"I called this morning at 8AM and a window was setup from 10AM to 3PM for today. The plumber called at 11:30AM to let me know he would be here within 30 minutes and arrived at 11:50AM." We discussed the issue and the fact that I wanted to go ahead and replace the hot water heater. He was able to remove the old on in less than an hour. He then went to pick up the new water heater which took about 30 minutes. Once back with the new water heater he had the new one installed in less than 90 minutes. I am really satisfied with the quick service, great price, and quality of the work.

"Company rep and estimator came to review my current system and evaluate the condition and determine if old system needed maintenance or replacement. Existing system was low-end system" with 15 years age and had been neglected for many years, it could be cleaned up but was on last leg. After considering the cost to renovate old system vs. replace with new, I chose to go with the new system since there would be a warranty, higher efficiency, and quiet operation. Waters reviewed house duct work for sizing and locations, considered house size sq ft., and provided 3 options on the replacement system. I went with the middle level system. System was ordered and work was promptly completed as promised within 1 to 2 days. All old system was removed and hauled away. After 6 months, technician came to check the operation and replace filter, all free of charge. System has worked well in both a/c and heat modes - energy bills are lower for the couple of a/c months I had old system.

when to install a new water heater

When should I replace my water heater?

Dear Angie: My water heater is past its expected lifetime. Should I automatically replace it or wait until it fails?

Installing a water heater is best left to a professional while homeowners can perform key maintenance.

Water heaters

Standard storage tank water heaters typically need to be replaced after about a decade, but they can last years longer with some homeowner maintenance. When the time comes to buy a new one, there are more options for consumers to consider.

It's smart to take action to reduce energy use when you're away from home. But find out why top electricians say turning off circuit breakers isn't a good idea.

If you notice moisture around your water heater, you may need to replace it. But first, make sure the water isn't coming from a leak in the fittings or connections to the tank, or from the temperature/pressure overflow pipe, instead of the water heater itself. (Photo by Water Heaters Only Inc.)

Rumblings? Leaks? Rusty water? More than 10 years old? Don’t wait for a catastrophe: Be alert for these indicators that your water heater is about to fail.

Not only should you know where your water heater is, you should have clear access to it, says Carpenter. (Photo courtesy of Water Heaters Only Inc.)

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

The primary complaint about tankless water heaters is that, unless you pay for a really oversized one, they do not keep up with high demands like clothes washer or tub or shower, or if you have multiple hot water demands going at one time.

The reason hot water heaters are used is because they can heat up and store enough water for an ordinary demand like a shower or clothes washing, and larger ones like 50-60 gallons can handle multiple simultaneous demands. Out 60 gallon heater handles washing machine, dish wahser, and a shower simultaneously without going from hot to warm. An on-demand system heats the water as it flows through the heater, with production of hot water having to equal the total demand at any instant. This they can rarely do - especially gas-fired ones, for which the power is usually much cheaper than with electricity.

Google the search phrase - on demand water heaters

to read articles on the issue, and EPA and EnergyStar program writeups. Consumer Reports also has comparisons and evaluations (though you have to subscribe to read review articles).

There could be. Different municipalities have different rules (codes). However, I have never heard of a plumber being the code enforcement guy. I have never heard of a plumber being able to collect a fine from a homeowner. It may cost you $150 to bring it up to code, but that should be included in the repair cost. You would need to check with your city (usually Department of Code Enforcement or Plumbing Commission). If he put it in writing, you need to send them a copy.
?
Make sure they get a permit if required. Ask if they will haul away the old. Type of new heater installed and tank warrantee. What kind of parts will the price include, you should have an expansion tank installed and make sure they counter balance the pressure to match the static pressure in the home. Should also include new dielectic unions, do not reuse the old ones. See what the rate for extras is in case they need to do additional work. Check references if possible.

and his staff are always punctual, professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable. They give fair estimates and stick to them. They explain things thoroughly (I don't know much about plumbing) and patiently. I have recommended RT Plumbing to multiple friends/family members and have received positive feedback from them as well.

I couldn't believe I actually got an answer when I called at 3 in the morning during a flood . Our sump pumps (yes plural) stopped working during 7 inches of rain on a Saturday night/Sunday morning.
Louisville Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
came out and did a wonderful job installing a new sump pump at 4 am. while standing in 2 foot of cold dirty water. Then because they charge a minimum of one hour , he hung around for the entire hour to make sure it was working properly. I will definitely recommend.

The Tech. arrived and removed the old hot water heater. He installed the new one, cleaned up the work area and finished the job. Just as reliable as the other times we have used his service.

Jarboes scheduled an appointment for the same day that I called. The plumber arrived on time, and was clean, professional and courteous. He gave me an estimate for the Water Heater, which he stuck with, even though he needed to do some extra work to install the Water Heater. He also did not charge me extra for the toilet leak.

Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would use Jarboes again.

I have used
Louisville Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
's Plumbing several times. They have install a new (quiet) garbage disposal for me and new bathroom faucets in both of my bathrooms. After my positive experience with them on previous services, I called them whey my water heater quit producing hot water. They came out the same day and found that a sensor unit went out. Unfortunately, the part had to be ordered due to the brand of unit I owned. They had the part in a couple of days and installed it the day they received the part. The people are very pleasant and professional and cleaned up the area before leaving. I will definitely use them again.

A day prior to the service, I noticed my water heater leaking horribly. I called several services, but
Louisville Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was the most professional sounding over the phone. They came out that day and gave me a free estimate. Out of four estimates, theirs was the third highest, but the plumber (

) was very professional and was very comfortable to talk with. I asked a lot of questions, and he was very good at providing detailed, logical responses.

On service day, he arrived exactly when he said he would, and was done 30 minutes earlier than he had estimated. He gave me a $30 coupon and I used it for that job. He cleaned up the mess, as well. The soldering work was very well done, and the heater has performed exactly as expected. Overall, I loved the service they gave me, and the product appears to be worth the price paid (but only time will truly tell).
