Water heater technology has made significant advancements in the past several years, from efficient whole-home tankless systems to new standards for storage water heater construction. If it’s time to consider replacement of your home’s water heater, understanding your options and what to expect during water heater installation in Omaha will make this process a smooth and easy one with rewards you will enjoy for years to come.
Choosing a New Water Heater
New water heater installation is the perfect time to reassess your home’s hot water needs. Particularly if you bought your home with your current water heater already in place, it may be too large or too small to deliver the right amount of hot water for your specific everyday usage habits. Regardless of whether you choose a storage tank or tankless water heater, you’ll want to match the capacity of the appliance to the volume of hot water you expect to use in your home daily throughout the appliance’s lifetime. Other considerations to take into account when selecting a new water heater include the appliance’s physical size, its initial price and long-term operating costs, and the fuel sources available to your home. If you currently have a gas water heater installed, it may be much easier to replace it with another gas-fueled system than it is to switch from an electric water heater to a system that requires a new gas line in your home prior to water heater installation. Additionally, purchasing a water heater with the greatest energy efficiency you can afford will offer the best payoff in terms of lowering your long-term water heating costs. If you need help evaluating your hot water usage and determining the best type of water heating system for your home, your Omaha plumber can examine your needs and make suggestions to help you choose the right appliance for installation.
Scheduling Professional Installation and Maintenance
After you have selected your new water heater, it’s time to schedule professional installation. Having your plumber perform water heater installation is the very best way to ensure system efficiency, longevity, and safety; furthermore, professional water heater installation is fast, easy, and stress-free. You can expect installation to take approximately two to three hours, including 60 minutes to properly remove your old system and 60-90 minutes to position and connect the new appliance. After installation, your plumber will also check all connections and ensure the appliance is working properly before he considers the job finished. Your plumber can also make recommendations at this time for regular water heater maintenance, which will keep your new water heater in good shape so it can deliver the energy savings and high-quality performance you expect throughout its lifetime.
