What Does Water Heater Maintenance Consist of?

At UGI Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, it’s important that our maintenance technicians are capable of providing maintenance for both tank and tankless water heaters. Regardless of which type you prefer, maintenance should improve every aspect of your water heater’s performance. Maintenance often consists of:

Inspections: Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your water heater to identify any issues or potential problems. Key elements of an inspection can be checking the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Minor problems are sometimes fixable during steps like recalibrating the thermostat, which is often needed if the water’s temperature doesn’t seem right..

Cleaning and Draining/Flushing: A common reason for a loss in efficiency is the buildup of minerals and sediment inside your water heater. Fully emptying the water heater helps eliminate any sediment buildup while also letting us clean the burner assembly and other components.

Quick/Minor Repairs: If a problem is discovered during our inspection, it’s the perfect opportunity to go ahead and complete the needed repairs. Needless to say, completing water heater repair now is usually more affordable compared to a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: When a faulty part needs to be replaced, we have access to superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater continues to function properly. For example, your water heater’s anode rod should be replaced every few years because it’s designed to collect minerals including magnesium, iron, limestone and more.

Insufficient hot water
