was extremely responsive and scheduled an estimate with
(who also performed the installation)" within 2 days of the request. The estimate was more competitive than the one I received from
& Son. On the day of the installation,
explained everything he was doing, and after about 7 hours, spent a lot of time explaining the entire install and operation. We are pleased with the performance of the system and the professionalism of the entire experience.

"The service provider was punctual and courteous . They discovered the existing venting system was not in good shape and not up to code and returned a second day" to replace all pieces and get it to code. They were very professional. We highly recommend tis provider.

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.

Garden City Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was very responsive to my request through Angie's list. He answered initial questions I had via email and when we were ready for a quote, we were able to set a mutual date within a couple of days. On the day of install, there was a delay in receiving the unit.
Garden City Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
kept me well informed by phone of the situation. He received the unit around 11:00 AM and was on site and ready to start around noon. The installation took about eight hours.
Garden City Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
had to open a hole through a 15 in solid rock foundation (1940's construction) for the intake and exhaust pipes, which made the installation take longer than normal. When he was finished he cleaned up and left the area in fine condition and we now have endless hot water. Throughout the process,

was attentive and responsive to my questions and concerns. He did a very professional job and I am well pleased. I will be using him for annual maintenance in about 12 months. (Rinnai requires maintenance be done on the unit annually to keep the warranty in effect).

They were friendly and professional both on the phone and in person.
We had bought and scheduled an install from Lowe's on Thurs pm. They said we would be the first on the schedule. When I called on Fri. am. they said someone would be calling me. A couple hours later Lowe's called back to see if the installer had called. I said no. The installer.

, called a bit later and said they could have someone out on Sat. between 1-4. I was not happy. I called Lowe's and asked if they had another installer. They said they didn't. I said we would never bought from them if I knew it was going to take almost 2 days to get service. I suggested they look at a different installer.
I called

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
Garden City Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
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.
