Did your spouse just call you at work to inform you that you have a hot water heater leaking all over the basement floor? This is not good news. Thankfully, you can call Roto-Rooter and a trained technician will jump in his or her van and come to the rescue immediately. You won’t have to miss that important meeting with your client, because our technicians have the skills necessary to handle anything that is wrong with your water heater.
Loose fittings on the water heater will usually result in a small leak. A tank that has become corroded, if not caught early, will spill its entire contents onto your floor leaving you with a big mess to clean up. If you need to replace your heater, it may be worth it to you to spend the extra money for a tankless variety. These work on an on-demand principle, meaning they only heat water when the tap is turned on. A traditional tank will heat and reheat the water. The tankless type will give you a virtually endless supply of hot water despite the demands of the household. There is also the added benefit of not having to worry about the hot water heater leaking anymore.
If you have a traditional tank water heater, it is wise to have it serviced every year. A Roto-Rooter technician can flush it out, tighten all the fittings, and check to make sure your anode rod is still good. Replacing your anode rod when necessary will keep the tank from corroding and substantially lengthen the life of your water heater. Paying someone to maintain your appliances is much more cost-efficient than having to replace them often.
Have a maintenance calendar that you can record all your service visits on to keep track of when they need to be done. It is easy to forget about servicing your water heater and letting years go by between checkups. People tend to forget about things that are running properly. They only get attention when something goes wrong. It is also helpful to have a handy file of all your maintenance records, service agreements, and warrantees to refer to when something breaks down.
Keeping everything in your home in good shape is a big responsibility and being organized will make the job a lot easier. Knowing what needs to be done and when it needs doing is half the battle.
