"I'm very happy and relieved with how smoothly the water heater installation went. Our very old water heater sprung a leak through its rusted out bottom at about 11:30pm on a Monday" night. First thing Tuesday morning I called another plumber I've used before with good results and he was booked all week and couldn't come to install a new water heater until next week. On top of that, he doesn't stock water heaters--so I would have to deal with purchasing a replacement water heater. We have a 6-week old infant and are doing cloth diapers, so going a week without hot water wasn't an option. (I'm not slamming this other plumber because he's a small family business operation. I don't blame him for being booked for the week.) Soooooo I went to Angie's list, found that Jiffy has great reviews and gave them a call. They were able to send a plumber to our home within 2 hours or so to assess the situation. The Jiffy plumber arrived at our home early Tuesday afternoon, gave my wife a quote of $2,000 to upgrade our now out-of-code gas water heater vent system and install a new 40
heater. He told her he thought that Jiffy might have a heater in stock in their shop and, if so, that he'd be able to install it that day. The plumber went back to the Jiffy shop, found that they had a heater in stock and was back at our home by 4pm to begin the install. He finished the install by about 8pm and we had hot water again less than 24 hours after our old water heater had died. He applied our Angies List member 10% discount and the total bill was a little under $1750--not cheap . . . but I am fine with the price given the very, very prompt service on a pretty major plumbing job. I'm not familiar with the brand of the water heater that was installed--
--so I'm going to hold off on giving a rating for "quality." But all in all I couldn't be happier with my experience hiring Jiffy for this job.

"Our old hot water heater -- and I mean old -- died while we were on vacation. I contacted
after finding them on AngiesList. Nick got right back in touch and" said they could do the work the next day. A potential snag I was worried about: I had already purchased a tankless heater, two years ago, expecting ours to die. Nick said no problem, the model had been updated but most of the internals and all the connectors were the same. No b.s. about an extra adapter or any other nonsense. Nick and the other guys were friendly and informative. Their work is clean and tight. They did a neat job with the installation, which I had been worried about because it meant drilling through my 100-year-old wall. A neighbor who also went tankless recently told me my vent looks a lot better than his. I had to agree. The water heater has been great, and it was a real relief to get this done quickly and well. The price was a little painful, but it seemed in line with the industry, and the work is top-notch. We'll use them again.

"Scheduling went very well -- they were able to get me an appointment quickly. Service person showed up on time and was friendly. From there it went downhill -- he informed me that" a valve needed to be replaced but that I should consider replacing the entire system. I asked him for an estimate to do the repair. To his credit, he tried on the spot to call the water heater manufacturer to track down a part but was not able to get through. This was on 11/21/2013. Service person took my credit card info and billed me $105 with a promise to call back with the part cost/ repair cost, but never did. I followed up on 12/3, trying to be patient given the Thanksgiving Holiday. I was told I'd get another call back. It's now 12/5 -- two weeks after the visit! -- and no respons whatsoever (though the charge went through ont he credit card). Big waste of time and frankly no way to do business. Very disappointed.

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.)

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 Washington

I contacted the company on Monday evening, after my water heater leaked on Sunday night. I had already stopped the leaking so there was no immediate need for plumbing work, but I wanted hot water back.
Washington Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
responded to the call though it was already after 5 pm. I sent him a picture of part of the water heater with my contact information. The next morning, I sent him a picture of the entire unit, and was told he would try to get someone out to my house that afternoon. Unfortunately, his other jobs prevented him from getting to my house by the end of the day. He did call me back after I had called him to find out whether a crew would come out that Tuesday. We arranged for him to come out on Wednesday afternoon in a 2 hour time window. He and a co-worker came out in the allotted time and quickly got to work. They were able to replace the unit and haul away the old one, they cleaned up the water on the floor that spilled from the old unit. The job was completed fairly quickly, and they let me know how long it would take to have hot water again.
They gave me the price quoted on the website for their existing deal for replacement of an electric water heater.

I was very happy that the repairman was able to come out the same day I called, as my tenant had no hot water. He solved the problem, His price was reasonable. He mentioned that the hot water heater had not been serviced since it was installed. I did not know this was necessary. He suggested I have this done once a year. He was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this company and would use them again.

is a great plumber , and has always taken the time to explain what is wrong in the house and how he proposes to fix it. He has never, not even once, had to come back to fix something a second time. I've never been anything but thrilled with his work. He is punctual and conscientious, and I wholeheartedly recommend him.

I discovered water on the floor under my water heater on a sunday and could see corrosion at the base. I called immediately, and FastPlumber took my call and scheduled a replacement for the following day. He arrived right on time, took care of the job quickly and was very pleasant to deal with. I could not have been more pleased.

The job site conditions were quite different from what they were accustomed to, and normally would charge extra for, but they honored the coupon on Angie's list without hassle.

Very satisfied. They showed up, were professional and friendly, completed their work, and clearly explained the work they had done and any problems that they saw. I will contact them again in a year for the same service. Highly recommended.

I was very impressed with the owner. We played phone tag for a day, but he was willing to talk to me, and was very knowledgeable. I had actually used another company to try to fix the issue, who ended up being incompetent. It seems a lot of companies don't really know what the heck they are doing, and they know they don't, but they are very willing to charge you a ton of money for work they know they can't really do. Yeah I'm sure that this is probably common knowledge to everyone - but as a young single woman in my 20s on my own, I had to figure out stuff by myself.

Silk didn't even want to send anyone over and have a look without talking to me first over the phone. Actually, the receptionist/scheduler immediate put me in touch directly with

Silk before she would schedule anything once I told her I was having issues with my tankless heater.

immediately zeroed in on my issue. Before I could even tell him what problems I had experienced, he asked me whether I had experienced certain issues: 'is the issue intermittent.' 'what kind of heater?' 'is it especially unrealiable in the winter?' etc.
We then determined a tankless wasn't a good idea, and he suggested going with an electric but that he needed a 240 Vac line. He told me to get back at him once I had that installed, and he can come and give me an estimate.
