After you have a water heater installed, do what you can to prolong the life of the water heater. The more you prolong its life, the more money you will save overall and the fewer headaches you will suffer.
Fortunately, some maintenance tasks only have to be performed once and others only have to be performed annually. Here are some maintenance tips to help you prolong the life of your water heater.
If you purchase a home with a water heater already installed, make sure that you know what type of water heater you have. You will at least want to know the age and gallon capacity. These will be needed by a plumber or water heater technician. Also it is wise to look for warranty information. This information is commonly listed on a sticker on the water heater tank. Compare the warranty with the age of the unit. The manufacturers set the warranty limit for a reason, so if the water heater age is nearing or surpassed the warranty, it will be a good idea to check for signs of malfunction more frequently.
