Water Heater Installation in Houston
Need a new water heater installed in Houston?
Sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye.
One of those times shouldn’t be when you need to replace your water heater. Make this difficult time easier by calling the water heater installation in Houston experts at Nick’s Plumbing and Sewer Services.
Today’s water heaters are far more energy efficient than those installed as little as ten years ago. Newer storage tank water heaters are designed to use less energy than their older counterparts, and are designed to waste less heat. A new energy-efficient water heater will help save you some money in energy costs each month.
Tankless water heaters do not require continuous temperature maintenance to ensure your hot water supply. They only heat the water as it’s needed, unlike storage tank water heaters that require continuous maintenance of the temperature of the water in the tank. Tankless water heaters are a little more expensive to purchase and install, but the energy savings in the long run, particularly for a busy household, will add up quickly.
Even if your water heater is only a few years old, you may want to consider a water heater installation in Houston before things go wrong. Supply and return pipes can begin to corrode and leak, and in units 10 years and older, rust becomes an issue, which can lead to leaks. Gas fittings and electrical connections age and wear out over time as well, all of which can lead to the decision to replace your current water heater.
Federal law stipulates that new water heaters must be installed with their pilot element at least 18” off the ground. Texas law also requires a water heater to be installed by a licensed plumber. It is important when planning for your new water heater installation in Houston to call Nick’s Plumbing and Sewer Services to hire a plumbing company that can handle your water heater installation from start to finish.
