Your water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home. Don't believe us? How much hot water do you use in a day? Probably a decent bit. Whether for washing dishes or taking a relaxing shower, hot water is a luxury that many of us have come to take for granted. Well, without a quality hot water heater that luxury can become unreliable at best and unavailable at worst.

A water heater is a complex machine and one that is placed under a lot of stress during operation. Storage tank water heaters, the most common kind in the country by far, store anywhere from 10 to 100+ gallons of water at all times. All that water is kept heated day and night so that it is available whenever you need it. This takes a lot of effort on the part of the water heater, and proper installation is key to helping it heat your water properly.
The first consideration for installing a water heater must be that of space. A 100-gallon storage tank is going to take up a lot of room, and buying a water heater that is too large can cause all sorts of problems. Depending on the position of your water hookups, you may not be able to use the oversized water heater at all.
Once a new water heater of the proper size has been selected, it needs to be hooked up to the water line. If not done properly, this can prevent you from receiving hot water at best and cause a great deal of water damage at worst. Next, the water heater must be connected to a fuel source. If you have an electric water heater, this will mean being wired into the home's electrical grid. If you're using a gas powered water heater, the burner assembly must be connected to the gas line. Everything must be connected precisely in order for the water heater to operate correctly and safely, which is why professional expertise is so important.
