  1. Inspect the tank for accumulated sediment – Sediment decreases efficiency and can clog water lines and fixtures.
  2. Check the condition of the anode rod – The anode rod protects your water heater tank and other components from rusting. Replacing corroded anode rods can significantly extend the life or your water heater
  3. Check for proper flame and gas venting (gas models) – Dangerous carbon monoxide can build up in your home, making your family ill. It can even be lethal.
  4. Check the condition of the heating element (electric models) – Elements with calcium buildup or that are damaged or corroded use excessive electricity
  5. Check the pressure relief valve’s operation – Over pressurized tanks can rupture or explode
  6. Check thermostat – Thermostats are important for energy efficiency and they protect your family from the danger of scalding water
