Tankless water heaters provide an excellent upgrade for your home. These water heaters do not have as many moving parts as more traditional heaters, which helps cut down on potential repair needs while improving energy efficiency and extending the life of the device. However, should a problem come up with tankless heaters in your home, you need to bring in the pros at Airco Service Inc. to inspect the appliance, identify the issue and repair it as soon as possible.
Hard Water Problems
Tankless water heaters (also known as on-demand water heaters) are designed to last several decades. Due to this, one of the biggest issues you’ll likely face with the hardware is hard water build up. When minerals start to build up within the plumbing of the device, it can cause some problems with how water is able to run through the system, not to mention the actual temperature of the water. Because water does not sit in the water tank for very long, this corrosion is less likely to happen inside the heater than in the plumbing both before and after the setup. Regardless of where the hard water mineral buildup occurs though, it can be repaired and corrected.
One of the benefits of having a tankless heater is the on-demand feature. Of course, this also can lead it to being overused in a short amount of time. The heaters built within the tank become hot quickly, which means the hardware needs to be cooled and vented properly. If not, it leads to combustion problems with the tank.
Upgrading your home to include tankless water heaters is a fantastic investment opportunity. Tankless heaters cut down significantly on energy consumption, which saves you money. It also reduces your water usage as you no longer need to wait for the water to heat up, which again saves you money on every single energy bill. Tankless heaters can also improve your home’s value and make it more marketable to potential home buyers. Due to this, if you have any kind of problems with your tankless heaters, it is necessary to bring in a professional with knowledge and experience on making these kinds of repairs. That is exactly what you receive with Airco Service Inc, so make sure to reach out and contact us for any and all tankless water heater questions.
