As much as every homeowner wishes cleaning were the only chore they had, every house requires a certain amount of yearly maintenance, no matter how recently it was built. Gutters need to be cleared, trees need to be trimmed, and various areas of your home need to be serviced – including your plumbing.
You may have crossed off most of your to-do list, but never actually scheduled a plumbing inspection or service. In fact, most homeowners don’t even consider a plumbing service call for preventative maintenance or a checkup.
Some homeowners may be required by their Home Owners Association to complete a yearly inspection, while others may not think twice about their plumbing until a pipe starts leaking or hot water runs out. Just like a car, regular service and maintenance can save you hundreds of dollars in the long run by extending the life of your plumbing and avoiding costly replacements and utility bills.
Of course, the length of your to-do list depends on the different features in your home. Hot water heaters should be serviced/flushed at least once a year, but tankless water heaters may require it less often depending on the model. Gas boilers should also be serviced once a year, especially if it is required to keep the product warranty active. Other appliances, gas lines or even drains may need attention depending on how old they are, or how well they are functioning. When in doubt, consult a trusted plumbing expert who can review your systems and identify any potential issues.
