Tips for Maintaining Your Water Heater
A water heater provides an essential service, heating your water and home, yet like any mechanical machine, it requires maintenance too. So if you can’t remember the last time you’ve even looked at your water heater (that big water tank sitting in your garage), call us for a quick maintenance call. Here are a few simple tips you can do to improve the longevity of your water heater:
- Drain the tank once a year. When water sits for too long, sediment begins to form and settle on the bottom of your water heater. Over time, the sediment hardens and creates a layer of crust which makes it more difficult for the heat source to warm the water. With frequent heating and cooling cycles, the sediment causes your water heater to create loud rumbling noises. To prevent sediment build-up, completely drain your water tank annually. Ensure you follow all safety precautions first.
- Check the metal anode rod. Every water heater contains a metal anode rod which is used to indicate the level of rust (if any) within your water tank. Most anode rods are made of magnesium or aluminum. Check the anode rod inside your tank at least once a year for signs of rust. If your anode rod is completely corroded, it’s a sign your tank needs replacement.
We are a Bradford White Contractor
If you are thinking of replacing your old water heater with a new one, a good manufacturer to know is Bradford White. Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning is a licensed contractor of Bradford White heaters which means that you can’t get this type of heater at any big-box store.
These American-made water heaters have a glass-lined tank for better insulation and a self-cleaning feature which improves longevity and reduces sediment build-up. Since most water heaters are located in the garage, it has vapor-lock design which essentially keeps the good stuff in and the harmful stuff (such as flammable vapors) out of your water.
