Our water heater is usually kept in an area that we seldom visit and we forget that water heater maintenance is an important part of keeping our New Haven home comfortable. Most of us are too young to remember what it was like to live without hot running water. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t want to find out what that was like!
Here are a few signs that it is time for Water Heater Maintenance.
— If your tank-style water heater is or approaching 10 years of age
— Rust-colored water
–Not enough hot water and/or low water pressure
–Strange water heater noises
–Water on the floor around the water heater
