Does Your Water Heater Need Repair?
If there’s any appliance the Comfort Bear doesn’t want to be without, it’s a water heater! Sure, I may have a lot of fur to keep me warm but let’s face it, chilly showers aren’t fun for anyone.
Plus, who wants to wash their dishes and clothes with artic water? Not the Comfort Bear, that’s for sure.
Unfortunately, many homeowners take their water heaters a bit for granted. Like the majority of their plumbing systems, water heaters are usually tucked away, out of sight in a corner of the garage or inside a storage closet. This means that when something goes wrong with it, it’s often missed until it’s too late.
It’s important to know the signs for when your water heater is in trouble, which we’ve highlighted below. Read on, and contact the Comfort Bear with any questions you might have!
