Maintain your water heater in only 3 steps

Increasing your water heater's service life and, providing energy savings!

The maintenance of an electric water heater is within everyone's reach providing you follow the manufacturer's guidelines. However, you are free to ask your installer for a biennial maintenance contract if possible. It is highly recommended for thermodynamic and solar water heaters.

Regardless of the type of technology, three operations must be carried out regularly:

 

Step 1 : Operate the pressure relief valve's lever of draining

Drain your water heater tank (or ask a professional to do it) at least every two years in areas with hard water. This action allows to get rid of scale deposits on the heating element. Caution: do it by hand without abrasives nor chemicals. Do not forget to change the gasket when reassembling.
