Water Heater Maintenance

Depending on the type of water heater you’re using, regular maintenance tasks can vary. However, for all water heater types, we recommend regular maintenance to ensure efficiency and longevity. This will help you maximize the life of your heater. With both electric and gas heaters, call a professional if you aren’t comfortable with handling these sources of heat. At Best Plumbing, we can provide you with annual water heater check-ins and scheduled maintenance.

Water Heater Rebuilding

When you encounter issues with your water heater, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to completely replace it. Rebuilding the problematic parts of your water heater can save you time and money! This will also help extend the life of your water heater.

For example, in gas heaters, a control valve or thermal ignitor may give out while the rest of the heater remains undamaged. Replacing these parts can return your heater to working condition without requiring a larger replacement project. In electric heaters, the temperature or pressure release valve might need to be replaced but not the entire heater.

Replacing Your Water Heater

In some cases, you may need to replace your entire heater rather than rebuilding it. This can be a necessity with older heaters or a voluntary replacement if you want to upgrade to a different type of heater. There are also some telltale signs that your water heater might need to be replaced. Some of these signs can be solved by replacing parts rather than replacing your heater entirely, but it’s best to consult a professional.
