Frequently Asked Questions

Can you recommend a maintenance routine that can help prevent water heater failures?

Yes. We highly recommend scheduling routine maintenance for your water heater by certified professionals, like our team of technicians at Bradley Mechanical. Our maintenance routine includes testing the temperature and pressure (T&P) release valve, checking the anode rod, draining and flushing the tank, adjusting the temperature for energy savings, and more. If done annually, these steps can help extend the lifespan of your water heater and help reduce the risk of failures or the need for repairs.

How can I make my water heater last longer?

One of the easiest ways to extend the longevity of your water heater is to flush the tank annually. Flushing your water heater tank removes sediment buildup that can clog valves, cause corrosion or reduce energy efficiency.
