Wilkes–Barre, PA Water Heater Maintenance Services by Green Planet Solutions Corp

Your water heater is an extremely hard working home system, responsible for all the hot water you use without a second thought. Storage tank water heaters, the most common type in the country, even keep large amounts of water heated at all times in case there is a need for it.

You likely use your water heater’s services far more often than your heater, air conditioner, or any other major appliance aside from your electrical grid. If you want your water heater to last as long as possible under that amount of use, it’s a good idea to schedule professional maintenance for it on a regular basis. Read on to find out about some of the professional water heater maintenance services we provide. If you have any questions, please give us a call.

Green Planet Solutions Corp provides water heater maintenance services in Wilkes–Barre, PA and the surrounding areas.

We Can Flush Out Your Water Heater for You

Every so often, it’s a good idea to have your water heater flushed out. This is due to an accumulation of sediment in the bottom of the water heater from the water that flows through it. If you have a problem with especially hard water, this buildup will happen a lot faster. This is especially problematic with gas water heaters, which heat water from underneath the tank using a flame. If the sediment buildup gets high enough, it can prevent the flame from transferring as much heat to the water and decrease the overall effectiveness of the heater.

Flushing the sediment is as simple as opening a valve and allowing the water to run out of the tank. This will start to purge the tank of any sediment buildup present in it. The water is allowed to run for as long as the water coming out of the tank is discolored. Once the water has cleared, the valve can be closed and the system returned to normal use.

We Offer Water Heater Cleaning Services

If you have significant sediment buildup in your water heater, simply draining it will not be enough to purge it completely. When water heater draining doesn’t work, we have to move on to a more extensive water heater cleaning effort. During water heater cleaning, we actually have to go in and physically remove the sediment deposits from the water heater with brushes and other tools. Once this is done, the water heater will be flushed one more time to make sure any loose particles are removed from the system.

Water heater cleaning is reserved for the most advanced cases of sediment buildup, and is not necessary every time. When it becomes a problem, though, you can rest assured that we’ll solve it for you. Green Planet Solutions Corp employs professional water heater technicians, with many years of experience in handling water heater maintenance. No matter what your water heater maintenance needs are, we can make sure that they are taken care of. Call us today to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions about our services.
