A water heater supplies heated water to the faucet, bath and shower taps throughout the home. In order to keep your water heater functioning properly for the long term, you’ll need to be proactive about maintaining it. Our job is to maximize the lifespan and performance of our clients’ water heaters through regular service.
Manufacturers recommend having your water heater flushed annually. Flushing your water heater is similar to getting your car’s oil changed—it helps maintain efficient performance and prolongs the unit’s lifespan by removing calcium and sediment buildup. Besides flushing the unit, Oro Pro Plumbing’s water heater maintenance service includes complimentary measures such as inspecting the anode rod (which helps prevent corrosion of the tank) and checking for proper ventilation.
Of course, any water heater eventually needs to be replaced. Signs that you’re due for a water heater replacement include reduced performance and signs of rust, calcium buildup, and/or corrosion. Oro Pro Plumbing can replace your water heater quickly and correctly. We observe all plumbing code requirements, including safety measures like double-strapping the tank to the wall. For storage tank water heaters, the owner’s favorite brands include State, Bradford White® and Rheem®.
These days, many homeowners are making the switch from storage tank water heaters to tankless models, which use less energy, take up less space and provide endless hot water. While tankless water heaters aren’t right for every household, in the right scenario, they can be a great investment. We’re happy to assess your water heater situation and determine whether a tankless unit would be a good choice for you. For tankless water heaters, the owner’s favorite brands include Rinnai®, Noritz® and Takagi.
