Have you noticed your water heater is not performing as it should? Here are 5 regular maintenance tips to help you on your way.

New Or Old, Water Heaters Should Be Maintained

If you're like most people and want to avoid costly repairs or replacements, regular maintenance is key. By following these five tips, you can help keep your water heater running smoothly and avoid unexpected problems.

  1. Check the temperature: Set the temperature to 120°F to prevent scalding and save energy. Higher temperatures can also lead to faster sediment buildup.
  2. Inspect the anode rod: The anode rod helps prevent corrosion in the tank. Check it once a year and replace it if it's worn down or corroded.
  3. Check for leaks: Look for any signs of leakage, such as water pooling around the base of the tank or rust-colored water. Addressing leaks promptly can help prevent more serious problems.
  4. Insulate the tank: Wrapping insulation around the tank can help prevent heat loss, making it more energy-efficient and reducing wear and tear on the unit.
  5. Review your water heater energy consumption: While it may be tempting to stick with gas water heaters, given their lower upfront cost, the ongoing gas price spikes highlight the volatility of this energy source.

By following these tips, you can help ensure your water heater is in good condition and ready to provide hot water whenever you need it. In addition to these maintenance tips, there are a few other things you can do to extend the life of your water heater:

  • Keep the area around the water heater clear and free from clutter to improve airflow and prevent overheating.
  • Consider installing a water softener if your water is hard, as this can reduce sediment buildup and prolong the life of your water heater.
  • Have your water heater inspected by a professional once a year to catch any potential problems early and keep your system running smoothly.

By taking these steps, you can enjoy reliable hot water for years to come and avoid the hassle and expense of a water heater replacement.
