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.

Removed the old Water heater from Second floor and as the stairs had carpet, laid a few set of additional clothing so that my carpet does not get damaged.... explained what he was doing and how to troubleshoot if any issues and what to look for when in trouble... also suggested that we get inspected and he also got us scheduled for the same.
Overall it was a perfect experience without any issues.
Thank you for your service.

The team showed up at approximately 11:45 am after calling ahead (within the time range specified). He and I looked at the hot water heater in the attic, and he agreed that the 10-year-old unit had a leak and needed replacement. He asked me at that point if I wanted a permit, which was required by the City of Flower Mound, or if the replacement should be performed without a permit. I was concerned immediately at that being an option. The difference being that if the work was done under permit, it would cost more, and couldn't be done until the next day, since they needed time to pull the permit. He provided an estimate in writing with a permit fee once I said I wanted a permit, but did not specify the replacement heater manufacturer and model they intended to install. I looked up the Flower Mound permit requirements on the internet to be sure I was working with good information, and they are clear and explicit.
I called the office to ask what manufacturer and model heater they planned to install, which they identified for me and appeared to be a good quality option with their markup being approximately 20% over standard supply house price based on an internet

. However, when I asked about when they could do the install with a permit, I was told they didn't like to do installs in my city because of the more rigorous code - the person on the phone (
Las Cruces Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
) told me that the installer had to "wait all day" for the inspector. When I cited the $100 fee on the quote, he said that only covered the permit fee with the city.
I asked directly if they would perform the installation with a permit.

put me on hold to check, and came back and said they would only do the install if I did not have a city permit. I think this is very concerning as a homeowner. Expecting homeowners to pay for services in a city that requires a permit by ordinance without a permit is not the kind of company that should have a good rating on Angie's List. It may be as
Las Cruces Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
as this vendor updating their service area to say "
Las Cruces Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
County excluding Flower Mound" or when someone calls from this town, simply saying they don't service the area. I don't have a concern that don't pass inspection in other areas, but to have unpermitted work performed on a house can cause issues when trying to sell the home or with regard to insurance.

I have used their services a couple of times over the last few years whenever there has been a plumbing issue. They have always seemed to do a good job. From what I can recall, there were no problems with the price. The technician completed the installation all in one day and hauled the old one away. My experience with them was fine.
