Albert Nahman Plumbing and Heating - 3 Tips for Keeping Your Water Heater in Top Condition

Water heaters are one of the most taken for granted appliances in our homes. Often locked away in a closet or the garage, we tend to forget about them until there is a catastrophic problem and we have to call an emergency plumber. 

However, there are some ways to avoid these plumbing catastrophes and keep your water heater running like new for years. To keep your water heater running efficiently, all it takes is a little maintenance that you don't even need a plumber for. 

  1. Lower the temperature. Lowering the hot water temperature will prevent your water heater from overheating and save you money on your energy bill. Your water heater accounts for about 20% of your home's energy budget; dialing it down a little can save you a lot.
  2. Flush your water heater. There is a little valve at the bottom of every water heater to drain it. Carefully use this valve to drain a couple of gallons ever few months and you'll flush out the corrosion and sediment from your plumbing, keeping your water heater running smoothly.
  3. Check the valve. On most water heaters, there’s a temperature and pressure valve that keeps your water heater from overheating and building up too much pressure. Consult your owner’s manual and check it regularly to make sure it's functioning. 

Performing these 3 simple steps regularly can keep your water heater running efficiently and save you from a plumbing disaster. If you've ever known someone who has had a water heater fail, then you already know these steps are worth taking.

Albert Nahman Plumbing & Heating - Increase Your Home's Value By Replacing Your Old Pipes

Do you have an old house that’s riddled with plumbing that continuously gives you problems? Every year, people spend millions of dollars on repairing, renovating, and replacing pipes due to damage caused by old plumbing. This means that a home that has been newly re-piped adds value for home buyers. Heavily used areas of the house, like the kitchen and bathroom, are especially attractive when they have been recently redone.

So what are your best options when it comes to re-piping your home? 

  • Water sources. The water coming into your house runs through lines within the walls of your home. Old galvanized and copper pipes should be replaced with newer copper or CPVC pipes to ensure nothing breaks. New water pipes in a home will more than offset the cost of installation, and can even turn a profit if done correctly. 
  • Water heater. Replacing a water heater will also increase your home’s value. Using an on-demand or solar water heater can provide you with energy efficiency, quick hot water, and a higher value on your home when it comes time to sell. 
  • Fixtures. While re-piping your home, take the opportunity to upgrade the fixtures as well. While brand new piping is great, people are usually only impressed by the things they can see.  Nothing says high-quality like new fixtures attached to top-of-the-line piping.  If you're planning, on selling choose fixtures that will appeal to a wide audience. 

When taking the time to have a plumber re-pipe your home, there are additions such as water heaters and fixtures, that will bring even more value to your home. If you're planning on selling your home, then talk to your real estate agent about your local market.  Chances are, they'll tell you that upgrades to kitchens and bathrooms (re-piping included) are always a wise expenditure. 

In the Berkeley area, Albert Naham Plumbing is been the solution for all your plumbing problems. Stop throwing money down the drain and contact us for all your needs. From fixing a leaky faucet to installing a new, we’ve got you covered!
