"I found
through an Angie's List deal and it worked out great. I came home Thursday night to discover my water heater leaking. I called" in on Friday morning and I talked to
in the office to set up an appointment and they were able to come out on Saturday morning to do the replacement.
was very knowledgeable and patient in talking me through the different types of water heaters to choose from and I ultimately went with the Rheem 50
. gas unit. T was the guy who came out to do the work and he was great as well - very friendly and efficient. Overall, they made this stressful situation much easier to deal with and they did great work!

"Called 8pm Thursday night after discovering leaking hot water heater in lower level. Got an excellent quote ($1350) to replace a 75
gas" hot water heater. I had gotten other quotes of $1700, $2100, range of $2000-$3000 from others listed here on AngiesList. They called me on Friday and arrived at the house at noon. They removed and replaced the heater in 1 hour!! No mess, cleaned up after themselves. I am VERY Pleased!! I will use these guys again for other plumbing needs.

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.

More energy-efficient water heaters are coming this year. Learning the facts will help you to replace your water heater on your terms, rather than letting it become a last-minute problem. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Joseph K. of Boston)

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.

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.

Poor, never got response on multiple calls and emails for a finished receipt. Receipt was supposed to be sent to me electronically, never came. Plus, I got multiple phone calls and bills from AHS Home warranty about their $75 deductible, that was included in the check I wrote to AP Plumbing. Not sure if this is an AHS issue, or if it was AP Plumbing.

The gentleman who came arrived on time and was very polite and professional. He explained what's involved in a changeover of provider (it's not that

) and recommended waiting until the tanks were nearly empty. The price per

that he quoted was much better than I'm paying now. When I do make a change, I'm very likely to go with this company.

You know it is going to be a no-good-very-bad-rotten day when you go to take your morning shower and there is no hot water… it has happened before, and not that long ago, and you know what the problem is – the hot water heater.
That was the start of my day at 5:30 and going into the utility room I saw that the hot water heater was leaking a steady stream into the emergency drain

. I turned off the water supply and then got onto Angie’s List to find a plumber.
I called

and left a message and had a return call from the owner,

, within 15 minutes. I explained the situation and
Melbourne Beach Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was at the house later that morning. He arrived in a large van which contained all the supplies needed for the job – including several water heaters. This allowed him to work without once leaving to run and get supplies or part.
To jump to the end: we had a new tank-less water heater installed and working before

left that same day! We’d rather be without power than without hot water so we were very pleased!

did an amazing job and an incredible amount of work without assistance (other than me cleaning up some water and such) and without taking a break or leaving the house. Start to finish he worked to remove the old, busted water heater and
install the new tank-less one. This entailed running a new gas supply line (thankfully the incoming gas supply was right there at the utility room) and removing the old exhaust assembly.

was able to put the new exhaust assembly into the old, existing hole through the wall – which saved time and saved me from having to worry about yet another hole in the wall.

ran new piping and got the water running again the same day. This is our 3rd water heater, and our 1st (and hopefully last) tank-less.

when you need help with plumbing. He’ll certainly be the first one we call in the future.

The technician came out and inspected the site. He then hauled one of the water tanks down the stairs and opened the box, where he found some damage to the tank. He then said, "You don't want this one," and hauled it all the way back up the stairs and loaded back onto his truck. He left and returned about an hour later with two other tanks, and then proceeded to install them in serial. Very clean, prompt, and friendly. Would use them again for sure.

I scheduled them to come out and they offered a 40-50

. We were supposed to reschedule, but he never called or emailed me, even in response to my own emails or calls. They had forgotten about me. Four months after that, I finally got a hold of them and they stated the code on the lockbox had changed. (It hadn't.) By that time, they wanted to raise the price to $899. The office staff is wonderful, but the technicians didn't follow through with the deal.
