Water heaters often don’t get much attention – that is until they stop working and then they become one of the most important appliances in the home.
Water heaters are constantly in use even when we’re not thinking about them. Unlike air conditioners and heating systems, water heaters are used year-round to take showers, wash dishes and clean laundry.
And your Brooklyn plumbing experts at Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning know how important it is that your water heater remains functioning and efficient, especially as winter approaches.
One of the best ways to tell if your water heater may be experiencing some issues is to simply take some time to head to your basement or utility closet and inspect it.
If you hear loud rattling noises, see any leaks surrounding the tank or notice obvious corrosion, it may be time to call on an expert to take a look. Other obvious signs that your water heater may need attention are rusty water from the taps, water that is warm but not hot or water that isn’t hot at all.
As with your heating and cooling systems, your water heater is another appliance that should be serviced at least once a year to keep it running at its most efficient.
Regular maintenance helps you save money, find issues before they become major problems and extends the life of your water heater.
