You might be surprised to find out that the number one reason that water heaters end up replaced is due to the lack of maintenance performed on them. The more you use your water heater, the more likely you are to accrue a build-up of minerals, which can hinder the ability of your water heater to work correctly, prompting you to contact a water heater service expert.
It is possible to help combat the premature need of hot water heater replacement by making sure you call a vetted, licensed plumber to perform routine maintenance on your unit. The benefits of doing this are:
- Since mineral deposits are frequent in water heaters, having a plumber clear the unit from this build-up can help keep it working correctly for a more extended period of time.
- That doesn’t mean that regular maintenance will eliminate the need for repairs. Still, it does drop the occurrence of breakdowns significantly. If you properly maintain your unit, you may not need water heater replacement later on.
- As a water heater begins to fail (due to build-up or other preventable problems), your water’s temperature will likely fluctuate. You may encounter more cold showers than hot until it is fixed or replaced.
