Have you had your hot water heater flushed this year? If not, it’s time to schedule service with Rapid Repair Experts. Here are our top 3 reasons why you should flush your water heater.
Lower energy bills in Raleigh
Over time, sediment and minerals accumulate at the bottom of your water heater. Why is this a problem? Well, this layer of sediment creates a barrier between the water and the heating element. Therefore, the heating element has to work much harder in order to heat the water. This drastically lowers the unit’s efficiency. Flushing the water heater removes these particles from the unit, increasing its efficiency and lowering your monthly energy bills. Save money by getting your equipment flushed with Rapid Repair Experts.
No more cold showers
In addition to saving you money, flushing provides more hot water for your home. The more sediment that deposits in the tank, the less space there is for hot water in the unit. This also makes it more difficult for the heating element to heat the water. So, if your showers never seem to get hot enough, it may be time to flush. Call Rapid Repair Experts today to reclaim your hot showers.
Extend water heater lifespan
A quick call to Rapid Repair Experts can save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on replacement costs. Just like your HVAC system or plumbing, your water heater needs periodic maintenance in order to stay in good shape. Too much sediment can cause the tank to repeatedly overheat, which can damage components. And those deposits are corrosive to the tank, and can actually allow bacteria to grow inside the unit. Flush your tank to keep your unit running smoothly and safely for years to come.
