3 Reasons Why You Need a Water Heater Tune Up

3 Reasons Why You Need a Water Heater Tune Up

 The year is halfway over now that it’s July– and that means it’s time to schedule your water heater tune up! Why this time of year? Well, the summer time is actually especially hard on our water heaters. This is because not only does it need to work harder to get your water cool, but because this equipment often sits in your garage or basement. In Tucson, that means they’re likely subjected to sitting in heat beyond one hundred degrees! 

Your water heater should get maintenance at least once a year, and we highly recommend picking the summer months to schedule yours. 




Here’s why water heater maintenance is so important:

1. Water heater maintenance helps with longevity.
Maintenance is a must to prevent rust, leaks, and sediment from harming your water heater over time. If you’d like to make yours last longer, we suggest keeping up with regular tune ups.

2. Tune ups can help you with energy savings.
During the summer months, we might suggest lowering the temperature of your water heater. This can save electricity by helping it reach the desired water temperature quicker. 

3. An unchecked water heater can become a safety hazard.
One of the most common water heater issues is leakage– and this can vary from drops of water on the floor to major water damage to your home. Yearly maintenance can help you save on costly repairs and protect your family from mold, structural damage, and more.

Overall, water heater maintenance is necessary to help keep your home safe, your energy costs lower, and your water heater running well all year long. This isn’t just important if you enjoy hot showers! For your safety and to keep your home in great shape, we highly recommend scheduling your yearly water heater tune up.
