Excellent customer service in the store

Home Depot's Customer service in the store, was exactly what one would want under exigenct circumstances. The contractor employed by them was minimally acceptable. Their plumbing of black gas pipe, however, leads a lot to be desired. My gas line leans so far from plumb it rubs against the water heater. Moreover it was necessary to oversee every twist and turn of the pipe wrenches.

Install went smooth.

Had to tighten a connection between the water main & water meter due to a slight drip but otherwise the install was done smoothly and only took a little over an hour to get it completed.

Very concentious installer

Installation prices have increased a lot, partly due to city inspection fees. Heater prices and recommendations at Home Depot were quite reasonable, and there was no "up-selling". Installer was exactly on time, quickly removed old heater, did installation and replacement of recirculation line carefully, checked everything, and cleaned up meticulously

Frequently Asked 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 choosing a new water heater?

Your pro 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 and electric?

Gas usually costs less to operate, but is slightly more expensive upfront and it is less efficient. Electric costs more to operate, but it is more efficient and offers 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.
