Cost to Install a Water Heater

Water Heater replacement electric

Submitted by: stvrnhn – Budget: $900.00 Baltimore, MD USA (Wednesday, April 11, 2012)

How much should I charge to replace a 50-gallon electric water heater for a customer? This would include purchase and delivery of the new one and haul-away and disposal of the old one.

If you are a contractor or a handyman, how much would this job cost in your area?

Low Price: $2000

Consensus Price: $1500

High Price: $1500

  1. I just installed a 40 gallon water gas heater with two new braided water lines. Removed and disposed of the old heater. Re=routed the overflow line and reconnected the earthquake straps. The entire job of buying the heater, installing ect… took 6 hours. Total parts were $445 and the labor was $350. The permit was $120.00. The work was done in California. Hope this helps.

What would a fair price be?
