Tank Water Heater Installation & Replacement Services
You may have seen videos showing homeowners DIY-ing their way through a water heater installation. While it may seem simple, building codes and regulations must be followed, and different homes may require unique solutions to stay within regulation.
We strongly recommend that these installations be left to the professionals. Water heaters, especially those fueled by natural gas, should always be installed by an experienced plumber. Connecting gas lines requires a special certification to be installed safely, and you shouldn’t risk the safety of your family, pets, and household.
Apollo Home provides fast, reliable, and professional water heater installation services in the Cincinnati Tri-State area. Our highly skilled, certified plumbing technicians offer convenient appointment times and arrive with full-stocked trucks to get your home’s hot water up and running as quickly as possible. We also provide tankless water heater solutions for those with limited space or increased hot water needs.

Common Water Tank Heater Questions
When should I replace my tank water heater?
Most water heaters have a life expectancy of 8 to 12 years. Water heaters account for a significant amount of energy use in your home and can be as much as 25 percent of a home’s energy use. As they age, they become less efficient and increase utility bills. The older your water heater gets, the less efficient it is, and the more apt it is to fail. If your water heater is nearing the end of its serviceable life, it is time to start considering replacement options to increase efficiency and minimize downtime between water heaters.
Why is my water heater leaking?
If you notice water surrounding your tank, you may have a crack in your internal tank. If this is the case, your water heater must be replaced. If the leak comes from the top, or you have a malfunctioning fitting or plumbing component, these can be quick repairs.
Why is my water heater making strange noises?
If you hear odd or high-pitched sounds from your water heater, it’s likely due to high incoming water pressure. A plumber should check immediately to ensure your pressure relief safety valve works. If too much pressure builds up in your tank, it can lead to cracks or a burst tank (though rare).
Why does my hot water run out so quickly?
The older your water tank gets, the less efficiently it operates. However, sediment buildup inside the tank is the most common culprit to a hot water shortage. The minerals in the water build up inside your tank and decrease how much water your tank can hold. We recommend draining and flushing your tank regularly (at least annually) to eliminate sediment buildup.
How long does a water tank take to heat up fully?
The time varies from model to model, but it will typically take 45 minutes to an hour to fully heat the water inside.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
