propane water heater Leominster, ma Your water heater plays an important role in the comfort and function of your home. It generates all the warm and hot water you and your family need to bathe, wash clothes, wash your hands, clean your dishes, and more. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, heating water accounts for roughly 20% of your energy bills. That’s a lot of hot water!

It’s important that your water heater be doing its job as efficiently as possible. That may mean it’s time to replace your water heater or repair it so that it works better for you and your family.

Now That Winter Is Over…

Winter is a tough season for your water heater. The water supply is colder during the winter months, so your water heater has to work harder to get the water to the desired temperature. Your basement is also colder, so storage tank water heaters need to work harder to maintain the desired water temperature.

Now that summer is here, it’s a good time to give your water heater some attention and make sure it’s doing its job as efficiently as possible after working so hard all winter long. The best way to do that is to call Brideau Energy for an annual water heater tune-up.

Is It Time to Replace Your Water Heater?

Whether or not it’s time to consider replacing your water heater has a lot to do with how old it is. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, an upgrade is probably a good idea. And you’ll see the benefits of an upgrade from day one. Your new water heater will be significantly more energy efficient than your old one, so you’ll start saving money on your energy bill the first time you use it. Plus, if you choose a tankless water heater, in addition to having an endless supply of hot water on demand, you won’t have to worry about tank corrosion or leaks.

Water Heater Maintenance To-Do List

Performing a bit of water heater maintenance on a yearly basis can help the longevity of your water heater and help maintain its efficiency as well. That will ensure your water heater is doing its job—and as efficiently as possible.

Basic water heater maintenance:

  1. Check the pressure-relief valve and replace it if necessary.
  2. Drain the tank to get rid of sediment buildup. Unaddressed sediment buildup will decrease the life expectancy of your water heater. It will also reduce its efficiency.

Don’t want to be responsible for your water heater maintenance? No problem! Brideau Energy provides tune-ups, and we’ll make sure that your water heater is doing the best and most efficient job possible.
