Professional Water Heater Maintenance

Your water heater is a vital appliance and utility for a comfortable, convenient home. When working properly, it provides you with hot water for all sorts of tasks. But like any mechanical system, it won’t always run at peak efficiency. You can help keep your water heater in the best possible condition by investing in routine preventive maintenance. Canyon State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing can perform comprehensive water heater maintenance in Phoenix to maximize the time your water heater is in the best shape possible.

Routine maintenance consists of regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning and tune-ups to maintain energy efficiency and consistent performance. Additionally, such comprehensive services are available for both tank and tankless water heaters, although the specific tasks performed may vary.

What Does Professional Water Heater Maintenance Involve?

At Canyon State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing, we offer comprehensive water heater maintenance services for both tank and tankless water heaters. These services are designed to improve every aspect of your water heater’s performance. Our maintenance checklist can include:

Inspections: We review all components of your water heater in case a problem is lurking beneath the surface. Some of the most important parts of an inspection are checking the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Some simpler problems are fixed with basic maintenance tasks like recalibrating the thermostat, which may be necessary if the water isn’t being heated properly.

Cleaning and Draining/Flushing: A common reason for a loss in efficiency is the buildup of minerals and sediment inside your water heater. Fully emptying the water heater helps eliminate any sediment buildup while also letting us clean the burner assembly and other components.

Quick/Minor Repairs: When damage or other issues are found in the course of our inspection, we can go ahead and make necessary repairs before it gets worse or affects other parts of your water heater. As you can imagine, completing water heater repair now usually costs less than a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: If any components in your water heater need replacing, we only work with superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater continues to function properly. For instance, we recommend replacing the anode rod every few years since it is designed to collect minerals including magnesium, iron, limestone and more.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Maintenance

Homeowners sometimes think they won’t have to worry about preventive maintenance until there’s a problem severe enough to require repair. To reduce the risk of surprise problems, it’s worth learning the signs that your water heater needs maintenance. Some key things to look for include:


Insufficient hot water

If you’re not getting enough hot water or the water isn’t as hot as it used to be, it’s a sign that your water heater needs maintenance.


Strange Noises

Unusual noises like popping or rumbling sounds from your water heater could indicate that sediment has built up in the tank and needs to be cleaned.


Leaking Water

Noticed damp spots near your water heater? A leak may have formed somewhere nearby, including from the water heater itself.


Bad Smells

Foul smells coming from your hot water heater often start with microorganisms like mold or mildew.
