  1. Tips on Replacing Your Water Heater

  2. Water Heater Repair • Your water heater might not be the first thing on your mind this fall, but it’s a huge deal when you get in the shower in the morning, only to find that the long, hot shower you wanted for so long isn’t hot. • Water heater failure is one of the most frustrating things, especially if you live in an area where winters are really cold. Simple tasks like washing your hands make you think twice. • The average life span of a typical water heater, either it is a gas heater or an electric one, is about 8 to 12 years. • Water heater installation can be a tricky task, the type of heater you choose can play a significant role in determining the difficulty here.

  3. Removing your Previous Unit • Always start with cutting off power to your heater, turn off gas or switch of electrical supply. • Your water heater might have really hot water inside, it’s recommended to wait a few minutes or turning all the hot water faucets on in the house until the water coming out of them is cold. • Waiting is recommended as that will save water. •  Turn off the water supply and drain the water out of the heater. • Pipes are normally hard-plumbed, and disconnecting can be tricky, take special care and get someone to help you remove the heater as they can be quite heavy.

  4. Installing a new unit • Installing is tougher than removing as it requires you to line pipes up, which can be really hard if your pipes are hard-plumbed (which they probably are). • If after removing you’ve realized that it's not your cup of tea, hire a professional. • There are a lot of businesses providing affordable water heater repair and install to services out there. • Place the heater in place and connect all the pipes. • If the pipes are not aligning there are a few soft plumbing options available out there that are quite reliable, still hard plumbing is always the best option. • Before connecting the power source, open all faucets and let the water drain so that there is no air in the plumbing, then connect gas or electricity.

  5. Tips for the Longevity of your Water Heater • Draining your water heater once a year, it will remove any sediments in the heater and possibly increase its efficiency. • The trick is to let it drain from the input instead of the output. • Turn your water heater off if you’re going for a vacation. • Most heaters come with a vacation option. • Completely turning off a heater might freeze the water inside your heater and badly damage it.
