What Does Water Heater Maintenance Consist of?

At Ken Griffin Plumbing Services, we offer comprehensive water heater maintenance services for both tank and tankless water heaters. These services are designed to improve every aspect of your water heater’s performance. Tasks may include:

Inspections: We review all components of your water heater in case a problem is lurking beneath the surface. Some of the most important parts of an inspection are checking the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Some simpler problems are fixed with basic maintenance tasks like recalibrating the thermostat, which is often needed if the water’s temperature doesn’t seem right..

Cleaning and Draining/Flushing: Over time, sediment and minerals will clog the water heater and reduce its efficiency. Flushing your water heater helps remove any sediment buildup while also letting us clean the burner assembly and other components.

Quick/Minor Repairs: If a problem is discovered during our inspection, we can minimize the risk of further trouble by making any needed repairs right then and there. Needless to say, performing water heater repair now is usually more affordable compared to a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: When a faulty part needs to be replaced, we will source superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater doesn’t suffer a loss in overall quality. As an example, your water heater’s anode rod should be replaced every few years because it’s designed to attract mineral buildup like magnesium, iron, limestone and more.
