Hot Water Heater Replacement Costs

Water Heater Styles

Tank-type water heaters have been the industry standard for over 100 years. They store hot water in tanks ranging from 30 to 80 gallons. This style represents more than 85% of all household water heaters in the United States.

Tankless water heaters have surged in popularity due to how efficient they are. Unlike storage tank water heaters, tankless ones don’t continuously burn energy to keep stored hot water at a set temperature. Instead, they heat the water as it flows through the pipes, providing an infinite supply of hot water on demand.

Tank Size or Tankless Water Heating Capacity

The cost of a water heater also largely depends on its size. Tank-style heaters can range from 20 to 80 gallons (or more) of storage. Tankless water heaters are determined by their flow rate, which is between two and six gallons per minute (GPM). Generally, a higher flow rate of four to six GPM is recommended for most homes. Homes with multiple levels may also have multiple water heaters for each floor’s water needs.

Gas vs. Electric

Gas and electric water heaters are the two main types of water heaters. The gas flame or an electric coil heats up the water. Electric models are less expensive than gas ones.

Although natural gas and propane are less expensive than electricity in most places, gas water heaters tend to be more costly over time. Electric water heaters are an excellent choice for small homes because they do not require venting.
