Routine Maintenance for Tankless Water Heaters
Routine Maintenance is essential on tankless water heaters. All manufacturers of water heaters and tankless water heaters require annual maintenance to keep warranties valid. Tankless water heaters are manufactured with stainless steel heat exchangers that have narrow cavities between the sections.
A natural process of heating water is removal of calcium. The calcium builds up on the stainless heat exchanger. Eventually it slows the heat transfer process reducing efficiency and if let go for a long enough time it will slow down and even stop the flow of hot water. Annual maintenance includes an acid (or vinegar) flush of the system. The acid dissolves the calcium and brings the tankless water heater back to its original efficiency.
Routine maintenance also includes a complete check out of gas controls, safety’s and calibration ot factory specifications. Most importantly you are dealing with explosive natural gases and for the safety of you and your family check out and maintain your tankless water heater every year.
