When it comes time to install a new water heater, careful consideration must be given to the type of water heater that is installed. The water heater that most people are familiar with is the traditional or tank system. This type of water heater continually works to heat a large supply of hot water that’s stored in a tank. When a faucet is on, the hot water exits the unit and travels to the fixture, leaving the tank with less water than before. Cold water is introduced into the water heater and heated along with the remaining water. Although these systems provide a powerful way to supply water to multiple fixtures at a time, using too much hot water at one time can result in cold water.
Tankless water heaters are an answer to this problem. Because tankless units heat water on demand, they never run out of hot water. Since they don’t have a tank, they can use energy more efficiently, resulting in lower heating bills. The disadvantage of tankless water heaters is they are limited in the amount of water they can supply at one time. For this reason, sometimes two or more units are needed for larger households.
One plumbing appliance that rarely, if ever, gets a day off is a water heater. Although maintaining a water heater isn’t difficult, it’s crucial to prevent breakdowns, maximize efficiency, and increase longevity. One of the most important aspects of water heater maintenance is flushing the system every six months. Flushing a water heater involves draining the tank completely and allowing fresh water to flow into the unit to wash away the sediment accumulation on the bottom of the tank. Sediment buildup can damage a water heater’s heating elements, reduce efficiency, or clog the water lines.
Additional ways to keep a water heater in top condition include:
- Test the pressure release valve once a year
- Use softeners for hard water to reduce sediment buildup
- Insulate the tank and pipes of an older water heater
- Check for aged gaskets, loose hardware, and signs of corrosion once a year
- Check the anode rod regularly and replace it at least every 3 to 5 years
Scheduling a service appointment with Sealy Plumbing will ensure water heater maintenance is carried out with excellence. We’ll also look for any minor issues that should be repaired before they worsen and cause significant damage to the system.
