Professional Water Heater Inspection
Even if all seems well with your water heater, it’s a good idea to schedule water heater service from time to time just to make sure that everything is kosher. Sediment buildup is a common problem with water heaters New Orleans, especially in older units. Over time, limescale, calcium, and magnesium can collect on the sides of the tank and around the burner. These minerals should be filtered out of the unit so they don’t create a sediment barrier on the burner and disrupt water heater performance. Water heater filtration can flush out these minerals and prevent a malfunction. The burner should also be inspected periodically to ensure that the flame is blue with a yellow tip. If the flame is yellow-orange, it will affect your water heater’s performance, and it could release carbon monoxide fumes into your indoor air.
Is it Time For a New Water Heater Installation?
Water heaters can last up to 12 years. After that, they begin to lose efficiency or they stop working altogether. Although most people wait until the existing unit gives out before they schedule a new water heater installation, it makes more sense to shop around ahead of time for the best possible option at the lowest possible price. Water heaters gobble energy; according to some estimates, they consume 25 percent of the total New Orleans residential energy use. As the unit ages, it loses efficiency and costs more to operate, which is another good reason to schedule a new water heater installation sooner rather than later.
