Water Heater MaintenanceMaintaining your water heater – keeping it healthy throughout the year – is easy to do. The pros at Western Heating & Air suggest these tips that you can do yourself to keep your water heater in good working order.

Periodically Drain Your Water Heater

Your water heater is constantly heating warm water for your home’s use, whether that’s for a shower or for an appliance. As such, it’s constantly working water through its system that can get dirty from standing. After turning off your heater, drain the water from the tank. There is a spot underneath the heater itself where you can actually attach a hose for the draining.

After Draining, Allow a Water Cycle to Go Through

You’re initially draining your water heater because sediment and deposits may have collected in the tank. To ensure that all of this material exits the tank, run a full cycle of water through it while you have the drainage hose connected. This ensures, as best as possible, that your water heater tank is getting thoroughly cleaned out.

Refill the Tank

Refill your tank with new water and then turn it back on. This is clean water that will give your water heater and tank a better performance in the long run. Again, the sediment and buildup is not good to let sit in your tank; in fact, it can lead to popping noises, if you don’t drain it periodically.

A Newly-Filled Water Heater is a Happy Water Heater

Your tank needs the occasional flush to get the standing and sediment-filled water out and get the good, clean water in. Beyond these do-it-yourself maintenance tricks, if there’s anything with your water heater that you’re not comfortable doing, call the Western team for service with care!
