Why Water Heater Maintenance Is Important!

Have you ever woken up in the morning, stumbled into the bathroom, turned on the shower and been hit with cold water?  If you’ve been there before you know it’s not pleasant! Water heater maintenance plays an important role in our daily lives because we depend on our water heater for our day-to-day routines.  The average life of a water Water heater Maintenance | cold shower | water heater tune-up heater can be anywhere from eight to 12 years, but with regular routine maintenance you could prolong the life of the heater and reap the benefits in the long run.  It’s a solid investment you can make for your home and here are a few major benefits from getting annual maintenance:

Increase Efficiency

Your water heater needs to be serviced at least once a year, twice a year if you live in a hard water area.  If you don’t maintain your heater, you will eventually begin to see a decrease in its efficiency.  It will take longer to heat up, you will waste more water, your bill will increase, etc.  Sediment build up is very common and can be a major contributor to making your system less efficient and shortening its lifespan.  If you’ve ever heard noises coming from your water heater, this is likely a sign that you need to have it flushed!
