Did you know you can increase the life of your water heater simply by maintenance?
The average cost to replace a hot water heater in Glendale is roughly $1,000 depending on the size and if your space can accommodate the new, federally mandated larger units. If the water heater is not where you can hear it, you may not even be aware that your water heater is singing to you, or making a popping, bubbling, noise.
A buildup of scale and sediment in your water heater results in water heater noise. This occurs due to the buildup of scale and sediment on your water heater elements, which results in water heater noise. Rather than wondering, consider any unusual noise coming from your unit as a cry for help. One visit from a reputable plumber can help extend the life of your unit by years.
Every water heating unit contains what’s called an “anode rod.”
An anode rod is a sacrificial element, meaning it gives its life (corrodes) to prevent tank and water system corrosion. Installing a new anode rod can extend the life of your unit significantly and is an important step in preventative maintenance.
Another step is to flush your water heater. This removes particulates like rust and dissolving anode rod material. While you can do it yourself, it’s a task most homeowners put off until it’s too late.
