Water Heater Installation in Huntersville – Is your water heater 10 or more years old? Do you often run out of hot water? If you said yes to either of these questions, give us a call at South End Plumbing to ask about water heater installation. While many wait until their water heater fails, the more prudent method is to replace it well before that. This is true for a number of reasons.
First of all, if your water heater is older, it is likely not very efficient when compared to newer models available. Water heater installation could actually save you quite a bit on your utility bill, depending on usage.
Secondly, even if your water heater isn’t very old, it may not be meeting your family’s needs. If you keep running out of hot water, you may need a larger water heater than the one you currently have. Generally, homes are built with just an average-size water heater, and often not the most efficient one, either. It is not uncommon for new homeowners to consider water heater installation almost immediately after having a home built just to gain peace of mind and ensure that their needs will be met. The size needed can vary greatly between families and how their day goes. For example, if there are 4 people in your family and everyone showers back to back or you have to run multiple loads of laundry and dishes each day, a smaller water heater probably won’t handle it satisfactorily. Another reason for upgrading to a larger unit is if you install a large bathtub, which requires much more hot water to fill.
Yet another reason to consider water heater installation is to avoid the messy water damage that happens when a water heater fails. A water heater holds anywhere from 30 to 50 gallons of water, so you can imagine what that much water can do if it escapes the tank. It is also unnerving how a water heater will usually fail at the worst possible time. We do offer 24/7 emergency service for those situations, however, and we never charge extra for service after regular business hours.
