Life Expectancy of Water Heaters

Water heaters, like any fine machinery, are impermanent; however, with proper care and maintenance, they can last a very long time. We have worked on boilers well over 100 years old and have replaced thermostats and igniters on water heaters 20 years old. The common thread through all of this experience is maintenance.   In order to help you ensure your boiler or water heater is operating at peak performance, here are some Tips from the Experts.  
  1. First and foremost, each and every boiler or water heater should be serviced annually. This will decrease the potential for disaster while maintaining the functionality and productivity of your appliance.
  2. Give your boiler some exercise every now and then during periods of low use in order to keep it operating smoothly when you need it to.
  3. Keep an eye on the pressure gauge and bleed if necessary. All too often, we see functionality of these appliances drop when they have been run at high pressures for too long. With just a little tweak here and there, you can enjoy consistency of performance.
  4. Be vigilant in checking your boiler or water heater regularly because recognizing a possible problem early can avert a catastrophe. Make sure that the flame is blue, not yellow or giving off smoke and, if any cracking, rattling or leaking is taking place, call us right away.

Installing Your Water Heater Through a Professional

Searching for the right water heater for you doesn’t have to be a dreary process. Understanding your family or business needs and capacity is important, however, and can involve a bit of browsing so, as with any new venture, it always helps to speak with a professional.   With shifts in climate and more attention paid to doing our part, there is always a more eco-friendly Water Heater for your home. Many households these days are going with a tankless water heater. As the name suggests, these appliances heat the water as it passes through, which saves on water, energy and environmental costs.   No matter what type of heater or boiler you have or plan to acquire, TapRoots Plumbing and Heating are the very last word in Water Heater Repairs. Our trained, licensed and experienced technicians are available 24/7 for all your needs and we 100% guarantee all of our work.
