A water heater is a vital piece of any home. If it’s on the fritz (or doesn’t exist), you’ll become well acquainted with icy cold showers, spotty dishes, germy hands, and other such ne’er-do-wells. In any event, when it comes to installation, you might find yourself deliberating: hmm, shall I endeavor the DIY approach, or be patron to a professional?
-Go with the pros.
Read along below and be conclusively convinced that water heater installation should be the exclusive purview of people who do it for a living.
Water heaters can be dangerous to work with, especially if you don’t have the proper training and experience. A professional plumber has the necessary knowledge and tools to install your water heater safely, minimizing the risk of accidents and injuries.
Installing a water heater is not just about making sure it’s hooked up to your pipes. A professional plumber can also ensure that your water heater is set up for maximum efficiency, which can ultimately save you money on your energy bills.
Water heater installation is subject to specific codes and regulations. Hiring a professional ensures that your water heater is installed in compliance with these codes, avoiding any potential legal issues or insurance problems down the road.
If you attempt to install your water heater yourself and something goes wrong, you may well void the manufacturer’s warranty. And there will be no warm bath to console you through this particular tribulation. Hiring a professional ensures everything “done” is covered under warranty, giving you peace of mind should anything need redress in the future.
There’s a unique satisfaction to be gained in tackling some project slightly (or wildly) outside of one’s wheelhouse. When it comes to installing your water heater, though, truly it is best to let the professionals do what they do… best. Not only can they ensure the installation is safe, efficient, up to code and under warranty—by making the hire, you potentially stand to save money in the long run thanks to do a job right, a one-and-done, quick and easy.
