You can make your water heater last longer with maintenance. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you with that.

You were looking forward to a relaxing hot shower when you got back from your bike ride in the Green Swamp tract. The shower started out hot but didn’t last long. The water became cold pretty fast. You’re hoping you don’t have to replace your water heater. You really can’t afford it right now.

A trusted plumber, like those at Billy the Sunshine Plumber, can tell you if you need a new hot water heater or if it can be repaired. But, in the future, you can make your water heater last longer with some maintenance.

“There are several easy and inexpensive ways to increase a water heater’s operating efficiency and longevity. Some things—adding insulation and setting the temperature—have to be done only once. Others, such as flushing the tank and checking the anode rod, should be done annually,” thisoldhouse.com says. “The benefits of caring for your water heater are clear. Adding insulation reduces heat loss by up to 45 percent and can shave as much as 9 percent off water-heating costs. Flushing sediment from the tank improves efficiency and longevity. And making sure a viable anode rod hangs in the tank will help prevent its inside from rusting out. A used-up rod is far cheaper to replace than a new heater.”

Thisoldhouse.com offers these six water heater maintenance tips: Insulate the pipes, insulate the heater, drain the tank and wash out the sediment, adjust the temperature, check the tpr valve, and check the anode rod.

If you can’t do any (or all) of these jobs yourself, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
