Have you ever woken up to your early alarm clock, stumbled into the bathroom, turned on the shower, and stepped in just to be smacked in the face with cold water? Trust us…we’ve all been there15737789114_824a1d9ffc_z before and it isn’t pleasant!

Your water heater is considered a luxury, and when it stops working that’s when you give us a call to install or repair your water heater. The average life of a water heater can be anywhere from eight to 12 years, but what if we told you that you could prolong the life of your system by doing routine maintenance?

There are three MAJOR benefits to getting annual water heater maintenance. We broke it down simply for you:

  1. Increase Efficiency & Saves You Money

Sediment buildup is very common in water heaters, and can be a major contributor to making your system less efficient. If you’ve ever heard banging or knocking noises coming from your water heater, this is likely a sign that you need to have your water heater flushed. The sediment is caused from loose minerals in the water, which then settles on the bottom making it more difficult to produce hot water. We suggest that you flush your water heater at least once a year or every 6 months. Once you’ve done this, you will likely save money on your next utility bill and get hot water quicker!

  1. Decrease The Likelihood Of Costly Breakdowns

Studies show that homeowners have a plumber in their home once every three years. If you have yearly water heater maintenance, our technician will catch water heater leaks, corrosion, or anything that is prohibiting your system to work at 100%. As an added value, when you hire us you’re also entitled to a FREE whole-house plumbing inspection.

  1. No Surprises

Nobody enjoys a cold shower or coming home to a flood in their basement from their broken water heater. Having regular water heater maintenance will help you avoid those awful surprises.
