called me within an hour or so of me filing a claim with my home warranty company. He said he could fit me in that day in the evening." After diagnosing the issue and determining there was going to be an additional fee due to the difficulty of reaching the heater, he informed me what the Home warranty would and would not cover so I could determine if I wanted to move forward. Within 20 minutes of leaving my house, he had already called the home warranty company to fill them in. The home warranty company called me to confirm I wanted to proceed with the replacement of the heater motor and that I would pay the convenience fee and I agreed. It was already 6pm by this point but Mr
and the home warranty company were taking care of business. Mr.
called to arrange a time to come and do the work as soon as he received the parts. He completed the work without any issues and now the heater is purring like a kitten.

"n In a culture where consumer service is lack
, I was overwhelmed with the entire experience we had with
's." Following a home inspection to facilitate sale of our home , we ended up with a list of non compliance code issues. We had dealt with three other services related to the other items on the list and were feeling as if we had been locked in a room with used car salesmen for a month! it would be an understatement to say we felt like sitting ducks with a check book , vulnerable to many who came to our home to clear the to do list from electricians to painters. The last on the list was the vent pipe. We called
's after I saw reviews on Angie's list. The contact person was astute, friendly, efficient and recognized our anxiety and urgency related to Inspections. She scheduled prompt service and even directed us to coupon on Angie's site. The Next morning two men arrived after notifying per phone they would be arriving within 20 minutes. They were organized, and explained in detail the work to be done and estimate. 45 minutes later , for a fair and reasonable cost , the pipe had been extended , double walled and up to code. We were very pleased with everything . They restored our faith in decency of the service industry . I want to also say that during the instillation , the provider identified a potential issue that could arise for us later if not handled. For NO ADDITIONAL COST , the provider generously , and thoughtfully assisted with resolving this issue that was NOT necessarily their service goal . They went way above and beyond to provide a competent , pleasant , and successful consumer experience. I will always use them if needed in the future and have told all my friends and family .

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?

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.

Manufacturers recommend getting your water heater flushed annually, but what does “flushed” really mean?

Changes coming this year will make water heaters more energy efficient, but may create some difficulties for homeowners.

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.

Angie's Answers


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.





I've seen and heard mixed reviews.  They aren't really popular here due to our super hard water which clogs and rots everything it sits in.  A company I used to work for tried electric units about 10 years ago in several homes but had to replace many of them within a few years because the build-up from the hard water hindered their productivity to little more than enough supply to run a sink.  I've heard better success with gas units since there are no electric elements to burn out and gas can get hotter, faster to get through the deposits on the tubing walls inside the unit.


Standard electric water heater usually take a 30 amp circuit so they are often wired with 10 guage wire.  Electric on-demand units large enough to service an entire house usually take 50 amps (or more) from what I've researched in the past.  That means they need a 50 amp breaker and will be wired with 6 guage wire.  By the time you factor in the initial cost of buying the much more expensive on-demand unit and rewiring for it I'm not sure you'll save money in the long run. 


A better and cheaper option would be to put a timer on your standard water heater so it only kicks on during typical demand times.  They have override switches so you can turn it to cycle normally when you are off of work or need it during the day/night if not during the preset times.  A cheaper point of use water heater at the kitchen sink will ensure you have hot water there even when the main heater is off.  This is usually the point that requires hot water the most frequently.  Remember that your water heater will hold hot water for over an hour once it has cycled off.  Take advantage of that.

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.

It went great. Nice fellas, easy to work with. No BS. No time waisting. Feel like I am in good hands at every step. Communication is never an issue. Truth is, I don't have too much to worry about. Things look great and feel solid. Tiles are fantastic, piping under the house is repaired and working.

is my go-to handyman! I have a rental property & he can handle most repairs that crop up as well as help out with improvements. There was a carjacking on our street & I was worried about security, so
New Orleans Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
picked up some motion sensor lights for me at Home Depot & installed them around the outside of the house. This made me feel much more secure, & he found time to fit me in even though he was busy with a lot of other jobs. He also repaired my hot water heater after I couldn't get it re-lit after my house was fumigated, fixed the latch on a sagging gate, & painted a cabinet that was stained from water damage. I already have a running list for the next jobs & I'm glad that

always works to make sure he can find time to help with any problem large or small, & goes the extra mile to keep it easy for me when I can't be on-site to deal with things myself. He's a great guy to have on speed dial.

Water was leaking under the house and the plumber determined it was coming from behind the wall in the shower. Using the access door, he replaced the leaking pipe. We have used
New Orleans Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
for 34 years. They have replaced out hot water heater, installed pipes for washer hook-up and gas dryer hook-up, fixes clogged drains and toilets, and replaced faucets and installed a kitchen sink. They come when they promise and this is usually a day or two after you call, unless it is an emergency and then they come the same day.
- Jacqueline C.

Their office/phone response was polite, well informed, and effective. They came out promptly when promised. Their presentation was extremely polite and professional. Their work was excellent. Their bill is appropriate for professional services, which means it does sting a bit, but it's fair.

Great! They were out within a few hours and had the work done as quick as possible. Very friendly and even cleaned up after. Had been quoted $400 more from another bigger company. Price was very reasonable for the work that had to be done. Will be recommending them to our

I bought a new home and (sure enough) the water heater quit working shortly after I moved in. I attempted to have the water heater replaced and/or repaired by my home warranty company and several other plumbers. None of my efforts in this regard was very productive. The home warranty company gave me the run-around and the other plumbers that I contacted told me that the water heater was no longer under warranty and that I'd have to buy a new one. At my wit's end, I sought a reliable plumber on Angie's List and found
New Orleans Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. They were great to work with because they made several calls on my behalf and discovered that the old water heater was under warranty and had been recalled due to faulty parts. They had a new water heater delivered and installed that day. They even came back to my home to check the connections when I called and thought that I smelled leaking gas. While they are a bit pricey, I would say that their service and workmanship is well worth the price (especially in a city like a New Orleans where there are so many bad service workers). With
New Orleans Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
, you'll spend a pretty penny, but it will be worth it.
- Kyle C.

The plumbers arrived right on time and talked to me briefly about the job. I came back three hours later and not only had they completed pulling all the appliances, but they were sweeping my kitchen and living room. The mess they were sweeping up was created by my carpenter so they were cleaning up a mess they didn't make!! Fantastic! I have had friends use them and also have had good experiences. I would recommend these plumbers for sure!
