Mistakes Made During a Water Heater Installation

Mistakes Made During a Water Heater Installation

Today, we’ll be discussing some of the ways mistakes can happen during a water heater installation.

We use heated water all of the time at home. It’s used for washing our dishes and clothing, as well as bathing, but there will come a time when you need a new water heater. When getting a water heater installation, you need to be sure the installation is done properly. However, there are mistakes that can be made during the installation process. Today, we’ll be discussing some of the ways mistakes can happen during a water heater installation.

Not Getting the Right Size of Water Heater

Sometimes, a mistake can happen before the installation even starts. It’s important to know how big your water heater should be. The size you pick will depend on the size of your home, and how much hot water you typically use. As an example, for homes with 2.5 baths and around 3 residents will typically need a water heater that’s about 50 gallons. The water heater you need will become bigger when you have more residents at home.

Installing a Water Heater in a Prohibited Area

Water heaters are useful for many areas of your house, but they aren’t allowed to be installed wherever you’d like. For this reason, it’s good to work with a water heater installation company. They will know all of the applicable regulations regarding where water heaters are allowed to be installed. This’ll prevent you from running into legal trouble down the road.

Getting Your Water Heater Installed Without a Permit

Any water heater installation has to be done with a plumbing permit, and an inspection must be done once the installation has been completed. This is done to ensure that the installation was done correctly. This is another reason that working with a water heater installation company is a smart move. Professionals already have the permits that are needed to perform the installation properly, so you know you won’t have to redo the installation later.
