Savvy homeowners know that regular maintenance can payoff in big savings by preventing little problems from growing in to large expensive problems. But many people neglect maintenance and tuneup for their home’s hot water heater and over time certain factors affect the performance and safety features on tank style water heaters.

Regular maintenance ensures your water heaters safety mechanisms are functioning correctly and protecting your home and family. Nearly every day someone is injured by a flammable vapor explosion from the burner on a water heater igniting material too close to the flame source. Faulty hot water heaters can also emit carbon monoxide which is dangerous or deadly to people in your home. Also the contents of your tank style water heater is under pressure. If the safety valve that reduces interior tank pressure fails at the wrong time your water can literally explode with enough force to blow through walls for floors. Another safety issues is the integrity of the tank itself, rust can cause small leaks that eventually break open and can flood your home with gallons of damaging water.
