"Everything was done when they said it would be done and for the price they quoted. I am really impressed with the knowledge. I thought it would be a nightmare and have a lot of problems." It was great. These guys know what they are doing. No problems at all. The system works great.

"My appointment was between 9-11 a.m. and the plumbers did not arrive until 1:07 pm. Once they arrived, the were very pleasant and professional. However, the T&P Drain Line was" leaking for 2 days until another plumber came out for a different reason and discovered the problem.

"It was good all they way round. It was installed correctly, quickly and there was no additional charge. They did a good job and that was fine. They had to add a tank at the bottom of" the tank and they also had to get the permit fee to do the permit for the city that we were working in. Those were the two costs that were added in and that was reasonable. They responded when I called and they were there right on time.

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.

They did a great job of installing it, and I was very impressed with the salesperson, and they were pleasant people to work with and knowledable and it was such a pleasurable experience. We really like the ten year warranty we received as well!
- Mary R.

Art was highly responsive, came in with a very competitive price, mobilized extremely quickly, and showed up personally for both the estimate and the installation, to make sure that the intangibles I'd mentioned were taken into account at critical junctures. The team was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and clean & considerate. I frankly can't think of any complaints or even constructive criticism!

After a bad experience with a different company, I called
Fort Wayne Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
and White, which is what I should have done in the first place.
They sent out someone to give me a no-cost estimate on my job. Good thing he did, because he noticed some things that needed updating. For example, my older water heater had a 3 inch pipe, while the code is now 4 inch. (I knew about this code change, so no surprise there.) By doing the estimate, he was able to tell me what to expect and how much it would cost.
On the day of installation, two very professional, very personable men came to install the new hot water heater. They were careful of my house, using drop cloths the whole way, even though they were just going into an unfinished basement. I was home and working the whole time, so they didn't play a radio or do anything noisy (other than the normal noise of their job).
At the end, I compared prices between
Fort Wayne Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
and White and another, "cheaper" company. Guess what?

At 2pm on Sunday I noticed water running out of the bottom of my water heater. I called
Fort Wayne Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
and left my information with an answering service. My call was promptly returned. I gave the plumber the location of my residence and the size of my water heater. He told me the service charge to come out was $59.00. I asked if there was an additional charge for Sunday and he said "it will cost a little more if I come out today". He also told me that if I was incorrect on the size of the water heater he would not be able to replace it until Monday. I agreed to wait until Monday morning to avoid the additional Sunday charge. The plumber told me he would be at my home by 8:30 and he would call first. When the plumber did not show by 9:00 I called to make sure I was still on the schedule. I was told the plumber was on an emergency flood and they could get someone out around 10:30. I then verified the service call amount which was quoted to me on Sunday and was told that because I live in Lake Las Vegas there would be an additional $111 charge even though it is within the city of

It turned out well. They were able to come out the next day. They were quick. Everybody else couldn't do us for a week. My only complaint was that they banged up the water heaters but nobody sees them. They got back to us in a timely manner. My husband did most of the work and he had no complaints. The price seemed in line with everything we googled.
