Water Heater Maintenance in Barrie Region

Water heaters are standard parts of homes today. You expect that when you turn on the hot water tap on your shower that you’ll receive a steady stream of hot water coming from the shower head, and that when you wash dishes and utensils in the sink you will always have hot water available to clean them.

However, it’s important that you don’t simply expect your water heater to work as it should each time you need it, year after year. Water heaters of all kinds—tank, tankless, hybrid—suffer from wear and tear over time. This can lead to the system experiencing numerous repair issues and failing years before it should. The best way to prevent this is to call Custom Comfort ClimateCare and schedule routine water heater maintenance at least once a year. Our experienced technicians in Barrie are happy to help you see that the water heater in your home provides you many years of trouble-free service.

The Importance of Water Heater Maintenance

Although water heaters do not contain the same amount of moving mechanical parts as other systems in your home (such as the air conditioner), they are in danger of suffering from wear because of the constant contact between metal and water. This can lead to corrosion, which usually requires that the water heater be replaced. Although water heaters are built to resist corrosion, only routine maintenance will see that they can keep this problem away for as long as possible.

Another point of concern for water heaters that use any sort of storage tank is the development of sediment. An important part of maintenance is the water heater flush to clean out the buildup of sediment, plus the necessary water heater cleaning to remove other accumulations. Tank flushing isn’t necessary for every maintenance visit, but any water heater will need to have it done a few times during its service life. Otherwise, the accrual of sediment along the tank bottom will block the proper transfer of heat to the water and may reduce the available volume to the point where the tank overheats.

If your water heater operates from gas–power, maintenance will also take care to see that the gas jets and gas line are in good shape. Natural gas can pose safety hazards without inspections from professionals done on a routine basis, so make sure that your gas water heater never goes with its annual maintenance visit.
