Gas and Electric Water Heater Service
At Central Carolina, we know how to service all kinds of water heaters. For water heater service we take the following steps to service your equipment. We understand that when your hot water heater is working properly it produces more hot water at a lower cost.
Flush The Water Heater
Over time, the hot temperature of the water in the tank causes lime sediments from the water to tend to build up in the bottom of the tank (depending on the water’s hardness). This build-up causes the water heater to lose heat transfer efficiency, which means that the water heater has to work harder to heat the water, making it more expensive to operate.
Test Relief Valves
The pressure relief valve is an important safety feature of your water heater. If too much pressure builds up on the tank, the pressure relief valve opens up to relieve the pressure. However, corrosion or scale build-up can prevent the valve from operating properly, potentially resulting in the tank exploding. Therefore it is very important to test the pressure relief valve to ensure that is it operating properly.
Loose or worn wiring can lead to loss of hot water and can be dangerous.
Gas Leaks (If Applicable)
We will leak check the gas line from the water heater shut-off valve to the burners. Undetected gas leaks are dangerous and result in higher gas bills.
Leaks may indicate a serious problem which can be costly. When leaks are found early, appropriate action can be taken on a non-emergency basis.
Emergency Cutoff Operation
If you are not aware of where the emergency water cutoff is located, or if it is inoperable, this could cause a costly problem if you have a leak.
Proper Draft Vent
Improper or back drafting (flue spillage) from your water heater could allow the excessive formation of carbon monoxide. This could then enter your home.
Drain Valve Operation
The drain valve is used for flushing sediment from the tank and draining the water heater in case of repairs and/or replacement.
