When it is time to get a new water heater, you may wonder about installing it yourself or when to consider professional Long Island water heater installation. If you weigh which is better, it is always the best choice to go with a professional and here are a few reasons why.
Fast and Easy
Sure, you might be able to do a water heater on your own, but it is worth the investment to have a professional. There may be problems with installation that you are not sure how to fix and there is always the hassle of picking up the right water heater for your needs, transporting it home, getting it into the house, and then getting the old one out. When you call a professional, you get to sit back and relax knowing that everything is up to code and you do not have to deal with the hassle or the mess.
A water heater that has been in use for more than a decade, there is always the chance that there are equipment or code changes you need to be aware of. In this case, you cannot simply swap the old one out and the new one in. For instance, a new water heater may need venting changes, a drain pan, pressure relief valve drain lines, or temperature relief valve drain lines. Anything that needs changing takes what may be a potential simple job to one that is a nightmare.
When you call a professional, you do not have to worry about finding the right size water heater for your needs. Not only that but a licensed professional will be able to tell you about certain products you are not aware of and then help recommend changes to fit specific needs such as energy efficiency, emissions that are up to local code, quick recovery, and anything else that you are unaware of. Keep in mind that just because a certain water heater size was already in your home when you moved in does not mean it is capable of handling the needs your family has. Having a professional in your home is the perfect opportunity to find out if you can get better energy efficiency or if you have a tank that meets your family’s size requirements.

A licensed professional not only pull any necessary permits but also takes care of the inspection so that any local building codes are met and the water heater operates safely. You also have the peace of mind that if there are any issues after installation that you can call someone to come out and help.
