Water Heater Maintenance

Is having your water heater inspected yearly important? The answer is: yes! It’s important to have your water heater inspected and flushed yearly, especially tankless water heaters. Why is this important? Age and moisture over time can cause corrosion. What issues can moisture corrosion cause? Moisture corrosion can cause several different issues; one being water leaks. Leaks/flooding can cause further damage to your home especially if your water heater is in an attic or in another area of your home. Hot water failure as well as electrical fires can be caused by moisture corrosion. Gas water heaters should also be checked yearly to ensure proper ventilation. Proper ventilation is a must to ensure that you avoid possible carbon monoxide from entering your home. Take a look at the photos below.
