Do Hot Water Heaters Need To Be Serviced?
It’s a good idea to call in a plumber once per year to service your hot water heater. A yearly tuneup increases the longevity of the appliance and improves its efficiency. However, the type of service your hot water heater needs depends on the type of unit you have.
Tank-style hot water heaters should be flushed annually to prevent sediment from building up on the bottom of the tank. In most cases, this is simple enough to do on your own. You simply turn off the cold water completely, give the sediment some time to settle in the bottom of the tank, and open the drain valve at the bottom of the tank to release the water into a collection bucket. It’s important to keep the valve open until the water runs clear. If you notice an odd smell while the water is draining or it remains cloudy, you should contact a hot water heater plumber as soon as possible.
If you have a tankless hot water heater, you don’t need to worry about sediment buildup, but limescale can collect in your water pipes. Flushing the tankless hot water heater with white vinegar can loosen and dislodge calcium and limescale buildup. However, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when you do this because all tankless hot water heaters are different. If you don’t have the instructions, you should call a licensed plumber to service your hot water heater.
