Because sediment leads to less efficient heating and a shorter life span for the water heater, we suggest having your system cleaned. Our technicians can clean out the sediment at a fraction of the cost of replacing an aged water heater. You will most likely hear some funny noises coming from your water heater when there is sediment built up inside of the tank, a sure sign you may need some maintenance.
Water leaks can be a nuisance to homeowners. Without warning, they can flood your basement, flood the floor around your water heater, or cause significant damage to your home in other ways. There's a lot of work that goes into keeping your water heater running in good condition. While it's great to know there are potential warning signs and issues that could result in a more efficient model, one thing you can do to be proactive about a potential leak is giving Denver Water Heaters a call for a free consultation today.
Even the highest quality water heaters need a little TLC every once in a while. And the best way to do that is to stay on top of routine maintenance and tune-ups. During a tune-up, an experienced technician will inspect and adjust your system so it can run as well as possible. Unfortunately, many homeowners put this off for years, potentially hurting their system in the long run.
Boosts Energy Efficiency
Anytime your water heater turns on, it uses energy. If you have an electric water heater, it’ll draw from your home’s electric supply. If you have a gas water heater, it’ll use the gas to heat the water.
When your water heater is in good condition, it runs as efficiently as it can, using the smallest amount of energy necessary to create the hot water you need. But routine use can cause your water heater to become less efficient.
Scheduling an annual tune-up will help you keep your system running efficiently each year. Your technician will be able to address any problems that are leading to more energy consumption so you can keep your bills as low as possible.
Prevent Common Problems
Routine tune-ups don’t just keep your system running efficiently. They also keep the components in better condition for longer. When your technician inspects your system, they’ll be able to make minor adjustments as needed to make sure everything runs properly and, if they identify any damage, they’ll be able to make the necessary repairs before that damage causes your water heater to break down.
The more you can prevent common water heater problems, the better off your home will be.
Extend Your Water Heater’s Lifespan
Even minor wear and tear, when left unaddressed, can cause the rest of the components inside your water heater to degrade faster. When this happens, your water heater’s lifespan will be shorter. This means you’ll end up having to replace it with a new system sooner than you should.
Routine tune-ups help you keep your water heater running properly for as long as possible. And the longer you can keep your water heater running, the less you’ll have to spend over time.
Preserve the Manufacturer’s Warranty
All quality water heaters come with a manufacturer’s warranty that lasts for a set number of years. This warranty protects you from having to pay for repairs or replacements due to manufacturer defects. However, what many homeowners don’t know is that the warranty can be voided by ignoring routine maintenance.
By scheduling annual tune-ups, you’ll preserve your water heater’s warranty.
