Here are some of the benefits to regular maintenance.

  • Reduced repair costs

Phoenix Water Heater Maintenance

Many of our customers are curious about what actually happens during a regularly schedule water heater maintenance visit. The professional Phoenix plumbers at The Sunny Plumber Phoenix have years of experience working with all different types and brands of hot water heaters. We know how each one of them works and where we need to focus our attention during our maintenance visits. Here are some of the tasks that our plumbers will perform while they’re at your home.

Clean the burner
If you have a gas–fired water heater, the burner can start to get dirty over time. Our plumber will make sure that your water heater’s burner is nice and clean so that it can burn efficiently.
Check thermostats
The thermostats are often a source of problems for water heaters. Our technician will check each of them to make sure that they’re operating properly.
Check anode rod
The anode rod, also referred to as the sacrificial rod, is a metal wire whose sole purpose is to attract small electrical currents in the water that cause rust. This metal wire sacrifices itself for the rest of water tank. That way, the wire rusts but the rest of your water tank doesn’t. If the anode rod is wearing out, it’s a good idea to change it. If the anode rod is completely consumed then the inside of your water heater tank can start to rust which almost always means that you’ll have to replace it.
This is a safety valve that releases when there is too much pressure in your tank. Our plumber will test it to make sure that it is working.
Wash out sediment
Over time, sediment and minerals can start to build up in your water tank. Our plumber will drain your tank and clear out those contaminants.
Insulate pipes
This is a good way to potentially keep more of the heat in your water instead of letting it escape to the air around the pipes.
Insulate heater
Again, insulation is a great way to increase the efficiency of your water heater.
