Do you happen to know what the hardest working appliance in your home is? If you're like most homes, it's your water heater. The average tank water heater is operating constantly, from the time it is installed onward, in order to maintain a standing supply of hot water at all times. That translates to an incredible amount of wear and tear on the system. If you want to make your water heater last as long as possible, and thus get the best return on your investment, you should read on.
Quick reaction is of paramount importance when it comes to mitigating problems with your water heater. The longer problems are allowed to develop in the water heater, the more damage they will do to the system. Most water heater problems don't give off any external symptoms until they're pretty far developed, so if you want to catch them early enough to prevent most of the damage you should schedule preventive maintenance. You can save thousands of dollars over the life of your water heater by scheduling annual maintenance.
As mentioned above, time is of the essence when it comes to responding to water heater problems. Even with preventive maintenance, there will be times when a problem crops up with the water heater. When that happens, you're going to want to make sure that you call for repairs as soon as you possibly7 can. The faster we can repair your system, the more damage we can prevent and the better off your system will be. With both preventive maintenance and prompt repairs, your water heater can serve you well for many years.
