Importance of Water Heater Maintenance

With everything you need to maintain and service in your home, it is often easy to forget about your trusty hot water heater. Although it is an important tool in your home, it is easily neglected until that one day when you get into what you expect to be a hot, steamy shower only to jump into a frigid wake up call.

When you keep up with your routine water heater maintenance, you’ll reap the benefits in the long run. It’s a solid investment you can make for your home and here’s why:

Increase Efficiency: Ever go a year or two without getting an oil change for your car? Of course not! Even after just a few months over the due date, you start to feel the difference in the way your vehicle drives. It’s the same with your water heater maintenance. Your water heater needs to be serviced twice a year: in the fall, then in the spring. If you don’t maintain your hot water heater, you will eventually begin to see a decrease in its efficiency. It takes longer to heat up, you waste more water, you see it on your bill, etc…

Decrease Costly Breakdowns: Has your system stopped producing hot water? It could be the result of a leak in your system that is costing you a significant amount of money on your water bill. You know what could’ve prevented that expense hike you can’t afford? Maintenance. A maintenance service would have caught the issue before it started costing you a lot of money, energy, and time.

No Surprises: Remember that shocking cold shower we mentioned earlier? If you have ever felt that then you know no surprise cold shower is the number one benefit of water heater maintenance. You never know just how much you appreciate the heat until it’s gone.
