A water heater is an appliance everyone wants to be working properly at all times. Cold showers are no fun and there are many uses for hot water so you will definitely need a fully functional unit for a long period. Be sure to consult a plumber in Westlake, LA, from Allstar Plumbing to have a pro check on your water heater. 

Avoid the frequent need for water heater repair in Westlake, LA, by making sure that you maintain it properly. Here are a few tips that can help you in the long run.

A Professional Check

Water heater maintenance in Westlake, LA, should be explained by the professionals, to ensure that it is done properly. After all, there are a few myths floating around that can just damage your unit.

One course of action that you can take to extend the life of your tankless water heater in Westlake, LA,  is checking your pressure valve with the assistance of the Allstar Plumbing team. A proper working valve will control the pressure and prevent any build-up of residue. Once we determine that this is in need of a more thorough assessment, this could mean a repair or replacement of this vital part may be in order.

A Quick Flush

Another routine maintenance tip we can recommend is to flush your water heater at least once monthly. This helps keep your water heater free of built-up sediment. The Anode rod is another significant part inside your water heater that we will need to inspect. We will make sure to provide you a maintenance plan to extend the lifespan of your system.
