There are a number of things you can always do when it comes to Tankless Water Heater Maintenance in Edmonton AB. However, there are times when the brand of water heater will determine the type of maintenance you need to carry out. Here are some of the most common tankless water heater maintenance tips.

  1. Ensure the Power Source is Always Off

Do you have any idea on how you can turn off your tankless water heater power source? You can do this by either turning off the circuit breaker or turning off the main switch.

  1. Ensure the Valves are Closed and Turned off

You will always get three water valves connected to the heater. Ensure you close them and turn them off. With this, you will be able to stop the cold water from flowing into the water heater. This will also ensure that you stop the hot water from coming out whenever you are doing any cleaning.

  1. Always Detach the Purge Port Valve

Remember to always remove the purge port valve cap whenever you are removing it from the purge valves which are placed on the valves. It is also important that you learn what the purge valves contain. They always have small handles which resemble the letter ‘T’. Knowing this can help save you time in identifying these valves.

  1. Hire a Professional

Although it is possible to take care of your tankless water heater as mentioned earlier by going through the user manual that came with the unit, you should never repair or replace parts inside the unit. This should be level to a water heater specialist that has experience in dealing with the inner parts and workings of water heaters.
