If you’re fond of DIY home improvement projects, then you likely have been tempted to install your water heater by yourself. While you may have had experience tinkering with various appliances around the house, water heaters are a whole other story altogether. Needless to say, Gold Star Plumbing & Drain does not recommend DIY water heater installation.

Apart from the untimely need for water heater repair in Chandler, AZ, improper water heater installation can also result in hazardous mistakes. Here are some of the things that could go wrong when you try to install a water heater on your own.

Compromised Efficiency

Because it involves a complex piece of appliance, installing a water heater is a complicated process that needs requisite technical competence. Even if you’re just carrying out a water heater replacement, you might not be familiar with the manufacturer’s specifications. As a result, your water heater may not work properly or efficiently, if at all.

Water Damage

If you fail to connect the water line properly during a tankless water heater replacement, it may leak and cause water damage to your home. If you’re planning on getting a standard water heater, watch out for the tank. If the tank is not anchored properly, it may topple over and incur damages to your

property and even endanger your safety.

A professional plumbing company like ours has the experience and technical skillset to help you install your water heater correctly without exposing your property to risks of water damage.

Electrical Connectivity Issues

A tankless water heater repair or installation project entails dealing with electrical connections. An incorrect connection may result in an accidental electrocution, or can even cause a fire.

Working with a licensed professional for any type of water heater service you might need is a hassle-free way to ensure that the job will be done efficiently the first time around. Contact Gold Star Plumbing & Drain today to schedule an appointment.
