Water Heater Tank Descaling

Updated: May 3

When it comes to maintaining your home's plumbing system, one critical task that often goes overlooked is Hot Water Heater Tank Descaling. Over time, minerals present in water, such as calcium and magnesium, can accumulate inside your water heater, forming a hard, crusty deposit known as scale. This not only reduces the efficiency of your water heater but can also shorten its lifespan, lead to higher energy bills, and affect the quality of your water. 

Fortunately, with expert assistance, descaling your water heater can be straightforward and effective, ensuring it runs smoothly.

Do Tankless Hot Water Heaters Need Descaling?

Tankless hot water heaters, celebrated for their efficiency and longevity, do indeed require descaling to maintain their performance over time. Descaling is a crucial maintenance task for both standard and tankless hot water heaters, that addresses the buildup of minerals inside the heater's heat exchanger coils. These minerals, primarily calcium and magnesium, are naturally present in water and can accumulate on the heater's interior surfaces, reducing its efficiency and potentially leading to premature failure.

The necessity of descaling can vary based on several factors, including the hardness of the water in your area and the amount of hot water your household uses. In regions with hard water, which contains higher concentrations of minerals, tankless water heaters might need to be descaled more frequently. Manufacturers typically recommend performing descaling at least once a year, but the specific interval can vary based on the conditions mentioned above.
