Taking Care of Your Raleigh Water Heaters.
Your Raleigh water heater is easy to forget about, until it suddenly stops working. Regularly scheduled water heater maintenance use less energy and extend the life of your unit.
Periodically Drain Your Tank. Sediment builds up in water heaters over time and can begin to damage your tank. Periodically draining your tank can help deal with sediment build up. If you notice that your tank’s water has bits of rust or metal in it, call Arc Plumbing immediately for Raleigh water heater repair services. These particles indicate it’s time for anode rod replacement. Your anode rod protects the tank from corrosion by attracting the chemicals that would cause the tank liner to rust.
HOME CLINIC; Routine Checks on Hot Water Heater (from the New York Times)
..The typical hot water heater is a self-contained appliance that works automatically. Unless the unit malfunctions, most homeowners rarely give it a second thought. Most hot water heaters last about 10 years, but this life span can often be extended if the unit is properly cared for. An annual inspection followed by a little routine maintenance can often keep your hot water heater functioning properly.
