Tips to help you maintain your home Water Heater:

(1) Set the temperature: The U.S. Department of Energy recommends setting the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to save energy and prevent scalding.

(2) Insulate your water heater: Wrapping your water heater in an insulation blanket can help keep the heat in and lower your energy bill.

(3) Drain the tank: Over time, sediment can build up in the bottom of the tank, which can reduce the efficiency of the heater. To remove the sediment, you can drain a few gallons of water from the tank every few months.

(4) Check the pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valve is a safety feature that helps prevent the tank from overheating. It’s important to test the valve every year to make sure it’s working properly.

(5) Replace the anode rod: The anode rod is a sacrificial rod that helps protect the tank from corrosion. It should be replaced every 3-5 years, depending on the water quality in your area.

(6) Flush the tank: Flushing the tank can help remove any sediment that has accumulated over time. You can hire a professional to do this or do it yourself by attaching a hose to the drain valve and opening the valve to let the water flow out.

(7) Inspect the tank: Look for any signs of rust or other damage to the tank. If you notice any issues, it’s a good idea to have a professional check it out.
