Tips for water heater maintenance and installation

1. Schedule professional water heater maintenance

Water heater breakdowns are often the result of skipping regular maintenance.
That’s why investing in maintenance can go a long way when it comes to preventing water heater issues and making sure it keeps operating smoothly. With proper maintenance, the likelihood of needing costly repair and replacement services is lowered. You’ll also save on energy costs.


Following a maintenance schedule means your water heater is drained and flushed at least once a year, which is crucial to keep it running efficiently. This removes any buildup or sediment, so your water heater delivers a clean, steady supply of hot water to your home.

2. Leaving town? Set the thermostat to ‘vacation’ mode

This is a setting on your water heater which allows you to run the boiler at lower temperatures than normal. This doesn’t just save energy, but it also gives your water heater a break.


Setting the thermostat to ‘vacation’ mode will set the temperature below the warmth needed to heat your home, but will keep the water from freezing while you’re away.

3. Don’t install a water heater by yourself

Many homeowners are tempted to install their water heater without seeking professional help, in an attempt to save money. But if you don’t know what you’re doing, so many things can go wrong during a water heater installation, which may result in more expensive repairs.


Choosing the right water heater is also important. A water heater that doesn’t have the capacity to handle the needs of your household is a waste of money. You also have to figure out how to store the water heater safely and properly.


Many other technical issues arise when you install a water heater, including the installation of shut off valves, pipes and fittings, and more. If the job isn’t done correctly, you’ll have to deal with more serious problems.


Don’t hesitate to reach out to our experienced, knowledgeable plumbers if you need help installing your water heater safely.
