About Water Heater Installations

Water heater installations are quite simple when handled by professionals such as licensed plumbers. After all, a licensed plumber will know exactly where and how to install your new water heater properly. A water heater installation should only take about 2 to 3 hours if your plumber has no issues. The installation involves removing the old water heater, moving the water heater to the selected location, and connecting the water heater system. 

You might be wondering if you can install a water heater by yourself, and the simple answer is yes, you can. There are even quite a few how-to guides on installing water heaters. 


However, it is always a better idea to go with a licensed plumber because the last thing you want is to make a mistake which can lead to causing damage to your home. This might result in you having to pay much more money than you would have had to if you called a plumber to do the job.

Tips for New Water Heater Owners 

  • Choosing a water heater – when choosing which water heater to go whether, choose the type of heater that has all the features you will require in your home. 

  • The size of the water heater is one of the most important factors when deciding which water heater will be best for your home. Before selecting the size of the water heater, it is important to keep in mind how many people there are in your home and how much hot water you will regularly require.

  • Repairs when needed – after your water heater has been installed for a while, it might need a few repairs over a completely normal time. However, you should always try to get your water heater repaired as soon as possible to avoid any further damage.

  • Regular maintenance – it is important that your water heater has regular maintenance, which will also help increase the machine’s lifespan.

Types of Water Heaters 

Before a water installation, you must know about the different types of water heaters so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Five types of water heaters are most commonly used this includes: 

1. Conventional Tank Water Heater

A conventional tank water heater is usually the most common choice of water heater in many homes. This heater consists of a tank that heats the water and stores this water. This type of water heater does not require an electric motor as it works by having a burner which sits at the bottom of the tank and heats the water in the tank.

2. Hybrid Water Heater (Heat Pump Water Heater) 

The hybrid water heater is the more energy-efficient type of water heater and uses approximately two times less energy required than a conventional water heater. Unlike most heaters, this water heater does not generate heat directly and works by moving heat from one stop to another by using electricity. 

3. Tankless Water Heater 

Tankless water heaters, which are also known as instant-on water heaters, work by immediately heating water as it travels in the device. The only water that is stored in this water heater is the water in the exchanger coil. This is one feature that makes this water heater different from others, which usually store the water in their tanks.

4. Condensing Water Heater

The condensing water heater is another water heater that focuses on being energy efficient as well as being more heavy-duty. The condensing water heater utilises condensing technology to increase its energy efficiency by approximately 15%. 


Water is stored in the water heater, which is then heated up with a condensing heat exchanger making the water ready to use at any time. 

5. Solar Water Heater 

A solar water heater is another great heater choice if you are interested in the more energy-efficient water heater options. This type of water heater will need solar panels (solar thermal collectors) on or around your home, which will collect the energy from the sunlight to heat the water.

I would highly recommend At Your Maintenance. The electrician who came to our place (I believe his name was Rylan) was very professional and thorough. He did a great job. And even better, he came exactly when he said he would. I will definitely be using this company again. Thank you.
