Efficiency and Benefits

Tankless water heaters are a modern alternative to traditional tank-based units. While both provide your home with hot water, tankless water heater benefits include the following:

  • On-demand hot water: Tankless units heat water instantly, so you don’t have to wait for your hot shower or bath.
  • Energy efficiency: Unlike storage tank heaters, tankless units don’t waste energy heating water you don’t need. This translates into reduced energy consumption and utility costs.
  • Compact design: Modern tankless units have a compact footprint, enabling them to fit into smaller spaces.
  • Longer lifespan: Tankless heaters tend to last longer than conventional tanks, saving you money in the long run. 

Common Tankless Water Heater Issues

Although tankless water heaters offer many advantages, they can suffer from wear and tear like any other appliance. Common problems include the following:

  • Mineral buildup: Hard water can deposit calcium and magnesium in your system, lowering efficiency, creating blockages, causing leaks, and reducing the unit’s lifespan.
  • Fluctuating temperatures: Dirty filters, flow problems, sediment buildup, and faulty sensors may lead to sudden changes in water temperature.
  • Electrical or gas-related issues: Electrical glitches or gas ignition problems can disrupt your water heater’s operation.
  • Water leaks: Water heaters can experience leaks in supply lines, valves, and the units themselves.

If you notice excessive noise, strange smells, inconsistent water temperatures, or other issues, call Covenant Plumbing for prompt repair services. Regular attention improves tankless water heater efficiency, effectiveness, and longevity.

DIY Troubleshooting and Safety

If you notice minor issues with your tankless water heater, you can start with the following basic troubleshooting steps. To ensure safety, turn off your water heater’s power sources and gas lines before attempting any DIY solution.

  • Cleaning filters: Cleaning or replacing filters helps maintain water quality and flow rate.
  • Inspecting for obstructions: Visually check that your water lines and plumbing fixtures are free from blockages.
  • Adjusting temperature settings: If the water is too hot or too cold, you may need to change the temperature setting.
  • Checking error codes: Modern tankless water heaters have control panels to alert you to problems like exhaust blockages, power interruptions, and ignition failures.

If these steps don’t resolve the issue, or if you just feel more comfortable working with a professional, contact Covenant Plumbing for expert tankless water heater repair services.

Professional Installation and Maintenance

Installing a tankless water heater is more complicated than installing a standard tank heater. It often involves working with gas lines, electrical connections, and other potentially dangerous components. 

Hiring professional plumbers for tankless water heater installation services is crucial to preventing mistakes, maintaining safety, and maximizing your investment. The licensed technicians at Covenant Plumbing will do the following:

  • Choose the correct water heater size for your needs

Thorough, professional and skilled all around!
