April 13, 2021 / Adnan Selak

When it comes time to repair or replace a water heater, many homeowners may be slightly intimidated. Many wonder if replacing or repairing a water heater is something that they can do on their own. While some homeowners get by with DIY water heater repair and installment, it’s an incredibly tricky business. If the job isn’t done correctly, it can do a great deal more harm than good. Thankfully, Adams Plumbing and Heating offers customer trusted water heating installment and repairs to homeowners in Evergreen, CO, and surrounding areas.

Can You Install a Water Heater Yourself?

As with anything, homeowners with enough time and patience can certainly learn how to install a water heater on their own. However, there are many reasons why most choose to go with a professional water heater plumber.

Knowing Whether a Water Heater Needs to be Replaced

For one thing, there’s the matter of knowing whether or not the hot water truly needs to be replaced. In many cases, a water heater can be brought back to working order with a simple repair. Without a professional diagnosis, many homeowners may assume that their water heater needs to be replaced when it only needs a simple fixing. In these situations, the homeowner is spending a great deal more money than necessary.

What Else Can Go Wrong?

There’s also the matter of how intricate water heater repair and installment can be. Water heaters involve complicated systems that contain a whole lot of pressure. One wrong move, and you can cause damage to your house that will dwarf the cost of a professional water heater installment. When you work with a professional installer, the liability is on them. As well, their experience will ensure that liability won’t be an issue.

Why Should You Go with a Professional Installer?

Besides the aforementioned reasons, there are many other reasons that homeowners generally choose to go with professional water heater installers.

They Have Knowledge of Different Heating Systems

There are many different types of water heater systems, from gas, to electric, to tankless. A professional installer like Adams Plumbing and Heating will know all of these systems inside and out, and will be able to advise you on your current situation no matter what type of water heating system you have in your house. As well, they’ll be able to advise you if a different type of system might be a better fit for your household needs.

They Have the Right Permits and Paperwork

Besides having the correct experience, tools, and training, professional installers also have the certifications needed to ensure that your water heater complies with the current standards. Oftentimes, homeowners are forced to jump through hoops in order to get the proper paperwork to install a water heater by themselves. This process can take a great deal of time, and can also cost homeowners an arm and a leg! Since the point of most DIY repairs and installments is to save money, this can be counterintuitive.

Professional Installment Is Safe and Cost-Effective

Going with a professional water heater plumber for both repairs and installment is going to be the best decision for most homeowners. While DIY repairs and installment may seem like an easy way out, they can do more harm than good. With a trusted local company like Adams Plumbing and Heating, homeowners can rest assured that they’re getting the best deal possible on their water heater repairs and installments.
