Gas Water Heater Installation
Gas water heaters are typically fueled by natural gas, propane, or LPG. Gas water heaters can easily be identified by the two-pipe linkage, one pipe delivering gas to the heater and the other carrying hot water away.
Gas water heaters are generally installed in one of two ways. Most gas water heaters are mounted on the wall, with an access panel to make adjustments or perform repairs. These heater can be vented either horizontally through a side wall, or vertically up through the roof. The other installation method is floor standing gas-fired water heaters that run off LP or natural gas.
Also, they should be anchored to the floor for safety purposes, which makes them perfect for locations where there’s corrosion issues near the heater.
With both horizontal and vertical venting options available, it’s up to you to decide what works best for your location!
Although vertical venting is generally installed with forced air ventilation to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning, it’s still possible to improperly install this type of installation by exhausting back into the crawlspace or attic through an unprotected opening.
Gas water heater benefits
- Lower energy costs compared to electric units
- Fast water heating times
- Will still work during power outages
Some things to consider
- Not all homes have gas lines
- Higher installation costs
- Requires ventilation systems
Electric Water Heater Installation
An electric water heater is a device that heats potable water for residential and commercial uses. Most electric water heaters are designed to hold the water in an insulated heating element or coil that must be immersed in the cold tap water to activate the unit.
There are two types of electric water heaters. The first is the standard-sized storage type which can deliver hot water to all fixtures at once. The second is a demand flow unit designed for use in only one general location such as a sink, bathtub or washer machine. Demand units have an immersion heater that activates only when the user turns on the hot faucet. Electric water heaters are made to replace gas models easily by hooking up directly to existing gas lines without modifying the fuel source or electrical power.
The pros of installing an electric water heater include:
- Efficient water heating
- Clean operation
- Lower purchase price
- Easier hook-up since most homes and businesses have electricity
On the other hand, the cons of installing an electric unit are:
- Higher operating costs
- Longer recovery times
- Slower to heat water compared to gas units
- Failure to operate in case of power outages
Our water heating company pulls all necessary permits to ensure the safe installation of your electric water heater. During the installation, we check the quality of all important components, such as the drip pan, ball valve, and wirings, ensuring that all of them are in order. Warranties are also available and included, depending on the size (and make and model) of your chosen unit.

Commercial Water Heater Installation
Commercial water heaters are a an investment that you want to protect. It’s important to protect that investment with proper installation and a good warranty. When you work with our Kingsport Water Heater Pros, we guarantee that the job will be done right on your first try!
After we correctly gauge your estimate hot water usage, asses the location your new unit(s) will be, and purchasing the correct water heater or combination of water heating systems, we can begin the installation process. It is not uncommon for additional plumbing fixtures, recirculation pumps, and pipe insulations to be custom added as well.
If we are installing gas-powered water heaters, the next step will be installing gas connections, which involves locating the gas meter and ensuring that it is in the proper position before fitting piping into it. The final step is selecting an appropriate foundation then determining depth (sometimes below ground level) for installation.
After the installation, we will leave you with an ongoing maintenance plan to keep your new water heating units operating efficiently for the entirety of their expected lifespan. By having your water heaters or commercial boilers professionally installed, you will protect yourself to claim any necessary warranties in the future.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
Tankless water heaters, also known as instant water heating devices, are a type of on demand hot water heater that heats the water only when the tap is open. When you use a tankless water heater, you will get hot water quickly and without waiting for it to heat up.
There are two types of tankless water heaters: gas-powered and electric-powered. Gas-powered tankless water heaters can be connected to your central heating system whereas electric powered tankless water heaters need to be plugged in separately.
The advantages of owning a tankless water heater include instant hot water (unlike with conventional storage tanks), space savings, and lower electricity bills as well. This is because they only heat up when needed, instead of using energy to maintain an entire supply of heated water. In addition, tankless technology helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by not burning fuel or operating all day like traditional storage tanks do.
During the installation process, we will take care of plumbing, venting, electrical connections, mounting, insulation and final inspection. Total time for installation normally range from 2-8 hours depending on the size of the unit, location, number of tankless units, and if a gas line and meter needs to be installed.
