Water Heaters Only, Inc, knows that replacing a water heater is not a cheap proposition for alot of California homeowners. While the cost will depend on varying factors such as the type of water heater, its size, and installation costs, homeowners should be aware of several factors associated with the replacement process.
So, how much does it cost to replace a water heater in Los Angeles, CA?
The first expense to consider is the actual cost of the water heater. The State of California necessitates that all new water heaters meet certain energy efficiency standards, which may entail the purchase of a more energy efficient water heater. These more energy efficient water heaters do tend to be a little bit more expensive upfront, however they can save you money on utilities in the long run, plus your new water heater may be eligible for an energy star rebate. We will talk more about this later.
In addition to the expense of the water heater, homeowners will also need to pay for the installation of the new unit. This cost will be determined by factors such as the location of the water heater, the type of unit installed, and any necessary electrical or gas line upgrades. Installation costs in California can have a vast range, depending on the complexity of the installation as well as anything that needs to be brought up to code.
Finally, if homeowners need to make any changes to the home’s existing plumbing or electrical systems to take on the new water heater, they will incur additional costs. If the new water heater requires a larger gas line or a new electrical circuit, homeowners must pay for these upgrades separately but not always. It depends on whether or not the company is licensed and insured to take on that kind of work.
Aside from these upfront costs, homeowners in the Los Angeles area should consider the long-term savings of installing an energy-efficient water heater. While the initial costs of buying and installing a new energy efficient water heater may be more costly upfront than in the past. However, the amount of energy the water heater saves can help in reducing monthly utility bills saving homeowners money. Your new water heater could be eligible for an energy savings rebate that will further lower your costs. Want to know if you are eligible for a rebate? Click here to find out.
