How Much Does A New Water Heater Cost?
As expected, the cost of a water tank will vary based on the type of tank and the size. At their most basic, a regular hot water heater will set you back $400, and that can rise to over $1,500. Tankless heaters can range from $250-$2,500, hybrid anywhere from $700-$3,000, and solar can be anything from $1,000 and up.
That is the standard costs for the water heater itself. With labor, you can expect to pay about a third of the cost of the heater.
We will always be upfront about the total cost.
Considering Other Plumbers? Think Again...
Frank was quick to respond , and had a very reasonable price offer for the project to replace three new toilets and some plumbing issues I had. He showed up even though it was the end of the day to help me out to finish up my 4 - 5 hour project and completed.
He was very professional, good and did not ask for anymore money as I had experienced in past with others. I have his number and will use him in case I need some plumbing project
Danny came to my house and gave me a very fair estimate. I hired him to do the job and I was not disappointed. Danny explained everything to me before, during and after doing the job.
Very professional, very fair pricing and excellent work. Any future plumbing needs - Danny will be the one I call.
I’ve only had to have plumbing services twice ! & let me tell you , I wish I had called Franklin the first time around. He definitely surpassed my my expectations. He was very professional and very respectful of our home.
So thankful that he responded to me quickly and was able to fix my problem efficiently & fast. Feels great to have my toilet, tub, and sink up and running again. Excellent work at a reasonable price! What more can you ask for? Thanks so much for your hard work & time!
Water Heater Repair
Water heaters do not last forever and there are many problems that you can run into with them. It does not matter if you have a gas heater, an electric, or a hybrid, there can be problems with pilot lights, power, worn elements, and leaks. And, if you get a leak, it can destroy part of your home and cost you even more money.
Keeping an eye on your water heater and having the small problems fixed before they become big problems will not only save you money but will also save you from having to replace the entire unit.
Repairs can keep your water heater running for longer, and we know how to repair every type of water heater. If you have any problems, give us a call.
Water Heater Installation
When a water heater cannot be fixed, you will need to have the entire unit replaced. This can often be money that you had not intended to spend, but there is usually a positive side effect and that comes with the efficiency of the newer models. Replacing an old water heater with a new one will save you money over time, and that will partly offset the cost of a new water heater.
When you need to have your water heater replaced, we will come in, remove the old one, and install the new one. We will take care of the disposal and make sure to have the place looking like new.
No one wants to have to pay for a new water heater but we will make it as painless as possible.

The Different Types Of Water Heaters
Electric Water Heaters
Electric water heaters are extremely common and among the easiest to use and maintain. As there are no pilot lights, you generally run into fewer problems, as long as there is power to the unit.
They take cold water into the tank and heated by an element, the hot water rising to the top of the tank where it is moved around the home as needed. They are generally reliable.
Gas Water Heaters
Gas water heaters work much in the same way as electric water heaters, except they use gas burners instead of elements to heat the water. Cold water enters, is heated by the burner, and rises to the top to be distributed as needed.
Gas heaters are also very reliable, as long as you have a gas supply to the appliance. The most common problem with these heaters is the pilot light going out, though you can often fix that yourself.
Tankless Hot Water Heaters
With a tankless water heater, the water is heated as it is needed instead of being stored in a large tank. This makes tankless heaters more compact and also more efficient than larger gas or eclectic heaters.
When you turn on the hot water, the heater heats the water on-demand, and it is delivered where needed. The only problem that can arise is when you need lots of hot water at multiple places in your home at the same time. It may not be able to deal with a lot of volume.
Most frequent questions and answers
If you have an old tank (~10 years), then that is likely the cause of the leak, and it is time to look into a new tank. This often happens through the burner tank and can mean replacing the burner as well as fixing the leak.
Leaks can also happen when the tank is cracked or pipes have a hole in them. The fix could be easy, but could also be a sign of something more serious.
Before calling someone out, check that you have power to the appliance. If you are sure that you have power, check the pilot light (for a gas heater). If you cannot find an obvious cause, then it could be the element or burner. It could also be a faulty thermostat or a tank that is too small.
When you can’t figure out the problem, we will be happy to help and have it up and running in no time.
If the area is far from the water tank, then it could mean that the hot water tank is not big or powerful enough. If the hot water is not reaching a specific part of your home, then it could be a blockage in the pipe.
It could also be a partially closed valve, so check any water valves before you call someone out.
The most obvious cause is a build-up of sediment and rust within the tank. If the tank is old, it is probably time to have it replaced rather than trying to clean it out. If it is a newer tank, there could be other problems.
Before calling someone out, you can refer to the manual to flush the water and the deposits from the tank.
