Imagine your home full of holiday guests with everyone snug and happy, settling in for a joyous holiday season — when your household hot water heater decided to take a powder. Not only will this make showering and bathing impossible, but you won’t be able to wash clothes or run your dishwasher. If you’re like most people, you don’t give much thought to your home’s hot water heater until it malfunctions. However, you can circumvent these issues and ensure an ample supply of hot water for you and your guests simply by taking a few water heater maintenance measures.
Schedule a Checkup
Hot water systems are the second highest energy load in the average Florida home, so they’re working hard even outside of the holiday season. Add an increased number of showers and baths due to household guests as well as more dishwasher and laundry loads, and you’re system may not be up to the challenge. Having it serviced prior to the increased activity brought on by the holiday season will minimize the chances that you’ll be inconvenienced due to a malfunction.
Our technicians can give your hot water system an entire going-over to make sure that there are no issues that might cause it to stop working when you’ve got a houseful of guests during the holiday season. We’ve got skilled professionals on board who can work on all types of systems, including solar, tankless, traditional, and hybrids.
Common Signs That Your Hot Water System Needs Maintenance
A failure to operate is the most obvious sign that it’s time to call in a professional, but other indications that your system is due for maintenance are more subtle. For instance, you might not even notice that your hot water tank has a small leak, and if it’s located in an out-of-the-way area of your home, the rumblings and other noises that point to potential mineral buildup and other problems might not be heard.
