With everyone working from home and people spending so much time indoors, our water heaters have really gotten a workout in the past two years. If you’ve been one of the lucky homeowners to avoid running into heater problems, then congratulations! Let’s continue the streak by having your system inspected by a professional.
As a matter of fact, waiting until something goes wrong with your water heater might not be the most affordable way of dealing with things. Water heaters, especially tankless water heaters in Boise, ID, can be maintained to avoid repairs. One of our professionals can inspect your system to ensure that it’s running smoothly and doesn’t need to be fixed in the foreseeable future.
While tankless water heaters have their own maintenance needs and they require less maintenance overall than their tank counterparts, this is the perfect time for this kind of service no matter what kind of water heater you own!
Why Maintenance? And Why Now?
Temperatures are pretty warm right now, which means that a cold shower can actually feel refreshing on a hot day. Sure, we need to use our fair share of hot water for laundry and doing dishes, but it’s not the end of the world if your water heater is out of commission for half a day. This provides the perfect opportunity for a technician to provide maintenance services for your system. They can clean the burners or coil, make sure that it’s running efficiently, and test the speed and pressure of the water to make sure you’re getting the most out of your system.
Then, when temperatures are cold and you need a hot bath to stay happy during the winter, you’ll have a hot water heater that’s up to the challenge! Maintenance is preventative, which means they’re meant to keep you happy and comfortable in the future. Getting it done now is going to help you later, which is a great deal.
Tankless Systems Still Need Maintenance
Sure, tankless water heaters don’t need as much maintenance as tank water heaters, but they still need some maintenance performed.
Tankless water heaters don’t have as much contact with water, which means they deal with less corrosion and sediment build-up. This is ultimately a good thing and a great reason to invest in a tankless water heater.
Unfortunately, tankless systems still require maintenance for specific components. The gas burners or electric coils need to be cleaned so that they can provide fast and ample heat to the water in order to superheat it for your needs. Also, the few components that do come in contact with the water need to be checked for corrosion.
Set Yourself Up for Success
Both repair and maintenance services are absolutely necessary for your tankless water heater. You’ll need to call for repairs when you’re encountering lukewarm water, poor water pressure, leaks, and other issues that you can assume are coming from your water heater. Then, during the summer or fall, call us for water heater maintenance services so we can clean your system and ensure it’s ready for the cold season to come!
