Water Heater Permits: To Have or Not to Have?
Is it time to replace your water heater? Or, have you thought about upgrading to a more energy efficient or tankless style heater? Water heaters are important fixtures in our home, and although they all provide us with the same comfort, necessity and luxury, we do not often think of them until they begin leaking and we need a new on fast. However, whether you need a water heater now, or are planning a project in your home, one of the very first things that should be done or considered is a city permit.
Many homeowners believe that permits are only for major projects and remodels. However, this is not always the case. When is it necessary to get a permit when hiring San Diego plumbers? Most San Diego plumbing companies will send a plumber out to explain the job and during the estimating and discovery process, you should ask if the work that is being done requires a permit. Bill Howe Plumbing has over 75 hard working San Diego plumbers that do a wide variety of work, from cleaning drains to installing quality water heaters. And, since the plumbing code is always changing, all San Diego plumbing companies should keep up to date and be able to inform you of current city requirements, as well as being able to comply with the current code.
If you are making the repair or improvement yourself, it is best to check your local plumbing code before starting work on, installing, or replacing a water heater. These codes are put in place for the protection of you and the public and if you have a city inspector at your home, he or she may check on current projects to ensure compliance.
