INCREASING YOUR WATER HEATER'S SERVICE LIFE AND, PROVIDING ENERGY SAVINGS!
The maintenance of an electric water heater is within everyone's reach providing you follow the manufacturer's guidelines. However, you are free to ask your installer for a biennial maintenance contract if possible. It is highly recommended for thermodynamic and solar water heaters.
Regardless of the type of technology, three operations must be carried out regularly:
For thermodynamic water heaters, add to the procedure dust removal for filters at least once a year. Caution: a refrigeration certification is required to control the tightness of the circuit containing the refrigerant (needed for the heat pump to operate). For solar water heaters, check on a regular basis the cleanliness of the solar collectors installed on the roof. In general, no intervention is needed, rain washes dust and other deposits.
