Storage tank water heaters are the conventional water heater, found in most homes throughout the country. They’re large, noticeable, and depending on their location can be pretty noisy too. That being said, it’s fairly easy to remember that this big system needs service and maintenance from time to time. During that maintenance, the water heater is often flushed, as mineral buildup (scaling) occurs and threatens the integrity of the system. Scaling is noticeable in a tank water heater because it leads to a clanging noise, and causes issues with pressure, temperature, and corrosion.
What many people don’t realize, is that tankless water heater models can experience this same problem, and therefore need maintenance just as much as their storage tank counterparts. If you haven’t scheduled tankless water heater maintenance in the past year, it’s time to give a professional Parker, CO plumber a call. In the meantime, read on to learn more about this problem.
