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 
  • Ensure the proper placement in your home
  • Professionally install your unit following local plumbing and electrical codes and manufacturer guidelines
  • Calibrate your system for optimal performance and energy efficiency
  • Perform routine maintenance services, including descaling to remove mineral buildup, to keep your system running efficiently and maximize longevity
  • Provide 24/7 emergency repairs if you have urgent issues like water leaks or excessively hot water

I have had reason to use three different plumbing companies in Bloomington area. Covenant Plumbing has been the best! All of the technicians have been helpful. As they work they explain what's taking place and exactly how much it's going to cost if I choose to have something fixed. They're all very pleasant and respectful of my home and belongings as they work. And they always clean up as they go! I won't call anybody but them if I should need a plumber again. The office staff has also always been Pleasant and helpful. I don't hesitate to give all the people I've come in contact with and the company as a whole five stars!

Paying for the service was not fun, but the quality of human beings and quality of service I received was spectacular for this industry.

Thank you covenant plumbing!

lily C.
Very responsive a professionsl.
I called for an estimate on running a new gas line to my pool heater. The person on the phone was friendly and very helpful in setting up an appointment that very day! Shane and David came on time …. Introduced themselves …and got to work quickly. I had an estimate within a half hour and the estimate was half as much as the one another plumber had given to me! Shane had suggestions on how best to do the job and indicated that he had completed lots of similar jobs. I had a great deal of confidence in him right away.Then I asked how long the job would take and how quickly they could schedule it. That’s when the big surprise came! The other plumber had told me he would have to check the schedule and said “maybe within the next two weeks.” Shane from Covenant Plumbing said “we can do it right now …. and it will only take a couple of hours.” I said “let’s do it.”Shane and David finished the job in a little over an hour and the new pool heater fired up right away. The new gas line looks great and works great. I could not be happier with the work they did for me. From my initial phone call and the friendly voice on the other end of the line to the completion of the job …. It was a great experience and I wholeheartedly recommend Covenant Plumbing!And recently…….Covenant did their annual inspection (a great bonus they provide) and found a few issues that needed repair. Jordan (a former Marine) found the problems …. did the repairs and even replaced a faulty toilet in just a few hours. Once again, I could not be happier with Covenant Plumbing. They are my plumbers!
Josh K.
Cameron was very professional, fast, and effective. He also was very patient running me through my options! Thanks again! Highly recommend. Within 3 hours of my hot water heater breaking they came and had it replaced!
Debra E.
