Service details

What's included in your water heater installation

  1. Assessment and upfront pricing

    Before suggesting a replacement water heater, we'll first come to your home to inspect your current water heater system. We’ll speak with you about options based on your hot water needs. This allows us to select the precise water heater that will perform best for you and your home.

    Plus, we always provide a firm upfront price estimate so that you know exactly how much you'll pay before any work begins.

  2. Installing your water heater

    During your water heater installation, a trained plumber will:

    1. Disconnect and dispose of your old water heater.
    2. Install your new water heater (whether it's gas, oil, tankless or indirect).
    3. Test your new unit to make sure everything's working properly.
    4. Clean up their work area before leaving your home.

Cost to install a water heater in Queens

The cost to replace a water heater in Queens or a surrounding area varies widely. In fact, you could expect a water heater installation to cost anywhere from $2,200 to $4,500+.

The cost you end up paying for your water heater installation all depends on multiple factors, including:

  • The type of water heater (tank vs tankless). Tankless water heaters typically cost more to install. However, they can provide considerable energy savings throughout their lifetime and they have a longer lifespan. Keep in mind, though, that tankless models won't work for every home and family. Our plumbers can help walk you through the pros and cons of tank and tankless water heaters to help you make the right decision.
  • The capacity of the water heater. The higher the water heater's capacity, the more it typically costs. Tank water heater capacity is measured by how many gallons of hot water it can hold in the tank. Tankless water heater capacity, however, is measured by how many gallons of hot water it can provide in a minute. Our plumbers will inspect your current setup and ask about your hot water usage in order to ensure your new water heater is sized perfectly for your needs.
  • The contractor you hire. Higher-quality contractors may charge more for their water heater installation work but they'll likely save you money in the long run. That's because higher-quality contractors will get the job done correctly the first time around, saving you time and money on repeat work.
  • The type of warranty you purchase. Most manufacturers offer extended warranties that cover the cost to replace your water heater due to material or workmanship defects. The type of warranty you choose will impact the overall cost of your water heater installation.
