North York: Water Heater Installations FAQs

How Hard Is Water Heater Installation? Can I Do It Myself?

If you’re asking for our professional perspective, we highly recommend against doing it yourself. Not only are you required to get a building permit and adhere to standards, codes, and regulations, but you have to be a certified technician (plumber or electrician) to handle a hot water heater installation. Local property owners could otherwise jeopardize their safety and even void their new system’s warranty.

For gas water heater installation, you will need a gas permit and also ensure you’re compliant with the Ontario Electrical Safety Code (OESC). For proper installation service, your local plumber is at your disposal. You’ll also get certified documents from your licensed plumber that you can use for future home inspection purposes. Nothing is too hard for your licensed plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing. As a team, we always get our job done easily and efficiently.

How Long Does A 40-Gallon Water Heater Take To Heat Up After Installation?

It will probably take between half an hour to 45 minutes to fully heat up, depending on your heater type. Gas-powered systems may deliver hot water faster than electric units.

Should I Choose a Traditional Heater or Tankless Water Heater Installation?

The experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing believe they are both great and serve great purposes! But of course, this is highly dependent on your personal preference and needs and how much you are willing to spend on upfront installation costs.

Generally, conventional tank-based systems are more cost-effective in terms of unit price and installation. However, regular maintenance services like inspection, periodic flushing, and anode rod replacement are important services to keep in your calendar. The rate of your monthly utility bills will depend on whether you have a gas heater or an electric water heater installation.

Homeowners who choose a tankless heater will have to invest more in upfront costs that include complex gas lines or electrical line installations. But down the road, a tankless unit allows you to better control your energy consumption because it provides you with hot water on demand rather than keeping it heated in a storage tank. It also has a longer lifespan than conventional systems (up to 20 years versus 15 years). It also remains at peak efficiency for longer.
