The Position of Your Water Heater Matters—Here’s Why
Believe it or not, how well you receive hot water in your home depends upon a number of factors, including the placement of your water heater. Read on as A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, your go-to specialist in water heater repair in Lake Elsinore, CA, discusses why the position of your unit really does matter.
Placement Matters For Conservation
Heating water for your household to use consumes a significant amount of energy. Help your hot water heater out by keeping your plumbing fixtures in mind during placement. The farther your water has to travel through pipes, the more heat is lost along the way, causing the water heater to work harder.
Monthly Costs, Too
Investing in a tankless water heater is one way to lower your monthly utility bills. Another is to install your unit closer to your most used faucets. Placing your unit near the kitchen or bathroom means less energy needs to be used to push hot water to its location.
Smart Placement Prevents Water Damage
If you’ve ever had to call a local plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, you might know the damage that can happen when a water heater leaks. It’s wise not to install your unit near valuables, on the carpet, or anywhere that would make addressing a leak difficult.
Furthermore, if your water heater installation is done in a poor location, structural damage to your home may occur if your unit springs a leak, particularly if the wall it is placed near adjoins another. Having your storage tank installed on a stand offers good protection from minor leaks.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
