Routine Maintenance On Tankless Water Heaters

Regular maintenance on tankless water heaters is essential for keeping the unit running efficiently and at peak performance. Without regular maintenance, it's likely that the heater will experience a decrease in efficiency, as well as an increased likelihood of malfunctions or breakdowns.


The exact schedule of routine maintenance depends on several factors, such as how often the unit is used and any environmental conditions present (such as hard water). Generally speaking, however, it's recommended to inspect the heater at least once per year. During this inspection, you should check for signs of corrosion or blockages in the pipes and connections; clean out sediment build-up from inside the heat exchanger; flush the system to remove any lime scale deposits; and check the pressure relief valve for proper operation.


If you're uncomfortable working on your tankless water heater yourself, it's recommended to contact a licensed professional to do the work. While there may be an additional cost involved, it's more than worth it when you consider the potential risks associated with improper maintenance or repair. Professional service technicians will be able to identify any problems and make sure that your tankless water heater is running as efficiently as possible.


Additionally, if you notice any strange noises coming from the unit, or if your hot water supply suddenly drops off, these are signs that something may be wrong with your unit and should be inspected immediately by a qualified technician. Regular maintenance of your tankless water heater is essential for ensuring its reliable performance and extending its lifespan. Keep these tips in mind to keep your unit running optimally for years to come!
