Cost to replace a Water Heater

*The following pricing only applies to houses built after the 1970’s. Many older homes will have atmospheric water heaters venting into a Masonry Chimney. In most cases a Flue Liner must be installed prior to installing a new water heater. (We recommend KC Chimney Service)

Venting is often replaced for both the water heater and furnace using a thicker 26ga metal, running 4" to the water heater, and adding a double wall wye to the flue. The additional venting work usually adds anywhere from $45-$125. For specific pricing on this portion you may email a picture of the venting to Please include the entire vent connector for the water heater. If the vent combines with the furnace, please include the wye. 

If you would like to schedule an install we can usually get you scheduled within a few days. Install times are 9:00am or in the afternoon around 1:00pm. Installations usually take around 3 hours.

You may book an appointment through email at or you can call the answering service at (913) 962-7000 and provide your address and request to get on the schedule for a call back.

*6yr full labor warranty does not apply when a water softener has been installed as they significantly reduce water heater lifespan.
