"I feel this "BIG" deal was deceiving! I paid $949 online as you advertized.When the tech arrived he started adding items such as an expension tank @ 160.00," a gas permit for 87.00, tax for 32.00 and an access fee (installation fee) of 99.99! for a total of $1412.14. The heater was in a basement with 10 stairs down and he charged an access fee for that. However i helped him lift it into place on one end of the heater--it took less than 5 minutes to lift it downstairs! If anybody takes advantage of your BIG deals they better ask more questions or be in a tight spot of needing the water tank and being over-a-barrel to pay up. By the way i got a bid for the tank from
LA 0 for $1200.00 . ALSO THE TECH FORGOT TO INSTALL THE EARTHQUAKE STRAPS AND SO HE WILL HAVE TO COME BACK. also i waited at least 15 minutes on the phone to get an operator to order the BIG deal.

"I spoke with the company on August 25th and they said they would do the job on August 28th. They arrived late on the 28th and informed the tenant they would be" back on September 2 to install the water heater. They did not show up on September 2nd and when contacted said they had not even ordered the new unit. After considerable discussion with HMS, they stated they would charge the standard $100 deductible PLUS $75 to haul away the old tank and additional cost for any connection issues (these additional charges are never typical). They then agreed to install the water heater mid-next week. Unbelievable! I have refused service and contacted a reputable company to do the work tomorrow for the same overall expense. HMS will reimburse. I would never recommend this company even to an enemy.

When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

Angie Hicks responds to a homeowner who says her water heater is past its expected lifetime.

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.

Your family’s needs play a large role in whether a storage or tankless water heater is right for you.

A tankless water heater takes up less room and heats water on demand. It can last more than twice as long as a standard tank water heater. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Patti C. of Mobile, Alabama)

There are good reasons why many folks choose to go tankless. Learn why saving money isn’t one of them.

You never know when you will need to shut off the gas.

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)
Water Heaters

Changes coming this year will make water heaters more energy efficient, but may create some difficulties for homeowners.

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.

I've seen and heard mixed reviews.  They aren't really popular here due to our super hard water which clogs and rots everything it sits in.  A company I used to work for tried electric units about 10 years ago in several homes but had to replace many of them within a few years because the build-up from the hard water hindered their productivity to little more than enough supply to run a sink.  I've heard better success with gas units since there are no electric elements to burn out and gas can get hotter, faster to get through the deposits on the tubing walls inside the unit.

 

Standard electric water heater usually take a 30 amp circuit so they are often wired with 10 guage wire.  Electric on-demand units large enough to service an entire house usually take 50 amps (or more) from what I've researched in the past.  That means they need a 50 amp breaker and will be wired with 6 guage wire.  By the time you factor in the initial cost of buying the much more expensive on-demand unit and rewiring for it I'm not sure you'll save money in the long run. 

 

A better and cheaper option would be to put a timer on your standard water heater so it only kicks on during typical demand times.  They have override switches so you can turn it to cycle normally when you are off of work or need it during the day/night if not during the preset times.  A cheaper point of use water heater at the kitchen sink will ensure you have hot water there even when the main heater is off.  This is usually the point that requires hot water the most frequently.  Remember that your water heater will hold hot water for over an hour once it has cycled off.  Take advantage of that.

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 were supposed to do a whole house inspection which he did none of and having to see until they didn’t hold the water flusher was 10 minutes of their work. I should have done it myself. I thought the whole house inspection that’s something they would go around looking for pipes and check things out and that didn’t happen.

They unplugged my freezer and didn't tell me. When I went down five months later to get something, everything in the freezer was spoiled. Everything was rotten and molded. It was a total mess. The electrical box on the outside that they worked on worked before they put the new plug in, but my husband plugged something it do it and it blew out my microwave and a circuit breaker downstairs. When I called them back to tell them, they said it was my fault because they offered me the home surge protector. We never needed a home surge protector before. I felt like I was forced into doing all the work, that something bad would happen in my house if I didn't get the work done. It was the way I was presented with everything. They were like, "You have to do this, this and this."

Telephone help was exceptionally pleasant. It would have been nice if they/she had asked, "Oh you're in a new house - have you checked to see if the gas line is open?"

I had already received a quote from another company my home warranty provider had sent out. While the cost for the unit and installation appeared to be the same; the other company's price did not include dispisal of the old heater, a new drain

came out the same day I called, but due to the late hour and amount of work required, had to come back the following morning. They arrived at the time they said they would, went right to work, and had everything completed in about 3 hours. They protected the floors, made minimal mess, and even offered to vacuum the floor to pick up bits of insulation. The men who did the work were friendly but professional. The senior of the two even told me about a different issue he observed while in the attic that he suggested I have someone check. At my request he explained how to shut off the gas and water to the new unit in the event I have an issue in the future and also explained the best way to drain the unit annually in order to get the maximum life. They appear to have done quality work at a fair price, and I would definitely use them again.

They were extremely professional. The water heater developed a slow leak and needed to be replaced. The company sent out the techs as promised and performed the required work within promised time frame. Also, nice that they do not charge extra for coming out on the weekend. I would definitely use them again in the future.

He showed up with everything that was required to do the job the first time and was very meticulous about his work. Cleaned the entire pit and surrounding area. Showed me the price list from his supplier for the parts and wrote a detailed invoice all broken out. I have used them before and they will always be my first call for any plumbing projects or problems that I have.
They also specialize in repairing water service from what I understand.
