Tankless water heaters make a great alternative to more traditional water heaters. Instead of storing water separately for later use, it heats the water up automatically as it passes through your pipes. That lets it work instantly and provides a theoretically endless supply of hot water, as well as costing less to operate on the whole. But like any other system, it can run into problems from time to time, and when it does, you can rely on quality heating services here in Atlanta, GA to make it right. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the more common tankless water heater repairs for you.
Tankless water heaters generate a lot of heat, which needs to be properly vented out of your home lest it cause internal components to overheat and the damage to escalate. Some systems have automatic shut-off switches designed to prevent this in case there’s a problem with your vent. But regardless, if there’s a clog or damage to your venting system it needs to be addressed before your system will work properly again.
Hard water usually isn’t a problem around here: it’s harmless and you can still drink and clean with it. But because of the way tankless water heaters work, it’s apt to leave calcium build-ups on the system after a while. Eventually, it interferes with the system’s ability to work and can result in a breakdown if it isn’t addressed properly.
When condensation drips onto the burners, it can result in corrosion. Over time, it will corrode nearby components to the point where the system will not function. Timely maintenance on your system can help stop such problems before they start and save you a hefty repair bill in the process.
