You may be very familiar with what’s needed to keep your car running smoothly and extend its life. It’s a complex machine and helps you in your everyday life, so having it running properly is extremely important. Your water heater is quite similar. It needs routine maintenance, and just like the diagnostics on your car, your water heater can let you know when it’s time for service so it keeps running in optimal condition. You wouldn’t want to be without hot water, just like you wouldn’t want to be without a car.

You check your oil and schedule an oil change for your car, similarly you can check your service alerts and schedule a flush of your water heater. You might be familiar with car parts and maintenance, but now is the time to have a crash course on how to take care of your water heater.
