What does a water heater cost?

For a water heater installation you’re looking at:

  • $1275 for ground level new 50-gallon water heater, all parts, and installation.
  • $1500 – $1,625 for a new 50-gallon water heater, all parts, and installation. Sometimes they’re behind the air handler, behind ductwork. They’re really difficult to install even for professionals, so the price can go up from $1,625 if your attic is more challenging.

Of course, always, hauling off the old one, it’s a two-man job, so the labor increase, the cost increase, the more difficult the access of the job, does increase the price.

There’s a lot more than meets the eye. We’re going to explain what to look for so that it’s done correctly and properly, especially if it’s natural gas.

Natural gas, of course, once burned, it releases carbon monoxide, which in turn is poison and kills animals, humans, children, young, old people. That’s one of the main basic selling points. No matter where it’s at — if it’s in the attic, in the garage, in the laundry room, or a little shed attached to the house — you want to make sure that this thing is properly vented.
