What’s the big deal about maintaining your hot water heater? Like any other appliance or tool, your hot water heater encounters all kinds of wear and tear due to constant use. Maintenance services counteract general complications, helping to:

  • Reduce costly repairs. The formation of sediment and other obstructive particles is one of the leading causes of breakdowns that result in a need for costly repair.
  • Minimize energy consumption. A clean and clear tank interacts with the heating element contained in the tank far more effectively, heating water easier and using less energy to do it.
  • Extend the life span of your water heater. When properly cared for a hot water heater can last years, even decades. But without routine service, an untimely failure becomes far more likely!

Frequently Asked Questions About Water Heater Maintenance in Akron

Arming yourself with some basic knowledge of your water heater and its systems is an important part of keeping it protected and operating effectively. Here you’ll find answers to some of our most commonly asked questions about water heater care!

How Do I Know If I Need to Schedule Water Heater Maintenance?

For the best results water heater fill and maintenance services should be scheduled once a year at a minimum. If your water heater is older or seems to frequently need repairs, more frequent service visits can further extend the life of your water heater. Outside of regularly scheduled visits, you may consider scheduling additional services if you notice odd behavior from the system, such as loud popping noises from the tank or random leaks.

Why Is Brown Water Coming Out of the Hot Side of My Faucet?

Reddish, brown, or rusty-looking water is a clear indicator that an excessive amount of sediment has built up in your tank. You should schedule a flush & fill service as soon as you can, because discolored water is often followed by more complex issues, expensive water heater repairs, and potentially even a replacement. If discolored water is coming from both sides of your tap, the issue likely lies with your water supply—usually the municipal supply or the well you use.

Do Tankless Water Heaters Need Maintenance?

Absolutely. Although tankless, or “on demand,” water heaters don’t have a storage tank that requires flushing or refilling, these water heaters still have many vulnerable components. The heating element, associated piping systems, and connections should be inspected yearly.

How Much Does a Water Heater Flush Cost?

The cost of flush & fill services varies depending on the labor involved. A simple maintenance service for a well-cared-for system is negligible in price, while a more complex maintenance visit that involves rigorous cleaning or water heater tune-ups may go up in price. Either way, even the most involved maintenance visit costs substantially less than water heater repair!
