"My experience with this company was beyond exceptional. From the time I first contacted them about my problem to completion of the job. They were courteous and" informative. Listening to me and explaining everything in a way I could understand. I bought the package deal, knowing they would then come to my house and evaluate everything which might increase the price.
B and
came to my house right on time and I was very pleasantly surprised that there was absolutely no pressure for any upgrades. They were patient and explained everything in a way I could understand. I did select a few options but declined some more expensive things. They wrote out the estimate in detail (unlike another company who wrote a lump sum estimate that was almost three times what I ended up paying
). They were quick and efficient in the installation and even left the laundry room floor cleaner than when they arrived. I cannot recommend this company highly enough!

"Mr.
definitely knows his business. He found solutions as of course there were some issues with my older house. He explained everything." The emptying and removal of the old
and installation of the new one were done very professionally and quickly. I was very pleased with the entire experience from my initial phone call to the end of the installation. I definitely and highly recommend using

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.

My water heater was not working well. I checked with a couple companies to find out I would need to replace it. I was considering a tankless water heater but wasn't positive that's what I wanted or needed. After doing thorough research and although I was talking with what seemed to be knowledgable people I wanted to be sure.
I came across
Lake Wales Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. they have a website where I found: http://quickwaterheater.com/pros-and-cons-of-a-tankless-water-heater/ After reviewing the website which was very easy to use I called to ask a few more questions. I had the feeling of speaking with a friend who had my best interests in mind of which was also very knowledgable! Together we were leaning towards a tank water heater but with the right questions from the plumber we decided on tankless! The job was a big task but the plumber was diligent and made the installation in a timely manner for what he needed to do. The cost was average and very competitive for a tankless yet the service and job done was grade A+. I wish I would have discovered

Extremely competent and knowledgeable staff. Came out and took over an hour of measurements at the house before providing a price quote. After the quote we scheduled the install which took 6-8 hours.
There are several steps to convert to tankless. A larger 2 pound gas pressure gas meter needs to be installed. Regulators for every other gas appliance in the house need to be installed. The plumbing work has to be tested and inspected by the city. The staff at
Lake Wales Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
coached us through each step so we knew exactly what to do and how to handle it.
After the installation our kitchen

was not working. I thought it was due to the new tankless

heater. They came out (free) and discovered there was something stuck in the

line. They fixed it and now everything is working perfectly. We have 3 showers and a deep soaker tub and we can run all of them at once all night long if we wanted to do so!

Overall it went very well. A two man took care of the job in about 2 hours. They called ahead, arrived on time, and explained everything to me clearly. They also ensured that everything, from an
Lake Wales Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
permitting perspective, was taken care of.
The original quote was $1,210 (which included removal of water heater, new 12yr 40
Lake Wales Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
water heater and thermal expansion tank). Tacked on additional $90 to replace some fittings, etc.
The water heater retails for ~$650 at home depot, so paid about the same in labor.
Being raised in the mid-west with a father who was always doing these types of things on his own I have a habit of always feeling like I am paying too much for services like these. However, when you put it into perspective, ~600 bucks for someone who knows what they are doing (and the peace of mind) seems like a good deal to me.

They did a good job. They told me they flushed the water heater but I didn't find a single drop of water or noise confirming this. But I wasn't in the area at the time. I haven't had any problems with my furnace or water heater since the tune ups. They were very nice and cleaned well afterwards.
