While some individuals may have the knowledge necessary to replace a water heater safely and effectively on their own, we recommend hiring a technician to ensure that nothing goes wrong. When our technicians replace a water heater, they follow specific steps to ensure that the job is done right
First, our technicians confirm that water heater repair isn’t a better option than replacement. If the unit needs to be replaced, they shut off the gas valve and look for leaks. They then turn off the pilot light, disconnect the exhaust duct, drain the old heater and disconnecting the gas line and water lines, making the unit easy to remove. To install the new unit, the technicians connect new gas and water lines. After filling the tank, they open the gas valve and ignite the pilot light, completing the installation process.
