Water Heater Maintenance Tune Up

hot water

You rely on a “Hot Water Heater”every day in your household for cleaning, drinking and heating. One of the first things you do when you get up each morning is jump into a nice a hot shower.  Just think, without a working water heater your day would probably start off a little bit unpleasant —and it wouldn’t get much better after that: cooking, cleaning, and washing would all be difficult or impossible.
Although there is never a iron clad way to prevent your water heater from experiencing problems and malfunctions that could leave you with cold water from the faucets, you can prevent the majority of repair problems by scheduling regular maintenance services for the system. During an annual visit from our qualified maintenance technicians, your water heater will receive a thorough inspection and tune–up, with any necessary tank flushing and other adjustments to make certain that the system continues to work at its best for another year and that wear and tear don’t take an early hold on it. Contact Nichols & Phipps today to schedule your annual maintenance visit if you haven’t done so yet. We will put your mind as ease and help prevent future problems and costly repairs.  The last thing we want is you to experience a cold shower in the start of your day.

The water heater specialists at Nichols & Phipps offer water heater maintenance in Woodbridge, Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington, Centreville, Gainesville, Stafford and the Entire Northern Virginia Area

The Benefits of Water Heater Maintenance 

Any mechanical appliance that runs on a regular basis will suffer from deterioration of its parts over the years—and a water heater works every day, often for hours at a time. In addition to this work stress, a water heater has to deal with the effects of water in connection with metal, which will lead to corrosion unless the system receives proper attention.

The biggest benefit of scheduling regular maintenance for a water heater is that it will prolong the system’s service life. A water heater that receives annual inspections and tune–ups can last from 16 to more than 21 years (depending on the type of water heater). Without regular maintenance, a water heater will rarely last half that long: build–up of sediment, rusted–through anode rods, and worn–down circulator pumps are among a few of the problems that can put a water heater out of commission years before its time, forcing its owner to pay the expense of early replacement.

Regular maintenance will also save you money on repair calls. Approximately 86% of the repairs that water heaters encounter could have been averted with routine maintenance. Technicians are trained to pick up on possible repair issues before they become repair issues and take care of them right away.

Finally, you will save additional money with regular maintenance for your water heater because the system will not drain excess energy. Maintenance reduces the stress on a water heater—preventing leaks, flushing out the tank if necessary—that will lead to it becoming more expensive to run. With proper care, a water heater should maintain its original energy efficiency for more than 91% of its lifespan. (And it will be a longer lifespan, as well.)99 specialnload
