To save on energy costs is just one of many reasons why people nowadays are strongly considering using tankless water heaters in their homes. But when you install any appliance in your home, you also want to be confident that you are able to get any needed repairs. Here at Hall’s Plumbing, we offer tankless water heater repair as one of our many professional plumbing services.
Tankless (also known as demand or instant) type water heaters work by running water through lines located close to heating elements. These types of water heaters don’t hot hold water in a tank or try to heat an entire tank of water whenever you need some hot water. Rather, a tankless water heater runs water through pipes (with a setup much like modern-time pasteurization) right next to heating elements, so the water can be heated to high temperatures very quickly. Just like any water heater repair, you’ll want tankless water heater repair right away if something breaks. That’s why we here at Hall’s Plumbing offer tankless water heater repair as part of our services.
Tankless water heaters can provide about 2-5 gallons of hot water each minute. However, in a large 0720household, one tankless water heater may not be able to supply enough water to support multiple major hot water uses at once. Apart from logistical planning – required to make sure you can use your system and have enough hot water to support your uses without unnecessary strain on the system – there are other things that can cause the failure of your system which may then need tankless water heater repair. These include mineral buildup, air/exhaust blockage, and ignition/flame failures (which are all incidentally also issues in traditional tank water heating systems.)
