Water Heater Installation and Replacement
In cases where water heater repair isn’t an option, it is important that you research and find someone who can help you select and install a new water heater. How come? For as long as 10 years, your water heater choice will affect your energy bills.
To ensure steady, reliable hot water without spending more than necessary, you should analyze your options and select a water heater that matches your needs.
The experts at Shane Elmore Plumbing can help you install a new water heater or replace an existing one. Choosing the right system for your family is our expertise, and our technicians will install it for you professionally.
Choosing a New Water Heater
Your first step in installing or replacing a water heater is selecting the right model for your home. To begin with, you’ll need to decide whether you want a tank-style water heater or a tankless one.
In most cases, people use tank water heaters. Water is stored in a tank with a specified capacity, usually between 15 and 60 gallons. As a result, you will always have hot water up to that volume. Obviously, there are drawbacks. When you don’t need hot water, you pay to heat it constantly. When you have guests, for example, you may exceed the capacity of your tank at any given time, leading to shortages of hot water. Their installation costs are low, but their operation costs are high.
Compared to tank water heaters, tankless water heaters only heat water as needed. On your sink or shower, these valves turn on when you turn on the hot water valve. Due to this, less energy is used to heat your water, although you’ll have to wait for it to heat up.
Water Heater Installation Process
The installation process can begin once one of our water heater installation and replacement experts sizes a new system to meet your family’s average hot water needs.
If you are replacing a tank model, we will inspect all connections before removing the old heater. During this process, the gas and water supply will be turned off for safety, so plan it when you can be away from home. Tank models can be installed within a day, but tankless models can take up to two days to install depending on the size of your home and how many fixtures you have.
