Protect Your Investment With Regular Water Heater Maintenance

When properly maintained a water heater can easily give you a decade or more of reliable and energy efficient service. Minimize your need for water heater repairs and prevent serious leaks by servicing your water heater annually.

Get The Most Life Out Of Your Water Heater

Water heaters are remarkable in their simplicity and have very few moving parts to wear out or break. However, like all of our home’s major appliances, they benefit from regular care.

Our professional plumbers can help extend the life of your water heater by flushing the sediment from the bottom of the tank, ensuring your anode rod is still protecting your water heater tank from corrosion, and inspecting for any signs of impending problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you guarantee your work?

Yes, we stand by our workmanship. We offer a 1-year labor warranty on all of our services, ensuring you can be confident in the quality of our installations.

How often should I have my water heater serviced?

Annual inspections and servicing is recommended in order to get the most life out of your water heater. Your heater’s water tank should be flushed and cleaned annually to prevent sediment buildup, and your anode rod should be inspected every couple of years and replaced if necessary.
During these inspections your plumber will look for signs of corrosion and check to make sure that the pressure relief valve is working correctly.

How long do hot water heaters typically last?

Hot water heaters generally have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. Following proper water heater maintenance procedures can vastly increase your water heater’s lifespan. Replacing the anodic protection rod every 3 to 5 years is one of the most important steps that homeowners can take to increase their water heater’s lifespan and protect against water heater leaks.
