"Was an Angie's List Big Deal; flush water heater. They attempted to drain the water heater to flush it. It would not drain. Seemed to be clogged with a buildup" of deposits inside. The only gripe I have is that they didn't take the initiative to inspect the rest of my plumbing system for problems like the Big Deal said would be included. I would have asked them about it, but I didn't know that was included until I reviewed the offer after they were gone. Shame on me, too.

"I have been using
for over 7 years. I first met him when he was with
and installed my dishwasher. He has been back" several time to our home... Installed our water heater, installed 3 toilets, a few other things I can't quite remember. He is friendly professional, very knowledgeable, explains things when I look confused and if I have a diy, he will tell me how to do it to save a few bucks. We trust him explicitly.

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)

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.

Water Heater Repair And Installation reviews in Leander

The installation went smoothly, they were on time and professional. The water heaters work great and we've had no issues. The recirculating pump did not work, but the owner has been very responsive about coming back out to troubleshoot the problem. The problem has not yet been resolved, but we have a follow up appointment this week. Despite the issues with the pump, I would recommend their services.

I ordered the 960.00 angies list coupon, for a full install of a new heater, and removal of the old one on a sunday afternoon. I was called a couple hours later and set up a next day install. The time was set for a window of 12-5. Around 3pm on Monday I got a call from

the tech, saying he cant get there on time, I told him being late was fine, we need the heater. So we agreed on 5:30pm.

noticed the heater might be too tall for my set up so he went and got a smaller one. He got started about 7pm. Around 9:30 he was done and on his way. Everything cleaned up and working properly. Great stuff.

No surprises, which is what I like.
Leander Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
gave me a firm quote site unseen and said there would be no additional costs or fees and he was true to his word. After doing some research I feel I got a good price for a quality product. Another Angie's List contractor was a $100 higher while a third one was $1,200 higher. This was not an emergency job but they were able to replace both within a couple of days after I called. The two installers showed up on time, they were very polite young gentlemen and they did a great job despite the 100+ degree temperatures in my attic. When removing the old units they completely wrapped them to make sure no water dripped onto the carpet when they hauled them down, little things like that impress me.
I absolutely would use

again and I highly recommend them.

We had a communication issue regarding the date of service but once we worked that out, everything went smoothly. Our hot water heater was in out pulldown attic. We received quotes to put a tankless water heater down in our finished basement. They were $400 cheaper than the other quotes. They were professional and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend them

It went very smoothly. I called and spoke to the secretary and asked that someone come look at our water heater that was leaking water. She said they would be here between 12-5. At about 11-12, I got a phone call from
Leander Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
and he said he was going to come down. He arrived about 15 minutes later. He was very personable and easy to talk to, very professional. We discussed what kind of water to get and called up his boss to make sure we could get it. He gave me the price for it which I agreed to. He went down in the basement and started taking the old one down. In the meantime, he had other people going to pick up the new one and get everything that needed to go with it. They came back at an appropriate time and were able to bring the new one in easily. They finished the job and everything went well. The water started getting warm as soon as it was hooked up and we tested all of the faucets to make sure they work. They took pictures for the warranty and said they are going to email me all of the information. Everything went smoothly and without a hitch. It was a little on the expensive side, but I wanted to make sure I got one with features that will make it last a long time so I don't have to have it replaced again soon.
