From cooking to bathing to cleaning, you rely on your Jefferson, Louisiana, home’s water heater to provide hot water around the clock. Putting off water heater maintenance might save you a little time in the short run, but it could cost you in the long run. From increasing the device’s efficiency to keeping your family healthy, discover some of the top benefits of getting a professional water heater inspection.
Whether you’re an eco-conscious homeowner or you simply want to lower your utility bills, saving energy should be music to your ears. One of the biggest perks of a regular inspection is that it helps your water heater save energy. At Bryans United Air Conditioning, our team is trained to test the pressure release valve, check the temperature, and remove sediment to increase your water heater’s efficiency and help you save money.
Prevent a Major Breakdown
When your water heater runs flawlessly for months or years without a tuneup, the thought of a major breakdown might never cross your mind. Since water heaters require basic maintenance to run smoothly, however, a system failure could be right around the corner. A professional inspection will give you peace of mind and could even lengthen the lifespan of your system, since our team checks for telltale signs of impending breakdowns, such as rusty spots, interior corrosion, and excessive sediment buildup.
Keep Your Family Healthy
If your water heater runs on natural gas, like many models do, a standard inspection will include a burner check. Our team knows how important it is to make sure the burner has a blue flame with a yellow tip. If the flame is predominantly yellow or orange, your water heater could release harmful carbon monoxide into your home, endangering your family’s health.
If it’s been over a year since you last scheduled water heater maintenance, this is the ideal time to get an inspection on your calendar. Call Bryans United Air Conditioning at 504-208-2071 to schedule a tuneup today.
