When was the last time your water heater was flushed?
Flushing your heater removes build-up of minerals from the inside of the tank, extending the life of your heater and ensuring it is working at maximum efficiency. We recommend your heater is flushed once a year. This is a service a customer could attempt to perform without the guidance of a professional, but there are some serious potential errors that can be made. A customer could break their drain valve or damage the heater’s elements, causing expensive repairs to be needed. If your water heater needs to be flushed, we recommend you call a professional!
“As the weather starts to cool, I can’t help but be reminded of the season of change. Kids start to go back to school, work schedules change, the leaves fall, seasonal foods and much more are just on the horizon. I am reminded when season change to do regular maintenance on your home like your lawn, irrigation and of course your water heaters. We are taught that as soon as you buy a house, you only have one HVAC system, so protect it. Water heaters are no different, you only have one. Protect it, maintain it, get the longest life out of it as you can.”
