Water Heater Installation: What to Expect

Installing Your New Water Heater with Acme Plumbing 

1. Choosing the Right Water Heater

The first step is selecting the right water heater for your needs. Consider factors like the size of your household, energy efficiency, and the type of water heater – tankless, gas, electric, or solar. Our team at Acme Plumbing can help you make an informed choice based on your specific requirements and budget.

2. Pre-Installation Assessment

Before installation, a professional plumber will assess your home’s plumbing system and installation area. This step is crucial to ensure compatibility and identify any modifications needed for the new unit, such as adjustments in piping or ventilation.

3. Removing the Old Unit

If you’re replacing an existing water heater, our team will safely disconnect and remove it. This involves draining the tank, disconnecting power and water lines, and ensuring that the removal process is conducted safely and efficiently.

4. Installing the New Water Heater

The installation of your new water heater involves several steps:

  • Positioning the unit in the designated area.
  • Properly connecting it to the water lines, gas or electricity supply, and venting system, as applicable.
  • Ensuring all connections are secure and leak-free.
  • Setting up and testing the thermostat and controls.

5. Testing and Final Inspection

Once installed, the new water heater is thoroughly tested. This includes checking for leaks, verifying proper operation, and ensuring that it meets all safety standards and local building codes.

6. Clean Up and Disposal

After installation, our team will clean up the work area, dispose of any debris, and provide guidance on how to maintain your new water heater for optimal performance and longevity.

7. After-Service Support

Post-installation, Acme Plumbing remains available for any questions or support. We ensure our customers are fully satisfied and understand how to operate and maintain their new water heater.
