Tips on how you can keep your water heater working properly for many years
Maintaining a water heater does not always have to be expensive. There are simple, inexpensive tactics you can employ to increase the operating efficiency of your water heater as well as increase its lifespan. Activities such as setting the heater’s temperature or insulating it are one-time events. Others like checking its anode rod and tank flushing should be done once every year.
Regular maintenance activities might seem like a bother yet they are the surest way of ensuring your hot water heater serves for the longest possible time. These maintenance tasks have clear benefits. Adding insulation, for instance, will reduce the amount of heat lost by your water heaters by up to 45%. This usually amounts to a reduction in the water heating bills by almost 10%.
Flushing, on the other hand, improves longevity as well as efficiency. Make sure you have a working anode rod hanging in the tank. By doing so, you will be preventing the inside parts of the water heater from corrosion. The rod will get used up and as a result spare the water heater. Replacing the rod is far easier and cheaper than buying a new hot water heater.
By following these simple tips, your heater tank will remain in perfect condition and serve you for many years. You will also pay less in hot water bills in addition to avoiding the house damage that leaking water could mete out in your house.
Have clear access to your water heater
It is important that you know where in your house your water heater is located and ensure you can easily get to it. When your heater is tucked away some hidden place in your basement, replacements and repairs may become a nightmare.
Know the type of water heater you have installed in your house
Hot water heaters are of various types including electric, natural gas, propane, storage tank and tankless. There are some significant differences in the way you would do maintenance activities for these different types. When you find out the type of heater you have, note its model and serial numbers. This information is helpful in finding out the gallon capacity as well as the age of your water heater.
During repairs or replacements, our plumbing experts will ask for this information as part of ensuring you get a solution that best fits your individual water heater challenges. The information is also required during warranty inquiries.
Give your water heater some space
Your water heater should be in a clear location where air circulation is adequate, especially for gas-fired heaters. Inadequate oxygen supply could cause carbon monoxide production in addition to damaging parts of the water heater. Clearing the space around the heater also allows you to easily notice leaks as soon as they begin. Keep in mind also that storing things too close to the heater is a fire hazard.
