Water Heater Flushing
Everything needs maintenance: the yard, house, car, etc. Your water heater is a part of that list. Getting your water heater flushed is important to its health and longevity. This is because of the sediment and mineral build-up that occurs over time if not taken care of properly.
If your water heater isn’t maintained, it could lead to malfunctions, cold bursts of water, higher water bills, and more. Manufacturers recommend getting your water heater flushed annually, which is why we include it as part of our Service Plan offering.
*If your water heater is older and you’ve never flushed it before, please consult a plumber before doing so.
Water Heater Lifespan
Water heaters don’t live forever, though we certainly wish they would–wouldn’t that be nice?
Traditional water heaters have a lifespan of 8-12 years. Some make it beyond that, but the chances of there being a leak or deterioration are high. Energy-efficient tankless water heaters can live up to 20 years.
Most water heaters have a date of installation written on them, so we encourage you to check and consider an upgrade if yours has served its time. Is it getting close to the time to replace it? Contact Simpsons Plumbing for water heater replacement in Bend. You don’t want to wait for it to give out in the middle of a nice hot shower!
