Today, many people take on home do-it-yourself projects in an attempt to save a few bucks and perhaps learn a new skill in the process.  If you need water heater installation, you may be tempted to do a quick internet search and try to go through the process on your own. But if you want to ensure proper operation and maximum efficiency, this is not the time for a D.I.Y. project. Let’s take a look at a few major reasons to leave water heater installation up to Cape Coral plumbing professionals like Avis Plumbing & Air Conditioning.

The Proper Size

Choosing the right water heater involves making some complicated calculations about the flow rate and temperature rise that you’ll need to accommodate in your home. You may also need to know about the peak hour demand and account for the number of people in the home who tend to use hot water at once. These calculations come much more easily to a professional who is experienced with calculating load size. A unit that is too small won’t get the job done, while a larger unit may use a lot of energy to run, costing you more both initially as well as on your monthly electric bills.

No Mess

Of course, storage tank water heaters are very large and water heater installation may simply be too complicated for someone with little experience. Professional technicians remove your older water heater and dispose of it for you, so you don’t have to deal with the mess. And a professional can ensure that water fills the tank without leaking into your home and possibly damaging the foundation.

Fewer Repairs

Finally, a professionally installed system is simply less likely to need repairs as frequently as a unit installed by an amateur. Professionals make sure the temperate and pressure valves are working as they should, the heating element is functioning, and that no loose components will lead to leaks. When a professional sets up and tests your unit, you can be sure that you won’t have problems with your system too early on in its life.

If you need water heater installation service in Southwest Florida, make sure an experienced Fort Myers plumber from Avis is there to help pick out and inspect your new system so it can last for years to come.

    Thanks for sharing your article about water heater installation. I totally agree with what you said about how a professionally installed water heater will less likely to need frequent repairs. This is because a professional installer made sure that water heaters are installed according to a certain standard. My parent just moved to a new place, and they are looking for a new water heater to be installed in their house. For me, it’ll be best to hire a professional because you’ll have the guarantee that the job will be done right the first time. I will make sure to tell my parent to consider hiring a professional.

    I like that you provided the benefits of hiring a professional to install your water heater system such as the fact that you wouldn’t have to worry about frequent repairs in the future. A professional contractor stands by the quality of their product and service, and they would even provide you with a warranty for it. If I were to look for a contractor to replace or install my water heater, I would make sure to keep this in mind. Thanks.

    You got my attention when you said that by hiring a professional for water heater installation, you will be sure that you can prevent frequent repairs because they make sure that there won’t be problems on your water heater too early on in its life. This is something that I will be sure to remember because I bought a new water heater that I’m looking to install, and I want to make sure that it will last for a long time because cost-effectiveness is my top priority.

    It sure is nice to know that one good reason for letting the professionals handle the installation of your water heater is that they are experienced when it comes to the calculation of load size, as choosing a tank that is too small can cause your electric bills to spike up. My wife and I need a water heater in our new home, as it is quite cold in our new place. Since we don’t have knowledge about this computation, we will let the experts handle this instead so that the right size of water heater will be installed.
