With the coronavirus keeping us at home much more than usual right now, it’s more important than ever to keep your home comfort equipment working efficiently and reliably. One of the most important and often overlooked pieces of home comfort equipment in your Connecticut home is your water heater.
If you have a conventional water heater (one that has a storage tank), a key to keeping it running well is preventing sediment build-up. Sediment, which looks like sand or gravel, forms from minerals contained in your water supply; when it gathers at the bottom of your tank or on your water heater’s heating element, it can diminish energy efficiency and clog the tank’s drain valve, which can be a safety hazard.
The good news is that sediment build-up is easy to control with periodic flushing of your storage tank.
What you’ll need:
Of course, an occasional flush isn’t the only maintenance you’ll need for your water heater – you’ll also need professional water heater maintenance about every two years (which you can get as part of our Home Comfort Membership’s Water Heater Inspection Plan). If your water heater is due or overdue for a service visit, contact us today – before your water heater fails when you need it most.
