Preventative Maintenance for Tankless Heaters

Over time, a tankless water heater can accumulate minerals that can build up on and erode the walls inside your tank’s heating chamber. To properly maintain your tankless water heater, it must be flushed (descaled) at least once per year to ensure optimal performance and efficiency.

This service includes:

• Flushing the unit with vinegar
• Clean out combustion chamber
• Clean flame rods
• Check vent and fan for debris
• Clean inlet sediment filter
• Inspect insulation

Thermal Bypass Hot Water Recirculation

Did you know the average home wastes over 31 gallons a day and over 11,000 gallons a year waiting for hot water? This is enough to fill a 14′ x 30′ swimming pool!  In every home, water flows from the water heater through the pipes to the faucets. If the hot water has not been used recently, the water in the pipes has cooled; resulting in the familiar wait for hot water to again reach the faucet. We have the solution that allows you to save money and time!
The Aquamotion automatic recirculation system works the same way as the Grundfos system above but is designed specifically for tankless water heaters, which need to heat water any time there is a demand. The system includes a programmable timer, to allow the user to determine when the system will be active.

For new tankless water heaters, Rinnai’s RUR series includes an integrated recirculation system that can operate as a thermal bypass system or as a dedicated return system (see below). Either way, the RUR offers the user all the benefits of endless hot water delivered quickly throughout the home.

Another way to solve the wait problem, is with a dedicated return system which utilizes a pump, timer, and aquastat (temperature sensor). This is the same system used in hotels and motels around the world.
