Water Heater Loss Prevention and Maintenance Tips
- Have a professional plumbing inspection of the anode rod at least once every two years and annually after the warranty expires. The rod will eventually corrode and leave the tank vulnerable to damage.
- Remove sediment by flushing the tank every six months. Sediment will build up faster in areas with hard water.
Tankless Versus Tank
You may want to consider purchasing a tankless water heater. Over the years they have become more sophisticated, and some models even can tell you via a smartphone when it needs maintenance. You’ll also save between twenty-seven and fifty percent on fuel costs compares to tank-type heaters.
