Don’t you love your tankless water heater? It’s less noticeable; it’s not as noisy, and it’s far sleeker looking than a traditional tank. Despite all of these advantages, it still needs maintenance to avoid scaling. So, what’s scaling? Scaling is the build-up of minerals, like calcium, in your tank that can affect its performance.
The minerals that accumulate in your tank can turn your tankless heater into another noisy appliance due to particles banging around inside the tank. It can lead to lower water pressure and cause your water heater to work harder to heat your water. Worst of all, these mineral deposits can cause corrosion and force you to replace piping prematurely.
The good news is that regular maintenance can prevent these issues. How hard your water is determines how often you should service your tankless water heater. If you live in an area with extremely hard water, you should service twice a year. All others should service their water heater once per year. Regular servicing will extend the life of the unit, and if properly serviced, your tank-less water heater should last 20+ years.
