Why You Should Hire a Plumbing Professional to Install a Water Heater

May 18, 2023

Water heaters are some of the most important appliances in our home. Without the efficiency of water heaters, we would have to manually heat our water in order to effectively wash our clothes, take hot showers, and clean our dishes.

Additionally, water heaters promote temperature regulation and help us conserve water and energy. With so many benefits — and a hefty price tag to match — water heaters must be properly installed and maintained to realize these gains.

That’s why it’s important to hire a plumbing professional to install your home’s water heater. From helping you select the best size and type of water heater to reducing the risk of installation mistakes, enlisting the reliable services of a certified plumber can lead to long-term savings on energy and costs. Here, we discuss the top reasons homeowners should hire a professional to install a water heater.

Recommendations for Best Type of Water Heater

From traditional water heaters to more modern tankless models, there are a lot of options. A plumbing pro understands what to consider in choosing the best size and type of water heater for your home, such as the size of your home and the number of people who live there.

Access to Best Brands & Models

Not all of the best brands and models of water heaters are sold in retail stores. A plumbing professional may be able to provide homeowners access to those exclusively sold to installers. This can get you closer to the right water heater for your home with professional insights.

Permit Processing

Permits are required for water heaters when you decide to do it yourself or hire a certified plumber. However, licensed pros can secure the necessary paperwork with an understanding of local building codes in a way that homeowners cannot.

Safe Installation

Different water heaters are upheld by different safety standards. Professional plumbers have the expertise and experience to perform the installation according to all proscribed guidelines, ensuring a safe installation the first time.

Convenient for Repairs

When it comes time to invest in water heater repairs, you already have a trusted plumber to call. Whether it’s broken down and needs to be replaced or it’s in need of seasonal maintenance repairs, your go-to professional will ensure quality repairs whenever they’re needed.

Protection Against Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

When installing products that use natural gas, there is always a risk for triggering carbon monoxide leaks. Plumbing professionals know how to avoid the installation mistakes that could lead to this odorless gas from being released and causing a medical emergency.
