Water Heater Installation in Cleveland: 4 Common Mistakes by Homeowners

Start 2016 off the right way with water heater installation in Cleveland! You’ll have hot water for showering, washing dishes, doing laundry, and more!

However, while having proper water heating is important during this time of year, it’s not wise to simply rush into buying process and enlist the service of anyone willing to help. Time and time again, we see customers wind up with the wrong water heater that either can’t meet their heating demands or simply can’t fit into their home!

Arco Comfort Air is here to warn you of the common mistakes homeowners make during the water heater installation process so you can take the steps in avoiding them!

What Mistakes Should You Avoid?

Our main goal is to ensure our customers have a water heater that makes them truly satisfied. The homeowners in the scenario above are trying to do the right thing, but they made a few costly mistakes. Take at the following so you don’t fall into a similar trap:

  1. Not Demanding Upfront Pricing – Pay for the appliance and the installation from the same professionals to ensure you’re getting the right product at the right price. Our professionals always offer upfront pricing, which means the number on your estimate is guaranteed to be the same as the price on your bottom line. It’s the only honest way to do business. Unfortunately, there are a few services out there who don’t operate the same way and they’ll try to make you spend more money for shoddy work.
  2. Know Your Regulations – In April of 2015, new water heater regulations went into effect for water heater manufacturers. The new laws require all water heaters to have more insulation so they waste less energy. The additional installation makes the new models about 2 inches taller and wider, sometimes more. If your water heater needs to fit through a tight attic access or into a tiny utility room, ask Arco Comfort Air for a consultation before you buy.
  3. Not Switching to Tankless – The homeowners who order from big box companies are often unaware of all the options at their disposal. One space-saving alternative to conventional water heating is to go tankless. Tankless water heaters save energy and room by heating water on-demand instead of in a storage tank. These appliances are about the size of a carry-on bag, and they can be installed on just about any interior wall!
  4. Not Enlisting a Professional Service: When you’re looking for water installation, avoid enlisting the services of an unlicensed handymen or anyone you feel is underqualified for the job. A professional service can meet your water heater specifications down to the last detail, and won’t leave you with a water heater that’s poorly installed.
