Does My Water Heater Need Maintenance?

Like any plumbing appliance, your water heater needs to regularly maintained in order to ensure its proper operation and extend its lifespan. Generally speaking, it is recommended you have your water heater inspected and serviced by a professional every year. Our water heater technicians can inspect every aspect of your water heater and perform the necessary repairs to keep it working at its best.

Basic maintenance for your water heater should include:

  • Checking the anode rod for corrosion
  • Testing the temperature-pressure-release valve
  • Flushing the tank and washing out sediment
  • Verifying that your unit is set to the correct temperature

Troubleshooting Your Hot Water Heater

When your hot water heater goes out, there are a few preliminary steps you can take to try and fix the problem. There are two types of hot water heaters: Gas heaters and electric heaters.

For gas hot water heaters, we suggest that you:

  • Inspect the hot water gauge: Make sure that the hot water dial is set correctly. Sometimes this dial is turned to a lower temperature, causing the water to remain cold.
  • Wait 30-60 minutes and try again: If you had hot water for a significant amount of time and your shower suddenly turned cold, you may have simply used up all the hot water in your tank. You may simply need to wait until the tank recovers.
  • Check the pilot light: Every once in awhile, the pilot light may go out. Open up the small door that houses your pilot light to see if it is ignited. If not, follow the instructions on your heater (normally on the small door by the pilot light) to re-ignite the flame. If the flame won’t re-ignite, you may need a new thermocouple.

For an electric hot water heater, we recommend you:

  • Take a look at the thermostat: Sometimes the thermostat on these machines begins to act up and fails to communicate correctly with the unit to adjust the temperature of the water. This is normally an easy fix that involves replacing the thermostat with a new one.
  • Check for leaks: If a pipe in your heater is leaking, it will affect the amount of water available and its temperature. Look for moisture around the heater or condensation on the pipes.
  • Inspect your circuit breaker: Because these units run on electricity, a tripped circuit can affect their operation. Go to your circuit breaker box and make sure the switch connected to your unit is in the right position.
