Why You Need Your Water Heater Flushed RegularlyYou know that every 3,000 miles, it’s time to get your car’s oil changed. Your home’s water heater works the same way. Angie’s List recommends you schedule an appointment to flush your water heater annually.

Energy Conservation

Saving energy is not just about saving money; it’s also about preserving our environment. When minerals build up in your water heater, your system works harder and uses more energy than necessary to heat your home’s water. Houston-area water tested at number 32 out of 100 U.S. cities for mineral content found in its water, with relatively high levels of sodium, magnesium, and calcium. A water heater flush can remove harmful buildup due to:

  • Sediment
  • Minerals
  • Calcium
  • Lime
  • Rust

How a Flush Works

Your plumbing service professional will attach a hose to your water tank that empties safely into a nearby drain. The process cleans out tank sediment buildup and mineral deposits, making your water heater more energy efficient. Your water heater’s lifespan will improve with this annual service, and while there, your service technician will clean and inspect attached hardware, rods, and ventilation.
