Inspecting a Water Heater
Before your water heater can be repaired, you need to know what is wrong with it. In many cases, that is not as simple as looking at it. You need to know what you’re looking for and where to look. Water heaters systems are complex; they are not units that you want to explore in search of a problem to be fixed when you have no professional experience with them.
Water heater inspection and testing involve more than looking at a water heater to see whether something is working. During a water heater inspection, your technician will evaluate all parts of the system–valves, tank, electrical components, etc. This person will check all power sources to make sure that connection is not the fault. If the unit is getting power but is not heating, then the heating element will have to be checked. Sometimes, all you need is to clean the tank; filth in the tank affect the system and a good flush will solve the problem.
The best chance you have to find the problem and correct it is to schedule a professional inspection. An expert will be more thorough and quick about the inspection and will be able to fix what is wrong, giving you an all-in-one solution.
Water Heater Testing
Water heater testing is sometimes necessary during an inspection. A water heater has elements that take the power and turn it into heat for the water. The heating element is an item that often needs testing to make sure that it is heating properly, including independent of the rest of the unit. The thermostat may need to be tested to make sure it’s controlling the temperature as it should.
Be sure that your water heater is functioning well and ready when you need. Schedule a water heater inspection in Clifton Township and Scranton, PA by calling (570) 468-8217.
