If you get a new water heater installation you’ll notice that your new water heater will probably be larger than your old one, or one you are used to in an older house. In 2015 regulations were passed that required more insulation around the water heater tank. For some, new water heaters meant relocating where they are stored so the larger units could fit. If you are facing a water heater replacement, and worried about it fitting, let us work with you to choose the one that works best for your needs. We are happy to assist in getting a new water heater installation to make sure everything can run smoothly again.
