Tips for Maintaining Your New Tankless Water Heater

Last updated 5 years ago

Getting the most from your water heater is about more than simply choosing the right water heating system. It is also about proper set up, operation, and maintenance. To better optimize your Rinnai water heater’s energy efficiency and prolong the life of your tankless water heater, take care to exercise the following steps during and after the installation process.

Hire a Pro for the Install

The proper installation of your tankless water heater by a professional who is trained and certified to install such appliances is vital to the efficiency and longevity of your water heater. Do not, under any circumstances, allow someone who is unqualified to install your water heater. And never attempt to install your tankless water heater on your own.

Remove Mineral Buildup

Regardless of whether we are talking about a bathroom faucet or a whole home water heating system, lime scale and hard scale build up are inevitable when a machine’s primary function is to heat tap water. Since excessive mineral buildup can impact your water heater’s function and even damage its interior walls, sediment should be removed at least once a year.

Deep Clean Once Annually

The best way to remove accumulated mineral buildup from your water heater is during a deep cleaning. After shutting off and properly preparing your water heating system, you should flush it entirely and use vinegar to remove mineral scale before flushing it again and reusing it.

Keep an Eye Out

Most hot water heater problems are far less difficult and expensive to repair when they are detected early on. Keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary, and contact a qualified service professional should your tankless water heater require maintenance or repair.

If it is time to replace your old water heater, you will be doing everyone in your household a favor by investing in a new tankless water heater by Rinnai.
