Water heaters are a necessity in every household, so it throws many homeowners into a panic when their water heater suddenly breaks. Most homeowners rely on professional plumbers to perform water heater installation for them rather than trying to perform the installation service on their own. If your water heater is broken, it is understandable to want to get it replaced as soon as possible. However, it is also important not to make any rash or hurried decisions when choosing a Murrieta plumber to replace your water heater.
Before you hire a professional plumbing company to perform water heater installation for you, it is important to make sure that they are well-equipped to replace your water heater the right way for a fair price.
If you are located in the city of Murrieta, CA, or its surrounding areas throughout and beyond Riverside County, here are 3 questions you should ask any plumber or plumbing company you are considering hiring to replace your water heater.
Are You Bonded and Insured?
Before you hire a plumber to perform any plumbing services in your home—let alone a service like water heater installation that is so crucial to the everyday functionality of your home—it is important to make sure that they are fully bonded and insured.
If you hire a plumber that is not bonded and insured, you might find yourself liable if the plumber gets injured while working in your home or if they do not properly install your new water heater and cause additional damage to your home plumbing system.
Hiring plumbers and professional plumbing companies that are bonded and insured lifts all of that frightening potential liability off of your shoulders.
Which Types of Water Heaters Do You Install?
There are two main types of water heaters: tankless water heaters and traditional water heaters. Both types of water heaters also come in a wide range of sizes. Before you hire a plumber to replace your water heater in your home, it is important to ask them which types and sizes of water heaters they have available to install.
If a plumbing company doesn’t have the water heater you need in stock at the moment, you’re probably better off taking your business elsewhere. You don’t want to go days or even weeks without hot water as you wait for that plumbing company to get the water heater you need and come install it in your home.
How Long Will the Installation Take?
Many plumbers have hourly rates and charge their customers by the hour instead of charging a flat rate for a specific service. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it is important to ask any plumber to estimate how long the water heater installation in your home will take before you hire them to actually install the water heater.
It should take a professional, experienced, and skilled plumber approximately three hours to replace your water heater. If a plumber charges hourly for their services and estimates that the water heater installation process will take them a much longer amount of time than three hours, you are likely better off looking elsewhere for a plumber to install your water heater.
