Installing a water heater is no easy feat. Water heating is a heat transfer process that uses an energy source to heat water above it’s natural temperature. Just as gas water heaters require a gas supply, a cold water supply, and a flue connection, electric water heaters have an extensive installation process to ensure smooth functioning. These projects are best left to a professionally licensed water heater installation company, such as R.A. Dobson.
There’s a lot to consider before purchasing a water heater for your home. To help you decide which water heater works best for your family, here’s additional information below on five of the best water heaters that R.A. Dobson offers:
