Homeowners often understand the importance of these services for their water heat but it is just that many ignore the value of maintenance services. Make sure that if you’re staying on top of scheduling services for your air conditioner and heater that you take the opportunity to extend this care to your water heater as well.

Common Warning Signs

If you’re experiencing any of the problems listed below, then it’s time for you to have your water heater serviced.

Low Water Pressure. If you’re having a water heater problem anything outside of “no hot water at all” you might think that you can learn to live with it. If you’re experiencing low water pressure in your home, then you should have your system serviced.

Mineral deposits greatly reduce the efficiency of your water heater’s heating elements. If the build-up gets really bad, they can even build up enough to block your pipes, which reduces the water pressure coming out of your system.

Not Enough Hot Water. If you’re experiencing this, you’re probably aware that you need your water heater serviced by a professional, but sometimes this occurrence happening on a smaller scale isn’t always a red flag to homeowners. You don’t have to muddle through low or fluctuating amounts of hot water in your home. This isn’t something you have to deal with or lower your comfort standards for. Call a professional from our team and we’ll have your system working right again in no time.

Hot Water Heater Makes Noise. A telltale sign of water heater troubles in your home is a popping, banging, or rumbling sound coming from your water heater. If you hear this sound, then you’re going to need your system flushed. The mineral build-up from hard water deeply impacts the way your water heater functions. Rumbling, banging, or popping sounds are a sign that your water heater is struggling to work the way it should. Make sure that you have your system flushed regularly so that you can avoid these issues.

Old Water Heater. The majority of water heaters can only last between eight and ten years. Is your water heater within this age range or even older? If it is, and you’re having constant problems or a routine need for repairs then you might need a new water heater. Even if your water heater isn’t showing signs of problems the age of your system means that it’s time to start thinking about buying a new one.
