Water Heater Maintenance

Like most other appliances, your water heater could benefit from maintenance. This may include regular inspections, checking for leaks, adjusting the water temperature, as well as draining your water heater to remove sediment. Maintenance will help you keep your water heater running efficiently, which translates into savings on your energy bill! After all, your water heater is the second most energy-hungry and frequently used appliance in your home after your HVAC system.

Water Heater Installation

While ongoing maintenance and timely repairs will help you prolong the life of your water heater, eventually it will need to be replaced. Modern water heaters are designed to last between 8 and 13 years, so if you’ve purchased an older home, yours may be on its last legs.

Here are some tips to know if it’s time to replace your water heater:

  • It’s leaking and you can clearly see water under the tank
  • There is rust in your tap water
  • Popping noises inside the tank from sediment buildup

Our expert Maryland plumbers can help you diagnose these and other water heater issues, as well as let you know the best course of action. If replacement is necessary, we can help you choose the right brand and the right capacity water heater for your household needs. Thinking about converting to a tankless model? We can do that too! Regardless of which water heater you select, we will ensure compliance with building codes and will tune up your appliance for optimal efficiency.

Water Heater Repair

The most common water heater problems we help our Maryland customers with have to do with sediment buildup and incomplete fuel combustion. Both of these issues, if not addressed soon, will decrease water heater efficiency and potentially lead to failure. Don’t wait till one day you wake up to no hot water or lukewarm water. Get your water heater repaired with the first signs of trouble, whether it’s low water temperature, bad pressure, odd noises and smells or evident cracks.

But even if you did allow your water heater to expire, we are still happy to help. Our Maryland master plumbers are on call 24/7 with emergency plumbing services.
