Choosing and Installing the Right New Water Heater

Has your old water heater stopped working? You might want to replace it with a new water heater rather than repair the old one. Choosing a new one and having it installed is something you should consult with a qualified plumber about, especially if it is a gas water heater.

One of the considerations is the size. Typically, water heaters in single family homes have a 40 to 50 gallon capacity. If you use a lot of hot water, you might consider one a bit larger. If you don’t use much hot water, the typical size or maybe a little smaller may be fine. You don’t want one that is too large as that will not be cost effective in either the purchase price or the monthly cost of running it.

Consulting a plumber can help you determine the right size based on your hot water usage. Installing a new water heatershould be done by a plumber to be sure it is installed correctly. An improperly installed unit will not function correctly and could begin leaking soon after. A leaking water heater can cause damage to the room it is in and to the unit itself. Having the unit installed by a professional will save time and money in the long run. It could also ensure the unit remains under warranty.

Another reason to hire a plumber to install your new water heater is that he can give you some tips on maintenance of your new unit so it continues running like new for a long time.
