Each of us take hot water heaters for granted everyday. We turn the knob and just expect our baths and showers to be warm and inviting every time. Water heaters, whether they are gas or electric, do need to be checked and maintained on a regular basis to work at their optimum level and keep that soothing warm water coming for years to come. In fact, many of our Realtors have been in Omaha and Council Bluffs homes where water heaters have been doing their job for over 30 years!

Don't let this happen to you!

The most important tip for maintaining your water heater is to simply drain some water out of the bottom periodically (every quarter) to battle hard water sediment build up which could be reducing its efficiency.
