Water Heater Cost

The cost of a water heater replacement can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of water heater, the size of the unit, and the cost of labor. On average, the cost of a water heater replacement can range from $1,100 to $2,000 or more.

Some of the factors that can impact the cost of a water heater replacement include:

Type of water heater: The cost of a water heater can vary depending on the type of unit you choose. Conventional tank water heaters are generally less expensive than tankless water heaters, but tankless units are more energy-efficient and can save you money on your energy bills in the long run.


* Pro Tip! Check with your local electric company or propane provider to find rebates you may be elligible for.

Size of the unit: The size of the water heater will also impact the cost of the replacement. A larger unit will cost more than a smaller one.


Installation costs: The cost of labor can vary depending on condition of existing plumbing connections and the complexity of the installation. Complexity is increased when the new unit is a different energy source than original unit or if there is a change in tank size or capacity.

*Pro Tip! Give us a call to discuss your installation and we'll provide you with an upfront cost. No surprises later on!

Warranty: Units provided and installed by Vinson and Sill, Inc are warrantied through our professional supply house and the manufacturer. We take care of registering your unit for you at the time of installation for peace of mind. 


Additional features: Some water heaters come with additional features such as a built-in recirculation pump or a digital thermostat, which can add to the overall cost of the unit.


Removal and disposal: Vinson and Sill, Inc. includes removal and disposal cost in water heater installation estimates.

It's worth noting that water heaters have a lifespan of around 8-12 years with proper maintenance, and when they get older they tend to be less energy efficient and may require more frequent repairs. Oftentimes, it's more cost-effective in the long run to replace an older unit rather than continually repairing it.
