To Repair, or to Replace?
Many times a water heater inspection is fairly conclusive in a short amount of time, and we can let you know the best course of action for your water heater. For example, if the bottom has begun to rust through, or if the unit is older than 8 years old, replacement is the most efficient and affordable solution. In other cases, where perhaps the settings are off, or the tank simply needs to be drained and refilled, repairs are simple and affordable. Throughout the inspection process, we keep a keen eye out for different signs of damage. When we flush the tank, we look ours for anything that doesn’t belong, including particularly large collections of sediment. Sediment buildup can cause significant damage to your water heater is it is allowed to become too severe. Additionally, we will adjust your temperature valves as needed, and alert you to any signs of wear that should be addressed.
As with any household appliance, keeping your water heater well-maintained through regular inspection is the best way to keep it in working condition for the full span of its lifespan. Though the average water heater is designed to last between 8 and 12 years, we have seen cases where water heaters last longer than that due to excellent and diligent upkeep.
