A tankless water heater looks and functions differently than the traditional water heater. Because of this, it requires a different type of care to maintain its optimum condition. The good thing about tankless water heater is that it very easy to maintain so long as you follow the advice of the manufacturer or your technician. Here are some pointers to remember when you have a tankless water heater installed in your home or workplace:
- Regularly flush the unit to remove mineral deposits that have built up over the months. These deposits will not serve any good to your machine so make sure that you get them off your unit every month. If you intend to do this on your own, you can pump two to three gallons of white vinegar or any other low-grade acid into your machine. However, we strongly suggest that you ask the help of a professional to handle this job.
- If you have hard water, it is probably time that you use water softener. Hard water can cause the abovementioned mineral deposits as well as lime scale buildup and cause erosion. Consult a plumber to check on your type of water.
- Check the electric wiring of your water heater. Make sure that they are free from chipping. If you find that a portion has been chipped, use an electric tape to cover the area.
- Finally, have a plumbing company like perform annual maintenance check up on your tankless water heater. This is particularly important because only certified technicians who know the ins and outs of your machine can accurately pinpoint any problem. They will be able to repair your heater or replace it if needed.
