Water Heater Installation Services

So, you’re ready to take the next step and replace your water heater? Ready to make sure your showers stay steamy, and your energy costs stay low? Hold on just a moment, because we want to make sure that you’ve thought about this installation from all angles. Your water heater is an important part of your home, so this isn’t a choice to just be jumped into. Come along with us as we go over some key factors to consider before scheduling water heater installation services.

Tip #1 – Know What You Need

The first and most important thing to consider is what exactly your home and family need from a water heater. Got a baseball-team-size family with lots of water needs? You’ll need a bigger capacity for your piece. Is your home smaller and you need to save some space? You may like a tankless water heater. The choices are yours, and there are a lot of options.

Tip #2 – Consider Energy Efficiency

Another big thought is energy efficiency. Everyone wants to save a dollar and maybe save the planet, so consider the fuel type your new water heater will use. Consider the electrical impact on your home’s grid. How will your water heater affect the environment? How will it impact your bills? Know what you want and need, then find a unit that matches.

Tip #3 – Maintenance and Upkeep

Now that you’ve considered those first two things, let’s think about the work that will go into keeping the new unit up and running. Will there be a warranty that covers maintenance? Can you set up the right annual check by a pro? Are you able to do some minor regular checks on your own? This isn’t a one-and-done project, but a long-term investment.

Tip #4 – Safety First

So, this is an aspect that not everyone thinks of: safety and legal concerns. Do you need to have any permits to change out your water heater? Is the unit you’re looking at safe for your home? Is there enough ventilation if your new unit requires that? Do you have safe gas/electrical lines to connect to? These questions are highly important to answer before you get started.

Tip #5 – Pick the Right Installer

Once you’ve got your answers to these questions above, now it’s time for the next big step: picking your installer. If you have the technical know-how and skill to do the install yourself, then get on it! But if not, then you want to find a pro that is fully qualified, licensed, and who takes the time to get to know you and your needs. Ask around for recommendations and do your research. This is not a project to just shuffle the options and pick a card; you need to know who you’re getting into business with.

Now that you know just what to deep dive into before you get your water heater installed, you’re ready to get that on the schedule! Remember, Loyalty Plumbing LLC will always have your back. Check us out for any and all plumbing questions and concerns.
