As a local Columbus water heater installation business, people often ask us about tankless water heaters and what their appeal is. Tankless water heaters are much different from traditional water heaters in both size and function. Because of this, most homeowners are not very familiar with tankless water heater technology. Luckily, our team of water heater specialists is here to help.

At Only Water Heaters, we openly advocate for the installation of tankless water heaters. Not only are they more trustworthy and built to last longer than most traditional water heaters, but they are also designed to be much more energy efficient — saving you money in the long run.

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...

That said, before you schedule an appointment, you’ll probably want to decide whether you’d like a gas water heater or an electric water heater.

At Only Water Heaters, we provide the Columbus area with unmatched water heater repairs, installations, and inspections. So if you’re looking for a new water heater and a team of experienced technicians to install it for you, we urge you to contact us today!

All too often homeowners find themselves thinking “Hey, I could take care of this home improvement product myself and save some money.”

At Only Water Heaters, your local water heater installation professionals in Columbus, we strongly urge you to never consider installing a new water heater by yourself — unless you have professional training, that is. Instead, maybe stick to DIY projects like painting the fence or sealing the deck.

Below, we have listed a few reasons why you should always call the professionals at Only Water Heaters for your water heater installation needs.
