Typically, most of the troubles that could happen with a tankless water heater, triggering it to need a repair are external factors. Here are a few of them:

  • The venting is not right. The most typical mistake is using regular B-vent, which can swiftly damage the heat exchanger due to acidic condensation.
  • Check the gas supply line. Often the supply line is undersized and was simply attached to the existing line size. The size specified in the installation manual needs to be utilized.
  • The gas pressure is not correct. The working pressure should be from 5 to 10 1/2 inches WC for Natural Gas and 9 1/2 to 14 inches for Liquid Propane, relying on the model.
  • The wrong sort of gas that is being used – natural gas or liquid propane. It is not possible to use the non-specified type.
  • Water flow or temperature variation problems. There are a number of things we will check to ensure they are working effectively, like cleaning or changing the input filter, examining the check valve, examining the seals in the faucets and looking to see if there is a cross flow somewhere that has to be dealt with.
  • Hard Water Problems: In locations where the water is extremely hard, de-scaling will be needed regularly.
  • Environmental concerns. The heaters must be set up in a clean area with access to combustion air that is free from dust, lint, grease, or chemicals.
