Water heater maintenance can often fall pretty low on our to-do lists, but it affects our 2nd largest utility expense – water usage. Many homeowners wonder if water heater maintenance is necessary, if it can be done themselves, or if calling a professional is the way to go. While maintenance may be optional, it can vastly improve the longevity of your appliances and prevent expensive repairs.
In general, standard water heaters can last around 10 years and should be flushed and replaced with clean water at least once a year. When you hire Cathedral Plumbing as your Plano plumber, we can provide a thorough checklist of water heater maintenance:
- Checking all safety valves
- Testing the supply pipes
- Draining your water heater
- Ensuring shut-off valves are functional
- Checking your anode rod
- Evaluating your water heater’s thermostat
- Testing your heating element function
