Bare Woman Reacting While Taking Cold Shower

No one likes to wake up to a cold shower, especially as temperatures drop in Maryland. Your hot water heater is on the fritz and like most home appliances you don’t realize you need it until it stops working.  Proper maintenance to your hot water heater is crucial to its daily operation.

Other tell-tale signs that your hot water heater is in need of maintenance is its odor, taste and color.  If your tap water smells and tastes bad, your hot water heater is likely the culprit.  Sediment build up is the cause.  Your hot water heater needs to be flushed out on a regular annual basis by a professional.

When the hot water heating system is flushed, its pressure value should also be checked.  A faulty relief pressure valve could result in flooding.  And in the most extreme cases the appliance could potentially explode.

Hot water heater maintenance is NOT akin to changing an air filter in your home and is therefore a difficult task for a home do-it-yourselfer.
