What are the Benefits of Regular Water Heater Maintenance?

Routine water heater maintenance comes with several benefits. One of the first benefits you will notice is a lower energy bill. An inefficient water heater will need to work harder to provide your usual amount of hot water, which can be a drain on your energy bill. A well-maintained water heater proves more efficient without increasing your energy costs.

Another benefit of regular water heater maintenance is extended service life. We are able to spot minor problems during routine maintenance and have them repaired without hassle. This prevents them from developing into a larger issue and keeps repair costs low for you.

What Do We Look at During a Water Heater Inspection?

One of the first things our plumbers check during maintenance is the heating element. This is what makes your water hot, and a worn element can affect the water temperature.

We will also check for mineral buildup in the tank. Excessive buildup lowers your water quality while leading to tank corrosion and further problems, such as leaking and unexpected burst tanks. We recommend annual tank flushing to prevent corrosion and to keep your water heater running reliably.

Pipes around the water heater will also be checked during routine maintenance. The pipes can become clogged with mineral buildup as well, which can result in leaks or broken pipes.

What are Common Water Heater Problems?

Lack of hot water is a common problem. This is often caused by a faulty heating element. You may need to replace this component if it has worn down over time. Contact our water heater specialists for an inspection and we will determine if a malfunctioning heating element needs to be replaced.

Another common problem is a leaking tank, caused by loose valves or corrosion from mineral buildup. A leaking water heater tank is difficult to repair and the most cost-effective solution is to replace your entire water heater unit. This will prove more efficient in the long run—you won’t have to worry about the damaged tank leaking again.

Excessive mineral buildup in the tank can also lead to unusual sounds coming from the water heater. Avoid further problems with immediate maintenance service that includes a tank flush.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
