Tankless water heaters need regular maintenance, just like the other water appliances in your home. Regular maintenance guarantees that a tankless water heater is running efficiently and that there are no minor issues that could turn into big problems that require expensive repairs. Tankless water heaters that receive regular maintenance will also last longer. In fact, hot water on-demand systems that are regularly maintained and repaired can last up to 30 years or more. That’s more than double the life of a traditional hot water tank!
How often should tankless water heaters be serviced?
If your hot water on-demand system was properly installed by a professional tankless water heater installation company, you shouldn't require repairs or maintenance very often.
Most tankless water heaters in Edmonton should be serviced at least once per year. However, if you have hard water, your system should be serviced more often. Sediment build-up, due to hard water, can cause many issues with your tankless water heater. To prevent the build-up of scale (which can result in poor performance and increased maintenance needs), the system should be flushed every 6 to 9 months or so.
To ensure you are maximizing your return on investment, always hire an experienced Edmonton plumber to complete tankless water heater repairs and maintenance.
