Tankless water heaters reduce energy expenses while providing a steady supply of hot water when needed. These types of water heaters use 30 – 50% less energy than “traditional” water heaters with tanks. Tankless water heaters only heat the water when it is turned on and typically operate on natural gas. In addition, they are more compact and can be mounted on the wall to take up less space. Homeowners that opt for a tankless water heater typically pay less and experience longer equipment lives as well. To keep your tankless water heater working properly and efficiently, regular maintenance should be performed.
One of the most common issues that need to be addressed is scaling, which is the buildup of minerals that occurs over time. While all tap water contains trace minerals, areas with hard water can present more of a challenge to homeowners. Hard water and mineral build-ups can cause problems for kitchens, baths and laundry rooms. You’ll notice this is you see deposits on glasses and dishware, soap not lathering, the laundry becomes stiff, and higher water and utility bills.
Tankless Water Heater Descaling in Los Angeles
Clearing your tankless water heater of dissolved calcium and magnesium salts is important for its proper functioning. Descaling is a process similar to cleaning or flushing, which requires running a large amount of water and solution through your heat exchanger. The process typically takes at least an hour to completely break down and remove the mineral accumulation.
