Santa Barbara Water Heater Maintenance & Repair Service for Homes and Businesses.
Your hot water heater is one of the most depended on appliances in your home. We use hot water every day for bathing, washing our clothes, and running our dish washers. Most people take the convenience of running hot water for granted, until the hot water is gone. Maintaining your hot water heater will promote its efficiency and longevity. You can count on Santa Barbara Plumber to keep your water heater in good running condition, and we will be there when you need us to replace your broken model with a newer one.
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
The life expectancy of conventional hot water heaters is between 8 to 12 years. If the water heater in your home is older than 10 years, then it is getting near the end of its run, and the next repair you make on it might be the last one before you need a new model. Santa Barbara Plumber offer’s our customers thorough maintenance checks and performs routine functions such as flushing the tank and replacing valves. If you are due to replace your hot water heater, we can assist you on selecting a conventional model or upgrading to a tankless model.
Signs That Your Hot Water Heater Needs Servicing
High pressure, hot temperatures and hard water take their toll on hot water appliances. There are a few things to watch and listen for to identify if your heater needs service or replacement.
- Keep an eye out for discoloration in your tap water. It may be a clue that your tank is rusting on the inside.
- If you hear your water heater making knocking sounds, your tank may need to be flushed out to remove the sediments built up inside.
- It you notice a leak from the base of your water heater, then call us immediately to examine it! A leak is a sign that your water heater needs to be replaced.
Delaying investigating this situation may result in your tank breaking and flooding your room or garage with all the many gallons of water stored up inside.
