The average lifespan of most tank-style natural gas hot water heaters or even electric water heaters is only eight to 12 years, making hot water heater replacement probably the most common home improvement.
So how much should a new unit cost? According to most pros, the actual cost to install a new system depends on whether it’s the standard unit or a more energy-efficient tankless hot water heater.
Every installation differs
It can cost from $700 to $2,000 to set up a water heater depending if you go with tankless or not,” says Ryan Ruch, CEO of R&R Murrieta Plumbing. Most clients are on the lower side of that number. We are the most experienced hot water heater installation company with headquarters in Murrieta CA. Ryan explains that it was difficult to provide an accurate estimate without seeing the water heater installation site first. “The cost depends on the type of installation and that is unique to every individual project,” he says. “It depends on what kind of unit the customers currently has and what has to be upgraded to bring the installation up to current code.”
It pays to employ a professional
“When you get a licensed, qualified plumber who has install water heaters correctly, they will make sure that all of the safety features are in place and that it’s installed to the current local plumbing codes,” says Ryan Ruch, a master plumber and supervisor at the highly regarded R&R Plumbing. “Installing a hot water heater will be dangerous and fixes improperly installed water heaters every day. “For electric water heater installations, you are coping with 240 volts of electricity,” Ryan mentioned. “On a gas water heater, leaks takes place and if it’s not corrected, could cause catastrophic damage to your home or its occupants.”
Some of the other considerations when installing a hot water heater includes making sure the system is properly plumbed. They must be installed with adequate clearance and verifying that drip pans are installed. Ryan says that probably an essential component for gas-fired tanks or even tankless heaters is to ensuring the systems are correctly vented to ensure that the residents avoid contact with carbon monoxide gasses produced by combusted fuel. Based on the Centers for Disease Control, unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning leads to 400 deaths every year. When you hire a plumber for this install, make sure they have experience in how to correctly vent exhaust gasses and ensure they pull permits, if required. Due to the carbon monoxide concern, people should always question anyone who does not pull a permit.
