We’re willing to bet all the money in our pockets against all the money in your pockets that you haven’t thought about your water heater recently. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, of course. It’s not like you really need to pay close attention to your water heater at all times. Water heaters are built to last, but they will last a lot longer with proper care and maintenance. Otherwise, you won’t get the best return on investment for your system.

Catching Water Heater Problems Early

Water heaters may be more resistant to problems than HVAC systems, but they’re not totally immune. All kinds of problems can afflict water heaters, most of which do not give off obvious warning signs when they first get started. The first sign that you may notice that something is wrong with your water heater might be the system’s tank rupturing, or something equally catastrophic. That’s hardly an ideal time to be finding out that your system has a problem, which is why preventive maintenance is so important.

Preventive water heater maintenance involves close examination of your entire system, which makes it a lot easier to find and fix problems before they get out of hand. Provided you’re consistent about scheduling repairs at least once a year, you can save a substantial amount of money on repairs and increase the lifespan of your water heater at the same time.


Water heaters don’t have on and off seasons, like heaters and air conditioners do. As such, it’s not that important what time of year you schedule water heater maintenance. What’s important is that you schedule it annually, and don’t skip appointments.
