Water Heater Installation | Cass Plumbing
Water heaters need periodic maintenance but all too often they are just left off in the corner and left alone without maintenance yet still make hot water for us, day in and day out. When they’ve had enough, they quit due to rust and corrosion.
- Water Heaters – The best and easiest way to replace a water heater is to have it done by a plumbing professional. You need to make sure you’re following plumbing codes so calling your local plumbing inspector to find out what municipal permitting requirements and specific criteria they may have is a good idea. Replacing a water heater is not extremely hard, but if done incorrectly can cause big headaches, and back aches!.
When selecting your new water heater it’s easiest to keep the same fuel type, whether gas or electric. You can change the size a bit however. For example, let’s say you had a 40 gallon and want to go to a 50 gallon. That should not be a problem as long as you have clearance between the heater and the wall.
