When it’s cold outside, a nice hot shower or bath can be just what you need to get warmed back up. You’ll want to keep your water heater running smoothly this season, so you and your family can enjoy hot water in comfort and safety.
Our pros at Ease Plumbing & Air have some valuable tips to help you do just that!
Matt Says: “In addition to insulating the tank itself, consider adding insulation to the first 6 feet of both the hot and cold water pipes connected to the unit. This will prevent fire hazards and help conserve heat so that your system doesn’t have to work so hard to reheat it.”
Fletcher Says: “While this may seem like an obvious tip, using cold water for most laundry loads (especially during the rinse cycle) and for basic grooming (brushing teeth, washing hands, etc.) will go a long way in helping cut down your utility bill”
Chris Says: “It’s a good idea to replace your water heater if it is more than 10 years old. An old water heater is not only inefficient but could also cause irreparable damage if it leaks or bursts”
Regular maintenance helps extend the life of your water heater, saving you money down the line. Call Ease Plumbing and Air for a complete water heater inspection, and we’ll help make sure it’s working efficiently and safely. (980) 222-4896.
