Let us help you decide on the correct unit for your hot water heater installation. The most common reason for needing a new heating unit is due to the natural aging process. As the temperature outside falls, sometimes without warning, the inside of the home can begin to regulate, requiring increased levels of heating. This increase in temperature can require the use of additional electrical outlets and, in severe cases, may require a professional furnace repair. When considering hot water heater replacement, these issues should be given proper importance.
When you need hot water heater replacement, you should first schedule a professional plumber to come to your home and evaluate the issue. If you choose to install a tankless unit, ensure that you provide the correct information for the plumbing in your home, such as type of pipe used, gauge, and diameter. There are certain hot water heater systems that use copper piping, which can be very flammable and must be installed by an experienced professional. When a tankless unit is installed, the pipes are installed inside the walls or in the basement, which is usually the safest place to put it.
A qualified plumber with the proper tools and experience in hot water heater replacement will inform you whether or not a tankless system is an appropriate choice. He will also tell you if you should use a new water heater or simply repair the one you have. If you decide to purchase a tankless unit, you can have it installed professionally, although you should expect to incur some cost. Tankless units may be less expensive to operate, but they require more frequent maintenance and may require you to use more energy to heat your water.
The gas line that feeds your tankless unit may be corroded or damaged, so it may be necessary to repair or replace it. A damaged gas line can lead to a leak, which can be very dangerous. It’s important to realize that a damaged gas line won’t prevent your water heater from working properly. If a gas leak does occur, you should have a professional check the line to make sure it is not damaged. Hot water heater repair or replacement is a complicated matter, so it’s important that you have a qualified professional perform the work.
Although there are a few cons to using a tankless hot water heater, such as higher installation costs and higher energy usage, there are several advantages to choosing this type of system for your home. You can eliminate the need for an outdoor heater in the summertime, allowing you to save on electric bills. A tankless system will save money on your utility bill, even when you don’t use hot water. And, since you won’t have to keep an outdoor heater, you’ll be able to avoid the cleaning and maintenance costs associated with an outdoor unit.
