December Maintenance Tip

With winter here, make sure your water heater is in proper working condition. It’s recommended to have the heater checked annually. Here are a few tips to keep your heating system in top working order:

  • Check your water heater for signs of leaking and rust.
  • Drain the water tank and refill to remove sediment.
  • Be sure that the pressure relief valve has a discharge pipe that extends to the floor. If this valve ever leaks or drips, call a plumber and under no circumstances should you ever block this valve off!

Lastly, the time change in the fall and spring always serve as a good reminder to change the batteries in your smoke detector.
