Why You Should Service Your Tankless Water Heater Every Year


Tankless water heaters are an energy-efficient alternative to conventional storage tank units. These systems are innovative in that hot water does not have to sit around in a large tank throughout the day. This means they are much smaller in size, and they don’t waste energy heating water you only really need a handful of times in a day. Installing one of these systems is a great step towards energy efficiency in your home, but annual tankless water heater maintenance may be just as important.

De-scaling the system each year improves performance and efficiency

The most important reason to schedule a tune-up of your tankless water heater each year is to flush out the system. Scale can build up on the heat exchanger of your tankless unit, the part responsible for heating up the water as it passes through. Minerals like calcium and magnesium can coat the heat exchanger, greatly reducing the efficiency of the system and its ability to keep water hot, as well as its lifespan.

Most experts recommend flushing out the unit about once a year. Removing scale from the system involves the use of pumps, cleaning solutions, and some knowledge of the way plumbing systems are put together. This probably isn’t something you want to deal with yourself, and professional service is the way to go if you want it done right.

Additional Benefits of Annual Water Heater Maintenance

When you call a professional technician to perform tankless water heater maintenance each year, the technician should do more than just flush out the tank. While this is perhaps one of the most important steps, your technician will also tune up additional parts if necessary. They will check the temperature settings and other vital components to make sure that everything works well and that the system is in good enough condition to run smoothly for another year.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.
