Tankless water heaters are a hefty upfront investment, so we're willing to bet you want yours to last as long as possible. Below, we've compiled a few simple ways to extend the life of your tankless water heater as long as possible:
- Invest in regular maintenance- At least once a year, you should hire a professional to maintain your tankless water heater. Like most homes in Pittsburgh, you probably have hard water. Over time, hard water can result in mineral build-up in your water heater, which can cause other issues. Having a professional regularly maintain your water heater will help prevent any long-term damage.
- Buy extended warranties- If your water heater does need a repair, the cost may be covered under your warranty, which will allow you to extend the life of your current system rather than having to replace it altogether.
- Invest in the right set up- If you have a larger home or household, it's important that you invest in the right amount of point-of-use units in addition to a whole-home unit. This way, your tankless water heaters will be able to meet the hot water demand of your home and won't be overworked.
