Water Heater Maintenance & Repair
At Premier Comfort, we understand the importance of having hot water at home, ready to use whenever you need it. However, many homeowners will only think about their water heater when it is no longer working and suddenly their hot water turns frigid.
Don’t get stuck with a cold shower! Preventative maintenance can go quite far toward extending the life of your water heater and preventing emergency breakdowns. Maintaining your water heater can impact its lifespan and give you the peace of mind you need in having hot water at all times in your home.

Why Water Heater Maintenance Matters
A functioning water heater is clean, insulated and properly wired. Mineral deposits can be a water heater’s biggest enemy, and issues with insulation or wiring can leave you with nothing but cold water. That’s why routine water heater maintenance is so important. Not only does regular maintenance keep your water heater working properly, but it can also reduce the need for replacing elements and tanks, which can be quite costly.
Even though lifespans vary on these appliances (depending on the type of system as well as other various factors) in general, a properly maintained water heater can last up to 10 years. Scheduling regular water heater maintenance will also help keep your home’s utility bills lower by ensuring that you have a reliable and efficient system installed.
