What You Need to Know About Tankless Water Heater Service
Tankless water heater systems are susceptible to the same major issue that their counterparts are, namely mineral build up. This is especially pronounced in homes with hard water. The mineral buildup that accumulates can limit your tankless water heater’s output and shorten its lifespan. Depending on how hard your water is, flushing the system once or twice a year can go a long way toward keeping your water heater in great condition.
You should also regularly check the input filter in your system. Debris can interrupt water flow. You can actually do this yourself by turning off the cold water supply. Then relieve the hot pressure. Remove the filter and clear any obstructions you find.
If you do have hot water, consider adding adding water softener to your system. Our expert technicians can assist with installing a water softener, a filtration system for your home, and your tankless water heater.
The “cold sandwich” effect happens when a water heater lets out a short burst of cold water during hot water usage. This is a normal part of tankless heaters, not a sign that your unit needs service. Some brands and models have been specially designed to minimize this effect.
In colder weather, you may notice white smoke coming from the exhaust. Again, this is normal; it’s a result of the temperature difference between the exhaust and the air.
Setting your water temperature too high can actually have a limiting effect on your hot water supply. For example, a shower may be turned too far to the cold side, which means that it isn’t drawing enough hot water to keep the heater on steadily.
