A water heater is something people rarely think about and one of the things we often take most for granted. However, when your water heater breaks down, and suddenly there’s no hot water for things like washing dishes or bathing, you realize just how much it impacts your daily life. An unpleasant water heater repair can easily be avoided by having your water heater inspected by the experts at Access Heating & Air Conditioning to ensure that it’s working at its peak performance.
Boise Water Heater Checkups
We all like to think that a water heater breakdown won’t happen to us, but it’s a costly possibility homeowners often pay for if they don’t pay attention to its age and maintenance needs. While some issues around your home may be put off for a little while, water heater maintenance isn’t one of them. Having your system regularly inspected and serviced by the Boise water heater professionals at Access Heating & Air Conditioning is one of the most important things you can do for your home.
Even more, if your water heater is old or in need of repair, the consequences can be expensive and sometimes disastrous. Keep in mind that many homeowner’s insurance companies don’t cover floods from water heaters that are over ten years old. While the odds of a catastrophic failure are quite low, they are known to happen. However, most of the time, if your water heater malfunctions, it’s much more likely that it will just stop working correctly. Oftentimes issues such as these result in extended periods of time for the water to heat up, or water not being as hot as it used to be. Problems such as these are often caused by a burned-out heating element which is usually simple to replace. However, other problems can be less straightforward relating to its age or state of deterioration.
Maintaining and Repairing Your Water Heater
It’s also never a good idea to try and work on your water heater yourself. EVER. Attempting a DIY repair can result in serious injuries and other potentially harmful risks. A DIY repair will also violate the warranty on the water heater itself. Since there’s a good chance that your water heater is still covered under its manufacturer’s warranty, any attempt to repair it yourself will almost always violate the warranty. If you need additional water heater repairs or a total system replacement, this will leave you to foot a hefty bill.
At Access Heating, our Boise water heater technicians will do everything they can to get your system working again in tip-top condition. However, sometimes a water heater may be too far gone or old to find replacement parts for. Just like everything else, water heaters have a lifespan, and it’s possible that yours may be approaching its time. While the last thing we like to do is tell our clients that they need a total system replacement, it is sometimes necessary. A malfunctioning water heater isn’t like a squeaky door hinge, and it cannot be ignored. The potential for financial loss or physical harm is just too much of a risk to take.
