Cinco Ranch Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters have gained popularity in recent years due to their energy efficiency and steady hot water supply. Unlike traditional water heaters that store and continuously heat a fixed amount of water, tankless water heaters do their work instantaneously as soon the water is turned on in the house. This means they do not require a large storage tank, resulting in a more compact and space-saving design.

Common Problems With Tankless Water Heaters

Every situation is different, but these are some of the issues we see recur most frequently: 

Failing Pipes

Mineral deposits and sediment can accumulate in the pipes, restricting water flow and causing reduced performance. This can result in lower water pressure and inadequate heating. Regular maintenance, including flushing the system to remove any build-up, can help prevent clogged pipes and enable optimum performance.

Failing Heat Exchanger

The heat exchanger is responsible for transferring heat from the burner to the water. Corrosion can occur due to prolonged exposure to acidic water, among other things. A corroded heat exchanger can lead to leaks and inefficient heating. 

Failing Thermostat

The thermostat controls the temperature of the water, ensuring that it reaches the desired level. If the thermostat is not functioning properly, the water may be too hot or not hot enough. This can be inconvenient and uncomfortable. In some cases, the thermostat may need to be recalibrated or replaced to restore proper functionality.

Failing Air Supply 

Tankless water heater units require a steady supply of air for combustion. If the air supply is blocked, it can cause the burner to shut off or function improperly. Common causes of a blocked air supply include debris, dust, or obstructions around the venting system. 

A Failed Installation 

If the unit is not installed correctly or if it is undersized for your household's hot water demand, it may struggle to provide sufficient hot water or experience frequent breakdowns. The professionals at Pipe Doctors have over 45 years of combined experience helping homeowners get their tankless water heaters installed right the first time.

How to Know When Your Tankless Water Heater Is Failing

The signs that indicate your system is starting to struggle include these: 

Poor Water Pressure

If you find that your faucets or showerheads are producing weak streams of water, it could be an indication there is an issue with your water heater. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, including sediment build-up in the pipes, a faulty pressure valve, or a malfunctioning water heater component. 

Poor Water Quality 

If you notice discolored water or a foul odor coming from your taps, it could be a sign of sediment or rust buildup within the tank. Additionally, if you observe particles or debris in your hot water, it may be an indication of a corroded or deteriorating water heater. Poor water quality can affect your daily tasks, your health, and the long-term viability of the tankless water heater.
