Does Flushing a Water Heater Help?

Monday, January 16th, 2023

The word “maintenance” means two different things depending on who says it. To an HVAC or plumbing professional like us, it refers to a specific service where our team inspects, adjusts, and maintains a water heater to keep it in good shape. This can include flushing the system and resetting it.
