Proper Ways to Care for Your Tankless Water Heater
A tankless water heater is a reliable addition to many homes, providing a steady hot water supply when needed. It works hard to meet the hot water requirements of your household, so the least you can do is make sure it stays in optimal condition. Read on as A.M. Plumbing & Rooter shares a few tips on keeping your tankless water heater running smoothly.
Flush the System Regularly
Over time, mineral deposits can build up in your tankless water heater’s internal components, affecting its efficiency. It’s essential to flush the system annually or more frequently if you have hard water. This process involves using a descaling solution to remove accumulated scale and debris, then connecting a hose to the unit’s drain valve and running it until the water runs clear. Neglecting this part of proper maintenance can eventually lead to the need for water heater repair in Carlsbad, CA.
Check and Clean the Air Intake Filter
Not all tankless water heaters have an air intake filter, but those that do will require routine cleaning to keep it functioning effectively. This filter works to prevent dust and dirt from entering the unit. If it gets too dirty, your water heater can stop working. Make sure to clean the filter regularly according to manufacturer instructions.
Professional Water Heater Maintenance
While homeowners can perform a couple of maintenance tasks on their own, scheduling professional maintenance for your water heater is still crucial. A certified technician can inspect the system for potential issues and ensure everything functions correctly.

This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
