How Often Should I Get My Water Heater Checked?

Your water heater is practical and convenient year-round, but it steps up to the forefront of our mind when we feel the winter cold coming. With temperatures dropping, it’s past time to make sure your water heater is working. Hopefully, you have been on-schedule with the maintenance, but how do you know when it is time to get the water heater inspected? We hope to answer many of your questions in this short article. If you need a plumber’s assistance, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County to consult with a representative. Our dedicated plumbers in Clearfield are prepared and ready to help.

Periodic Inspections

There are many factors and stressors upon your water heater. The water source, water pressure, and the external weather are just a few to list. It does not matter how meticulously you use your plumbing. We recommend that property owners have their water heater inspected once every couple of years. The sooner you catch issues, the less likely the are to snowball into big, costly problems. The plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing are trained and equipped to inspect and resolve problems correctly the first time around.

Urgent Inspections

The water heater performs a fairly basic task, but the components and processes can be dangerous. There is a very real risk of water heaters exploding. If your water heater is making loud banging noises, if the water is overheating, or if the tank is leaking, then call to have a plumber inspect the issue as soon as possible. Ignoring signs of trouble can turn into a huge headache. Why risk replacing your water heater prematurely when you can have the issue fixed for a fraction of the time, cost, and effort?

When the Checkups Get Too Much

If you find yourself regularly calling the plumber about the same water heater issue, or even differing water heater issues, then it might be time to consider replacing your water heater. These units are not built to last forever. Life expectancies differ by model and maintenance, but you can expect about ten to twelve years from a properly installed and used water heater. Eventually, components are going to break down and cause issues. It can be more cost-effective to replace the unit than to call a plumber for a repair once every month.

Call Mr. Rooter Plumbing When You Need Emergency Service

The water heater is as convenient as it can be dangerous. If you notice your water heater is making unusual and loud noise, overheating the water, or leaking from the tank, then consider calling a plumber as soon as possible.

It does not matter whether you need a plumber to quickly diagnose an issue or you need a repair. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County is ready to help. Our friendly representatives and dedicated plumbers are available past "regular" business hours so that you can rest assured knowing your plumbing is in good hands. Don’t forget to ask about ongoing promotional offers and get your free price estimate upfront.
