"I called on a Thursday and was able to have the water heater replaced the following Monday. They arrived when they were suppose to and when I said I was an Angie's" list patron suggested I go on line to get the coupon, which I did. This company was $1000 less than the company that suggested the hot water heater be replaced. i also price checked at another store, which had the same hot water heater for the same price and actually used this provider as the installer. The workman explained what had to be done and finish the project in just a few hours. It was inspected by the city of Bellevue with no issues. I would definitely use them again.

-Susan T.

"Great, they showed up the same day on time. We couldnt be happier with the way the job went, everything was explained to us beforehand and all the work looked" nice and tidy. We have already recommended them to our neighbors.

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.

Is your water heater failing or leaking? There's more to consider beyond water heater prices. Installing a new water heater can be dangerous, so it's best to hire a licensed plumber.

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.

Angie's Answers


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.

Water Heater Repair And Installation reviews in Troy


The owner of Mtn. Heating & Cooling came out to check our heating system and to provide a 2nd opinion concerning some repair work recommended by another heating/AC company. The first company told us that there were a couple of issues in need of immediate attention (cost $300), and that due to the age of the system (15 years), we may want to consider replacing it. Suspecting that the technician was trying to "up-sell" me on a repair/replacement, I called Mtn. Heating for another check of the system. The owner,
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
, checked our system and did find some of the issues that the first technician had discovered; He also found that some of the problems identified earlier were either non-existent or not as serious as we were originally told.
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
showed us pictures that he had taken with his phone, and went over what he saw and answered all our questions. My only complaint is that
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
was running late due to issues with an earlier service call, and I would have appreciated a phone call at some point to update us as to what time he would eventually arrive.
- William M.

The plumber did the job quickly and professionally. I had a lot of questions and he answered them all. It was the best experience with a plumbing service I've had so far.
- Jeremy R.

He showed up on time, he and his assistant were cleaning dressed, covered their shoes, and did a prompt job. The job was done in less than 4 hours.
- Bill B.

This plumber originally responded to call placed to them by our building management because we had a leak from either the shower body or the standing floor drain. In the course of conversation during these repairs, it was decided that we may as well renovate the bathroom at this time.
They said they could install a new tub for $1,000.00. They were not specific about what type of tub they would install, but
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
stated that cast iron was really hard. We did not want a fiberglass tub, so we purchased a
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
acrylic tub.
The demolition was done on 9/28 and the old tub was removed. On 9/29,
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. showed up to install the new tub. During the installation we were out at work but came home to find the tub installed.
There was a chip in the tub's finish, and there was a very dull area on the ledge and outer apron that looked like the tub had been cleaned with an abrasive substance. (We found out later they had used hand soap they took from the kitchen and a scouring sponge to clean the tub after testing the drain for leaks.)
The bigger problem was that they used PVC pipe for the tub drain which is ILLEGAL in our building.
When I arrived home and saw this, I immediately called
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
. First, he swore to me that PVC is now legal, which is incorrect. He also said the chipped section I saw was not an issue because it would be behind the wall. OK, fine. He then said to me that the dull area I saw was the way the tub came out of the box.
What he said next was even more telling. He said, "We did the best we could do." He also said the bill was $1625.00.
The next day the contractor was back on site. He stated that he couldn't work with the installation the way it had been done, and the tub would have to be removed. This would also have to be done to reinstall the drain with the correct material anyway.
They removed the tub, and still demanded payment for the installation, as well as additional work they had done. We paid them - less the damaged tub, which had to be replaced.
Unfortunately, you can't
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
a contractor - and
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
, unless you give them a
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
to correct the issue, and we do not want them working in our place again - EVER. That is the only reason we paid.
- Allan F.

I was able to make an appointment for the next day to have the heater replaced. On that call I was informed that the price did not include the cost of the permit required by the city of SF, and that this would cost me an additional approx. $188, but that they would secure the permit for me. That seemed reasonable, and I said okay. Then the contractor arrived at the very end of the five hour window of time they provided, and presented me with a form to sign before they would do the pre-paid work, stating that (1) they would NOT be getting a permit, and that the work would be performed by an UNLICENSED contractor. I come to Angie's List to find high quality providers, and because I needed to restore hot water to a tenant quickly I was over a barrel. I had pre-paid for an Angie's List deal, from a supposedly high quality provider, but had no choice but accept an unlicensed worker and non-compliance with city codes. In fact, the installer told me that when they make calls in response to Angie's List deals, the installer is told to just "quickly slam it in, and leave." I had to persuade the installer to strap the heater in the same manner as the adjacent heater, installed last year by Home Depot, with a permit. (albeit at greater expense.) Next time I will ignore Angie's List, go to Home Depot, and have the job done by someone I know I can trust. That said, in the end the work seems (to my untrained eyes anyway) to be of adequate quality.

installed a water heater 14 years ago at our residence. It finally bit the dust on the weekend (naturally). I called
Troy Water Heater Installers Provider Name Locked
up on Sunday. He gave me the installed price, said that he could get one ordered on Monday for installation on Tuesday. He called on Monday to confirm the installation time on Tuesday. He showed up as promised and we had hot water before noon.
He found during final testing that the draft from the water heater was quite slow. He went outside and proposed a possible solution. I followed up with a chimney sweep company that fixed the problem.
