What to Do to Maintain Your Hot Water Heater
Test the Temperature Pressure Relief Valve
Discharge the valve quickly two or three times once per year to ensure it does not leak.
Adjust to 120 Degrees
Setting the thermostat to 120° F will help you save on utility bills and avoid any scalding risks.
Draining about a quarter of the tank a few times a year can help remove sediment and debris, helping extend its lifespan.
