New Year, New Water Heater

Your water heater is one of the most used appliances in your home. But how much attention do you really give it? If you’re like most homeowners, you only notice your water heater when it’s acting up. While this is common, it’s far better to give your water heater a little TLC throughout the year and what better time to commit to taking care of your water heater than the new year? Here are a few easy resolutions to make in 2024.

Schedule an Annual Tune-Up
Water heaters, like most appliances, will need regular tune-ups if you want them to work flawlessly for years to come. For most homeowners, scheduling an annual tune-up will be enough to keep their water heater working well. If you haven’t already, call your water heater repair team and schedule a tune-up now. Then, commit to scheduling a tune-up for the following year. This will help you keep your water heater running well for years to come and can even reduce the number of repairs it needs over time.

Take Care of Repairs Immediately
Speaking of repairs, it’s important that you get your water heater inspected and repaired as soon as you notice any issues, however minor they might seem. If you notice anything off or see signs of corrosion and damage on your water heater, don’t ignore it. Schedule a repair appointment with your trusted Denver water heater repair team as soon as you can. This will help you keep minor issues from turning into major problems and can help reduce the risk of needing to replace your water heater prematurely.

Inspect Your Water Heater Monthly
It’s easy to forget about your water heater, but that doesn’t mean you should. Make a resolution to inspect your water heater monthly. Run the taps and make sure the water is coming out hot just like normal. Do a visual inspection of the water heater itself and look for leaks, puddles, corrosion, and other visible damage as you go. This way, you’ll be able to call a repair technician long before your water heater starts acting up.

Install a Water Filtration System in Your Home
One of the biggest causes of water heater damage is hard water, and the greater Denver area is well-known for having a lot of mineral buildup in the water supply. All those minerals make our water taste great, but they can clog your water heater and keep it from working properly. Stay on top of this by installing a whole-house water filtration and water softening system. These systems will remove contaminants and reduce mineral buildup so your water heater can work well without issue.

Upgrade Outdated Water Heaters This Year
Water heaters won’t last forever and older units often start creating more problems than most homeowners want to deal with. If your water heater is in constant need of repairs, make a resolution to replace it this year. Consider upgrading to a tankless water heater to save on your energy and water bills for years to come.
