Installing a new water heater can cost $806-$1,558. On average a typical unit plus labor costs $1,173.
A water heater unit costs about $300-$2,000. Tankless water heaters can provide more energy efficiency and cost about $1,000- $3,000.
The cost of labor can run $45 -$150 an hour, with it taking about 2 to 3 hours to install the new unit.
Deciding whether to repair or replace your water heater should be based on the age of your current water heater and the cost of a repair. Your water heater unit can live more than a decade, so if your heater is near the end of its lifespan and there’s a costly repair, replacing the water heater altogether could be your best option.
Your residential water heater can live between 8-10 years. A commercial water heater can last up to 20 years if it’s tankless, and about 10 years if it’s a tank water heater. If you see signs of rusty water, water leakage, lack of hot water, or you hear loud banging noises, these could all be signs your commercial water heater needs to be replaced.
