Water Heater Maintenance in Bucks County

When it comes to water heater maintenance, there are a few different tips and tricks that homeowners might find helpful. At Barner Murphy, we offer reliable and dependable services that cover a full range of water heater issues. If you are a homeowner and need to find ways to keep your water heater functioning properly, then Barner Murphy has a wide range of service options to help. If you’re a new or seasoned home owner, then Barner Murphy can help you get caught up on your water heater maintenance schedule.

One of the best ways to keep your water heater maintained is by adjusting your thermostat. For most water heaters, a simple adjustment to the one hundred twenty-degree mark is enough to reduce the risk of scalding, and the best measure for conserving energy. If you’re looking to keep your heating bills low and you want to have your heater run efficiently at the same time, this is a great way to do it.

Another option for water heater maintenance is to drain about a quarter of the water tank periodically through the year. This helps to remove particles of debris and large pieces of sediment. The best way to do this is to turn off the cold-water supply and then attach a hose to the drain valve. Most people simply allow the water to drain out until it looks clear. If you notice that the water coming out is still cloudy, even at the end of the pour, then you might want to open the valve again to stir up any of the sediment that is still inside.

When it comes to water heater maintenance, the team at Barner Murphy is always ready to offer a hand. Our professionals know exactly what to do to keep your water heater running efficiently no matter what season it is. Another quick tip for proper water heater maintenance is to inspect the water heater for leaks or corrosion. You can also check out the flex house and copings if it is a gas-powered heater. At Barner Murphy, we are always prepared to help our customers with a full range of water heater maintenance needs.
