Tankless Water Heater Maintenance
No matter what type of water heater you have, they all require some kind of maintenance and yearly inspection – tankless water heaters included. Even though they seem to be smaller and more reliable at times, they are as likely to break without maintenance as your tank. NCT Plumbing provides tankless water heater maintenance in the Fort Worth Texas area. Let’s take a look at this service and a couple of questions! A reminder too that if you’re an Emerald Club member, we have you covered!
Tip: It’s always a good idea to look up your water heater online and get it registered as soon as possible. While you’re there you can also find information about the manufacturer’s warranty. That information can be helpful for our team!
Q. What Maintenance Does My Tankless Water Heater Need?
A. Here are some important things that a qualified technician should check annually:
1. Check venting system and air intake for blockages or debris
2. Check the condensate trap to be sure condensate is draining properly and per local code requirements
3. Inspection of the burner assembly
4. Clean out water filter screen
5. Flush or descale you water heater as needed depending on water quality
Q. Does My Tankless Water Heater Need To Be Flushed?
A. Technically speaking, a tankless unit needs to be “descaled”. Descaling your unit will improve and extend the life of the unit. This process can take up to 45 minutes per heater. A certain type of vinegar solution suggested by the manufacturer is used to keep the heat exchanger clear of hard water build up.
Q. What Do I Do With Code Errors On My Unit?
A. If you ever experience issues with your unit or code errors, NCT Plumbing can help diagnose and troubleshoot them!
