Some Like It Hot! Maintaining Your Water Heater

Some Like It Hot! Maintaining Your Water Heater

 

I bet most folks will agree with me that here’s nothing better than a hot shower first thing in the morning (though my other half prefers a warm bath). When you’re unexpectedly hit with a cold shower, it can be a rude awakening. Did you know that just like your AC or fridge, your water heater needs love too?

You might not always realize it but water has sediment suspended in it, and as the water sits in your water heater these particles will often settle to the bottom of the tank. That sediment can cause damage to the floor of your water heater. Most water heaters should be drained and cleaned at least once a year. Next time you have your semi-annual HVAC checkup, ask them to show you how!
