A water heater is a household appliance that often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. Routine maintenance on your hot water heater is key to avoid bigger problems down the road.
Bryan’s Fuel offers comprehensive hot water heater maintenance services to keep your home running smoothly. From tune-ups and repairs to full replacement, we have you covered.
What’s Included In Water Heater Maintenance?
✔ Checking the Anode Rod
The anode rod is a metal rod that helps to protect the inside of your water heater from corrosion. Over time, the anode rod will corrode and, when this happens, it will need to be replaced.
✔ Inspect the Ventor Motor
If you have a gas-powered water heater, you will also need to inspect the gas burner assembly on a regular basis. The gas burner assembly consists of a series of tubes that deliver gas to the burners inside your water heater. Over time, these tubes can become clogged with dirt and debris, which can reduce the efficiency of your water heater and cause it to overheat. Cleaning the gas burner assembly requires that it be removed from your water heater and brushed or blown with compressed air to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated.
✔ Check For Leaks
Water heaters are under significant pressure, and are susceptible to leaking. With regular inspections, you can find and repair leaks before they become too severe, or cause water damage to the surrounding area.
What Happens If You Don’t Service Your Water Heater?
If not properly maintained, your tank could begin to corrode, causing leaks and creating inevitable damage to the surrounding floors, walls, and other valuables — in addition to generating higher utility costs due to inefficient heating.
By scheduling regular service for your water heater, you can avoid these costly repairs and keep your water heater running properly.
