Water Heater Installation in Kannapolis – Water heater installation is something most homeowners do once a decade or so. Because of this, and the nature of the water heater, many people correctly choose to have their appliance installed by a professional. Professional water heater installation takes out any guesswork or insecurity you might have, and will ensure that the work is done quickly, accurately, and with a minimum amount of trouble to you and your home or business.
Determining the type of water heater you’ll need is the first step in water heater installation. If installing in a new construction or as part of a larger remodeling or addition, the type of water heater will depend on its intended use. Gas and electric water heaters are both very common, as well as newer hybrid heat pump water heaters. For certain special demands, tankless and point-of-use water heaters are also popular, easy to install, and more cost-effective over the long term than a traditional tank water heater. You’ll need to take into account the amount of hot water needed over a given day, week, and month, as well as the cost of energy in your area and the availability of certain heat sources. This will help you determine the size of water heater you need, especially if your water use and/or hot water demand have changed or are about to change.
Once you’ve made your decision, you’ll want someone skilled in installing these appliances. Having a water inlet in close proximity to electricity or gas heat can pose some risks, especially if the connections between the water and gas input lines and the water heater are not made properly or in the recommended order.
