Water heaters are important parts of our home infrastructure. If you own a home that has a water heater you must make sure that you are checking up on it to make sure that it works. In this article, we are going to look at some important water heater maintenance that everyone should know.
Before you start our water heater maintenance there are a few tools that you want to make sure you have. You want to have a water hose, a bucket, and a socket wrench.
Once you have your tools ready make sure that you disconnect your water heater so that you can make your checks.
An easy check that you can make is for leaks. Look around the entire tank, and give special attention to the areas that connect to pipes or valves. If you don’t see any leaks you can move on to the next checks.
Airflow is another thing that you need to check for. Air is brought into the tank at the bottom of the tank. You want to make sure that the bottom of your tank is cleaned of any dust that may be blocking it.
Overall, these were a couple of checks that you should be doing on your water heater. If you need repairs it would be best to call a professional.
