As everyone is in the full swing of spring cleaning, the PlumbV team would like to remind our clients to use this motivation to tackle less sought-after tasks, like a water heater flush.
Water heaters, both tank and tankless, work hard on a daily basis to provide your home with warm water for showers, cooking, and cleaning. It is recommended to have your water heater flushed on an annual basis. Yes, that’s right, this is a cleaning task that should happen every year to keep your water heater running at optimal capacity!
Throughout the year, water heaters can build up with a variety of different things such as mineral buildup, dirt, and sediment. When these particles get into your water heater, it jeopardizes its ability to heat water quickly which then leads to issues like utilizing more energy and increasing your utility bills.
A water heater flush provides many benefits:
A clean water heater will take less energy to produce hot water. A water heater flush will be more energy efficient.
Lower Heating Bills
Optimizing your water heater will reduce the amount of energy used. A water heater flush can reduce your utility bills.
No more waiting for the water to turn hot for your shower! A water heater flush helps the appliance heat the water faster.
Aside from cleaning out the buildup in your water heater, a water heater flush is also a great opportunity for an expert to assess the state of your water heater. Faulty parts are a leading cause of water heater issues, so if we’re able to perform maintenance or replace critical parts before they break, we can help save you time, money, and stress.
