Tankless Water Heater Repair

In many cases, water heaters can be repaired. Our water heater repair specialists can make an assessment of your water heater based on age, condition, and other factors. This will help you make the most economical decision and one that meets the needs of your family.

Sometimes, heating elements don’t heat water properly because they need to be flushed and cleaned. As recommended by the manufacturer, R.J. Tilley can flush and clean tankless heaters to restore heating capability and improve efficiency.

Common Tankless Water Heater Problems

  • Water Leak
  • Mineral Buildup
  • Exhaust Blockage
  • Pipe Issues
  • Electrical Issues
  • Thermostat Failure

Tankless Water Heater Installation

Tankless Water Heaters allow homeowners to save money on energy costs and “go green” in the process. These water heaters heat water only as it is needed, providing more energy efficiency than a traditional water heater. Tankless water heaters are also built to last longer than traditional storage tanks with a life expectancy of about 15- 20 years.


Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

We offer tankless water heater maintenance to keep your water heater running safely and efficiently. Regular maintenance of your water heater is highly recommended. It can help prevent unexpected problems and extend the life of your unit.
