A struggling water heater doesn’t run as efficiently as a well-maintained one.
As obvious as this sounds, it’s easy to forget how many benefits there are to regular water-heater maintenance. Besides avoiding a disaster, routine water-heater maintenance pays for itself because your water heater requires more energy to get to your desired water temperature impacting your energy bills. Also, maintenance has been known to catch leaks and issues before they are problems which will extend the life of your water heater by 25%-100%+ in some cases.
