In a world fraught with instant gratification, tankless water heaters are gaining in popularity. If you have one in your home, or you’re considering one, Sensible Heating & Cooling wants to help you flush away any maintenance uncertainty by setting you up for a successful and long-term alliance up of to 20 years.
For starters, tankless water heaters are a notable compliment for homes using natural gas to heat water, and are perfect for users who aren’t routinely calling upon hot water for simultaneous uses. But while the system for providing an instantaneous flow of on-demand warm water appears to be simple and straightforward, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
One of the most important elements of the system is the heat exchanger. It’s through this narrow passage water flows from your home’s potable supply, is heated and makes it way to the requesting valve. Its also through this passage mineral deposits, such as lime and calcium, can build up causing blockage and preventing normal operation.
Its for this very reason tankless water heater manufactures recommend annual cleaning and maintenance of the unit, including flushing, to ensure your system runs as it should and heating water efficiently. Despite most modern water heaters equipped with sensors to notify users of detectable lime scale, the safest and most effective way to protect your investment and care for your system is to enlist a heating and cooling professional for tankless water heater maintenance.
