Water heater installation cost
Your water heater replacement cost will depend on the size and type of system you require. Here is a quick breakdown of some of the key decisions and how they will affect the cost of your project.
Tank water heater cost
This is the most traditional type of water heater, and is available in sizes such as 50, 60 or 80 gallons depending on the size of your household. The average cost to install this type of system is $400-$900*.
Tankless water heater cost
Cheaper to operate but more expensive to install, a tankless water heater provides unlimited hot water for your home. The cost to install one is $1,470-$2510*.
Gas vs electric
Most water heaters are powered by gas or electric, and the cost for each is broadly similar at $300-$2,880* for electric and $250-$1,500* for gas. If you are installing a tankless unit, an electric-fired model may not be sufficient to supply hot water to your whole house so gas water heater installation may be a better option. Speak to a professional and they will be able to recommend the best option for your home.
