Spring Plumbing Maintenance Tips - Water Heater

Finish off your spring plumbing maintenance by checking your water heater. Make sure it is set no higher than 120 F. This will prevent scalding and reduce energy consumption. Also, if it is set too low, mold and harmful bacteria could grow. If you have any questions on the settings, call us.

Next, drain a few gallons of water from the water heater to flush out any sediment that could settle in the tank, reducing the efficiency and lifespan of your water heater.

Finally, consider replacing your water heater if it is more than 12 years old. Water heater technology has been advancing rapidly over the past decade and newer models are much more energy efficient than older ones and will save you money in the long run. Also if it is located in the attic, you have the possible threat of it leaking through your ceiling and causing great damage to your home.

When you’re done with the water heater, check the dishwasher, washing machine and ice maker supply hoses for bulges or leaks. If you see any signs of wear on these hoses, have them replaced as soon as possible before they start to leak.

By following all of these spring plumbing tips, you’ll be able to enjoy the season without worrying about your home’s plumbing system. For more spring plumbing tips or to discuss a Preventative Maintenance checkup, please call Charleston Water Heaters.
