There are a lot of people who will gladly take your money to replace a  water heater in your home, but not all of these people are qualified to do the work. Unfortunately some homeowners try to save a little money by hiring an unlicensed contractor who has very little skill or training. On the other hand some Sonora, CA plumbing contractors hire unskilled or untrained labor to offer low prices to consumers. This seems like a good deal until you think about the dangers of these people installing your water heater. Installing an electric hot water heater includes dealing with 240 volts, while installing a gas water heater includes the danger of gas leaks as well as carbon monoxide from the flue pipe. Even carbon monoxide which many people don’t think of when they think water heater is a concern because carbon monoxide kills 400 people a year in the United States, and sends another 20,000 to the emergency room.

The best thing to do is look for a licensed plumbing contractor who hires qualified help and will install things correctly, make sure all of the safety features are in place, and that everythings installed to plumbing code. Price shopping for appliances is a good idea but this happens to be a different story. The difference between a $1,200 installation that is done correctly, and a $900 installation done incorrectly is $300 but over the life of the appliance you are only paying $2.08 per month for the quality installation. This is a small price to pay to know that your hot water heater will not be a danger to you or your family.

Another benefit of hiring a quality Sonora, Ca plumber is the knowledge they bring to the table about all options of water heating including tankless water heaters, instant water heaters, high efficiency water heaters, electric water heaters including heat pump water heaters, and solar water heaters.
