance

There are some steps that you can take to make sure your water heater continues to perform reliably in between maintenance appointments.

  • Check the unit to make sure it is heating water to your desired temperature. Look at the temperature setting and then run the tap to see how long it takes for the water to get hot.
  • If it takes too long for you to get hot water, adjust the temperature.
  • Every three months or so, drain the tank to keep harmful sediments from forming. If you don’t know how, give us a call and we can tell you what to do.

Professional Water Heater Services

In order to make sure that your water heater is truly in good shape, however, you should have an expert come to check it once or twice a year. We can drain your tank for you if you like and make sure there is no excess sediment accumulating inside. We’ll also check all of the heating elements to see whether or not they need to be replaced.
