What is a Tankless Water Heater?

A tankless water heater heats water as it flows through the unit, rather than storing water and heating the entire tank all at once, as with a traditional water heater. Tankless water heaters have been replacing standard water heaters for decades and are more affordable than ever. If you’re already a tankless owner, you know the ease of use is unparalleled, the cost savings are real, and it’s better for the environment. Tankless water heaters offer these benefits:

Water is heated only when needed: No storing a large amount of water waiting to be used. This makes it more energy-efficient than tank systems.

Powered by either gas or electric: Can be installed in any home and use its existing plumbing.

Hot and ready on demand: No more waiting for hot water while wasting gallons. Better for the environment and your water bill.

The Basics of Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

We recommend annual maintenance to keep your tankless water heater in top working condition. There are also a few housekeeping tasks you should do to ensure your heater is functioning correctly and efficiently:

Replace the air filter: Do this every six months to ensure proper airflow.

Check the venting system: Inspect the venting system for any blockages or leaks.

Inspect water connections: Ensure the inlet and outlet connections are secure and tighten them if they’re loose.

When to Hire a Tankless Water Heater Professional

We recommend you call a professional to service your tankless water heater once a year. This will ensure that the unit is operating efficiently and safely. It’s also a good idea to schedule regular maintenance if you notice any of these issues:

  • Decrease in hot water flow
