Oh, how your children’s little hearts beat with anticipation over the start of the upcoming school year. The feeling is palpable and does your heart good to witness the joy of discovery up close and personal.

Or, maybe not so much.

But love it or hate it, it’s that time of year again, and there are bunches of things to do to get ready for that first day the final school bell rings, officially ending summer vacation.

We’d like to suggest, perhaps, one small addition to your back to school “to do” list: “have the water heater inspected.” Huh?

Okay, here’s the logic: all summer long, water heaters in most Kansas City metro homes have gotten used to a little easier pace. Especially with not everyone rushing to get out the door at roughly the same time every Monday through Friday. But now, that schedule is about to revert back to the school year norm. So the question is: can your water heater handle the increased demand for its services?

At LBA, we’re here to help you answer that question to the highest possible degree of certainty with our water heater safety and efficiency inspection. It’s a painstaking process where we inspect your water heater inside and out – literally. Should we find any signs of internal corrosion or sediment build-up inside the storage tank (just as two examples), we’ll explain your options for getting the problem fixed before things get any worse, and repairs become more costly.

Of course, maybe your kids wouldn’t mind a defective water heater. Any excuse to miss a day of school, right? Well, sorry kids, but your LBA heroes are here to keep it working at peak efficiency and safety. Someday, we hope, you’ll thank us for that.
