It’s safe to say the following: water heaters don’t last forever. Unfortunately, that includes yours.
On average, a gas or electric water heater has a 10 – 15-year lifespan. And yet without proper care and maintenance, it could be quite a bit less. And then there’s the safety aspect of your home water heater…something you shouldn’t take for granted.
That’s why Swan’s Complete Plumbing urges you to have your water heater inspected by one of our experienced technicians once a year.
Here’s what you stand to gain:
- Fewer repairs. All water contains certain amounts of minerals such calcium and magnesium. The greater the concentration, the more likely your water heater storage tank is to incur internal rust and corrosion. That’s something we’ll check on during our inspection and, as necessary, drain and refill your tank. Depending on how severe the problem is, if any, we might even recommend a home water softener.
- Longer system lifespan. Any time you spend good money to improve your home or family’s personal comfort, you expect it to last as long as possible. An annual inspection is the best way to help you achieve that goal.
- Lower utility bills. After your heating and cooling system, nothing home uses more energy than your water heater. Through annual preventative maintenance, we can maintain the highest possible levels of operating efficiency which, in turn, translates into lower utility costs.
- Greater hot water capacity. As water heaters age, their ability to produce the amount of hot water your family needs gradually diminishes. With the help of annual maintenance, however, you can count on the supply you need to meet your daily hot water needs.
At Swan’s Complete Plumbing, we service and repair all makes and models of gas, electric, and continuous flow water heaters. So, to help keep yours in top working condition, contact us today for more information or to request service.
