Get Your Tankless Water Heater Repaired
Tankless water heaters are a great way to reduce your energy costs in a home, especially since water heating accounts for about 20 percent of the average family’s home energy costs.
These on-demand heaters have long lifespans, longer than your standard water heater tank, and many of the parts are easily replaceable. When properly cared for, and given routine maintenance, your water heater can last you 20 years.
When your tankless water heater starts acting up, needs repairs, or worse, not working at all, call Worcester Plumber Service. Our expert technicians can repair your water heater fast. Call us at 508-434-4005 or fill out the form and request a quote.
Beware These Pitfalls with Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters are similar to traditional models in that they are also susceptible to one major peril: mineral buildup. Hard water leaves mineral deposits that accumulate and create scale. If you do not have regular maintenance done on your heater (once or twice a year), the scale can overload the system.
When that happens, it creates a lockout that will shut down your water heater until it is flushed out and the mineral deposits removed. A water softener in your home can help reduce hard water problems.
If you are having other water flow problems, check the inlet filter. Make sure there is no debris that could restrict how water passes through the filter.
If your hot water heater is not working at all, make sure that it is actually on. Look for a standby light that comes on. If this is not on, check that the unit hasn’t tripped the circuit breaker.
If you have a gas-powered tankless water heater, make sure the gas supply line is sufficiently large to accommodate your heater. Too small a line will limit your supply of hot water. Make sure the gas line is large enough to accommodate the maximum BTU per hour rating.
You may be tempted to set your water temperature very high. However, this can actually backfire because when the water is too hot, the water heater cannot continuously produce hot water, which leads to spotty supplies, at best.
Our technicians can identify and then correct the problems with your tankless water heater. With regular care and repairs done by qualified experts, your water heater will be good as new, and ready to continue making hot water for your family for years to come.
