FAQs about Water Heater Maintenance

Why do water heaters need to be maintained?

Over time, the minerals in tap water can build up inside your water heater, creating sediment that can reduce your water heater’s efficiency and clog your water lines. To get rid of as much of this sediment as possible, it’s important to flush your water heater at least once a year. This piece of maintenance can extend the life of your water heater, enhance its performance, and help you avoid having to replace it prematurely.

How often should I flush my water heater?

Recommended maintenance cycles will vary depending on the type of water heater you have and how much demand is placed upon it. For most people with a traditional tank water heater, annual maintenance should be fine. However, if you have a large family – meaning more hot showers, more laundry, more dishes, etc. – it will be useful to schedule a tune-up twice a year.
