Our New Water Heater Installation

We offer various options for your new water heater installation depending on your needs. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Humboldt & Del Norte, we can install the following types of home water heaters:

  • Conventional Water Heaters - A conventional water heater keeps hot water stored in a large tank until you’re ready to use it. The water is heated by electricity or natural gas, and a high-efficiency water heater can reduce the cost of heating water by up to 7%.
