Should You Install a Tankless Water Heater?
We ask this because tankless water heaters—although highly efficient and convenient—are not the right choice for every home.
Keep in mind that just because they’re known for supplying hot water “on demand,” it doesn’t mean tankless units can provide you with instant, unlimited hot water all the time. Before purchasing a new unit, you will need to look at the flow rate and make sure it matches your household’s hot water demands. Larger households may require a unit with a higher flow rate.
Tankless water heaters also require a slightly different installation process, particularly gas units. A licensed plumber experienced in tankless water heater installation will need to make sure your gas lines are large enough to accommodate the higher volume of fuel; you may also need to upgrade your existing ventilation and install a dedicated electrical outlet for the water heater.
Troubleshooting Tankless Water Heater Problems
While tankless water heaters are known to last longer than their tank-style counterparts, this doesn’t mean they won’t develop problems over time. Common tankless water heater problems include the unit turning off when you use the shower, lack of hot water, and inconsistent water temperatures.
In most cases, issues stem from inadequate flow rates. This is why it’s important to consult with a professional on the right flow rate for your household. If your water heater’s minimum flow rate is not enough to handle your hot water demands, you may need to upgrade to a more powerful unit or complement your existing unit with point-of-use water heaters.
Other tankless water heater problems may be caused by blocked vents, a clogged heat exchanger (if you have untreated hard water), ignition failure, or a soiled burner. If you begin to notice inefficiencies in your water heater, contact us for professional diagnosis and repair.
