Why You Should Always Hire a Professional to Install Your Water Heater

Two decades ago, if someone with limited technical experience said that they were going to install their own water heater their friends and family would likely talk them out of it. Now, however, people believe that they can improvise and install their own appliances because they can find a YouTube tutorial online that can walk them through the process.

At Only Water Heaters, your local Columbus water heater professionals, we strongly advise you to never try to install a water heater by yourself without prior experience. While the DIY professional directing the YouTube video might seem like they have confidence in your installation skills, there are many things that could go wrong if you do not have the proper tools or experience.

Rather than installing the water heater by yourself and risking damaging the appliance or creating even worse issues, we urge you to contact our water heater installation team. Continue reading to learn why you should always leave water heater installation to the pros.

Experience Matters

When you purchase a new water heater, it is more than likely that there is some sort of note in the instructions that tells you to have the appliance installed professionally. Why? Well, if you want something done right it makes sense to have someone who has installed hundreds of water heaters take care of installation.

At Only Water Heaters, our team of hot water heater installation professionals has seen just about every brand and style of water heater — meaning that we have the experience and knowledge to install your new water heater quickly and efficiently. If you choose to install the water heater yourself, it will likely take you a very long time with no guarantee that you will be successful. Save yourself some time and money by scheduling a water heater installation appointment today.

Safety Is Important

If you have a gas-operated water heater, we urge you to never attempt the installation by yourself. Gas water heaters must be installed carefully to ensure that all connections are properly sealed and that there are proper venting systems in place.

Gas water heaters have a constant flow of natural gas — meaning that if there is an improperly sealed connection that natural gas will leak into your home causing extreme risk. Even further, if the room is not properly vented, gas can build — essentially turning your home into a disaster waiting to happen. All it takes is a small spark and a catastrophic event could occur.


We Back Our Work

If you don’t install your new water heater properly and it ends up breaking as a result, you will be left with a big bill. If you have our experienced water heater installation team install it, however, you are protected in the event of any water heater failures — because we stand by our work and also specialize in water heater repairs.

In short, if you want your water heater installed correctly, we urge you to contact our Columbus water heater installation team. So what are you waiting for? Avoid unnecessary risks and contact us today.
