Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are a great investment. They are energy efficient because they heat only the water you need. They can also lower your utility bills. Tankless water heaters have a long life span of 10+ years when maintained properly—and we’ve seen some last dozens of years, thanks to regular maintenance.
Absolute Plumbing can handle all your tankless water heater needs, from service and repair to replacement and installation. We also conduct yearly maintenance on tankless water heaters in the Appleton & Neenah Area.
Benefits of Tankless Water Heaters
Gas-fired tankless water heaters are more efficient than standard tank-type heaters. They only heat water as needed and shut down when water demand ceases. That means they don’t use unnecessary energy. With the energy savings and a 20-year life span, they make an excellent alternative to standard heaters, which typically last half as long.
Tankless water heaters also deliver a constant supply of hot water. That means no more waiting for your standard tank to fill. Your family can take shower after shower without running out of hot water.
Servicing & Maintaining your Tankless Water Heater
Most manufacturers recommend yearly servicing for tankless water heaters. Especially in an area like the Bay Area, with hard water. The calcium deposits left behind by our water must be cleaned out on a regular basis. If you don’t do annual servicing, you’ll begin see a drop in water temperature. And if you wait too long to service, calcium deposits will begin to eat away at your tankless water heater, causing pinhole leaks.
In addition to yearly flushing, you need your burner cleaned every three to five years. Otherwise, you risk carbon buildup, which can cause flame loss or ignition failure.
