How Hard Is It To Install A Water Heater?

Sometimes it feels like you are walking a tightrope when you work in the field of HVAC and plumbing. What I’m talking about here is advising the homeowner who wants to do his or her own work. Please don’t jump to the wrong conclusion. Masters Heating & Cooling has immense respect for the DIYer. Many of our own employees are in the skilled trades because they love working with their hands and grew up as do-it-yourselfers. But we’ve also seen do-it-yourself projects go horribly wrong, such as trying to install a water heater, in many Fort Wayne, Decatur, Angola, Indianapolis, Greenwood, and Mishawaka, IN homes.

Replacing A Water Heater

In this article we want to focus on water heater replacements. Some folks can’t resist the idea of saving money by ordering a new water heater online thinking they are going to do the installation themselves. Using that famous saying, Masters freely admits an installation isn’t brain surgery. But it does require some specific skills. The difference is our Masters employees have spent a lot of time perfecting their skills by repeating them again and again.

The Risk Is Real

While the skills required for a water heater installation are pretty basic, never forget that any little mistake can create dangerous situations because you are working with:

  • Scalding hot water
  • High pressure water connections with a potential of damaging leaks
  • Working with 220 Volt electric wiring


  • Flammable and explosive natural gas or propane
  • Danger of carbon monoxide poisoning

Masters urges you should think long and hard before taking on this task yourself.

Peace Of Mind

When a Masters professional does the water heater installation in your Fort Wayne, Decatur, Angola, Indianapolis, Greenwood, or Mishawaka, IN home you will have the peace-of-mind that comes with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Additionally, the Masters team will clean up any mess caused by the installation and will dispose of your old water heater, so you don’t have to. 

Depend On Masters

Wanting to save money is understandable but too many times trying to do your own water heater installation will cost you in the long run.
