"Water heater replacement went fine. The installer charged me $45 to add a
. I would discuss
option ahead next time." There was some confusion about whether or not we needed a city inspection. The agent on the phone said that it is required. However, the installer said that it is optional, he didn't insist. The installer said city inspection would add two additional charges: additional work around the heater to make the installation pass the inspection PLUS city inspection fees. I don't remember how much he quoted.

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 Battle Ground

My water heater sprung a leak overnight. I didn't realize it until I noticed water coming from the garage. It was 7:00 AM and I was headed to work. I contacted
Battle Ground Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
Plumbing not expecting to get an answer this early in the morning but hoping someone would call me back as soon as they opened. To my surprise I spoke to a woman who not only provided me with the service I needed to repair the water heater but also provided assurance that everything would be fine. A service technician was at my home within 2 hours and provided me with an estimate. When I decided to replace the water heater, another technician brought the heater and it was installed. The entire process from the time I found the leak until I had running water was under 5 hours. The job was neatly done and stress free. I have used
Battle Ground Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
Plumbing on several occasions. While the cost is a bit higher than others, the job is always done in a professional manner and as promised. I will call

Battle Ground Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
, is a Godsend!
We had a gas leak on our brand new natural gas water heater thru the gas valve located on the thermostat. After calling NW Natural they came out and shut off the gas but couldn't fix the issue. They gave me a list of their "preferred" providers. As it was after 4pm the the "preferred" service provider charged me an after hours emergency fee of $139 + tax! Then told me he couldn't fix it without the part. I asked several times what they charged to fix this issue and each time received a different vague answer as to why they (I will not share the name of this dishonest company) couldn't provide me with an estimate of cost. He left and said he would call in the morning. That leaves my family of 5 without any hot water! I decided that the company was not worth dealing with if they couldn't/wouldn't state the cost up front.
I found

and gave

a call. He fit me in his busy schedule! Did NOT charge me an emergency fee! And fixed the issue right away. He was professional, showed up when he said he would be there. Even called 20 minutes before he arrived. Great customer service.He also told me exactly what the price would be! I will call him again if our water heater needs further repair. Highly recommended.

We had an appointment scheduled to have our new water heater installed and the old one removed and disposed of. When they did not show at the scheduled time I called and talked to
Battle Ground Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. She said they arrived but nobody answered.. I was there all day and my dog goes crazy if anyone even drives in the driveway. (Normally I wouldn't say this, but I just knew she was lying to me. Against my better judgement I told myself I was being silly and it was a
Battle Ground Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
mistake. Frankly, I'm desperate for hot water!)
I explained to her that I had been there all day. She cut me off saying things like this happen and they would come right over after they were finished on the job they were at. She also said she would call when they were on their way. Never came or called. My husband called them AGAIN and they rescheduled for the following morning (today) at 8am. Well, today at 8am nobody showed or called. We called and the plumber said he had to swap out his truck for another because it wasn't running well. He said he was in Tumwater but was on his way to Puyallup and would be there in about 20 minutes. Oh, he also said that traffic was really bad. Hmmm, that's really weird because all of the DOT webcams showed things were wide open when I checked right after the call. It is now 4pm and no call. Out of sheer frustration my husband has tried calling but nobody will pick up. How these low-lifes stay in business is beyond me. If they didn't want to do the job they simply could have refused it and not wasted our time. T

answered my call promptly, gave me a quote and scheduled my service (for the next day) in one phone call. The service technicians arrived when expected, removed the old hot water heater and installed the new hot water heater without incident. They performed the removal and installation with care and cleaned up. Everything went extremely smoothly and I was back to washing dishes in a couple of hours. I have already recommended this company to two of my friends.

What bothers me about this vendor is that I had no line item detial about hte costs, I told them about the angie's list coupon but don't think it was taken out of the cost. And then I got wild stories about how much other services would cost in order to make the $285 charge seem fair. As most people on here do their research, i knew the part was $20 and the service should have been about $100. But as always with work being busy and my 2nd baby just born, I had no time to deal with this repair.
Scheduling was straightforward and she took my coupon info. Person was on time, but worked with my wife. I always get scared when that happens as I fear they will

her. Which I think they did as there was no justification for the cost other than the repair person coming up with 3 digits magically in his head.
Long and short of this review, would I tell my wife or mom or any of my friends to use them? No.

Installation went smoothly and the owner of the company was the individual performing the install.

(the owner) took extra time to double check everything on the water heater at my request and made no fuss about this. He also educated me on proper water heater maintenance that I could perform myself to extend the life of the water heater. All debris and waste materials were removed from my property including the old water heater and since the install date, the water heater has been work very well.
