3 Reasons Why You Should Repair Your Water Heater
Water heaters are an important domestic appliance used on daily basis. The warm water is then transported to different pipes around the house connected to dishwashers, faucets, sinks, showers, and washing machines. The average life expectancy of a water heater ranges between 8 to 12 years. The latter expectancy can only be achieved with proper maintenance and regular repairs.
In any case, a water heater can malfunction at any time. But in most cases, before it shuts off completely, it gives off signs of possible malfunctions and that’s what we have to pay attention to. For instance, if the temperature of the water remains unchanged despite turning on the heating system, it’s malfunctioning.
No one wants to shower with cold water first thing in the morning. In addition, showering with cold water triggers your body to switch on survival mode leading to increased blood circulation and irregular heartbeat.
Here’s why you should keep a check on your water heating system and call residential plumbing services in Boynton Beach when needed.
The structure of a water heater consists of an outer jacket and inner jacket or covering of steel. On the inside, there is a storage tank where water is heated by the heat supplied through a metal rod which is wrapped in an exhaust flue. The space between the inner and outer layers is filled with an insulation material that prevents heat loss and keeps the water hot.
Sometimes, depending upon the quality of the water, sediment collects at the base of the water tank leading to decreased space for water storage. As a result, the tank space is not utilized fully and the water supply finishes quickly. When the sediment is removed, it resumes functioning as before
The water heating systems around the world consume an enormous amount of electricity, causing your electric bills to skyrocket. An estimated 40% of a household’s utility bills goes in its water heating system. This number only goes up if the water system is faulty because a malfunctioning system consumes more electricity. Thus, running a repair check on your water heater annually or bi-annually can save you a lot of money as well as your time from being wasted on unnecessary repairs frequently.
Maximum Life Expectancy
As mentioned above, the average life expectancy of a water heater is around 8 to 12 years, only with regular repairs carried out bi-annually or annually. However, if you maintain it more frequently, it can exceed its average lifespan and keep providing you with a non-stop supply of hot water.
