Water Heater Installation

At Central Plumbing we have installed hundreds of water heaters for our customers over the years. Each job is its own challenge and we have learned a lot about water heaters and how to correctly install them in that time. When you have a licensed professional do your water heater installation you get the benefit of all their knowledge. We work with the city to make sure all code violations are addressed ensuring your appliance is installed correctly and safely.

Water Heater Service

Yearly water heater service like flushing your tank once a year to get rid of the mineral sludge that builds up at the bottom is recommended. Flushing your tankless heat exchanger yearly is a must to keep it flowing and also remove mineral deposits build-up on internal components. If you have a recirculation pump attached and the connecting piping is galvanized it should be checked for blockages or replaced with brass fittings.

Water Heater Replacement

Water heater replacement takes 3-4 hours for a tank and most of the day for a tankless heater. If your old heater vent is only 3″ and it combines with your furnace vent then we will have to replace your venting all the way out to the roof to meet plumbing code. This adds a few more hours and cost to the job.

Water Heater Repair

We repair all makes and models tank and tankless units. Our technicians carry critical repair parts on their vehicles. If the water heater repair falls under your warranty the part is overnighted and installed the next day. Most other replacement parts can be picked up locally.

1 Year parts and labor warranty

We cover all parts and labor related to your installation for one year. The manufacturer's parts warranty is usually 6 years.

Quality parts

We make sure to use high-quality parts when installing your heater so you will never have to worry about parts corroding or failing prematurely. Galvanized fittings are not reliable. They start to corrode and leak quickly. Brass fittings never corrode or clog up the same way galvanized fittings will.

All code upgrades are included in the price

Thermal expansion tank, earthquake straps, pan, and water alarm, temperature, and pressure drain line, and gas line sediment trap are all included in your flat rate price. Only venting is excluded and requires a separate quote.

High efficiency options

We install all types of high-efficiency options. Tankless heaters are a great option with unlimited hot water. Energy Star heat pump units and high-efficiency gas storage units can save you up to $3500 over its lifetime. Albuquerque and Rio Rancho run rebate programs periodically that you can take advantage of.

Ongoing maintenance plans

The mineral in our water builds up in your heater clogging heat exchangers and settling at the bottom of the tank. Flushing your unit once a year is key to reducing this buildup which can shorten the life and cause other issues.

Installed to meet current code

The plumbing code is updated continually. We keep up with all the changes making sure your installation is done right.
