While a tankless water heater doesn’t have a tank, it has a boiler which is just as prone to scale buildup as a tank. Scale formed by continuous flow of hard water can be dangerous to the water heater system, particularly reducing heat transfer in the boiler. Professional servicing from plumbing firms like Capital Care Plumbing can help deal with these sediments and prolong the life of Sugar Land water heaters for up to about 25 years.
New standards will require water heater manufacturers to replace or add components to their products. With these changes, even installation and methods may slightly be changed. Homeowners should turn to expert plumbers when installing a new tankless water heater unit. This will help reduce the cost of repair and maintenance down the road.
