It’s not uncommon for homeowners to have the ability to replace or install a water heater on their own. Is it a smart idea to do so? In the simplest of answers, no, it’s not a good idea to install a new water heater yourself. There’s so much that can go terribly wrong, especially when dealing with electricity (electrocution) and gas (leaks and explosion). No matter your skillset it is important to only trust a licensed, experienced plumber with the installation of a new water heater. Replacing a water heater takes anywhere from one to two days to complete so be prepared to be without hot water and heat during this time.

If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is time to replace your water heater.
