5 Questions You Should Have the Answer to Before Water Heater Installation in Escondido CA

If it is time for you to upgrade to a new water heater then you need to call on the professionals for water heater installation in Escondido CA. At 1st Choice Plumbing Heating & Air, we are highly experienced in getting our clients the right type of water heater for their needs and providing excellent installation services. Before you move forward with the installation, there are a few questions you should have the answer to. Reach out to us at 866-437-0205 to learn more about the plumbing services we offer.

  1. Is a tankless or traditional water heater right for your needs?
  2. First and foremost, consider the pros and cons of tankless versus traditional water heaters. Neither is perfect for all needs. The main deciding factor should be your household and its hot water needs. If you have less space to house a water heater, then tankless may be the best option. If efficiency is a top concern, then tankless may be the best option. On the other hand, water heater installation in Escondido CA is almost always more affordable on standard units, especially if you are replacing one.

  3. What size tank is right for our needs?
  4. The average residential water heater ranges from 20 to 50 gallons. The right choice for you will vary based on your needs. If there are only one or two people in your home then a larger unit would waste water – and energy – but larger families want bigger water heaters to ensure they can get all the hot water they need.

  5. How energy efficient is the unit we are choosing?
  6. Energy efficiency is an important factor for many reasons. At 1st Choice Plumbing Heating & Air we are always happy to talk to you about all the options available to you prior to your water heater installation in Escondido CA. Of course, ideally homeowners want a more energy efficient model but that does come with a cost. The question is if that cost can be recouped in lower energy bills over time.

  7. What is the process of water heater installation in Escondido CA?
  8. When you work with us, you can count on us taking the time to ensure that you know exactly what to expect during your water heater installation. In most cases, taking out your old unit and replacing it will take about three hours. Of course, the time frame will vary on your case based on your needs. Before we get started, we will give you our best estimate on how long it will take.

  9. How much will it cost?
  10. You will likely find that any Escondido plumber will give you an idea of how much the unit will cost but they may be less forthcoming about the installation cost. At 1st Choice Plumbing Heating & Air we believe that you should have the total cost before we being the process of water heater installation in Escondido CA.
