Cherryville Water Heaters
Cherryville, NC is a small city in Gaston County. It was first settled in the late 1700s and was originally known as White Pines. Cherryville was on a major road connecting the main trading routes in the 1700s for the colonies. As of the 2010 census, Cherryville had a population of 5,760 residents.
Water heaters are the forgotten heart to your home much like your ac unit. When everything works you don’t have to ever think about it. However once the water is cold on a busy Monday morning you suddenly remember that long-forgotten appliance, neglected by years of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” mentality. While this thought process is normal, servicing your unit throughout its life can extend it from 15 years to upwards of 20 years. Water heaters need to be taken care of just like your car. The car needs an oil change while the water heater needs a flush. Something as simple as draining your Cherryville water heater once a year can greatly amplify the heater’s potential for life. After years of water flowing through the unit, it will begin to build up sediment. Sediment/debris from water settles on the bottom of the heater from years of use, thus making it more difficult for your heater to heat your water, consuming more energy for less return. Imagine if you were trying to boil water with a plate between the pot and the burner, it would take much longer and require a higher amount of energy to begin boiling. Especially in Cherryville, NC where hard water is a huge issue, most of the units we remove from Cherryville are caked in this sediment. Servicing it is huge and maybe a hassle but will certainly end up saving you more money and add years to the life of your water heater.
We usually recommend fixing a water heater that is between 5-8 years old. While being older could potentially be throwing away your money. A neglected water heater can give lots of issues and make it not worth the cost of repair. Although, if regularly flushed repairs are recommended on most common issues. Flushing your water heater not only increases its lifespan but also makes it a more efficient unit. It won’t work as hard to get hot water and will have fewer issues overall. Common water heater issues typically come from the unit not having regular maintenance. The burner assembly will need to be cleaned after 2 years. The heater itself should be flushed every year. Small things like these help prevent bigger issues down the road and are easy cheap maintenance options as well. The average homeowner can flush their own heater with ease. The average lifespan of a standard unit is between 10 and 15 years. A tankless unit, on the other hand, will last 20 years or even longer. While a more difficult install, it gives peace of mind on many issues water heaters currently have. We always recommend changing conventional tank water heaters for a tankless unit simply because it lasts longer, more energy-efficient, WIFI compatible for your techies and a constant hot water supply that NEVER ENDS! This means whether you’re single or have 20 kids you’ll never have to worry about the tank being empty again. Water passes through the heater and is instantly heated so you never have to wait for hot water again. Learn more about Tankless Water Heaters.
Maintenance for a longer lifespan
There are a few things you can do to allow for the standard water heater to reach upwards of 15 – 20 years, these methods include:
Flushing your Cherryville water heater regularly will help it run more efficiently by preventing the buildup of sediment. Additionally, it will aid in averting future tank leaks. On the bottom of the unit, sediment typically accumulates. It can eat away at the interior of your tank over time, leaving tiny holes that allow water to escape into your house. In the most extreme circumstances, homes can flood because water heater bottoms have totally eaten through them. The expense of repairing a water heater leak that threatens the structural integrity of your house can be very high.
To reduce the water pressure to a maximum of 80 PSI, add a PRV, or pressure-reducing valve. Every fixture in the house experiences less pressure as a result. Small drops might be seen in your faucets and showers when fixtures are holding water that is pressurized above 80 PSI. As a result of not always being forced to hold back high water pressure, doing this extends the life of these fittings. One of the major factors contributing to leaks in most homes is water pressure.
Any system should have an expansion tank, which is both a fantastic bonus and need. The N.C. Plumbing Code mandates that this be installed on all brand-new tank heaters. This little pressurized tank lessens water hammer and thermal expansion. When water is heated, the water molecules split from one another and expand due to thermal expansion. The expansion tank absorbs the added strain on the system, lowering system pressure throughout. The tank will force the water back into the system once thermal expansion has subsided.
If you think your water is safe to drink, but you’ve seen white spots on your dishes, it could be time to install a water filtering system. Possibly even the black lining around your toilet? These “hard water” indicators are very typical. By removing this “hard water,” you may decrease the amount of sediment buildup in your tank and increase the lifespan of all of your fixtures. Similar to how silt does, hard water can also have an impact on the heater’s tank. eating away the tank’s interior and generating leaks, resulting in an emergency and the necessity for a plumber.Learn more about Filters.
The most economical choice for maintenance is to perform it yourself. Although the procedure is straightforward, it effectively keeps your heater running. Your heater must be totally drained down for maintenance. As a result, the heater’s bottom is cleared of silt. Usually used with gas water heaters, the second stage. The bottom cover plate must be removed in order to clean the burner assembly, which also includes the surrounding area. You could enroll in one of our plans as well. We have a Superior Service Agreement. In addition to evaluating every other fixture in your home, this will require us to come out twice a year to maintain your unit.Learn more about our Service Agreements.
