Water Heater Maintenance in the Greater Philadelphia Area

Contrary to popular belief, water heaters require annual maintenance to extend their longevity and keep them working in top condition.

Annual Maintenance for Traditional Water Heaters

For electric or gas water heater maintenance and repairs, it is good practice to flush sediment buildup from the tank annually. Sediment in your tank can negatively affect hot water quality and reduce efficiency. The residue interferes with the heater’s ability to heat the water, thus requiring more fuel to reach the same heat increase.

Annual Maintenance for Tankless Water Heaters

By definition, tankless water heaters do not have tanks, so there’s no chance for sediment to build up. However, because tankless water heaters operate through a series of pipes in the unit, limescale can accumulate on the pipes and heating element, reducing the heater’s efficiency and driving up running costs. Economy Drain Cleaning & Plumbing can help with your tankless water heater installation and maintenance.

Hot Water Heater Replacement

Depending on your water heater’s design, location, maintenance, and installation quality, the life expectancy of the typical water heater is roughly 8-12 years.

Signs that you might need a replacement hot water heater system include:

  • An old unit — If you don’t know the age of your unit, you can find out by searching for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the top. Usually, the first two numbers represent the year, but these stickers often vary. Check the manufacturer’s website for more information and get a gas water heater replacement if it’s more than ten years old.
  • Rusty water — If your hot water looks or tastes rusty, the inside of your water heater might be rusting. To find out if your hot water has rust, fill three or four 5-gallon containers. If rust is coming from the hot water only, you probably need a new unit.
  • Not enough hot water — The most common sign that your water heater will soon fail is a chronic lack of hot water. Sediment accumulates over time in water heaters, separating water from the heat source. If your water keeps going cold quickly, you may want to invest in a new water heater if adjustments and repairs are ineffective.
