How To Maintain Your Water Heater

While your water heater needs professional attention once a year, you should maintain it on your own between visits. Here’s how to get the most from your water heater:

  • Test the temperature and pressure relief (TPR) valve for proper operation every couple of months. If it doesn’t open and close freely, have it replaced.
  • Drain several gallons of water from the tank every six months to slow the buildup of minerals that can lead to performance issues.
  • Lower the temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit from the standard 140 degrees. This increases efficiency and reduces the risk of being scalded at the tap. (Just don’t go below 120 degrees or you risk microbial growth in the tank.)

What Does a Professional Water Heater Tune-Up Include?

Performing maintenance tasks yourself is a good starting point, but you should also hire a professional once a year to carry out a more in-depth water heater tune-up. Here’s what we’ll do in a professional water heater maintenance visit:

  • Flush the tank thoroughly to remove all sediment buildup.
  • Check the pilot light, if applicable.
  • Inspect the heating elements on electric models.
  • Inspect the burners and flue on gas models.
  • Test the thermostat.
  • Insulate the tank and incoming/outgoing water pipes at the homeowner’s request. This reduces standby heat loss, helps water heat up faster at the tap, and increases efficiency.
  • Check for a corroded anode rod and replace it as necessary.
  • Replace the TPR valve when needed.
  • Answer any questions you have about using your water heater efficiently.
