Are You Handy Enough to Replace Your Own Water Heater?
Hot Water Heater Replacement RI
Water heater replacement isn’t that hard at all. The most common question when it comes to water heater replacement is whether or not someone should be hired to do the work. If the need for replacement is immediate and time is a factor then, yes, it would be worth it to find a licensed plumbing contractor to do the work. If you’re reasonably handy then you can probably handle it.
What size should I get? First determine what size of water heater you will need. How was the size of your existing hot water heater? If you’ve always had plenty of hot water, then the same size that you have always had is fine. If you’ve always found the water going cold during a shower, then maybe you need to consider going up a size or two. Consult your local home improvement retailer for help with sizing as well. Numerous resources are also available at your local library or online to help with sizing.
