You need your water heater to work efficiently, and it usually does. But when things go wrong, it leaves you without hot water & usually at the worst time possible. It can also mean a flooded room if it bursts or develops a leak. Cascade Energy Services provides hot water heater repair service & installation in Mercer Island. We have some great tips on maintaining your water heater.
You can do certain things to assist your hot water tank, and you only need to do them once. Set your temperature at a moderate heat so that no one gets scalded, and add insulation to your heater. You should have the tank flushed, and the anode rod checked annually. When you insulate the tank, you can significantly reduce heat loss and save on water heating bills. When you flush your tank, you get rid of sediment that can corrode your tanks.
Set the Temperature
Check to see what you have your temperature set at on the water heater. 120 degrees is a good choice. You can usually adjust the setting with a screwdriver. You can save up to 5% in energy costs for every 10 degrees you lower the setting.
