If the water from your shower or faucets isn’t getting hot enough or fast enough, your water heater may need to be serviced or upgraded. Consider repairing or replacing your water heater, as both can benefit your home and save money in the long run. It is preferable to be proactive and prepared. A broken water heater is a major headache for you and your family on any given day.
How Durable Are Water Heaters?
Typically, water heaters are supposed to last ten years or so. The installation, design, water quality, and maintenance are just a few of the variables that affect a water heater’s lifespan. Performing routine maintenance can optimize the amount of time that your water heater runs efficiently.
Repairing Water Heaters
Even though everyone loves taking a hot bath at the end of a long day, many homeowners neglect to schedule the annual maintenance that is required for their water heaters in order for them to work correctly.
Maintaining your water heater will help it run as efficiently as long as possible. Water heater sediment buildup may be the cause of your water not running as smoothly as it once did. Corrosion brought on by sediment accumulation can endanger safety while reducing the water heater’s efficiency. The warranty on tankless water heaters must be flushed every year. Each year, you can have your water heater flushed by California Plumbing, which will get rid of the sediment in the tank and ensure the longevity of your unit.
Replacing A Water Heater
Some water heaters can no longer be repaired and must be replaced. A leaking water heater needs to be replaced.
Contacting a professional to perform an assessment and offer a consultation before installing a new water heater unit that can match the size of the space in your home is the safest approach to replacing your water heater.
As working with gas or electricity needs specialized knowledge and can be quite dangerous without it, we do not recommend trying to repair or replace your water heater on your own. Additionally, any repair that is performed incorrectly puts your safety and the safety of anybody else living in your home at risk. Without jeopardizing anyone’s health or safety, your home deserves proper care. Always consult a specialist prior to repairing or replacing your water heater so that you and your family can enjoy hot water again.
