WATER HEATERS TANKLESS & TRADITIONAL
Is your water not heating up like it used to?
Running out of Hot Water? Try a Tankless.
If you need more hot water than your current system can handle, it may be time to get a tankless heater.
How does a Tankless Water Heater Work?
Unlike a traditional heater, a tankless unit shuts down and uses no energy when it’s not in use. It’s a more efficient system that can meet higher hot water demand and save you up to 40% on your utility bill.
Maintaining your Water Heater
Water heaters can last 10 years or longer when properly maintained. Below are 3 simple things you can do to keep your system running smoothly.
Combat the Corrosion
Corrosion is the number one killer of a hot water heater. Typically, this is the result of neglect. Routinely inspecting the inlet and outlet fittings for rust will keep your system in top shape.
Know When to Flush
Sediment that may have built up over the year can settle at the bottom of your heater. This buildup makes it much more difficult to produce hot water. Flushing your water heater every 6 months to a year can significantly increase the efficiency of your hot water heater. Once you’ve flushed the sediment buildup, you can expect lower utility bills and hot water quicker (as long as you flush it regularly).
Identify Cause for Concern
Unfortunately, living in Houston puts us at a disadvantage because the water in our area is classified as “hard water.” Hard water refers to the amount of magnesium and calcium levels in our water. It’s harmless to humans and animals, but hard water can increase the need for a water heater repair.
