Tankless water heater repair and service

A tankless water heater has the benefit of a long life span, about 20 years. However if you want to get 20 years out of your tankless water heater regular maintenance is needed. To keep your tankless water heater in tip top shape you need to make sure to regularly remove and clean the intake screen. Additionally you need to regularly have the tankless water heater flushed and cleaned. Make sure that you never use chemicals to clean out your water heater. The water in a tankless heater is considered drinking water and should never be contaminated with toxic chemicals. Even with a thorough flush chemical can stay in you pipes if used. Generally a vinegar solution is used to clean out the scale and lime deposits in a tankless heater. Malcolm Rooter is a certified and licensed for all your tankless water heater repairs and services.

Some of the most common issues with a tankless water heater are corrosion, mineral deposits and overload. Corrosion is significantly less of a problem with tankless heater but can occur over time especially if there is condensation build up. Mineral deposits are a problem for many American's. Much of America has hard water which isn't a problem to drink but is hard on all appliances. You may need to consider installing an electric descaler to prevent any mineral deposit build up. However, regular maintenance should also help with this issue.

Lastly there is the issue of overload. If your tankless water heater was installed by a professional this should not be an issue however it often is. If you water heater is shutting off from trying to preform simply tasks like run a load of dishes and a load of laundry you may need to consider running dual tankless water heaters or exploring other options.
