Douglasville Tankless Water Heater Services

Experts on Maintenance, Repair, and Installation

When you have a tankless water heater or are thinking about getting one, there are some things you must know about these devices that will help you make an informed decision and keep your tankless water heater in great condition.

How Tankless Units Work

Much like a traditional water heater, a tankless water heater has a cold-water supply line, a line that carries the heated water, a gas line, and an exhaust vent. Apart from these similarities, though, a tankless water heater actually operates more similarly to a furnace than a traditional water heater.

In tankless water heater units, the cold water is forced through tubes that reside in a heat exchanger. This heat exchanger is responsible for gathering heat from the gas-fired flames and transferring that heat to the pipes.

A sensor in the tankless water heater detects the temperature of the water as it leaves the tank. If the measured temperature drifts from the set temperature, the water heater automatically adjusts the water flow, air intake, and gas flow to change the temperature of the heated water.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater in Douglasville, GA, and Nearby Areas

If you’re the type of person who enjoys long showers, then a tankless water heater is for you. This is because a tankless water heater that’s properly installed by our team can provide essentially unlimited hot water, unlike a traditional water heater that eventually runs out of hot water.

Another great perk of a tankless water heater is that they use less energy than tanked units. Since water doesn’t have to be kept warm while it’s stored, a tankless water heater only uses energy when you use hot water. Newer tankless units utilize a second heat exchanger to achieve even higher efficiencies, leading to major savings on your utility bill.

Proper Maintenance is Crucial

To avoid a premature tankless water heater replacement, you’ll want to be sure to carefully maintain your unit on a regular basis. Some types of maintenance are model-specific, while other types need to be done across all models.

One maintenance item that should be completed on all types of tankless units is the flushing of scale deposits. While this is something you should do with a traditional water heater, it’s even more crucial on a tankless model since these units are very sensitive to differences in water pressure. If scale deposits cause a drop in water flow or pressure, it could cause your unit to shut down.

Units with 2 heat exchangers also require an acid-neutralizing cartridge that needs to be changed from time to time. This is needed because the process of capturing the escaping heat creates a condensate that is acidic enough to cause damage to the system if it’s not properly neutralized.

Additionally, some units utilize air filters to maintain proper airflow. As with any other air filter, these filters eventually become dirty, requiring replacement to avoid the need for extensive water heater services.

Tankless water heater installation is a project that can make great improvements in your home. Unlike some other home improvement projects, though, installing a tankless water heater is not do-it-yourself friendly. Due to the exacting tolerances required on the gas, water, and air supplies, you’ll want someone with training and experience to install your tankless water heater.
