Professional Water Heater Maintenance

Water heaters are an essential part of any comfortable, convenient home. When working properly, you can count on it to provide hot water for cooking, cleaning and much more. But like any mechanical system, it won’t always run at peak efficiency. You can help keep your water heater in the best possible condition by investing in routine preventive maintenance. Olympic Aire is happy to complete exhaustive water heater maintenance in White Plains to ensure appliances like your water heater are always in peak condition.

Routine maintenance consists of regularly scheduled inspections, cleaning and tune-ups to sustain energy efficiency and consistent performance. Additionally, such comprehensive services are available for both tank and tankless water heaters, although there may be differences in the specific tasks necessary.

What Does Water Heater Maintenance Consist of?

At Olympic Aire, we make sure our technicians are trained on both tank and tankless water heaters. No matter which type you have, maintenance can improve every aspect of how your water heater performs. Maintenance often consists of:

Inspections: Your technician should start with a thorough inspection of your water heater to identify any issues or potential problems. Key elements of an inspection can be checking the pressure relief valve, thermostat settings and other components. Sometimes an issue can be resolved with simple tasks like recalibrating the thermostat, which may be necessary if the water isn’t being heated properly.

Cleaning and Draining/Flushing: A common reason for a loss in efficiency is the buildup of minerals and sediment inside your water heater. Flushing your water heater helps remove any sediment buildup while also making it possible to clean the burner assembly or heating element.

Quick/Minor Repairs: When damage or other issues are found in the course of our inspection, it’s the perfect opportunity to go ahead and complete the needed repairs. As you can imagine, completing water heater repair now usually costs less than a full repair appointment.

Replacement Parts: When a faulty part needs to be replaced, we have access to superior replacement parts to ensure your water heater enjoys the same standards of quality. As an example, we recommend replacing the anode rod every few years since it is designed to attract mineral buildup like magnesium, iron, limestone and more.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Maintenance

Homeowners sometimes think they won’t have to worry about preventive maintenance until there’s a problem severe enough to require repair. If you want to minimize this risk, it’s highly beneficial to become familiar with the signs that your water heater needs maintenance. Some key things to look for include:


Lack of Hot Water

If you’re not getting enough hot water or the water isn’t as hot as it used to be, it’s a sign that your water heater needs maintenance.

Strange Noises

The sudden appearance of noises like popping or rumbling sounds from your water heater often means sediment and mineral buildup should be cleaned out.



Leaking Water

Found a small pool of water close to your water heater? A leak might have appeared close by, including from the water heater itself.

Foul Odors

Foul smells coming from your hot water heater could be a sign of bacteria buildup in the tank, which requires cleaning.
