Signs Your Water Heater Needs Maintenance
The water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home that the entire household relies on for warm and hot water. Most water heaters will usually last between 10-20 years if they are well-maintained. From time to time, expect to have to call a plumber for an unexpected problem that may occur.
Leaking Tank: If you walk down into your basement and see that your tank is leaking water everywhere or even dripping, you definitely will know that the tank needs to be serviced. If you run into this problem, it will need to be turned off and the water drained out before it can even be repaired. Once it is completely dried out, you will want to call a licensed professional for the heater repair services.
Rusty Water : If you have rusty water coming out of your faucet the bottom of your tank needs to be cleaned out. You do not want to clean the tank out yourself because the sediment is built up at the bottom of the unit, this could cause anyone a health hazard if they don't know what they are doing.
No Hot Water : If your hot water tank is not producing any hot water, there is minor or major problem. This means that either the top or the bottom of the unit needs to be replaced. If it can not be fixed, then you will need to purchase a new unit.
The quicker you notice the problem the better and fixing the problem will help to save you money on your utility bills each month. By giving your unit the proper maintenance that it needs will let it run more efficiently. If you do not do yearly checkups it may be more costly for you in the future.
