Water heaters are an essential part of the home and make it possible to heat water for showers, laundry, and household chores. The keys to a long-lasting and reliable water heater include choosing the right type of water heater, having it installed properly, and finding a service technician to help you maintain and repair your system.
Access to comfortable, sanitary water begins before you even bring a water heater into your Indianapolis home. It starts with choosing the right type of water heater. Options include gas, electric, or tankless – and each has different advantages. At Northern Comfort Systems, we can help you choose the water heater right for your home, then install it properly once you make your decision.
Installing a water heater does not take much time, but it is a task most homeowners prefer to leave to a professional. The installation process includes several steps and requires that you connect the water heater to the proper energy source. There are also a number of safety concerns – burns are common for those attempting installation without a great deal of experience or training. And of course, you need to consider removal of the old water heater unit.
Luckily, a water heater install is not something that costs a great deal money. There are often discounts on installation costs when you opt to have the water heater installed at the time of purchase. When shopping for your water heater, make sure you ask about installation procedures and costs.
Once you have selected a new water heater and completed the water heater install, you need to ensure your new investment is longlasting. The average water heater has a lifespan of 10 to 20 years, which varies based on a few factors, including the model. Standard maintenance can help to extend the life of your water heater and ensure it runs efficiently.
It’s best to work with the same company throughout the life of your water heater, from the time you make your purchase and install it, through maintaining it and eventually replacing it. When we take care of your equipment long term, we know the history and the usage, and make adjustments accordingly.
