Water heater installation is one of the most important home improvement projects you might have to undertake at some point. Many water heaters have an average life expectancy of about a decade which means that you’ll need to consider a replacement if you stay in a home long enough.
Important as water heater installation is, it comes with plenty of challenges and important considerations. Done without adequate preparation, expertise and research, this is one of the projects that could easily cause plenty of regrets. If you have a Spokane water heater that needs installation, give us a call today!
The water heater market is full of products varying in sizes and brands. The size and brand that would be ideal for one home might prove totally inappropriate for another and you need to make sure that the heater you choose will be right for your home. Costs also vary widely and you need to research the market to find the product that fits your budget.
One of the main considerations you need to take into account before making a decision on the heater to install is whether you’ll purchase a tank heater, a tank-less one or a hybrid heater. There are distinguishing characteristics between the different kinds of heaters. If you chose a tank water heater, for example, you might be attracted to it by the fact that it’ll be much cheaper than the other two types. Tank heaters are also beloved by some people because they hold large amounts of water.
People who choose tank-less water heaters are usually attracted to them because of their energy efficiency. These heaters only heat water when you need it. The heat loss that tank water heaters are inevitably prone to is overcome with a tank-less water heater. Hybrid heaters have even greater energy efficiency. As you can expect, tank-less and hybrid water heaters are pricier than tank heaters.
From the foregoing, it is quite evident that the choice of water heater can prove quite challenging. Yet what might prove truly challenging when the job is not done by a pro is the installation.
Regardless of what you might have read online about how easy water heater installation might be, it is important to remember that it is extremely dangerous work when handled by an untrained person. When you are installing an electric water heater, for example, you need adequate knowledge to ensure that the installation is done correctly and does not compromise your safety. The situation is no different when you install a gas water heater. If you are not careful or lack adequate knowledge, it is possible to have gas leaks after the installation has been done and this is the kind of gamble you do not wish to take.
Improperly installed gas water heaters as well as tank-less heaters are also likely to lead to the release of carbon monoxide. This mainly happens when the water heater is not vented adequately. Carbon monoxide emissions are certainly to be avoided because this colorless, odorless and invisible gas accounts for many fatalities every year. These are problems you can avoid by entrusting your water heater installation to a pro plumber.
Other benefits of pro installation
Water heaters require regular maintenance to ensure that they are operating as efficiently as envisaged by the manufacturers. At the installation stage you’ll have created a working relationship with a pro who will come to your aid when you heater needs maintenance.
Pro water heater installation gives you peace of mind as you know that it has been done correctly and does not compromise your safety. Moreover, pro installation takes just a fraction of the time that you would take if you were to do the installation yourself.
