Scottsdale, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2014 -- Question: What’s the only thing hotter than Arizona summers?
Answer: Water heaters in Arizona summers
OMW Plumbing, a local Scottsdale plumbing company, wants residents to be aware that boiling hot summer temperatures can take a significant toll on their water heaters.
Generally, a high quality water heater lasts anywhere from 8 to 12 years. However, the life cycle of a water heater can be significantly reduced due to a variety of different factors. To extend the life cycle of water heaters, OMW recommends the following
- Remove sediment and debris from the water tank
- Drain a quarter of your tank a few times a year
- Activate vacation settings on water heaters (if applicable) when out of town
- Lower temperatures during the summer months so that the water heater doesn’t have to work as hard
Finally, to avoid any water heating disasters, OMW reminds residents to check the supply line for any leaks. While this won’t extend the life of water heaters, it will help homeowners steer clear of any stress and frustration in the future.
