If your home uses a tank water heater, it’s important to flush it out at least once a year. Small particles, dirt and other sediment collects at the bottom of your water heater throughout the year, and these things can have a dramatic effect on your unit’s overall efficiency. And this task is easy enough to perform that you can do it yourself! Check your manual for specific instructions, but the process is as simple as flushing water through the drain valve to clean everything out.
