Tankless Water Heater Repair & Installation
While tankless water heaters are great for heating water faster and more efficiently than tank water heaters, they do require regular maintenance to continue to run consistently. There are some common problems that come with owning and maintaining a tankless water heater. Here are some issues you may face and the best way for us to fix them:
Low water pressure – this could be caused by a number of things. There could be sediment build-up inside the pipelines. This is a normal occurrence with tankless heaters which is why it is recommended to have maintenance done to prevent the build up from becoming a hassle. We will flush out and descale the system so it can run normally again. Once the build-up is removed, water pressure will return to normal.
Gas line problems – One thing to keep in mind is that a tankless water heater requires larger gas pipelines in order to work more efficiently. If these pipelines are not installed correctly it could cause leaks, low water pressure, or inconsistent water temperatures.
The heater is too noisy – the fan in the heater may need to be cleaned or replaced. Another issue may be a leak in the sealed combustion area of the heater. Proper maintenance will help avoid issues like these from happening.
Water isn’t hot enough – The water not getting hot enough could be caused by a clog in the water filter or a problem with the plumbing crossover that is allowing cold water to mix in the water that has already been heated. We can inspect the heating equipment to find the cause and get it fixed for you in no time.
