Tank water heaters have a pretty apparent presence in your home—they’re large, noticeable, and usually at least a little noisy. This is the water heater most often found in homes, and because they are so obvious, it’s probably pretty easy to remember that they need to be serviced from time to time.
But what about tankless water heaters in Bellaire, TX? These are certainly less noticeable and less noisy, and therefore easy to forget about, but we urge you not to! Many homeowners don’t realize that tankless water heaters need service, particularly maintenance, as well—and much of this maintenance is actually similar to the maintenance performed on tank water heaters, due to a process called scaling.

Drain clogs are one of those unfortunate things that you will inevitably have to deal with at some time during your homeownership. They’re also one of those things that most homeowners deal with incorrectly. When you have a stubborn drain clog, it’s likely that you reach for some type of store-bought drain cleaner to manage the issue.
