Traditional water heaters are now a thing of the past, as most American families prefer a tankless water heater in their homes.
Moreover, tankless water heaters are complicated and need a precise installation made with the help of a plumber. Let’s review the steps of a tankless water heater install.
Larger gas line
Most tankless water heaters need a larger gas line than traditional water heaters. This gas line goes from the gas meter to the tankless water heater.
Connecting the cold water supply
Use copper wires to connect the cold water supply to the water heater. Keep in mind that the hot line of the water heater needs to be connected as well.
Don’t forget the electrical outlet.
The tankless water heater needs a constant source of energy, which is why you need an electrical outlet near the water heater.
