Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

In addition to installing tankless water heater systems, Option One Plumbing also offers tankless water heater maintenance and repairs. Tankless water heaters, also called on-demand water heaters, have a lot to offer, with improved energy efficiency and compact size compared to standard tank models. However, they do require routine maintenance and occasional repairs to make sure they are working at peak efficiency.

Scale Buildup

One of the most important maintenance requirements is making sure your tankless water heater's heat exchange elements are free of scale buildup, which may cause your water heater to run longer burn cycles, eventually straining the system and shortening its lifespan. One of the biggest advantages of tankless heaters is they can last up to twenty years or more, which is about twice the lifespan of an average tank water heater, but only if they are maintained!

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

To remove this scale buildup, Option One Plumbing tankless water heater repair experts will flush your system and remove the mineral deposits. This should be done at least once every year, or sometimes more often depending on the level of buildup in your system.

If you want your tankless water heater to continue producing hot water for the next two decades or even longer, the most important thing you can do is have it serviced regularly. Unfortunately, many homeowners skip this and end up requiring repair services.

What Are Some of the Common Effects of Traditional Water Heaters

If your tankless water heater is not performing as it should, turn to Option One Plumbing to troubleshoot the problem and fix it promptly. There are several potential causes of any issues you may be having.

We often encounter tankless water heater units that were improperly installed by the original plumber. Common issues include an undersized gas supply line or improper venting. There may also be cross flow somewhere, which means a connection somewhere between the hot and cold water. This may be as simple as a worn-out seal. If you are having temperature fluctuations, there may be an incorrectly installed check valve, or the heater temperature may be set too high. You may even be experiencing water flow issues that could be the result of a filter that needs to be replaced.

Turn to the professional tankless water heater repair experts at Option One Plumbing to get to the bottom of any issues you may be having with your tankless unit. Our technicians will quickly pinpoint the source of the problem and fix it properly the first time. We also offer regular maintenance services to ensure your tankless water heater lasts as long as possible!
