30 Reasons Why You Should Have a Professional Install a Water Heater: #11-15

Posted by Butter Plumbing

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been running down a number of reasons why you should always trust a professional plumbing service with your water heater. Water heaters are designed to last a long time, which means they can catch you by surprise when they suddenly need to be replaced. Here’s Reasons #11-15 to make sure you rely on a professional to do the job.

11)      Professionals Know How to Size the Unit. Water heaters need to be properly sized, both in terms of physical size and (more importantly) in terms of the heating power they give your water supply. Professionals have the experience to make those calculations properly, ensuring that your new water heater is properly sized.

12)      A New Water Heater Needs Proper Venting. Venting is essential to the proper functioning of your water heater: allowing potentially harmless gases and exhaust to leave your home safely. Professionals know how to ensure that the new water heater is properly vented.

13)      We Install the T&P Valve Right. The temperature and pressure relief valve is used to relieve pressure in the tank, which prevents a rupture or explosion. A professional service will ensure that the T&P valve of your new system is properly installed and ready to go.

14)      We Understand the Proper Handling of Gas. Most water heaters in the area are gas-fed, which can be quite dangerous if it leaks into your home. Professionals can handle the pipe fittings and other key components with the confidence that comes with experience.

15)      We Use Proper Materials. Components like bolts, pipes and electric lines need to be selected carefully in order to allow for a proper installation. A professional knows which components are best suited to which water heater.
