Maintaining Your Water Heater

Maintaining a water heater is important to ensure that it runs efficiently and lasts for as long as possible. Here are some tips on how to provide proper maintenance and what potential issues to look out for.

Prevent Dust

If you have a water heater made after 2003, or an electric heat pump, the big concern is dust. It’s not something we realize when thinking about regular maintenance, but dust can lead to many problems.

Flush the Tank

Over anodes, if you have hard water, you may need a flush kit added as well. Softeners can remove mineral sediment, but you’ll still want to have regular maintenance.

Check for Leaks

Check your water heater regularly for leaks. If you notice any leaks or signs of corrosion, contact one of the professionals at Lindemann to inspect and repair the issue.

Test the Pressure

Another consideration is checking the water heater’s T&P (temperature and pressure) relief valve yearly. Residential valves are prone to failure, but it’s an inexpensive part to replace regularly.

Should I Replace My Water Heater Before It Fails?

Replacing a water heater before it fails is wise as it ensures continuous hot water, reduces the risk of potential water damage, lowers energy bills with better efficiency, and allows for a smooth transition to a modern, eco-friendly unit without rush.

Signs of Disrepair

Repair Or Replace Your System

If you are having issues with your water heater today, also think about past performance and issues. Do you have a service log near your unit that shows you when the unit has been looked at? Water heaters, in general, last about 12 years. Depending on how long you’ve had your unit, the age may be a large factor in gauging increasing scheduled repairs or just replacing your current unit.

Other Signs You Should Replace It

There may be other signs your water heater needs replacing. Sometimes heaters die long before they should. For instance, an improper installation can result in a water heater only lasting for a few years.

If you notice any of the following signs, you may need a water heater replacement rather than a repair:

  • Water is rusty in color
  • Strange noises come from the heater
  • Hot water doesn’t stay warm very long
