What Type of Water Heater Installation Do You Need?
There are several different factors you should consider before purchasing a new water heater. The most important decision will be choosing whether you want to install a conventional storage tank unit or a tankless model. Traditional tank-style units are relatively inexpensive, and they last for an average of 10-12 years. When you turn on a tap, water is pulled from the tank and replaced with cold water. Even when there is no demand, the water must be reheated every time the temperature falls below the thermostat threshold. Also, once the tank is drained, no hot water will be available until the unit is filled back up and heated again.
Tankless water heaters use 30-50 percent less electricity than storage tank models. They also provide an endless supply of hot water since they instantly heat water on demand. These units are much smaller and are usually hung on a wall. The additional space can be used for storage or other purposes. If you decide to replace water heater with tankless technology, it’s important to work with a professional plumber to ensure you pick a model with sufficient capacity to satisfy your entire family during peak demand.
The Water Heater Installation Process
Once you’ve chosen the water heater that best fits your needs, you’ll want to have it installed by our trained and certified plumbers. We’ll drain and remove your old unit and haul it away. If it’s a gas water heater, we’ll verify the flue is clear and make the final connections. We look for a blue flame with yellow tips to confirm the burners are operating efficiently. Electric models are connected to the power source and tested to ensure all the components are operating properly.
Tankless water heaters may require more time to install depending on the size of your plumbing pipes and electric capacity. Manufacturers recommend that you have a professional plumbing contractor set up these complex units. Many homes are not capable of supporting the power and fuel requirements for tankless water heaters without some modifications to the gas or electric service.
