Water Heater Cleaning and Maintenance Is Simple and Easy
Water heaters are unnoticed by most residential and business owners until they suddenly stop working!
We recommend regularly scheduled cleaning and professional maintenance for water heaters in the Renton area to:
- Ensure optimal performance
- Reduce energy usage
- Extend the life
- Minimize the need for water heater repair
While cleaning and general maintenance is simple and easy, a professional plumber may detect leaks caused by faulty water supply connections, or drips from the temperature and pressure relief valve discharge pipe indicating the potential need for a thermal expansion tank, or a valve that doesn’t operate correctly causing the tank to over-pressurize and explode.
Call us if you require water heater cleaning or repair services for your residential or commercial business in Renton, or to schedule an inspection.
Water Heaters Come In Lots of Styles and Types for Home and Office
For homes or businesses in Renton with hard water, which is tough on water heaters, we recommend a review of your warranty to make certain it is replaced before encountering problems with leaking or the need for a costly water heater repair.
If a significant amount of time has passed since you replaced your model, you will undoubtedly find more choices and energy-efficient regulations that may cost more upfront but save money over a period of time.
Call us to guide you through the types of models that are available and the selection criteria such as:
- Energy efficiency
- Proper size to provide sufficient hot water and to maximize efficiency
- Fuel type, availability and cost
- Types – conventional storage, tankless or demand-types, heat pump, or solar
The technology is changing at a rapid pace. We can assist you in finding the right balance between efficiency and performance for your home or business in the Renton area.
Whether you require water heater repair or a new installation, call us for local contractor service to simplify your project.
How Do I Know If My Water Heater Needs Repairs or Replacement?
Like most appliances in our homes or businesses in Renton, water heaters eventually breakdown and require replacement.
In fact, when you see the beginning signs of failure it may be wise to consider replacement before it completely stops working or develops large leaks that result in damage to your home or business structure in Renton.
These are indicators of a need for replacement rather than water heater repair:
- Age – if your unit is 10 years or older you may want to consider a tankless model
- Evidence of rust and corrosion indicates no means of tank repair
- Inability to drain water from tank through drain valve
- A leak originating from the tank
