Professional Water Heater Maintenance

Water heaters are an essential part of any comfortable, convenient home. As long as it’s in good shape, you can count on it to provide hot water that you can use for all kinds of things. But like any mechanical system, it won’t always run at peak efficiency. You can help keep your water heater in the best possible condition by investing in routine preventive maintenance. United Plumbing Company is happy to complete exhaustive water heater maintenance in Goshen to maximize the time your water heater is in the best shape possible.

Our team of certified maintenance technicians can provide regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning and tune-ups to sustain energy efficiency and optimal performance. What’s more, our maintenance services are available for both tank and tankless water heaters, although the specific tasks performed may vary.

Want to know for sure if you’re getting the most from your water heater? Get in touch with our maintenance staff by calling 502-228-1996 to schedule an appointment.

What Does Professional Water Heater Maintenance Involve?

At United Plumbing Company, we make sure our technicians are trained on both tank and tankless water heaters. These services are designed to improve every aspect of your water heater’s performance. Maintenance often consists of:

Inspections: Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your water heater to look for signs of trouble. We will check the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Minor problems are sometimes fixable during steps like recalibrating the thermostat, which may be necessary if the water isn’t being heated properly.

Cleaning and Draining/Flushing: Over time, sediment and minerals will clog the water heater and reduce its efficiency. Fully emptying the water heater helps eliminate any sediment buildup while also letting us clean the burner assembly and other components.

Quick/Minor Repairs: If we identify any issues during the inspection, it’s the perfect opportunity to go ahead and complete the needed repairs. Needless to say, taking care of water heater repair now is often less expensive than a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: If a part is about to break, we will source superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater enjoys the same standards of quality. For instance, your water heater’s anode rod should be replaced every few years because it’s designed to collect minerals including magnesium, iron, limestone and more.
