Types Of Tankless Water Heaters
There are 2 varieties of tankless water heaters: centrally-located entire house heaters, and point-of-use (POU) heaters for individual fixtures (or areas). What you choose depends on the water habits of your family, and the demands of the fixtures involved. Some will certainly opt to install point-of-use heaters to supplement a main unit, usually at components that utilize a lot of hot water or are far away from the central water heater (resulting in long waits for hot water). Whole house heaters work best in smaller to average-sized houses, however multiple units can be installed to satisfy the needs of much larger houses.

Common Tankless Water Heater Problems
Tankless water heaters are a great investment. Not only are they highly efficient, but they can also save you money by heating water only on-demand. However sometimes uncommon, issues can arise if something isn’t working correctly within your water heater. Here are the most common ones
- Mineral Buildup
Regardless of whether traditional or tankless, you need to keep an eye out for mineral buildup inside your water heater. Hard water is water with high mineral content, and the harder your water, the higher the potential for damaging mineral buildup. A tankless water heater flush will take care of this issue
Depending on your tankless water heater's capacity, too many simultaneous hot water applications (such as multiple showers running) can overload your water heater. If this happens, you should reduce the demand for hot water by limiting simultaneous applications, and you may want to consider resetting your unit.
- Air Supply or Exhaust is Blocked
For most tankless water heaters, the display with present an error code to inform you that your air supply or exhaust is blocked. This means your water heater is having issues with either combustion air or venting.
- Ignition Failure
Often, this issue is caused by the gas supply, so check to make sure your propane tank is full before you do anything else. If your gas valve or water valves are not fully opened, this could also cause the ignition to fail.
- Flame Failure
Flame Failure is generally caused by either a gas pressure problem or an electrical issue. Just like ignition failure, you should first rule out simple causes such as a low propane tank or an unpaid gas bill. Other possible causes of flame failure include a gas line that’s too small, regulator failure, combustion issues, venting, and more. Contact technical support for help with troubleshooting the issue further.
