Most homeowners don’t realize that their water heaters require routine maintenance. By taking the time to flush sediment out, or check the pressure of your thermal expansion tank, you can really help extend the life of a heater. Old heaters can have potential buildup of calcium and other sediments, which can cause them not to heat as efficiently as they once did. These maintenance procedures can be done annually by Farmington Valley Plumbing. Preventive maintenance makes sense. Give us a call for water heater and boiler repair in Hartford, CT, and nearby areas! We’ll keep an eye on your investment.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair or Replacement
Before your traditional or tankless water heater stops working, it’ll give off some warning signs to show it needs some attention. Contact Farmington Valley Plumbing as soon as you notice:
No hot water
Leaks around your water heater
Inadequate hot water
Uneven water temperatures
Increased energy bills
This valve can become faulty for numerous reasons but is usually an easy fix. It’s also a low-cost item.
Gas Control Valve
If you have a gas water heater that’s not heating properly, this can be the problem. Replacing this valve is a little costly and more in-depth than a T&P but can fix your problem.
Another gas water heater issue could be the burner assembly. This can also fix your problem but is quite costly as well.
Leaking Supply Lines
Supply line leaks are a very common issue that can be resolved with minimal cost. Old piping or a bad supply valve can result in a leak, and Farmington Valley Plumbing can get it fixed in no time flat.
Electric Heating Element
This applies only to electric water heaters and is a fairly inexpensive part that commonly gets tired. By draining the tank, we can remove it and get you up and running in no time.
A fairly common issue that can be resolved at a relatively low cost. A bad anode rod can give off a rotten egg smell or cause premature failure of the tank.
If the holding tank itself has started to leak, there is not much hope on saving the water heater. You’ll need to replace it.
This is another issue that can’t be resolved with a repair. If the bottom of the heater can’t support the tank anymore, then it’s time to replace it.
Excessive Mineral Deposits
Flushing your tank of sediment should be a scheduled routine maintenance procedure; Unfortunately, if this is neglected you could be in for a surprise. Excessive mineral deposits can shorten the life of a perfectly good water heater.
Repairing your supply lines can be a simple procedure, but if the water heater taps are corroded or damaged, there is usually not much we can do for it.
