4 Water Heater Maintenance Tips from Our Red Oak Plumber

Posted on: December 31, 2015

Furnaces, HVAC systems and water heaters are some of the most important appliances in our Red Oak homes and most days, we don’t even think about them. And that’s how it should be. They should be humming along, quietly in the background.

However, once a year, give your water heater a little time and attention. It can make a lot of difference over the lifetime of one of your home’s hardest working appliances.

1. Flush it Out

Sediment and debris accumulates over time inside your water heater tank. Periodic tank cleanings will help your water heater work more efficiently. Running more efficiently means lower your energy costs and helps reduce the amount of noise your water heater makes.

2.  Give it Some Space

Not only is it a fire hazard to crowd your water heater, it can also lower your unit’s efficiency. Gas heaters need oxygen to function. Blocking the tank limits the flow of oxygen to the combustion chamber forcing it to work harder using more energy to heat up the water in the tank. The extra strain can damage the pilot light and other heating elements.

3. Give it a Check Up

Check pipes, valves, the gas line and pilot light for corrosion, black residue or burn marks. Look for damp spots on the floor or other signs of water leaks. If you see any kind of damage or suspect something is off call in a specialist, like those at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. Each plumber on our team is highly trained and can assess your water heater for hidden problems.

4. Turn Down the Heat

It’s best to set the temperature of hot water heater between 115 to 120 degrees. A 10-degree difference can mean energy savings for you. In some instances, up to 5 percent! If you’re going away for three days or more turn the thermostat down to its lowest setting for even more energy savings.

5. BONUS TIP!

Well… it’s not really a bonus tip, more like a suggestion. Just because water heater maintenance is a good idea doesn’t mean you have to be the one to do it. Hire a plumber! But don’t bring in any Red Oak plumber. Call a local, licensed professional such as Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning and let us can take care of the dirty work.

Great service




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

This company always makes my service experience pleasant. I get a courtesy call to confirm the appointment and to let me know the arrival time for the appointment. The plumber, James, gives a great explanation for the work needed and is very efficient at doing the job. I can definitely recommend this company.

Excellent Service - Outstanding




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Starting with my initial call and interaction with the Office Manager Andy, the service was outstanding. The onsite team beginning with Matt, the leak detection person and ending with the plumbers (Jonathan and James), the service was excellent. I highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.

Great Service and Awesome Price!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

My serviceman was Don. He was Awesome! I was extremely pleased with the service. Before starting he thoroughly checked the job out to see what was entailed. He helped me pick out the items I would need and took time to answer my questions and concerns.It was evident that he wanted to do a good job and the customer was first which was me. I was educated on the procedures. He told me what he needed to do, how it was going to be, and how long it would take. And he gave me a good price. Don is experienced and highly efficient. He is well-organized and neat. His work is eye-catching and eye-pleasing. There were no water drippings or stains left on my white tile floor. When finished, he left his work area neat and clean. He hauled old items away. He did an AWESOME job! I recommend Dial One Johnson Plumbing which I will be using again and again. And I will be personally asking for Don. When the job, was finished he thanked me for allowing him to serve me.Good customer service means a lot.

Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

Exceptional customer service from Debra taking the initial call to James fixing the plumbing issue. My telephone call to Dial One was taken quickly and efficiently addressed; no long wait on line for a person to answer. My information on the problem was promptly taken and steps taken to help me. James arrived promptly and was working to fix the plumbing issue within minutes of arriving at our home. James definitely knew what he was doing, very knowledgeable and very personable. If Debra and James are the typical caliber of Dial One employees, Dial One is a solid service provide and be my “go to” company. My thanks to Debra and James, they made resolution to this problem a quick, easy fix for us.

Best Plummer Ever!




Review of Dial One Johnson Plumbing

I called there office in a panic! There was water in the closet by my hall bath. I had already had three Plummer’s out and the all said the leak was fixed. The whole shower had been taken out and the cold water rerouted because of THE LEAK. Well there went a thousand dollars. But we still had the leak! We had to pay to have the tub and tile replaced another seventeen hundred dollars we still Have THE LEAK! They have to tear out some of the brand new tile and replace the faucet . And had to pay to have that repaired two hundred fifty dollars! Go into the bedroom in the closet this morning and THE LEAK is back!! All over the carpet now we are back to square one. I call your office and the lady that answered the phone was very kind and I was about to loose it. I felt like I had been betrayed by three different Plummer’s and did not know who to trust. She assured me that your technicians were the best and would find the problem. Then the man of the day showed up to my door same day mind you. And he did not know he was going to be the man of the day at least in my world. Curley walked me through each and every step of what he was doing and showed me how he eliminated each possibility to get to the root of THE LEAK! Finally a resolution was in sight! He found it with his trusty camera and plus all the water everywhere behind the wall. He showed it to me and I was so happy to see it could be fixed. I was thinking we must have a leak in the slap which would mean the tub and tile work would all have to be redone and I was so relieved Curley and his apprentice where very professional, kind, and just the best! They cleaned up everything like nothing had happened😁 My husband arrived right as they were getting ready to leave and I him if he could show him what they had done and he did. My husband was was very impressed with him as well and appreciated him taking the time to show him what the problem was. I can not say enough good things about Curley. I will recommend your company every one I know. Thank you for making my day by finding THE LEAK!
