Spring is the perfect time to dust off your tools and tackle all of the jobs you noticed while you were holed up all winter. While it’s easy to remember to check the gutters and dust every shelf, it’s important to include house maintenance such as water heater service.
Don’t let a tough winter do long-term damage on your home. Turn to Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida for all your water heater service. Make it a great 2015 with warmth all year long by adding water heater maintenance to your spring cleaning list.
Why Is Spring Water Heater Maintenance Important?
Spring is a great time to get your water heater checked out because we tend to put more pressure on it during the winter months, especially in Oneida. Why does winter do so much damage? There are a lot of things to contend with, including:
- Big family gatherings — Did you have a big crowd at your house for the holidays? There were probably more people taking showers, you were cranking up the heater a bit more often, and you were running the dishwasher more frequently. And every big meal adds a multitude of dishwasher loads as you prep and cook all of your food, and then clean up.
- Harder work — When it’s cold outside, your water heater has more heat-loss to deal with. That means it works harder to meet your home’s heat settings. If your water heater seemed especially sluggish this winter, it’s the perfect time to check and see if your pipes’ insulation should be replaced.
- Freezing and breaking — You may not have experienced a full pipe burst that flooded your basement, but a later winter freeze might have left you with cracks or leaks in your system. These occur at the weakest link, and it’s not always visible. Once spring hits, our Oneida water heater maintenance team can check your entire system for damage.
All of this increased usage and stress puts your water heater at a bigger risk of breaking down as the weather warms and pipes expand. Preventative maintenance and spring checkups mean you don’t have to experience the pain or inconvenience of living without hot water.
