No matter what season it is here in the Salt Lake City area, and no matter what the temperature it is outside, there is one home comfort system that you need to consistently work each and every day—your water heater. This is one of those systems that’s really easy to take for granted. After all, do you ever think about how you get the hot water to your taps whenever you need it?
Consider the amount of strain a water heater goes under. It operates 365 days a year. You can’t expect it to work reliably 100% of that time. Of course, it’s a lot less likely that you’ll have surprise repair needs if you invest in routine water heater maintenance. We recommend this once a year for tank water heaters, and perhaps less often for tankless systems, depending on a few factors. But even with maintenance, it’s important to know the signs that you’re in need of water heater repair and your system needs our professional help. Read on to learn what these signs are!
