Over time, calcium, magnesium and other minerals build up in tankless systems. This reduces efficiency, making it harder for your system to keep up with the demand for hot water. Over time, the extra strain on your system can lead to costly breakdowns or early system failure.
A critical component of a tankless water heater is the heat exchanger. Scaling and buildup in the narrow heat exchanger passages can limit or block the ability for water to pass through. When this occurs, the burners must work harder to heat water to compensate for lost efficiency, leading to increased breakdowns and shortened equipment life.
Just like a tank unit, tankless water heaters need annual maintenance which includes a system flush once per year.
