Tankless Water Heater
More than 50 percent of today’s appliances for homes contain electronic circuit boards. These includes tank and tankless water heaters that are usually plug into an outlet without any protection from electrical surges.
Tankless water heaters in particular are nearly computerized these days with a lot of sensitive electronic components inside them. Many tankless hot water heaters throughout Baton Rouge were damaged from electrical surges during Hurricane Isaac. Generally, damage due to a power surge event is not covered by water heater warranty. Homeowner insurance might also have appliance exclusion. For these reasons, today’s modern home needs surge protection as one of its most important update.
With the use of a whole house surge protector, all your 120Volt and 240Volt circuits are protected which encompasses your 120 Volt and 240 Volt household electronics like dishwasher, water heater, oven, microwave, timers and other electronic device that do not have surge protection including breakers and wires. It is Mock Plumbing’s recommendation to always plug your tankless hot water into a good surge protector.
