"During my shopping phase
did a good job in presenting and explaining all the options for replacing our heating system. For installation
" was able to complete all work in a single day. The workers were courteous, professional & worked efficiently. With the dual heating zones and connection between the boiler & indirect-fired water heater, the installation was a significant plumbing project. Nevertheless everything was installed, and instructions on operation of the thermostats via the internet was provided. The Android phone app works well for monitoring & controlling both thermostats . The system has worked well over the past year, and
was responsive to my concerns. There was an issue concerning the routing of the gas line to the boiler. During a recent followup visit
corrected to routing to my satisfaction.

"My water heater was getting old, and since I didn't have a drain
under it I decided preventative replacement was in order.
, the" owner, responded to my call and we talked through water heater options. He recommended I go with a larger water heater than I had, as the cost is about the same in purchase price and operating/electric usage. I did some more research and found this to be true, then asked him to install a more energy efficient unit that they normally install. He gave me a very reasonable quote for the installation, and he ordered the water heater.
isn't always great about responding to email, but that's really not a problem. He not only is the plumber, but also runs the company, so it's understandable that he can't always respond to emails in a timely manner. He is responsive via phone, though. During installation,
and his assistant were careful in my home and left it clean after installation. The cost was hundreds less than any of the other quotes I received, and the work was very good. I will call
the next time I need plumbing work.

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.)

Keep your water heater in tip top shape longer by following these simple tips for regular maintenance that could even lower your utility bills.

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.

S. came out when promised and gave a 30 minute advance phone call before his arrival. Replaced the heater quickly and even had to reroute some gas lines to enable him to remove/replace the heater. We have a pressure regulator in the house so

Walking in to our garage on Sunday morning (of course), we found a stream of water flowing across the floor. Our hot water heater was leaking. I called

It took a little time to get the appointment on the books but all call backs were timely. The day of the appointment went well with a little bit of delay but still timely. The rep was very kind and respectful of our home. He went through our entire home checking valves hoses and lines under sinks, washer, water heater, faucets, toilets, and crawl space. He provided an estimate for a tankless water heater and updates to systems.

came out to the house at the appointment time. He was courteous and professional the whole time here. Did the whole house inspection and we finally have hot water to the washing machine... hooray! Checked the water heater and all of the interior and exterior pipes and bibs and gave great recommendations that would not cost a fortune. We will have this company back in the near future to repair/replace the needed items. Thank you,

It went better than I expected. let me explain. We bought a new dishwasher and it looked like more of a job that I wanted to handle myself. The old washer was put in before the tile floor was complete. I thought we would have to disassemble the old to put in the new. this is when the expertise and know how came in.

were on time for the appointment and were very personable and professional. They carefully and neatly covered the floors, moved a rug out of the way so that it would not be damaged. They explained every step of the work to be done and were very efficient so that our hot water was only off for a short amount of time.

After removing the old tank they cleaned the space and snaked out the overflow drain before installing the new water heater.

I highly recommend
