When you buy a new water heater, it's important to gauge your hot water needs accurately so that you get a heater large enough to supply them. Having done that, you can install the heater yourself, but homeowners who do sometimes make mistakes, and some of them can cause damage to the heater or even personal injury. Being aware of the common mistakes can help you avoid them and ensure a safe and efficient installation. When connecting your new water heater to the water pipes, you'll probably have to make solder connections, and a common mistake is to do this too close to the tank. The heat it takes to melt solder can also melt plastic fittings inside the tank.

Bert spent 25 years working as a home-improvement and residential construction contractor in central Florida. Homes without a centralized heating system often have electric baseboard heaters spread throughout the house. Even during normal operation, an electric baseboard heater takes a lot of abuse. Anything from carbon buildup between its thermostat's contacts to a loose electrical connection in the circuit-breaker panel can cause system failure. Troubleshooting the baseboard heater's electric circuit pinpoints the exact fault.
Troubleshooting an Electric Baseboard Heater
Baseboard heaters are effective appliances for warming a room; the natural rising heat will permeate throughout a space for a comfortable temperature. However, the heater's design locates it near the home's floor which can be difficult to access for temperature adjustments. An existing wall mounted thermostat can be installed, or wired, to a baseboard heater for easier adjustment access. Careful attention to specific wiring connections will result in a successful installation. Turn the circuit breaker off at the main electrical panel that supplies power to the existing baseboard heater and thermostat.
