If you’re planning on installing a new water heater and are thinking about doing it yourself, you should reconsider and choose to hire a professional instead. While it appears to be not too difficult of a task, there are actually several dangers and risks involved. Here are five reasons why you should hire a plumber to install a water heater.
Plumbing professionals like Prodigy Plumbing have installed water heaters for residential and commercial properties for years. Why risk making a mistake when you can trust someone who does this for a living and can be counted on to get the job done well.
An experienced plumber with industry knowledge will know which water heater is the best fit for you and your property. No matter how much research you do, this type of knowledge can’t match the understanding that an experienced plumber will have.
Avoid Carbon Monoxide Exposure
If a water heater system is improperly installed or if there’s some kind of venting issue, carbon monoxide could leak into the airway without you even knowing. Those who are heavily exposed to carbon monoxide could suffer severe brain damage or even death. Trust in a professional like Prodigy Plumbing for your water heater installation needs so you don’t have to worry about issues like these.
Safer for Yourself and Your Property
Some water heaters use natural gas which is highly flammable. An accident could occur which would result in either a fire or an explosion. Choosing to install a water heater by yourself could put you, your family, and your property at risk.
Better for Your Home’s Value
Issues like improper installation or failure to pass inspection requirements with your water heater can hurt your home’s value because of the need for additional repairs and reinstallations.
