Keep Your Water Heater Healthy with Yearly Flushes and Maintenance

It’s recommended that you go to the doctor once a year for a check-up. The doctor gives you a flu shot, checks your blood pressure, and makes sure you’re healthy. If you’re not healthy, then the doctor will give you medicine. The yearly check-up is a way that you maintain your health and make sure you live a long, healthy life.

Annual check-ups are important to your health, but they’re also important to the health of your water heater. Just like your annual check-up, annual maintenance on your water heater is recommended to insure it lasts a long time.

Annual Water Heater Flush and Fill

Over time, sediment builds up in the bottom of the tank and makes it harder for your water heater to heat the water, which can waste energy. If not taken care of, the sediment can eventually build up enough that it comes out of your faucets. It’s recommended that you have a routine maintenance flush done on your water heater once a year.

Flushing your water heater is like giving it medicine. Flushing it clears out the sediment build-up inside the tank, much like antibiotics clear out an infection in your body. After the flush, the tank is refilled, and the water and surface are clean again.
