Summer officially ends in just a few days, and with the cool weather of fall comes the need to prepare your home for winter. This should include a close look at your water heater, including performing some easy maintenance to help it perform at its best.
Sediment can build up on the bottom of the water heater if you aren’t careful, which in turn can make it more difficult (and expensive) to heat your water. Not only can that raise your monthly bills, but it can lead to bigger problems like frozen pipes in the winter. Flushing the water heater is a simple and easy way to help prevent that from occurring.
