  • Drain or flush your water heater each year. This helps it perform better and also helps you determine if there is any sediment buildup.
  • Schedule a complete inspection each year, too. Let a professional make sure that everything is working the way that it should be. This is the perfect time to make minor adjustments or repairs that will help your system perform better.
