Make Sure the Company You Choose Knows What They’re Doing
As we alluded to, anytime you have work done involving gas lines, it’s very important to choose a professional who knows exactly what they’re doing. Make sure the company you choose has performed similar work in the past by simply asking them up front if they’re done this kind of work before. In addition, look for professional licenses like the ones that the pros at Performance Plumbing have, which help prove and document professional proficiency. Finally, make sure the company you’re considering demonstrates a strong level of professional knowledge – no matter who you choose to do the job, they should at least be able to answer all of your questions and explain all the details in the process of the water/gas replacement job you need done, just as the Performance Plumbing team always does for our customers. Finally, a professional company who takes their craft seriously will demonstrate and share their knowledge by maintaining a blog like this one, or sending tips to their customers regularly.

Remember: Safety First
When working with water/gas replacement like replacing an old water heater, it’s often a good idea to have a fire extinguisher on hand and ensure the gas valve is shut off before work starts. Make sure the repair person takes the right precautions like visually inspecting the pilot light.

Reputation Matters
When deciding who to choose for the water/gas replacement job, it’s important to check up on their reputation, which is a strong indicator of their performance. If their performance in the past was poor, it’s often an indicator that their future performance will also be weak, whereas a company with a strong track record is more likely to perform at a high level on your job. Just take a look at Performance Plumbing’s Yelp page, for example, and you’ll see a long list of customers who are happily satisfied and grateful enough to take the time to write positive reviews. These endorsements are the lifeblood of any reputable company who can point to a strong body of previous work to prove a high level of quality and competency.

Got it? It’s not that complicated after all, right? Finding a good company for water/gas replacement doesn’t have to be rocket science, just make sure you don’t settle for anything less than the best. At Performance Plumbing, we’ve got the experience, knowledge and track record to prove we’re among the best around, so we’re a clear choice if you’re ready to get started.
