Professional Water Heater Maintenance

Your water heater is a vital appliance and utility for a comfortable, convenient home. As long as it’s in good shape, you can expect a reliable supply of hot water for all sorts of tasks. But like any mechanical system, it won’t always run at peak efficiency. You can avoid losses in efficiency by investing in routine preventive maintenance. United Plumbing Company is happy to complete exhaustive water heater maintenance in Goshen to help keep appliances including your water heater in excellent working condition.

Our team of certified maintenance technicians can provide regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning and tune-ups to preserve energy efficiency and dependable performance. Additionally, such comprehensive services are available for both tank and tankless water heaters, although there may be differences in the specific tasks necessary.

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. No matter which type you have, maintenance can improve every aspect of your water heater’s performance. Tasks may include:

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: A common reason for a loss in efficiency is the buildup of minerals and sediment inside your water heater. Draining the water heater makes it easier to remove 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, we can go ahead and make necessary repairs before it gets worse or affects other parts of your water heater. As you can imagine, completing water heater repair now usually costs less than a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: When a faulty part needs to be replaced, we will source superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater doesn’t suffer a loss in overall quality. For instance, the anode rod should be replaced every few years since it’s designed to attract mineral buildup like magnesium, iron, limestone and more.
