Is There Any Yearly Tankless Water Heater Maintenance That Needs Done Annually?

There is annual tankless water heater maintenance that has to be done on tankless water heaters due to the design and how they work.  A tankless water heater reduces the pipe size inside to slow the water down so that it can "instantaneously" heat it.  This causes scaling due to the minerals in the water that would in a tank type water heater settle to the bottom of the tank to stick to the sides of the piping inside the tankless water heater.  After a while that small pipe continues to get smaller, that is why every year they need to be de-scaled and the filters cleaned on them.  Without this these tankless water heaters would quit working.  Most tankless water heater manufacturers recommend that if you are going to install a tankless water heater then you should install a water softener ahead of it.  This will help with scaling and other buildup issues inside your tankless water heater.  If you have questions or would like to get an estimate for a new tankless water heater or an demand water heaters please give us a call and we will schedule one of our plumbers to come out and explain everything to you and work up an estimate for your new tankless water heater.  If you are looking to get away from the maintenance of a tankless water heater but want the performance and efficiency tankless water heater you might want to check out our hybrid water heaters.   A water softener also helps out a lot by removing those hard water minerals before they can even enter the tankless water heater.  

There are so many choices you might say, what should you do?

What we advise is that you get a plumbing professional over to your home or office to examine exactly what you want to accomplish and what your end goal is and they can figure out the best water heater for your situation and what the best type of water heater to suit your needs would be.  When you are ready to discuss Tankless water heaters give us a call and we will get a Technician specialized in water heaters over to your home or office and get you the solution you are looking for.
