was very professional. He explained what he was going to do before starting and was quite clear that if we had any questions about what" he was doing, he would stop and explain, that he did not mind interruptions to make sure we were satisfied. Job was completed quickly, work area was kept neat and cleaned up nicely at end. Once complete,
provided recommended operating and maintenance guidance. He also made sure our existing hot water recirculating pump was re installed and functioning. Overall, I am very pleased and would recommend this company for future work.

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.

Water Heater Installation And Repair reviews in Orem

I live in a unique condominium that has the Water heater on the 3rd floor. I was given an assessment of what could be the problem. I was provided the same information on the internet that I found via my own investigation though he did provide a printed version which was greatly appreciated. I was given quotes to replace every component that could be the cause of the problem (approached it with a shotgun fix) as well the labor. The engineer/technician was very punctual and professional. I asked for several quotes on all the parts and labor as well quotes for a new Water heater before the technician left and he noted it. I waited from Wednesday until Monday before e-mailing them as I had not received any response to my quotes. Monday (after sending a reminder) I got a response from
Orem Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. He gave me a quote for all the parts and labor. I then asked for a quote on a replacement Water heater with all new components. He responded by telling me the following, "Our business expertise for 33 years has been water treatment and our licensed plumbers have much experience in plumbing, products and applications for water treatment. Your current water heater setup is something we are not familiar with. After talking with our licensed plumbers and our president, we recommend you contact a company with more experience in heater products and applications."
Now I have to start all over. Moreover, My water heater was working 95% of the time and I wanted to get it fixed before it stopped working entirely. After the technician left on Wednesday, it has not worked, at all, since.
I did ask if they specialized in Water heaters prior to requesting a specialist and they confirmed. Back to the drawing board for me.
I cannot say I would or would not recommend their services, but I can say that they were only willing to perform work under their conditions without offering any other professional and/or friendly advice.
Thank you,
Dissatisfied customer w/o any hot water

They had pretty good follow up. They called ahead of time to let me know when they were coming out and they arrived on time. They did have to come back a couple of times to make some adjustments.

The communication was good. He brought the new water heater with him, replaced it, and took the old water heater away. He cleaned up all the trash and left everything tidy and clean.

Pulled 2nd floor toilet, used camera but unable to clear it or see anything. Used shop vac to suck out as much water as possible from sewer stack. Poured 2 bottles of antifreeze down drain to aid ice break. Used heater/hair dryer to heat up pipe. Used camera to keep knocking at clog until it broke up and cleared. Reset toilet, tested, and charged $625 when they said $225 per hour and it took about 2 hours.

Within 2 hours, they took out the old one, installed a new one, and vacuumed out all of the residual water that was flooding my home. Their service was excellent and they were very punctual. I mentioned I was a member of Angie's List and he even knocked off $45 of the total quote.

They came by, assessed our needs, installed the new water heater, took away the old one, and cleaned up after themselves. They were very timely. They didn't drag out the work. They did a great job.
