Be Sure to Schedule Water Heater Maintenance This Year

As we move into fall, you’re probably spending a fair bit of time and effort on making sure that your home is ready for heating season. While that is important, you shouldn’t forget that there are other systems that need maintenance as well. Your water heater, for example, requires annual maintenance in order to stay in top shape. Read on to find out more about the benefits of annual water heater maintenance.


As with most appliance problems, water heater issues are both subtle and progressive. You likely won’t notice anything wrong with your water heater until whatever problem is afflicting it has already caused a lot of damage. The best way to keep your water heater in ideal condition is to schedule preventive maintenance at least once a year. This enables your water heater technician to find and fix problems before they have the chance to develop too far, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars in repair costs. Your water heater will last much longer, and be much healthier, if you are careful to schedule preventive maintenance for it every year.

When to Schedule Water Heater Maintenance

Unlike climate control systems, water heaters do not have a specific season in which they are used more often. Water heaters are placed under more or less the same level of stress all year-round, so it doesn’t matter quite so much when you schedule maintenance as long as you do it at least once a year. Scheduling it consistently is what will net you the advantages, so once you settle on a time of year be sure to stick to it.
