Our Water Heater Maintenance Checklist

If you don’t want to have to call us and say, “Fix my water heater,” then make sure you call us for regular water heater maintenance in Framingham! We’ll do everything we can to keep your water heater running well so you can always have the hot water you need, including:

  • Check temperature settings. While 120 is the recommended setting, you’ll save roughly 5% in heating costs for every 10 degrees that you turn it down. The dial that sets this can get bumped around fairly easily, so we’ll make sure it’s set where you want it.
  • Test temperature release valve. We’ll discharge the valve about 5 times. If it’s leaking, we’ll be able to tell and get it fixed for you!
  • Flush your water heater. We will drain about one quarter to one third of the tank to remove any sediment or other debris that has built up.We’ll also walk you through this process so you can try it yourself next time, if you’re interested in doing so!
  • Maintain clearance. Most water heaters need about 2 feet of clearance on all sides unless otherwise indicated in your owner’s manual, so we’ll be sure that’s the case for your appliance.

  • “I cannot thank Nicholson enough for the thorough job they performed at my house replacing a wax ring, flange and most importantly a leaking pipe in my dining room ceiling. They are extremely knowledgeable who were polite, made friends with my pets and cleaned up the area before they left. Super nice guys! I would highly recommend them to anyone needing simple plumbing fixes or complex jobs. The price was very very reasonable too. I happily paid.”
