Why Regular Water Heater Maintenance is Essential: A Milpitas Perspective

September 16, 2023

Water heaters are a cornerstone of modern convenience. They ensure hot showers on cold mornings and aid a myriad of household tasks. However, like all appliances, their efficiency hinges on regular care. For Milpitas residents, understanding the importance of routine water heater maintenance is crucial, not only for comfort but for cost and conservation. Let’s delve into why.

Decoding the Importance of Water Heater Maintenance

The Science Behind Heaters

Water heaters, though designed to last, aren’t invincible. They continually deal with mineral-laden water, temperature fluctuations, and constant usage. These factors, over time, can wear down even the sturdiest of units. Enter water heater maintenance.

Milpitas’ Unique Challenge

Milpitas’ water, though safe, is classified as “hard”. This means it has a high mineral content, especially calcium and magnesium. These minerals can accumulate in water heaters, impacting heater efficiency and longevity.

Key Benefits of Routine Checks

Routine checks aren’t just an annual chore; they’re an investment in:

  • Heater Longevity: Regular maintenance can extend your water heater’s lifespan, ensuring you get the most out of your investment.
  • Energy Efficiency: Sediment buildup can make heaters work harder, consuming more energy. Clean heaters, on the other hand, function efficiently, saving you on energy bills.
  • Safety: A malfunctioning heater can be a hazard, causing scalding water or even explosions in extreme cases. Maintenance checks can identify potential issues early.
  • Water Conservation: A well-maintained heater ensures minimal water wastage as residents don’t need to run taps waiting for the water to heat up.

Elements of Effective Water Heater Maintenance

Flushing the Tank

This is especially crucial for Milpitas homeowners due to our hard water. Periodically flushing the tank can prevent sediment from reducing heater efficiency.

Bella is very knowledgeable about tankless water heaters. She determined that the heater that I purchased from Amazon was the wrong model. She went above and beyond the call of duty. She drove me in her car to the UPS store so I can return the heater and then drove me to the supplier store in San Jose (Pace Supply) so I can buy the correct one. She is very honest and showed me the wholesale price of the heater and used her coupon to get me the wholesale price. Umed, the technician, is an expert and did a great job installing the unit. He arrived on time, was very polite, and cleaned the area after his work was done. Bella and Umed put the customer first and provided an excellent service. I highly recommend United Plumbing because of Bella and Umed, their honesty, great service and expertise.

Technician Beck came on thanksgiving day, working from 3pm till almost 9pm, to replace a new water heater. In the middle of the installment, he even had to go back to his office and pick up new parts. It was very difficult to set up the tubes at my place since the space for the tubes/water heater was limited. Technician was very patient and friendly the whole time. The pipes after Beck’s work are better designed. I am very grateful they are willing to come on a big holiday like thanksgiving, getting the challenging work done without any complaints. Otherwise it would be a cold shower thanksgiving for us. Highly recommend.
United was quick to do an inspection and quote to replace our 20 year old tank water heater for a tankless and was able to start the job the same day. Professional and great service and the price was the lowest I received out of 3 or 4. Highly recommend!
Quality work. Respectful of the property, and clean. Showed up on time. Alex gave good advice, answered numerous questions and only charged for the work performed per agreement. We will call them again.

Yuri was great! Yuri came to inspect the pipes that were hearing while the water is running but unfortunately we weren’t able to hear anything at the time of the inspection. Yuri was able to install a new faucet in my kids bathroom. If you are looking for a plumbing company use United Plumbing, from the office to the field the service was great! I will definitely use Yuri and United plumbing again in the future.
