Have you ever thought about how much it costs to keep your home’s water heated? Even if your house sits empty most of the day, your storage water heater is still using energy. It burns energy while you’re sleeping, too, and while you’re away on vacation.
If you want to get the most years and lowest energy consumption out of your hot water heater, it’s a good idea to perform regular maintenance on it. Preventive maintenance on water heaters isn’t very hard, but forgetting to do it can reduce the efficiency of the unit.
