which water heater

I have a richmond natural gas 40 gallon water heater in my house that is 14 years old. it is giving me no problems except that it gurgles when it is heating and I assume that being on a well with no water softener, the sediment build up is getting pretty deep in the tank. I am trying to decide whether to replace it with the same richmond from menards or go to an ao smith. they are both cheaper 6 year warranty heaters, but I see on the internet that the ao smith has problems with the screens plugging on the burner, I have had no problems at all with the richmond. which heater do you suggest or should I leave the heater until it dies? thanks for any advice.

How often do you flush the heater out?
