Good product and install but poor warranty guidance by HD

HD store told me that only a 2 yr was available on the heater covering years 2 and 3. Water Heaters Plus guided me to HDs page offering $69 5 yr warranty. I'm buying that one, but HD people blew it at the store. I went back and told them. Also, I provided the new drip pan and had to pay $45 to have them sit the heater in it. That shouldn't even be a charge at all!

Great Service!

Thank you Home Depot for coming to our rescue. We had originally requested service from a different company that was late, was rude and unable to install the water heater. I called Home Depot and they provided me with excellent service on the phone. The installer came on time and installed the unit without any problems. We are truly thankful and will definitely recommend you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common water heater replacement questions

How do I know if I need a new water heater?

There are several signs that may indicate your water heater might be failing: water buildup in or around your water heater, water-quality issues, or the unit no longer provides the same temperature or duration of hot water as it did in the past. An in-home inspection can determine whether or not you need to install a new water heater.

What factors should I consider when replacing a water heater?

Your installer will help you consider the right fuel source (gas or electric), storage capacity (30 to 80 gallons available), tank type (tank or tankless), and warranty (The Home Depot offers 6, 9, and 12-year warranties).

What's the difference between gas water heaters and electric ones?

Gas water heaters usually cost less to operate, but are slightly more expensive upfront and less efficient overall. On the other hand, electric water heaters cost more to operate, but are more efficient and offer higher energy-factor ratings.

How long can I expect my water heater to last?

The Home Depot sells water heaters and, depending on what model you purchase, some come with a manufacturer's warranty. Please reference the product materials that came with your unit.

Can I install a water heater myself?

It is recommended that you hire a licensed, professional to install your water heater. Improper installation of a water heater could cause catastrophic damage or injury if the unit is not installed properly. Be sure to use a trained professional by scheduling an in-home inspection.
