Do not wait for the water heater in your home or in your business to have problems before you have it inspected regularly. Even if your water heater is working fine, it should be inspected periodically in order to avoid a costly breakdown.
In addition to being costly to fix, a water heater that isn’t working properly could present safety issues. A well-functioning water heater regulates the amount of carbon monoxide that it produces. Since carbon monoxide is odorless, it presents a huge safety problem in businesses and homes as it can cause sickness or death. The carbon monoxide levels produced by your water heater should be checked to keep employees of your business and members of your home safe.
In addition to improving safety, inspecting your water could also help improve its energy efficiency. With fuel and electric costs going up, it’s important that you’re not wasting energy where you don’t need to. The person conducting an inspection of your water heater can make suggestions on what you can do to make your unit more energy efficient, helping you save money in the long run.
While having your water heater inspected you can also have it flushed out to remove sediment and mineral buildup in the water heater, preventing issues that could be caused in the future by the deposits. The inspection can also help you identify potential issues while they are still small and easy to fix.
While your water heater won’t last forever, having regular inspections can help diagnose problems early and prevent many problems that would shorten your water heater’s lifespan. If you’re concerned that your water heater may be experiencing problems, call us at 801-712-1940.
