Water heaters and filters are necessary for households that use water for more than a warm shower in the morning. Hot water is used for dishwashers, washing machines, and – of course – in the bathroom. Without water heaters and the filters that clean the water inside of them, you'd likely be stuck bathing in colder water with more toxins or cooking with water that hasn't been cleaned. To avoid this, we recommend keeping up-to-date with your water heater and filter maintenance annually.
Water Heater Tank
Water heater tanks are a traditional form of water heaters that store large amounts of water in a tank and heat a given amount once the switch for hot water has been turned on. Water heater tanks allow for a set amount of water to be heated and consumed, but once the water has been used, it is gone until more water in the tank can be heated and filtered. While this seems like a process to obtain hot water, traditional water heaters are actually more affordable from the get-go and don't require connection to a natural gas line like tankless water heaters. Water heater tanks are suggested for those that don't have a high demand for hot water but simply use it in their household to keep their family comfortable and their appliances operational when needed.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters provide hot water on-demand and with an endless supply. They’re a more modernized version of the traditional water heater and can be more expensive than their tanked counterparts. However, since there is no larger tank for the water to be stored in, tankless water heaters don’t suffer from the same problems that tank water heaters do, including hard water buildup. Tankless water heaters are also beneficial in providing more efficient water sources and don’t use as much energy as traditional water heaters.
Water Heater Filters
Water heater filters are added to both tank and tankless heaters to eliminate toxins from the water that the heat was unable to. This typically includes hard metals and minerals that weren’t eliminated during the heating process, either because the temperatures did not allow for it to or there are metals that the heat cannot rid the water of. Water heater filters should be changed or cleaned often to ensure that the heated water delivered is always fresh and clean and free from debris and toxins.
Water Heater Cleaning
From time to time, your water heater will need occasional cleaning to avoid corrosion and buildup from the chemicals and minerals in hard water. These minerals, like calcium, can result in a white crusted layer of debris that lingers at the bottom of the water heater and can clog or reduce the quality of water that's transported throughout the water system in your home or property. Water heater cleaning is done using professional techniques that see the draining of the water heater and cleaning it out using our tested cleaning products that remove dirt and debris with ease.
