Water Heater Repair Irvine
Water heater repair, installation and replacement is usually a once in a blue moon job. Water heaters generally work as they are intended for years on end without maintenance but that does not mean they shouldn’t be serviced. Without regular servicing by a company such as Patriot Plumbing your water heater can go out at any moment. Sometimes they can be repaired if they have not rusted beyond a certain amount. Although it may be better to have your water heater replaced in some cases.
Installing a water heater in Irvine, California, requires that local plumbing codes are followed. This task is not impossibly hard but can take a big chunk of time out of your day. Patriot Plumbing can do water heater installation in faster time than an inexperienced person because they have installed and serviced many water heaters. The biggest thing you will want to do when having a new water heater installed is selecting the appropriate size for your needs, such as going from a 30 gallon water heater to a 40 gallon water heater.
When having a water heater replaced the plumber will select a water heater that is of the same fuel type as the old heater. Either electric or gas powered. The plumber will also check the plumbing to make sure there are no pipes that need to be installed, cut or replaced. This job also requires two people to move the old water heater out and replace it with the new one. Usually an appliance dolly will be used to move the water heaters. Once the water heater is installed and fully connected it will be filled with cold water and then you can set the thermostat to a temperature you like.
