What To Consider When Installing a New Water Heater

  • Type of water heater: There are different benefits to tankless and traditional tank heaters.
  • Sizing: Consider factors like how many people are in your household, peak hot water usage times, and the appliance’s energy efficiency rating.
  • Location: The water heater should be in an area with proper ventilation, accessible for maintenance, and near necessary utilities like water and gas (if applicable).
  • Plumbing & connections: Proper connections are essential to ensure efficiency and zero leaks. Install shut-off valves and consider using flexible water supply lines.
  • Venting & insulation: For gas water heaters, appropriate venting is crucial to remove combustion gases safely. Insulating the hot water pipes and the water heater itself can improve energy efficiency and reduce heat loss.

What Are Signs You Need a New Water Heater?

Rust or Sediment in the Water

Your water heater tank may have accumulated sediment and abrasive minerals over time, especially if you have untreated hard water. Flushing the tank will help reduce the sediment, but if the buildup has started to corrode the tank and it’s leaking, repair won’t help. In this case, replacing the unit is more cost-efficient.

Inconsistent Water Temperature

Is your water heater not providing hot water at the usual temperature? Do you notice inconsistent water temperatures? There’s likely a problem with the heating element. If there is no hot water at all, contact us for an immediate inspection.

Leaking Tank

A leaking water heater tank is often difficult to repair and will require you to replace your entire water heater. If a leaking tank isn’t handled right away, the tank can burst and result in greater water damage.

Choosing the Right Water Heater

To determine the type of water heater that’s best for you, our specialists will need to look at different factors, especially the size of the household and peak times of usage.

For example, with a busy family of four, you’ll want a water heater that can handle the demand. This takes into account the amount of laundry done on a regular basis and the amount of water used during showers and baths.

We determine peak hour demand based on the amount of hot water used during the busiest times in your home. An average shower uses around 10 gallons of hot water. In a family of four, two half-hour showers could use 20 gallons of hot water.

Others in the home might be brushing their teeth, washing their face, or washing the dishes as well, and these will also be taken into account when determining the right size water heater for your home.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
