Water Heater Questions
Here are some answers to the most common questions we get about water heaters.
Yes, permits are required for water heater replacements. They can be purchased by either the homeowner or the contractor. If you choose to obtain the permit yourself, be sure the contractor will guarantee that the water heater will be installed to meet codes and that if there are any corrections needed that they will make them at no charge.
Yes regular maintenance will extend the life time of your water heater and can save money on future repairs as well as save you money because it will operate more efficiently. Standard tank water heaters should be drained and flushed annually but no less than every 3 years.
Tankless water heaters should be serviced every year for maximum performance and lifetime. Installation of a water purification and conditioning system that removes dissolved minerals from the water will also help extend the life of your tankless water heater.
