At JNR Plumbing, we offer quality water heater repair in Stamford, CT. Far too often, we discover that the placement of the water heater caused more damage than might have occurred with a different placement. Placement during water heater installation matters for the following reasons:

Water Conservation 

It takes time for hot water to travel through pipes to faucets, which means that a person must run cold water in the pipes down the drain. When a plumbing technician positions the unit close to the most-used faucet during water heater installation, then hot water arrives faster.

Property Damage

By the time a property owner calls a plumber for emergency water heater services, a leak has usually caused serious moisture and water damage to one or more areas of the building. When a technician installs a water heater in the wrong spot too close to living or work areas, a leak can damage flooring, subflooring, drywall, and even mortar. If the owner stored anything in an area below the unit, such as boxes on a basement floor, the leak can also damage those items.

Long-Term Damage

plumber in Stamford, CT might have the difficult responsibility of informing a property owner that they need to hire a remediation expert to inspect and restore an area because of some structural elements, such as carpet, drywall, and subflooring, need total replacement. An inspector might also discover mold growth, which requires expensive cleanup to prevent prolonged health and safety problems.

Water heater replacement won’t solve these types of issues unless everyone involved reconsiders the unit placement. Newer designs help to a degree, but placement matters because any unit that heats water can develop a leak at any time.

At JNR Plumbing, we want to help property owners make informed decisions when selecting new and replacement water heaters. We provide all related services, including the maintenance and installation of traditional and tankless water heaters. Contact us today for inquiries.
