San Mateo water heater installation Remove Old Water Heater

Depending on whether you’re installing a whole home tankless water heater or a tankless water heater to serve a particular part of your home or business, the installer may need to remove your old water heater. If removal is necessary, the technician will require access to the electrical panel to turn off power to the old unit. Even though your old water heater is gas-fired, it still relies on an electrical current and can shock or electrocute if still active.

Install New Gas Line, Venting, and Filters

One of the main reasons why tankless water heaters are more expensive upfront than conventional water heaters is because most installations will require a large gas line to support the new amount of energy required. Your San Mateo water heater installer will put in the new gas line and adhere to local building codes. The installer will also need to put in steel venting and filters if your property has galvanized plumbing.

Build Frame and Make Connections

After the infrastructure is complete, the installer will assemble or build a frame for the tankless water heater. The water heater will then be fastened to the frame and the gas and water lines are attached to the correct fitting on the unit. The installer will check for gas and water leaks before cleaning up and leaving the property.
