What is Hot Water Flushing and Why Might You Need It?
Any homeowner understands the need of maintaining their house on a regular basis. They understand that if they don’t keep up with general maintenance, their appliances and property will be jeopardized. They understand that preventative maintenance is not only important for keeping appliances from breaking down, but also for keeping the house safe. Flushing your water heater at least once a year is one of the routine maintenance tasks that must be followed.
If you have a tank water heater, you should flush it at least once a year
Not all types of water heaters require annual flushing, but tank water heaters do. If you don’t, you’ll probably have to pay for repairs or replacements far sooner than you would otherwise have to. Continue reading to find out why it’s so vital and how to arrange for servicing. Then call The Stanley Louis Company at for assistance.
Why is it important to cleanse your water heater?
Many homeowners associate flushing their water heater with flushing their toilet, which they most likely do on a regular basis. They could also consider various easy-to-flush plumbing fittings. It’s not as easy as pulling a lever when it comes to household and business water heaters.
Instead, if you want to properly flush out your water heater, you’ll need to hire a professional who can completely remove the water from the storage tank. After that, they’ll place a hose into the tank. To guarantee that we can remove all of the mineral buildup and other debris that has collected in your water heater tank over the previous year, the water must be emptied.
Consequences of failing to cleanse your water heater
Of course, you are not required to cleanse your water heater by legislation. So, what happens if you don’t follow through? What will happen is that these materials will accumulate at the bottom of your tank. This implies they’ll end up insulting flames or any other heating source you have. As a result, the water they’re designed to warm won’t warm as quickly or as effectively.
There’s no denying that dirt in your water heater is one of the most common sources of inefficiency, but the problem doesn’t end there. It has the potential to infiltrate into your pipes over time. Damage to your pipes, poor water pressure throughout your house or company, and finally pipe bursting are all possible outcomes.
