Water heater installation is one of the most common plumbing services. This can be a very risky project for people who are not properly trained.
First, you are dealing with your water supply. You can easily be left dealing with a flood if either lines to or from the water heater are not sealed properly. This can be costly to repair not to mention dangerous due to the development of mold.
More dangerous than the water line is the gas line. When you install a water heater you also have to connect it to the gas line. This is especially dangerous even with as little as a pin leak. These leaks create a serious fire hazard as well as toxic gas hazard No matter how you slice it, it is not good.
The next most important consideration when installing a new water heater is proper venting. Gas water heaters need input flow, allowing air in for the warming fire to burn. The gas burns, producing toxic fumes. Improper venting is part of what leads to carbon monoxide issues.

Hot Water Heater Replacement in Northridge, CA
Water heaters typically last anywhere from eight to ten years. This may vary depending on how well you maintain the appliance and the composition of your water. If your water has a lot of minerals, especially iron and rust, your tank may not last as long.
When it is time to consider a replacement, call the team at Roberts Plumbing Hyrdo Jet and Rooter. Our team will work to ensure you have hot enough water, and with enough supply to meet your needs.
Depending on your situation, looking at a tankless system may be a benefit. These are generally much more energy efficient than conventional tank-style water heaters. They install at the point of service, whether that is a sink, shower, kitchen or laundry room. Rather than heating an entire tank of water and maintaining the temperature, they heat water as it is needed
They also are less prone to wear due to heavy minerals in your water supply. This means they last longer than their conventional counterparts.
