Rockwall Water Heater Installation and Replacement
You’ll most likely require water heater installation while your home is under construction or during renovations. However, it is entirely possible to add a water heater at any time over the course of your home’s life. Whether you are looking for a traditional water heater with tank storage or a tankless variety to provide instant hot water, the installation process is relatively similar.
A plumber will install the necessary piping to supply water to the water heater and to carry the hot water from the water heater into your home. If you are making the switch between tank-based and tankless varieties, your plumber may need to make some adjustments to your existing plumbing, though this is not a difficult task for an experienced technician and won’t add much complexity to the job.
Water heater installation services typically also include water heater replacement. Most water heaters are built to last 10 to 20 years before needing to be replaced. Replacing water heaters is as easy as removing the old system and installing the new one.
Some common signs that you are due to replace your hot water system include:
- Cold or lukewarm water when hot is requested
- Water leaking under or around water heater
- Unusual noises when hot water system is running
- Unexplained increase in energy costs for water heating
- System age of more than 20 years
In addition to ensuring your water heater runs smoothly, replacing your old system with a newer one can also boost energy efficiency, helping you save money on your electric or gas bills, depending on the type of system. Not only that, but newer systems likely won’t need water heater repair for quite a while, so you can save money in that area as well.
At some point, though, your system is likely to need some repairs. Repair service typically starts with an inspection of your hot water system and plumbing to identify any trouble areas so that they can be fixed. In general, tankless water heaters have fewer repair needs than traditional ones, though the initial purchase tends to be more costly.
Types of Water Heaters We Service
Our team provides services for gas, electric, and tankless water heaters of all sizes. We can also help you choose the right system for your home, including trusted brands like Lennox and Amana. Conventional water heaters use a tank to store water in a wide range of gallon capacities, which is maintained at a set temperature by gas or electricity. Tankless water heaters heat water only when needed, making them a more energy-efficient and space-saving solution. We even offer Essency, the world’s first on-demand water heater — a smart hybrid of these options.
