How often should I flush my hot water heater to prevent scale build up?
If you have a soft water system, flush the heater every 6 months. Otherwise, the water heater needs to be flushed every three months.
What is the average life of an electric hot water heater?
Depending on your water quality the life span could be five to seven years. Gas water heaters have a longer life span of seven to ten years.
What do I do if I have no hot water?
First, you should check the hot water heater breaker in your electrical panel and make sure it has not been tripped. If you have to reset the breaker, wait 30 to 40 minutes to see if you get hot water.
