The Importance Of Water Heater Flushing

alpha-plumbing-water-heater-flushingThere is nothing like a nice hot shower to start your day. But there’s nothing like the wake-up call you get when your shower runs cold. Here are a few reasons to consider the benefits of water heater flushing for your system.

Increased Durability 

As time passes, lime and other sediments may accumulate in your home’s water heater tank, hindering its efficiency. This can also shorten the lifespan of the unit. The good news is that flushing your water heater is a simple and effective way to prevent sediment buildup and avoid potential issues.

Reduced Noise With Water Heater Flushing

You may hear banging or crackling noises if there is buildup inside your water heater. Although the noises might go away independently, the sediment will not disappear.

Keep Your Warranty Intact 

Keeping your water heater well-maintained is essential as it’s a valuable investment. Some manufacturers include regular maintenance as part of the warranty. Check if neglecting maintenance can lead to voiding the warranty.

Increased Efficiency 

Did you know water heating can use up to 25 percent of your home’s energy? Even something as simple as sediment buildup can cause your unit to work harder, increasing energy costs. And if your unit is working too hard, it can put stress on its components and lead to expensive repairs.
