Water Heater Maintenance Services in Greer, South Carolina
We rely on our water heaters more than you may think. They keep us warm and comfortable when we bathe, ensure our dishes are clean and sanitary, and more. Here at Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air, we have experience conducting maintenance on virtually all water heater types and models. Read on to learn more about our water heater maintenance services in the Greer, South Carolina area.
Signs Your Water Heater Might Need Maintenance
- The unit is leaking. Puddles near the unit or dripping leaks are usual signs of structural damage and need to be dealt with quickly to avoid a burst tank or a critical failure.
- The hot water runs out faster than it used to. Water heaters lose efficiency naturally due to wear and tear, part corrosion, sediment build-up, and other factors. If your hot water isn’t lasting as long, this is a clear sign you should call in a maintenance tech for a tune-up and inspection.
- The unit is making strange noises. Moaning, banging, clanking – probably not a ghost who had one too many cold showers in their lifetime. Probably a problem with the water heater.
- The water from your tap is brown with rust. Eventually, the protective coatings and attachments in your water heater will start to erode, causing the fixture to release rust and other harmful components into your water. This problem can be mitigated (or wholly avoided) with regular annual maintenance.
- The unit is older. Depending on the make and model, your water heater will usually run between 8 and 15 years. Regular annual maintenance can extend this average life span by years if conducted by qualified plumbers.

Water Heater FAQs
Do water heaters need a lot of maintenance?
Not at all! A singular annual inspection is usually enough to keep your water heater alive for its entire service life.
How much does water heater maintenance cost?
Water heater maintenance costs depend on the power source, make, and model, annual maintenance packages.
How long do water heaters last?
With routine, high-quality maintenance, a water heater can last anywhere between 8 to 15 years – and maintenance almost always guarantees the higher end of that spectrum.
