Installation was done well, but up-selling cost me money

Initial estimate was ~2000$. But while on premise, the installers sold some stuff that I believe were not needed, but I did not want to be left hanging, so I had to go with the recommendations. I ended up paying ~2500.

Fast, Easy, Upfront, Professional

Our technician who installed the heater was great. Went through how to keep it in great shape over the years. He walked through its operation. All in all a great installation and I would heartily recommend HD install services. Setting up the install was also incredibly easy and HD made sure we were clear about all aspects.

Everything went smooth and timely.

The contractor showed up in the early part of the time frame given me and went right to work. The install need a small amount of extra plumbing and electrical work. That was done, the area cleaned up and he was on his way in under two hours. Thank you for a great job.

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.
