Water geysers should be serviced regularly for a long and trouble-free operation. The most important reason for servicing water heater is safety and limiting scaling. Scaling is a phenomenon that occurs due to minerals being dissolved in water (high calcium and magnesium). This can cause the accumulation of deposits on the heating elements of a water geyser, which can then reduce performance or even damage the heating element or geyser. If not maintained correctly, a water heater can leak or even explode, resulting in costly home repairs, injuries, or death.
It is important to regularly service water geysers because regular maintenance ensures the efficiency of the geysers. Servicing should be done at least every 12 months or less.
However, if your water heater is showing the below signs, it may indicate a problem:
1. Water is not getting hot enough.
2. The power light keeps going out, or the heating light does not glow.
3. You see steam or smoke coming from the vents on the side of your water heater.
4. There is a bad odor coming from the water heater.
5. Your water heater is making strange noises like gurgling or hissing sounds.
6. The water heater is rusted or leaking.
Above are some warning signs that call for service.
1. It increases the life of water geysers:
a) A regularly maintained water heater will last longer than one that hasn’t been cared for properly. Regular servicing can prevent major repairs down the road by catching problems early on before they get out of hand and expensive.
b) If you do not service your water geyser regularly, you may be inviting unwanted problems like rusted tanks, leaking pipes, and erratic temperature fluctuations. Once the water in the tank is heated up over some time, it can lead to corrosion inside the tank and cause mineral deposits to form at the bottom. Therefore, it is best to get the geyser inspected by a professional at least once every six months, or even more frequently if there is hard water in your area.
2. Water geyser service reduces energy consumption:
a) By getting the water geyser serviced, you are helping to ensure that excess energy isn’t being used to heat or reheat water in your tank. It’s important to remember that we live in a world of finite resources, and the less energy your geyser is using, the better.
b) Servicing water geyser also helps make it more efficient overall—which means less time waiting for hot water and lower power bills. That’s good news both environmentally and financially.
Taking care of your water geyser and ensuring that it continues to function well will save you money and hassles. As with most things in life, prevention is the best cure. By performing regular checks and servicing, you will ensure a long life for your water geyser.
