Water Heater Maintenance and Service
One simple step you can take to ensure that your water heater isn’t working overtime in order to heat up the water for your home is to insulate your water heater as it will save on your energy costs and increase the lifespan of your system.
If you feel like your water heater might be set too high, it’s not a bad idea to lower the temperature. Setting the temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit won’t be too much of a change and will reduce the stress that is placed on your water heater as it works to heat up your water, which uses less energy and extends the overall life of the water heater.
Taking ten minutes out of your day every six to twelve months to inspect your water heater can extend the lifespan of your system. What sorts of things should you take stock of when you look at your water heater? The first thing you’ll want to do is find the expiration date that should be on the tank of the water heater. This will give you a good idea of how long it will be before you’ll need to replace your hot water heater. If you’d prefer to leave this to the pros, hiring a dedicated water heater company for routine maintenance and inspection is a good call.
Over time sediment can build up in your water heater. Therefore, it is a good idea to have it flushed every two years or so to reduce the buildup on your system. The professionals at Fast Freddys can help service your water heater regularly to ensure it is taken care of at the right time
