Winter is beautiful, especially in Bend. Snow, mountains, trees, cabins, all contribute to making winter a time people want to spend in the city. But if there’s one thing we know, it’s that warmth is crucial to enjoying winter. Since water heaters are responsible for providing the hot water we all need, we want to make sure you don’t end up without it! Here are some helpful reminders to keep your water heater functioning.
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. Often causing inconveniences like: malfunctions, cold bursts of water, higher water bills and such. 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. Tankless water heaters on the other hand, 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.
