Water Heater Descaling Lakewood CO

Descaling the Heat Exchanger

Mineral deposits build up inside your tankless water heater restricting water flow and creating a corridor of ‘insulation’ which forces your tankless water heater to work harder to heat the water.

Airways Ventilation With Insects

Airways & Ventilation

Keeping filters, fans, and airways free of dirt, debris, and pet air prevents avoidable repairs, resulting in a water heater that works more efficiently and lasts longer.

Maintaining Your Tankless Water Heater for a Long Life

Your water heater requires TLC, just like your car, A/C, and furnace. The white deposits you see on sinks, faucets, and other appliances are a symptom of Colorado’s mineral-rich hard water. The same scale build-up is also happening inside the pipes and appliances that come in contact with warm or hard water. This is why we suggest tankless maintenance to flush out the heat exchanger and check and clean water and air filters, igniters, fans, and the burner assembly. We'll even inspect gas pressure, venting, and measure system performance so your water heater stays in top shape.

Manufacturer Recommended Routine Maintenance

Control compartments, burners, and circulating air passageways of the appliance must be kept clean. Tankless manufacturers' warranties require a licensed professional to inspect your system annually. Running your system without maintenance will decrease efficiency and lifespan.

How Often Does a Tankless Water Heater Require Routine Maintenance?

For a typical 1-4 person household, a tankless water heater requires service every 12 months. However, for commercial properties with higher hot water demands, like restaurants, salons, laundromats, groomers, and hotels the system might need service every 3 or 6 months. Routine maintenance for your tankless water heater can ensure that it is operating efficiently and effectively to overcome the hard water and high-altitude challenges we face in the Denver metro area.
