Whether you’re in the market for a more efficient water heater or you need help maintaining your current unit, the expertly trained team at My Plumber LLC can help. Our Cobb County plumbing technicians are trained in the proper maintenance, repair, and installation of several different units, including tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters are often considered one of the most efficient styles given their lengthy lifespan. Like all units, however, the tankless styles need to be maintained regularly to last for years.
Tankless Water Heater Maintenance
Unlike traditional units, tankless water heaters do not store water to keep it ready for the next use. The slim design makes the unit easy to store in nearly any closet and is often used in condo or apartment construction. Tankless water heaters are designed to last for up to 20 years, which is nearly a decade longer than traditional models.
Tankless hot water heaters are prone to scaling, so the unit needs to be professionally cleaned every one to two years, depending on use. Descaling the unit ensures it will continue to operate at an optimal level for your family. The regular maintenance also gives your professional Cobb County plumber the opportunity to inspect the unit for any possible issues. A yearly inspection of your tankless water heater gives your unit the best likelihood of lasting for the expected two decades.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
Installing a tankless water heater can help you save on your monthly energy bill. The U.S. Department of Energy reports heating water accounts for roughly 30 percent of your energy bills. Using a tankless water heater can reduce these costs by up to 50 percent. Because the units don’t hold water like traditional water heaters, they eliminate the risk of leaks or potential flooding in your Cobb County home if a problem occurs.
While there are benefits to installing a tankless system in your home, there are some points to keep in mind. A tankless water heater produces hot water at a rate of 3 to 5 gallons per minute. Depending on the number of people in your home, you may need to have two tankless systems installed to keep up with the demand for hot water. It’s also good to know that if the power source in your home goes out, the tankless system cannot produce hot water. The systems have no backup source during a power outage.
The energy efficiency of your tankless water heater can be optimized by proper installation.
Hiring a reputable, transparent water heater repair and installation specialist will ensure the job is done right. Due to installation factors like local building code requirements, fuel type, and safety issues, this is not a DIY project. Partner with the professionals at My Plumber LLC to have your tankless system installed safely and efficiently.
