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.

Water Heater Installation And Repair reviews in Modesto

We came home from vacation on a Saturday night to a water heater that had leaked all over our finished basement. We had 2 water heaters, 1 was for an old solar pre-heat system that we no longer used. We call various providers on Sunday and left messages.
Modesto Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was the first and only one who called us back on Monday and as you may expect we needed work done ASAP as we had to turn off all the water in the house in order to clean up the mess. My husband explained the situation and what we wanted done ( remove both heaters and cut/remove any extra pipes that had lead to/from the outside solar system and install new heater). Fortunately, American had a cancellation and was able to come out Tuesday morning between 8-10 am and had phone quoted what we felt was a reasonable price. Since we could not really wait for others to call us back we contracted with American to do this work. Very glad we did.

showed up on Tuesday morning about 9 and after my husband explained the work needed they got right to work. Everything went very smooth. They finished up about 12:30 and the new heater was in, working and the extra piping was all gone or capped. We were very, very pleased with their work and they actually came in 4 dollars under the phone bid!!

Investigation and Installation appointment went as planned. The installing plumbing tech did not write the Model and Serial Number of the installed unit. Sent pictures of the new unit data tag via email and the matter was resolved within a couple of days.

They did exactly what they said they would do. They showed up when they told me they would be there and performed the work as expected. The work was completed for what the estimate was quoted. They were done in several hours and stayed on task until the work was completed. They followed up with me when they were done and waited while I tested the water system in the house to ensure there were no issues. Well done!

The plumber kept us up to date with their expected arrival timne, arrived on time, and completed the job very quickly. They used great care in removing our old water heater and bringing in the new unit. They worked quickly and cleaned up after their work was done. They explained the new unit to us, and we felt very comfortable and happy with the purchase. We would definitely call them again for any other plumbing needs!

I had called another company (well reviewed here on
Modesto Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
as well) that had come out, measured the closet it was housed in, and told me the opening was too narrow for the ones he had and I would have to shop for a smaller diameter water heater on my own for them to install He left within 10 minute of arriving. A bit disgruntled, I did some online shopping and learned a good deal in so doing. In my initial research for installers I had

on my short list so I called them, told them the parameters of my situation and that afternoon,

arrived. He explained to me in

's terms what needed to be done, what he would need, how much it was estimated to cost and that he could do it right now. I agreed and when he came back in with the needed paperwork & exact cost (within $5 of his estimate). About 3 hours later, I had the new one installed, up and running.
Modesto Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was polite, efficient, friendly and knowledgeable of what he was doing. But one thing that stuck out in my mind during his time installing the unit was that I asked him about other plumbing issues particular to my home. He shared what he knew in great detail but when I asked a question he could not answer, he simply said, "I don't know. You need to ask someone who specializes in that." No bull or double talk, just a straight and very honest answer. So aside from the product and the efficiency of installation, his honesty instilled an even better sense of trust that I had called the right people for this job. I would confidently call them again and/or refer them to others without hesitation! Many thanks,
