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.

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.

If you choose to hire a professional, then Bill  Howe Plumbing is the right choice. Did you know that  Bill Howe has won “Best San Diego Plumbers” two years in a row, 2012 & 2013, from the Union Tribune Reader’s Poll. We have dedicated technicians that are highly trained and stay up to date on all of the latest code. Plus, we offer free estimates and our San Diego plumbers will make the process easy and answer all of your questions. Bill Howe is also not limited to plumbing, we offer services in heating & air and restoration & flood remediation, so if your water heater has burst in the night and you need help tackling the flood before it damages your home, you know who to call!

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
