Water Heather Maintenance Tips for your New Mexico Home

5/27/2022 (Permalink)

A water heater accounts for about 18% of the energy used in a modern home.

As a result, a water heater is one of your home's most critical and costly appliances. Proper water heater maintenance is necessary to guarantee that it continues to function properly and does not cost you too much. Checking on your water heater in the spring is an excellent idea. Water damage can occur quickly, so it's crucial to ensure sure it's in good operating order.

Here are some tips to keep your water heater running at peak performance.

  • To determine if your anode rod needs to be replaced, inspect it every two years or if the warranty has ended every year.
  • Attach a garden hose to the valve at the base of the water heater tank every six months to remove sediment. Please turn off the electricity and run the hot water until it cools down for safety.
  • A plumbing specialist should perform a yearly check of the shut-off valve and all piping. Broken valves, loose or moist joints, and rust are signs that more severe harm is on the way.
  • Turn the temperature down to 1there'sre’s no reason to keep your water heater above it. At that temperature, you can do everything you n ed. But, of course, keeping your water heater hotter can cause it to break down much faster.
