Monroe Water Heaters
The forgotten heart of your house, like your air conditioner, is the water heater. When everything functions properly, you never have to think about it. Yet, once the water is cold on a busy Monday morning, you suddenly recall that long-forgotten appliance, which you had neglected for years due to the philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” This way of thinking is acceptable, however by maintaining your appliance over its lifetime, you can increase its lifespan from 15 to even 20 years. Like your automobile, water heaters require maintenance. The water heater needs to be flushed while the car needs to have its oil changed. Just emptying your Monroe water heaters once a year can significantly extend their useful lives. Sediment will start to accumulate in the unit after several years of water flow. Years of usage have resulted in sediment/debris from water settling on the bottom of the heater, which makes it harder for the heater to heat the water, using more energy with less benefit. It would take considerably longer and use more energy to start boiling water if there was a plate between the pot and the burner. Most of the units we remove from Monroe are covered with this sediment, particularly in Monroe, North Carolina, where hard water is a major problem. Even if servicing it is time-consuming and labor-intensive, you will undoubtedly end up saving money and extending the lifespan of your water heater.
We often advise repairing a water heater that is between 8 and 10 years old. While growing older may potentially mean wasting money. Many problems might arise from a neglected water heater, making repair expenses unnecessary. Repairs are advised for the majority of common problems, albeit, if routinely cleaned. Your water heater will last longer and operate more efficiently after being flushed. Overall, it will have less problems and won’t have to work as hard to get hot water. Lack of routine maintenance is usually the cause of common water heater problems. After two years, cleaning of the burner assembly is required. Every year, the heater should be flushed. These minor adjustments make maintenance simple and inexpensive while also helping to avert larger problems in the future. Homeowners on average can easily flush their own furnace. A normal unit has a 10- to 15-year lifespan on average. In contrast, a tankless unit can last up to twenty years. Even though the installation is more challenging, it solves numerous problems that water heaters now have. Because tankless water heaters last longer, consume less energy, are WIFI compatible for your techies, and provide an endless supply of hot water, we always advise replacing conventional tank water heaters with these. Thus, whether you’re single or have 20 kids, you’ll never have to worry about the tank running out again. You never need to wait for hot water again since the heater heats water as it flows through it. Learn more about Tankless Water Heaters.
Maintenance for a longer lifespan
Many actions can be taken to extend the lifespan of a typical water heater to at least 15 to 20 years. These actions include:
Flushing your Monroe water heaters helps to minimize the accumulation of silt and improves fuel efficiency. Also, 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. Little 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.
Each system should have an expansion tank, which is a fantastic feature. All new tank heaters must have this installed, according to the N.C. Plumbing Code. Thermal expansion and water hammer are lessened by this tiny pressurized tank. As water is heated, the molecules of the water separate from one another, expanding the water. This is known as thermal expansion. The expansion tank absorbs the added strain on the system, decreasing pressure throughout the entire system. The tank will push the water back into the system once the rate of thermal expansion has slowed.
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? Well, these are typical indications of “hard water.” 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. Mostly 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.
