The Importance of Your Water Heater

Cold showers surely have health benefits, but can you imagine the consequences of being forced to use cold water – forever? Hot water is essential for proper handwashing, showering, dishwashing, laundry, general cleaning, and cooking. With that in consideration, your water heater is possibly the most important appliance in your building. In this article, we will dive into the details of our point and share some tips on how to get the most out of your water heater’s service life. If you have any questions or need an experienced plumber, then feel free to call Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Blair County. We are a local source for reliable water heater installation, replacement, and repair services.

The Importance of Professional Installation

Installing a water heater is not like installing a television. It involves plumbing work and should be left to plumbers who understand the plumbing system and the ins and outs of the installation process. Installing the water heater on your own includes several risks, including:

  • Water leaks
  • Gas leaks
  • Potential tank explosions
  • Bacteria growth
  • Scalding water temperatures

An improper installation can significantly reduce the efficiency and life expectancy of your new water heater. Why lose out before you even begin using the water heater? Mr. Rooter Plumbing, for example, offers competitive pricing as well as regular discounts and coupons on water heater installations.

The Importance of Routine Maintenance

An average water heater should deliver around 10 years of service before it begins to break down. This life expectancy, however, depends on a few factors. One of the most important factors is routine maintenance. Draining the tank once or twice a year, for example, will flush out sediment buildup that can damage the water heater. Check on the anode rods and test the temperature and pressure relief valves a couple of times a year too! If you want to leave the maintenance and tune-ups to the professionals, then call Mr. Rooter Plumbing to schedule an appointment.

The Importance of Timely Repairs

Your water heater has one job, and that is to heat water. If it is failing at its one job, then you should call a plumber as soon as possible. Delaying repairs can allow small issues to spiral into big headaches. A lot of the time, the issue can be resolved by repairing or replacing a single component. Postponing the repair, however, can allow the problem to spread to other components. As you can guess, this is going to make the repair more expensive and time-consuming. Why wait when you can call Mr. Rooter Plumbing any time? Our live representatives are always ready to take your call.
