Tankless Water Heater Installation and Service

Many people believe that a tankless water heater does not require maintenance. They think that tankless water heaters can function without the same hiccups that conventional water heaters typically have.

Conventional water heaters require regular maintenance, so many people assume that the tankless alternative does not. Unfortunately, tankless water heaters need just as much maintenance as traditional water heaters, which comes as a surprise to many homeowners.

While tankless water heaters are much more efficient than their conventional counterparts, homeowners must adequately maintain them to function best.

What is a Tankless Water Heater?

A tankless water heater is a more compact alternative to a conventional water heater. Tankless water heaters are desirable for homeowners because they heat water directly.
Tankless water heaters are different from other types of water heaters because they:

  • Heat water directly, instead of storing heated water
  • They are compact in design and are primarily out of the way
  • Deliver a continuous supply of warm water
  • Water is heated as it flows through the piping
  • Can save homeowners a lot of money on their energy bills

Unlike the conventional water heater, tankless water heaters can deliver hot water directly to the piping. This process occurs without the use of a storage tank, which saves a lot of space.

Traditional water heaters have to heat tens to hundreds of gallons of water, taking a considerable amount of time. This process uses a lot of gas and energy, making it largely inefficient for most homes.

Tankless water heaters are the perfect solution for homeowners looking to save money on energy bills each month. They provide hot water on demand to users, which means that it takes less time to get the water they need.

Tankless water heaters are also very compact, which makes them an excellent choice for many homeowners. Unlike conventional water heaters, tankless water heaters are space-efficient, making them easy to install in any home.

Maintenance for a Tankless Water Heater

While tankless water heaters are much more energy-efficient than conventional water heaters, they still need regular maintenance.

At Certified Plumbing of Brevard, we recommend maintenance for a tankless water heater at least every year. Yearly maintenance ensures that the water heater hasn’t developed any significant problems.

This maintenance also allows plumbing experts to diagnose potential problems. A diagnosis could prevent costly issues and failures from arising in a tankless water heater convenient for homeowners.
Types of maintenance include:

  • Tankless Water Heater Installation
  • Repair
  • Replacement

A plumbing expert will typically diagnose the problem before providing a solution. This diagnosis allows the plumbing expert better to understand the homeowner’s tankless water heater system. After the diagnosis, the plumbing expert will be able to address the problem.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

If a homeowner is looking to switch from a conventional water heater to a tankless water heater, Certified Plumbing of Brevard can be of assistance.

The tankless water heater installation is simple, allowing homeowners to experience the benefits of their new tankless water heater. After installing the new unit, the homeowner can start saving money on their energy bill while having access to readily available hot water.


Sometimes, the homeowner’s tankless water heater may require maintenance. Thankfully, our plumbing experts provide quality solutions for any tankless water heater. Repairs are necessary because they ensure that the tankless water heater will continue to function as intended.

By getting necessary repairs done on time, a homeowner ensures that their tankless water heater will last a long time. According to the Department of Energy, a properly maintained tankless water heater can last up to 20 years.


If a homeowner’s tankless water heater is over 20 years old, it may be time to replace it. Thankfully, there are plenty of energy-efficient tankless water heaters on the market nowadays, leaving customers with plenty of options for their new water heater.

While many homeowners prefer repairing their tankless water heater, it can sometimes be best to replace it entirely.

Common Tankless Water Heater Problems

Tankless water heaters are much more efficient than traditional water heaters; however, they need frequent service to function best.

Unfortunately, problems can sometimes arise with a tankless water heater. These problems can be a hassle to deal with, especially for a busy homeowner. Thankfully, a plumbing expert can help assess the situation, giving homeowners peace of mind along the way.
Some of the most common issues we’ve seen in tankless water heaters include:

  • The inside of the water heater has begun scaling
  • Water tastes and smells foul
  • The water heater makes banging or rattling noises
  • Water pressure is inconsistent
  • Warning messages have started appearing on the water heater
  • Hot water is unreliable, rather than continuous
  • Water appears rusty, cloudy, or filled with other materials

The Inside of the Water Heater Has Begun Scaling

If a homeowner lives in an area with hard water issues, mineral buildup or sediment deposits may eventually become a problem.

Sometimes, these mineral deposits can block piping, which can cause inconsistent water pressure. If a homeowner notices scaling, they should immediately call a plumbing expert.

Water Tastes and Smells Foul

Bad tasting water is never a good sign. It almost always indicates a sediment or mineral buildup in a water heater, which could mean trouble for homeowners. If a homeowner notices that their water has a particularly metallic taste, they should immediately call a plumbing service.

The Water Heater Makes Banging or Clanging Noises

Another sign that sediment has overtaken a tankless water heater is unsettling noises coming from the unit or pipes. This noise comes from water trying to pass through the deposit, making a forceful banging noise afterward.

Water Pressure is Inconsistent

If the water pressure is inconsistent, there might be a problem with sediment or a problem with the system entirely. If the problem is the system, it will, unfortunately, have to go.

Inconsistent water pressure signals that something is wrong with a water heater, so People should notify a plumbing expert as soon as possible.

Warning Messages Have Appeared on a Water Heater

Some tankless water heaters have warning messages, which display on the heater when a problem arises.

If a message pops up, it is best to call a plumbing expert immediately. Even if the problem doesn’t seem severe, it is better to contact as soon as possible to prevent potential issues.

Hot Water is Inconsistent

If water is hot for only brief or intermittent periods, it might be time to call a repair service. This inconsistent heat could signal a failure within the water heater, so it is best that a professional immediately attend to the issue.

Water Appears Cloudy

This issue usually signals an issue with sediment buildup. Usually, water will also taste or smell bad if it has a cloudy appearance. This problem could occur because of the local area’s water quality or a problem with hard water buildup. The best way to adequately address this problem is by contacting a professional plumbing service.

What Do I Do If I Have a Tankless Water Heater Problem?

  1. Turn off your water heater: This measure is essential, especially if the water heater is leaking water or gas.
  2. Clean up the area: If the water heater has leaked, be sure to clean the water heater. Once the unit has cooled, flush the system by placing a bucket under the release valve.
  3. Call Certified Plumbing of Brevard: By calling a professional plumbing service, you are ensuring a thorough fix for your water heater. Our plumbing experts can help diagnose the issue and inform owners of the best actions to improve a property’s plumbing.
