Water heater flush / maintenance / descaling
A well-maintained water heater rarely needs attention, which is part of the problem in keeping up with the maintenance. It can be easy to forget the water heater is even there because it keeps providing hot water when you need it, reliably and well. What’s to think about?
To make sure it keeps up on delivering hot water to your home dependably it’s important that you let a professional take a look at your system from time-to-time. While it’s providing you with hot water each day, it’s also creating a build-up of silt and lime scale. By scheduling regular water heater flushes you can ensure that the build-up never becomes problematic, and your water heater continues to do its job to perfection over its long lifetime.
How often you should get your water heater flushed? Different people have different recommendations for this. Bob Villa suggests once a year, while Angie’s List recommends it be done more often. In part, it’s dependent on specific circumstances. If your water is very hard, you might find that build-up happens more quickly. When your water heater tank is flushed, all of the water is removed and then new water replaces the old; this cleans out the build-up and particulates that may have gathered. If your water has a particularly high lime content then it’s a good idea to also have your tank descaled regularly.
By having your water tank flushed by the professional team at HSE Home Comfort, you can be assured that we will conduct thorough check-ups to make sure that your system is running at full capacity, and will let you know if your tank needs additional maintenance. That way you can rest assured that you can go on enjoying hot water without ever having to give much thought to where it comes from.
