Why should you have your hot water tank gas assembly cleaned and inspected?

Plain and simple, your hot water heater requires regular maintenance

shutterstock_154745501All too often homeowners consider their hot water heater only when it is broken down and there is no hot water. Regardless of the hot water needs you have in your home, manufacturers and energy providers across the board recommend annual inspection and servicing. Most homeowners don’t realize that your hot water heater is the second largest energy consumer in the home.

So what is the worst that can happen if you don’t maintain your hot water tank? While most appliances in your home just sit quiet and still when they fail, a hot water tank failure can find you standing in 40 gallons or more of hot water – literally! Worse yet, an improperly maintained tank could cause explosion, fire, or the release of deadly carbon monoxide gas into your home. The latter are certainly rare circumstances, but they underscore the importance of having a certified professional like Four Seasons inspect and service your hot water tank at your regular cleaning and servicing appointments.
