There are a lot of determining factors that can change the price of a water heater install but a “ballpark price” you can range anywhere from $1,800 $2,400 for a natural draft (chimney) water heater and $2,200-$2,600 for a power vented (fan assisted) water heater. If you are looking for a tankless water heater these can range from $4,000+. These are great starting numbers but you have to remember every install is different and depending of code upgrades, electrical and added accessories these number can fluctuate lower or higher. That’s why it is always best to call in and ask for a free in house estimate so we can measure everything on site and give you an honest quote in the comfort of your own home. All of our comfort advisors have journeyperson status with years of install experience. We aren’t sales people…. We are a company with your best interests in mind.
Aside from saving space a tankless water heater will also save you in utilities. The tankless water heater is only going to heat the amount of water that is needed vs your standard water heater will be constantly heating up 40-50 gallons of water. Best part, when you do want hot water you will have unlimited hot water without having to worry about running out.
All companies have different costs of over head. At J&A we have a 6,000 sq/ft building we call home… (not our actual home like working out of our garage). We pride ourselves proper training for our employees, company vehicles and a career at J&A not just a job. Our installers take pride in their work. I guarantee there are companies out there that will be able to give you a “cheaper quote” but guess what… we aren’t a cheap company, and we don’t take short cuts. We have been around since 1978 and have employee that have been working here longer than most of those “cheaper quote” companies can keep there doors open for. We don’t believe in taillight warranty. So if you are looking for a company that can provide you with 12 years parts and 12 years labour then look no further.
After we have set up a time that works best for you we will call you the day prior to confirm the appointment (that’s if we aren’t already doing a same day install)
The morning of we will have one of our technicians give you a call with his/her estimated time of arrival (usually between 8-9am).
They will go over the details of the install with you and the Comfort Advisor you had discussed the project with.
After a confirmed game plan has been discussed our installer with put down drop sheets throughout the home to best project your home from any unforeseen mess in the process of the install.
The install can range anywhere from 3-6 hours depending on the difficulty. (Remember this is the advantage of having us come in prior to take measurements, discuss the install, location of venting, etc)
Once the installed is completed we ask the homeowner to be present at home in order to go over and explain the new system and its sequence of operation.
