Water Heater InstallationIf your water heater starts leaking, it’s time for a new water heater. Water heaters only last for about 8-15 years, so it’s fairly common to need a water heater installation. Some homeowners are interested in doing their own water heater installation, but hiring a professional is the safest way to get your new water heater up and running in your home.

While the installation itself is not terribly complicated, it’s important to remember that if you have an electric water heater, you are working with a great deal of electricity and run the risk of electrocution or an electrical fire. Similarly, if you have a gas-powered water heater, you run the risk of a gas leak that could cause catastrophic effects if mistakes are made during installation. The risks are simply too great if you aren’t experienced with this type of installation.

A water heater installation often requires a permit, and there needs to be a plan in place to make sure the installation is done safely and will be up to code when the work is done.
