Professional Water Heater Installation & Replacement Services for Your Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky Home
While there are plentiful videos depicting homeowners DIY-ing their way through water heater installation, we strongly advise that you leave it to the professionals. Tank water heaters, especially those fueled by gas, should always be installed by an expert. Connecting gas lines requires special certification in order to be completed safely, and the average homeowner simply does not have the expertise or skill set to perform the job in a way that doesn’t endanger your home and loved ones. Likewise, the proper installation of your new water heater plays a direct role in its overall service life. Faulty installations can result in more costly repairs needed down the line.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tank Water Heaters
When it comes to tank water heater installation, replacement, and repair in the Cincinnati area, our team of experts feel like we’ve seen and heard it all. That’s why we’ve put together some of the most common questions we receive from homeowners just like you.
When should I replace my tank water heater?
Most hot water heaters will last approximately 8-12 years, so if your water heater is reaching the end of its service life, you may want to consider replacement options. Once your water heater reaches its typical service life, you can expect it to become less efficient and more apt to fail. And while many wait for their water heater to stop working completely, there are benefits to updating your water heater before it dies.
Water heaters are one of the top energy users in your home, accounting for as much as 25% of your home’s energy use. As they age, they become less efficient, which could result in a larger than bargained for electric bill. Waiting until your water heater fails completely means you’ll have to rush to find a replacement and schedule installation services. If you know your water heater is nearing its expiration date, it will better serve you and the comfort of your home to begin the process of looking for a replacement, minimizing downtime between water heaters.
Why is my water heater leaking?
If you notice water leaking from the bottom of your water heater, you likely have a crack in your internal tank and will need a replacement. If your water heater is leaking from the top, you may have a malfunctioning fitting or plumbing component; this can usually be repaired quickly.
Why is my water heater making strange noises?
Having a water heater that makes odd noises can certainly be a nuisance. If your water heater is making a high-pitched sounds, it’s likely due to high incoming water pressure. This should be inspected by a professional right away to ensure that your water heater’s pressure relief safety valve is operating effectively. If too much pressure builds up in your tank, it can lead to cracks, leaks, or even a burst water heater (although this is rare).
Why does my hot water run out so quickly?
As your tank water heater ages, it operates less efficiently. However, the most common culprit for a hot water shortage is sediment buildup in your tank. Sediment buildup will decrease the amount of hot water your tank can hold, thus decreasing the available hot water for your household’s needs. We recommend draining and flushing your water heater tank regularly (at least once a year) to get rid of damaging sediment buildup.
How long does a water heater take to fully heat up?
While the exact time will vary from model to model, if you have had your water heater turned off, or if you just had a new water heater installed, it should take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to fully heat the water inside.
