"We hired them to repair a leak in our current solar pool heating system. They were great! Couldn't find a company open on January 1st and they were the only" ones that picked up! We were out of the country and my neighbor said that we had leak, so we were able to hire them and they told our neighbor how to temporarily stop the leak until they arrived next day. Great customer service and perfect value for the job performed, very satisfied with this contractor.

"An A+ experience from top to bottom. My water heater failed on the weekend and I came out to a swimming pool type garage. I purchased a water heater from Home Depot" and they wanted over $600 to install it. To top that off, the company they contract through has terrible reviews everywhere. I called Lowes and it was the same story. I went onto Angie's List to being my for a viable option for the installation. I emailed and called several companies and was the only one that returned my call on a Sunday. was a friendly, professional fellow with a great personality. He knows what he is talking about and only employs the best. The tech showed up within 2 hours of the phone call and had the water heater up and running within less than 60 minutes. He didn't even mind that I hung over his shoulder the entire time. To top it all off, the service on a weekend only cost me $375. It would have been $250 in the week. I now have hot water in my house and is to thank for that. Do yourself a favor. End your right now and just hire . You won't regret it.

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.

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.

Depends a lot on your configuration - he may have been including direct outside venting because your existing heater/furnace duct was not large enough to handle the added load, and may have figured running larger piping to the jetted tub and maybe upsizing the valve and flex tubing at the gas line. This all assumes you have adequate access and installation space for the larger tank - they tend to be fatter rather than much taller.

I would talk to several plumbers - if you get quotes from 3 or more, it should become obvious right off if one is high-balling you. Of course, do not tell the others what the other's bids were.

The water heater itself will cost about $1000-2000 for that size - about double a 50 gallon, which usually costs about $800-1500 installed (replacing an existing plumbed-in one). The larger heater may take a bit of beefing up of the support platform for the added weight, but assuming you have adequate headroom, installation cost using existing ductwork and piping would not be any more than for a 50 gallon, so say $2000-3500 range installed. The $4500-6000 definitely sounds high if it assumed using existing hookups.

?
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.

I was planning to buy a water heater and just do the installation. But I was not able to find the water heater in the store, so they were able to find one for me the same morning of my appointment. showed up on time, and was very helpful and nice to talk to. It took him short time to install the new water ...More heater, and he even replaced all the plumbing around it. It was a great experience in overall. I would recommend them to a friend.

Met with of and we discussed installing a hot water heating system. I was to receive a $550 Progress Energy rebate, another $500 rebate for advertising, and $1500 Federal tax credit. The adverting rebate company stopped offering the rebate and agreed to discount the $500 anyway ...More so this says a lot for the company standing behind their word. further answered my questions on Solar PV panels and what to expect with them.
When the installer arrived we further analyzed where on the roof the panel would go and I decided to change the location due to possible interference by an oak tree. The installer agreed the new location was better and had no problem with the change . I 've had solar hot water heating on a previous house I owned and knew what to expect and how the system functions. The installer obviously knew what he was doing and installed the whole system in 1 day! He was very professional with the installation. The controller is digital and displays when it is operating the pump and displays the temperatures at the tank and the solar panel. The tank temperature has been as high as 165 degrees F. The solar panel gets up to 185 degrees +.
The installation has now been running for 7 months with no issues. I'm expecting the ROI to take about 5 years. My estimated savings is around $500/year. This is a very good ROI and I recommend it to other people considering Solar Hot water. In my case I turned off the breaker on the hot water heater and run 100% solar. There will be times on cloudy days I will have to run electric hot water but this is very rare.
The solar hot water panel, tank, pump, and controller are high quality components. did a great job using quality components and superb installation and follow up. I highly recommend for your solar needs!

I called in the morning about my 13 year old water heater being broke and possibly needing to be replaced. said they would be there in the afternoon to take a look. They called shortly before arriving and got to work immediately. The water heater was replaced. They cleaned up after themselves and hauled the old water heater away. ...More During the install they gave us a lot of info about water heaters in general and before leaving, they showed us how to operate it and told us about a few small details that were not covered so well in the instruction manual. I would recommend these guys to anyone with plumbing needs.

I purchased a Angie's List deal for a whole house plumbing inspection and water heater tune-up. I feel like a sucker for paying $50 to have a guy turn my faucets on and tell me if the drains are backing up. Total waste of money!
