mwh_body.pngMr. Waterheater specializes in residential and commercial water heater repair and replacement.  We take care of all your water heater needs, including water pressure regulators, expansion tanks, water shut-off valves, and any other plumbing item related to the water heater.  “Waterheater” is our name, so when it comes to your water heater, why call anyone else?    

Our Standard Installation is defined as the installation of a new water heater in place of an old one in which there is clear access to the old water heater. 

Standard Installation of a water heater includes:

  1. We shut-off your water, gas, or electric, and drain and disconnect your old heater
  2. We slide it out of the way and put the new one right in its place.
  3. We hook the new water heater up to the existing water lines below the existing valves: 
    • For copper water lines, we include up to 1 foot of copper for minor changes at no additional charge.  Additional copper will result in an additional charge. 
    • For plastic water lines, many local plumbing codes require a certain length of copper from the top of the tank.  If you have copper coming out of your existing tank and meet the local plumbing code, there is usually no additional charge.  If your current set-up does not follow local plumbing code, there may be an additional charge.
  4. For gas water heaters, we hook it up to the existing flue and gas line.
  5. For electric water heaters, we reconnect it to the existing electric. 
  6. We check the water pressure and check for thermal expansion.
  7. We haul the old water heater for a minimal charge, or put it at the curb at no additional charge.
  8. The labor warranty for all hot water tanks is 1 year.  You choose the warranty for the water heater tank and parts (warranties typically range from 6 through 12 years).
Some examples of a non-standard installation include:  (1) when the water heater is located on the 2nd floor or above, (2) when the tank is not accessible because it is behind a furnace, (3) when gas lines are blocking it, or (4) when it is behind a finished wall or door frame.
