How Often Should Your Water Heater Be Maintained?



The day your water heater goes out isn’t a fun day for anyone. Having a well-functioning water heater is crucial for any home. Hope plumbing can help you install, repair, or replace your water heater, but regular maintenance may minimize how often your water heater needs to be repaired or replaced. So, how often should your water heater be checked or maintained?


Water Heater Maintenance


You may have no idea when your water heater was last maintained, and you may not have known that it even needs regular maintenance. Most people don’t think about the condition of their water heater, unless disaster strikes.


Most water heaters should last, on average, 8-12 years. However, we highly recommend having your water heater checked annually to ensure it’s staying in tip top shape. Having your water heater flushed annually will help it to last longer. Regular check-ups and maintenance will improve the longevity of your water heater, and help to postpone the need for a water heater replacement. Don’t wait until your water heater breaks down to call the professionals!
