Signs That Your Tankless Water Heater Needs Repair

If you’ve chosen to have a tankless water heater installed on your property, it’s probably due to their high-efficiency and effectiveness at providing you with hot water throughout your home. Tankless systems are much more capable than their storage tank counterparts of handling periods when you’re away, as they aren’t as susceptible to heat loss and water waste.

Tankless water heaters help numerous homeowners throughout the country save a lot of energy, which equates to lower utility bills. However, tankless water heaters are not immune to repair needs. When these needs crop up, you need a team on your side to get the system back to its full functionality. We are that team. Of course, it also helps to know some of the signs that you do in fact need repairs. Keep reading to learn more.

No Hot Water

This may seem apparent, but must be said anyway. If your faucets are only providing you with cold or lukewarm water, then there’s probably an issue with the heating array. Or you may have a problem with the fuel source, whether you have a gas-powered system or an electric system, like a loose wire or a clogged line. No matter the cause, our professionals can help resolve it.


Leaks in a tankless water heater are never a good thing. Not only is it inconvenient, but leaking water can damage the inside components of the system, leading to even more problems than what you started with. This is, however, a fairly simple problem that a trained technician can resolve, so give us a call today if you notice puddles or any other sign of a leak near the water heater.

Strange Noises

Have you heard what sounds like a gurgling or bubbling sound? Or how about a groaning or hissing noise? Whatever sounds your tankless water heater is making that can’t be associated with the normal functioning of the system is something that requires a service call. So if you do notice an odd noise, shut your water heater down and call for repairs as soon as you can.
