Installing a tankless water heater at your home gives your family many benefits. But to keep this system working effectively for years to come, you’ll want to do a little bit of preventative maintenance. 1st Choice Plumbing has three tips for tankless water heater maintenance that will keep things running smoothly.

  1. Check the filter – Did you know that your tankless water heater has a filter? The more you use it, the more deposits will collect on the filter. A periodic inspection by a licensed plumber will help you know when to change the filter for optimal performance. How often you’ll need to change your filter will depend on your water quality.
  2. Flush the system – Your water heater will need periodic flushes to help prevent lime and scale buildup in the lines. Please note that only licensed service technicians should perform this work.
  3. Create a maintenance schedule – Finally, we suggest that you set up a maintenance schedule. Plug dates into your calendar based on your plumber’s assessment of your electric or gas tankless water heater. This is the best way to avoid forgetting the maintenance your system needs.

If you’re looking to install one of these systems or need maintenance or repairs on your current one, call 1st Choice Plumbing today. Our tankless water heater services will help you protect your investment – and your supply of hot water!
