Why You Should Flush Your Water Heater Every Year

Benefits of Flushing Your Water Heater

Water Heater Maintenance

Most manufacturers of water heaters recommend having your water heater flushed once a year to keep it operating at maximum efficiency. The importance of flushing your water heater every year is due to sediment in the system that tends to build up in the bottom of your water heater’s tank. This buildup can impede the proper operation of your water heater and hamper its performance.

Similar to changing the oil in your automobile, flushing your water heater is considered regular maintenance which helps extend the life of your water heater and keep it running at maximum performance levels. When there is a buildup of sediment in your tank, your water heater must work harder to heat the water in the tank. This means undue stress on the system, and a bigger drain on available energy, and that means higher energy bills or unnecessary water heater repairs.
