No electrical gadget is meant to last forever, and a homeowner should understand the basics of water heater replacement. The Youtube video “Electric Water Heater Installation” shows how an expert sets up the new heater so you can do it at home as well. Let’s find out more!
If something seems wrong with your water heater and you’re not getting hot water, you have to check it before buying a new one. The problem might just be a damaged heating element that’s easily replaceable.
However, if you see things like water on the floor, you need a new tank. Check the labels on the tank to ensure that you buy the same size and electrical specifications. That way, you won’t have to change much about your current setup.
The first step before changing anything is to check the water pressure outside with your outdoor spigot. The ideal number is between 50 and 60 PSI. If the pressure is higher, you might have to install a pressure-reducing valve. You might also consider installing an expansion tank to relieve the load on the main tank.
