That crusty buildup on your faucets, shower heads, and dishwasher is lime scale buildup.  It forms when water passes through your fixtures, and reduces the functionality and efficiency of your household appliances. Conventional water heaters have been known to accumulate as much as 20 lbs of scale buildup over their lifetime. With the application of heat, scale buildup occurs more readily, accelerating the process and causing more problems.  A conventional water heater loses more than 2% efficiency per year because of this buildup, which acts as an insulator preventing proper heat exchange. A tankless water heater is just as susceptible, but a simple built-in system allows the buildup to be removed, returning the water heater to its original efficiency.

We offer tankless cleanings and recommend you have your system flushed once a year to maintain its highest efficiency.  This is a relatively quick process taking about an hour to complete.  In addition to a flush, we inspect the system’s igniter, flame sensor, fan, and venting system to ensure everything is in tip top shape.

Go Tankless services the Greater Toronto Area, including Newmarket, Aurora, Bradford.  If you have any questions about our service area call us and we will discuss your location.
