Water Heater Change Out Pricing
*These prices are removing the unit and installing the same type of water heater
**If additional adjustments are needed to fit new unit, price will adjust accordingly
***If going from tank to tankless, price will adjust accordingly
A tankless water heater is more expensive, but it lasts longer (10-15 years) and saves up to 50% of the energy cost that a tanked water heater consumes. A tankless water heater gives you efficiency over the long term.

"Doug’s repair was incredible!! We had a problem with our septic tank the day before thanksgiving and had called over 13 other companies. Doug’s repair was super helpful and immediately offered to come help us even though we were an hour away. Ron and Riven diagnosed both problems and fixed it that day! We are so grateful for their hard work and due diligence, and would highly recommend them!"
