Professional Water Heater Maintenance

Water heaters are an essential part of any comfortable, convenient home. Assuming it’s in good condition, you can expect a reliable supply of 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. Taylor Heating Inc. can perform comprehensive water heater maintenance in Rochester to help keep appliances including your water heater in excellent working condition.

Your maintenance technician can offer regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning and tune-ups to maintain energy efficiency and optimal 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 Taylor Heating Inc., 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. Maintenance often consists of:

Inspections: Your technician should start with a thorough inspection of your water heater in case a problem is lurking beneath the surface. We will check the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Some simpler problems are fixed with basic maintenance tasks 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: When damage or other issues are found in the course of our inspection, it’s the perfect opportunity to go ahead and complete the needed repairs. Understandably, performing water heater repair now is usually more affordable compared to a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: If a part is about to break, we have access to superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater enjoys the same standards of quality. For example, your water heater’s anode rod should be replaced every few years because it’s designed to attract mineral buildup like magnesium, iron, limestone and more.
