Why Clean The Water Heater?
Preventative maintenance will result in energy & cost savings and will extend the life of your water heater.
How to Clean The Water Heater?
Consider hiring a plumbing company to do semi-annual service to all of your water systems. This includes the water heater as well as any major plumbing systems. Many offer plans that do HVAC and plumbing services as a package deal and can be quite affordable when priced that way.
Generally, the things a certified plumber will do to maintain it:
- Cleaning out your dirty burner chamber because it can cause a fire and can make burning less efficient.
- Flushing your tank to rid it of any sediment that may have collected at the bottom and is impeding heating efficiency.
- Testing the thermostat and pressure release valves to make sure they are operating correctly.
