Do I need a new water heater?

If your family is constantly struggling with consistently hot water then it's likely that you need a new water heater. Your current heater may be too small (not enough storage) or it doesn't heat up fast enough (recovery time) for your needs. If your family has trouble living with the existing issues then it may be worth it to invest in a new water heater. Not to worry, this installation only takes about a day to complete!

The technician will likely shut off your plumbing during the installation process in order to hook up the new unit. They will also need access to a gas or electrical line depending on the type of water heater that you purchased.

How much does a water heater cost?

A hot water heater installation price may not include the price of the unit. However, the installation price depends on the type of unit. Gas installations tend to cost less than electric installations, and tankless water heater installations can cost more to install (especially for a retrofitting project). Expect to pay anywhere from $500 - $1,500 for a water heater installation. Tankless water heater retrofitting projects could cost around to $10,000.

Can I DIY a water heater installation?

No! TrustedPros strongly advises against DIYing this project. We urge you to invest in a highly trained, licensed plumber to help you install your water heater. A water heater uses carbon monoxide, natural gas, and a pressure-controlled holding tank. Any one of these components could cause catastrophic damage and/or injury if the unit is not installed properly.

Always hire a licensed and experienced plumber to install a water heater!

Additional tips

A gas powered hot water heater recovers at twice as fast as an electric water heater. This is great for those with small homes. Nevertheless, choose your water heater based on electricity and gas prices in your city.
