Is this an emergency?

Providing Service in these CT Communities:

There are certain events that can only take place at various specific times. Take going to Fenway Park to catch the Red Sox home opener, for example. You either make plans to go in April or you skip it until next year. Love to go blueberry picking? You have a very small window of opportunity come June each year, or you depend on your favorite grocery store to keep you supplied. You get the idea.

And then there are other life events that are equally beneficial no matter when you schedule them. That includes annual water heater maintenance. The important thing is to get it done and be faithful to having that service performed by a licensed plumber each year without fail. If, however, we were to recommend one month in particular, it would be August – just before your kids go back to school and the early-morning demands on your water heater tend to spike dramatically.

If, however, you’re still wondering why you should bother paying for a water heater performance and safety inspection in the first place, we’re more than happy to give you several good reasons:

  • blogEnables your plumber to catch small problems, if any, before they become bigger and costlier to repair.
  • Extends the lifespan of your system which, typically, is only 10 – 12 years.
  • Enhances the safety of your home and family by allowing early detection of a potential gas or carbon monoxide leak.
  • Helps prevent scalding by ensuring the thermostat is set at the right temperature.

The point is, when your water heater is performing up to par, you and other family members have one less thing to fuss, argue, or worry about. So whether you’re gearing up for the start of a new school year or reading this blog in a month other than August, contact CT Mechanical Solutions today to request our water heater performance and safety inspection, especially if it’s been a year or longer since your last inspection.
