Tankless water heaters are gaining in popularity nationwide. They offer unlimited hot water with substantial energy savings over regular tank type water heaters. Like a regular tank type water heater, tankless water heaters require periodic maintenance to combat mineral build up. Mineral buildup inside the heat exchanger will affect the efficiency of the unit, can reduce the life of the unit and can also result in decreased pressure and flow at your fixtures. Albuquerque, Rio Rancho and surrounding areas have particularly hard water and periodic cleaning is a must to maintain the unit.
Cleaning a tankless water heater takes a little over an hour and is typically done every 6 months to 2 years. Hoses and a pump are hooked to a special set of valves under the unit and a cleaning solution is pumped through the heat exchanger for about an hour. The inlet filter is removed and cleaned and the whole unit is flushed before is started up and tested.
