For the majority of homeowners in our area, tank water heating systems are the tried and true method of heating water. It’s been this way for a very long time, since tankless (or “on-demand”) water heaters have only been around for a few decades. Since the old days, people would heat up a pot or tank of water and use that throughout the day.
Newer tank water heaters are more energy efficient and powerful. Sometimes, it can be easy to forget that it’s working in the first place. This is ultimately a good thing, because they let us focus on the important parts of life. But there’s one component of your tank water heater that shouldn’t be forgotten about. And if you do forget about it, you might need a new water heater installation in Castle Rock, CO. We’re, of course, talking about the sacrificial anode rod!
