One problem that is unique to storage tank water heaters is the issue of standby energy loss. A tank water heater keeps a reservoir of hot water at the ready, meaning that an insufficiently insulated storage tank will allow some of the heat to be lost during storage. Extra insulation can be purchased in the form of precut jackets.
If you use a gas water heater you can also lower the temperature that the water heater maintains. With certain types of water heaters lowering the temperature can cause some health concerns, so be sure to read the literature you have regarding your specific model. Any questions about this measure can also be directed to a water heater professional at your local service provider.
By far the best way that you can maintain the highly efficient operation of your water heater is to schedule regular, professional maintenance service with a qualified water heater technician. If you have not scheduled maintenance in the past year you may be surprised to see how much of a difference this service can make. It is also the best way to reduce the likelihood that you will have to schedule repair services for your water heater.
