Hot Water Heater Installation – How long does it take?

There are several factors that determine the time it will take to install. Installing a water heating unit does not take an excessive amount of time. In fact, many systems can be ready to go in just a few hours. Getting the old unit prepared to remove can take up to an hour. It is necessary to drain and disconnect it before hauling it out of your home.

  • The similarity between your old unit and the new one. Swapping a new electric unit for an old model that is very similar will take very little time
  • Any modifications that are needed if you need gas lines installed, the process can be lengthy
  • Unexpected hindrances can increase the installation time

Electric hot water units are a popular choice among homeowners looking to replace a water heating system. Among the top reasons to buy an electric hot water unit instead of other types of heating systems is the fact that the initial cost to buy an electric is lower than different types of heating systems.

There are plenty of good reasons to choose an electric hot water unit. The upfront cost is low, they are simple to use, require no gas line maintenance, and the installation is quick. However, many homeowners avoid electric units because they tend to take longer to heat water and the operating costs are higher than other types of heaters.

Residential gas hot water units remain among the most popular type of systems. While the upfront cost of a gas system is a bit more expensive, these units are more energy efficient. The savings on energy costs make gas units very attractive to homeowners. Also, the gas systems tend to be more reliable than other kinds of hot water units. The gas systems come in a number of sizes, and newer models have considerably lower emissions than units from decades ago.

The use of solar power is becoming more common, and consumers who invest in solar power are reaping the benefits of energy savings. While the upfront investment can be steep, the savings on your energy bills can be substantial over time. A solar hot water heating system is one more way to harness the sun’s renewable energy.

There are two types of solar hot water systems:

  • Integral Collector Solar Water Heaters – These large storage tanks are a part of an isolated box with a top that lets sunlight through. Sunlight directly heats the water, which is held in large black tanks. When you need hot water, it flows into your plumbing system.
  • Passive Thermosyphon Systems – Metal flat plate collectors are placed on your roof to heat small batches of water. When you turn on your hot water valves, hot water in the batch collector flows down from your roof to your faucets. Typically, the batch collector will hold around 150 litres.
