We’re going to take a wild guess and say that winter is a bit of a stressful time for most people, especially during the holiday season. It’s important not to forget that winter is also a pretty stressful time for home systems. Your water heater is one of the hardest working systems in your home, and it tends to have more strain put on it during the winter. If you want to keep your water heater in good shape, you should make sure that it receives maintenance this winter.
Preventive maintenance is so important because of the way that water heaters develop problems. Most water heater issues are extremely subtle; you’re not likely to notice a problem with your system when it first appears. Instead, homeowners only typically notice issues with their water heaters when they’ve reached catastrophic levels. For example, you probably won’t notice when a small leak develops in your water heater tank, but you will definitely notice when the entire tank ruptures after the leak widens. The best way to mitigate damage to your water heater system is to catch problems as early as you possibly can, and the best way to do that is with preventive maintenance.
Annual preventive maintenance allows your technician to find and fix issues with your water heater long before they have the chance to cause real damage. This can save you thousands of dollars in repair costs over the life of the system. In order to reap the benefits these appointments, though, you need to make sure that you schedule water heater maintenance at least once a year.
