Cost to replace a Water Heater

*The following price is to install a new 50 gallon 40,000 BTU water heater for homes built after 1970

This older homes will have atmospheric water heaters venting into a Masonry Chimney which can change the type of water heater we would install. In most cases a Flue Liner must be installed prior to installing a new water heater. Homes built prior to 1970 may not be good candidates for an atmospheric tank, other options could be electric tank or gas tankless systems. In either case there are additional costs to be considered when working in older homes.
