What we check when doing a Water Heater Tune-Up

  During a water heater tune – up we drain the water heater to remove any sediment build up on the bottom of your water heater.  This will prolong the life of your tank and increase it’s efficiency.  We check the safety relief valves for proper operation and also do a visual inspection of the overall condition of the water heater.
