Tips about Water Heater Maintenance or Replacement Everyone Should Know
If you have a gas water heater, you should periodically check the pilot light. The flame should be blue with a yellow tip. If the entire flame is yellow, this may mean you need a safety adjustment. Contact a professional to fix the problem.
While you are under your water heater checking the pilot light, make sure there is not an excessive buildup of soot. This can cause a clogged flue, which in turn can lead to carbon monoxide leaking into your home. Thus, cleaning any soot is of vital importance!
Sediment buildup at the bottom of your tank can cause a multitude of problems, such as causing your heater to make loud noises or hindering performance. You can avoid this by draining the water from the tank annually.
Have your hot water heater inspected by a contractor at a minimum once every two years. He or she can diagnose potential problems and enact easy, quick repairs, which will save you from a complete water heater replacement down the road.
