Do you get your hot water supply from an electric water heater? Like a gas water heater, an electric water heater requires routine maintenance to keep working energy-efficiently, provide prolonged service life and ensure safe operation.
The main difference between the two types of water heaters is the heat source. Electric water heaters run on electricity while their cousins are powered by gas. The fact that electric water heaters are both electrical and plumbing appliances calls for the input of both electricians and plumbers when it is time for hot water maintenance.
