Water Heater FAQ: Can I Install My Water Heater On My Own?

Monday, February 18th, 2013 at 1:15 pm

Brooks Plumbing Company has been offering Olympia, WA water heater installation services since 1994. We are dedicated to providing excellent customer service, and we take pride in the work that we do. Installing a water heater should be handled by a professional Olympia plumber. This is not a DIY job for many reasons, namely because you want to make sure that it is installed properly.

There are other reasons that you should only hire a qualified plumber to install your hot water heater. Gas water heaters, for instance, will require services from a certified plumber in Olympia, WA who is licensed to work with gas piping. There are also ventilation concerns that should be addressed by a qualified professional. Never try to install any type of gas appliance on your own. This is mainly for safety reasons, but you also want to make sure that it is installed to provide lasting results.

Professional installations also prevent repair needs. We see broken water heaters all the time that weren’t installed properly, and usually the repair is a result of this. This will cost you more in the long run, since you will most likely have more repair needs further down the road. You may have to even replace your water heater earlier than expected. Always call a professional Olympia plumber to install a new water heater.

In addition to installations, the Olympia WA water heater experts at Brooks Plumbing, Co. can also compare the different models with you and find the most cost-effective solution for your hot water needs. Call us any time to set up a consultation. Contact Brooks Plumbing Company today!
