Tech working on tankless water heater - How to Maintain Your Tankless Water Heater According to Experts

Tankless water heaters, known for their efficiency and longevity, still require regular maintenance to perform at their best. Understanding these essential maintenance tasks can help extend the life of your unit and ensure consistent, reliable hot water.  

1. Annual Professional Inspections 

A key aspect of tankless water heater maintenance is having an annual inspection conducted by a professional. This ensures all components are functioning correctly and identifies any potential issues before they become major problems. 

2. Cleaning of Mineral Buildup 

Over time, mineral buildup can occur in your tankless water heater, especially in areas with hard water. Professional cleaning can remove these deposits, which helps maintain efficiency and prolongs the lifespan of the heater. 

3. Regular Filter Checks and Replacement 

Filters in tankless water heaters need regular checking and replacement to ensure the system remains free from debris and operates efficiently. This simple step can prevent costly repairs and maintain water quality. 

4. System Flush for Optimal Performance 

Flushing the system periodically is crucial to prevent scaling and buildup inside the water heater. This process involves running a solution through the heater to clean out any accumulated minerals and debris. 

5. Ventilation Checks for Gas Models 

For gas-powered tankless water heaters, checking and maintaining the ventilation system is vital. This ensures safe operation and optimal efficiency, as well as preventing dangerous carbon monoxide buildup.
