Do You Have A Tankless Water Heater With Low Pressure.

Tankless hot water heaters are very popular nowadays. People are putting them in and not knowing the down falls of having a tankless water heater. Most people think of the short term pros which are the two obvious first is the fact that they have unlimited hot water the second is it takes up less space. But no one thinks about down the road problems such as if the tankless water heater goes out and needs to be serviced by your Orlando plumber most plumbing companies don’t carry parts and have to order it so if it goes out on the weekend or at night you will be without hot water for a longer period of time.

The most common con for having a tankless hot water heater is low water pressure. This happens over time. What is the cause for this? Well living in Florida we have some of the hardest water in the nation and how a tankless water heater works is water is restricted through a heat exchanger and heated up quickly on demand but over time mineral deposits form narrowing the already small tubes causing extremely low water pressure on the hot side. Depending on if you have a water softener or how hard your water is you may need to have a plumber in Orlando perform a flush service on the heater. This is done by running a special chemical through the tankless water heater to remove build up and some homes may need to do this as much as once a year. This will keep your water heater working in its original state.
