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.

The two young gentleman who did the installation were very professional and pleasant. Good job all around. Everything was explained clearly.

Anode rod needed replacing on my less than year old water heater, due to the builder buying a unit with the incorrect rod. Also the system flushed of the blueish green sediment that was now clogging my pipes and aerators.

also noticed that our builder had put a valve (can't remember the name of it) on incorrectly which was the reason the hot water was being pulled from the bottom of the tank where the sediment resides. He was not able to repair that since that's not what Design Temp does, but

was extremely informative and very patiently answered all of my questions. It had been a rough WEEK without having any water pressure.

in the office was also very patient in answering all of my questions and getting service out to my house as soon as he could. He made doubly sure that I knew the costs and also overestimated the time it would take, so it was a nice surprise when the bill came back for less than I had anticipated. Thank you!

The very courteous gentleman that came to my home used a camera to find the leak. It took him awhile to do so because there wasn't any direct signs of where the occasional leak was coming from. After finding two areas where it was coming from he had it fixed in no time. Everything was explained to me during the whole process in language I easily understood. My husband wasn't home at the time but I was able to relay all the information to him of what was happening. I will use this provider in the future.

Very professional.
Contacted me for an appointment immediately and provided an appointment within 24 hours of initial contact.
The owner came to my home with another technician and they both were extremely professional and knowledgable.
They explained everything they were doing and kept me well informed as the visit progressed....More /> I felt very confident with their diagnosis and recommendations.
I will definitely call them if I experience any issues with my air conditioner and/or heater.

The fix went exactly as expected except having to dig more than expected to find the leak because the leak location service (different company) was incorrect in pinpointing the location.
