How Often Do Hot Water Tanks Need Maintenance?

Hot water tanks should be flushed at least once a year to prevent future issues and remove buildup that can develop over time. When water tanks are flushed, dirty water is removed and replaced with new, clean water. Without proper maintenance and cleaning their effectiveness will be reduced over time. Professional plumbers can perform the necessary maintenance needed to ensure your water heater is running efficiently and isn’t damaged during flushing.

How Do Hot Water Tanks Work?

Electric water heaters use a heating element that heats the water in the tank, and gas-powered water heaters use a gas burner to heat the water in the tank. Hot water tanks will heat and distribute water throughout the home. When hot water reaches the desired temperature, the thermostat will detect it and prevent the tank from continuing to heat and use unnecessary energy. The size of the hot water tank needed for homes will depend on the number of people using the hot water supply and the amount of hot water they use.
