How Much does a New Water Heater Cost? 1

You shouldn’t underestimate the importance of a hot water heater. This isn’t just a luxury item! For one thing, hot water is essential to cleanliness and hygiene. Taking a shower in cold water is more than just unpleasant; it actually is not as effective either. Continuing on, your clothes and dishes won’t get a clean being washed in cold water either. If your hot water heater is going out or already out, you need to do something about it. Clearly, letting it go isn’t a possibility.

This is particularly true this time of year. While the weather is still pleasant now, winter is on it’s way. Birmingham and the surrounding area regularly sees temperatures down into the 30’s in December, January, and February. Imagine waking up on a winter morning and taking a cold shower! That would be horrible!

You may be saying “I know I need a new water heater– but I’m worried at what the cost will be.” Let’s break it down for you so you know a little more as to what you can expect.

  • Birmingham, Alabama Average Hot Water Heater Cost $949
  • Typical Range $681 – $1,225
  • Low Cost $350
  • High End $1,600

Exactly what price you pay will depend on a few different factors. You’ll have a choice in hot water heaters, from the capacity to the brand to even the method it heats your water. Just like nearly anything else in life, the better hot water heaters are more expensive. If you want a tank made by a brand known for quality that is large enough to ensure everyone in your family can have a hot shower, it’s going to cost more than a bargain hot water heater. It’s worth it, though! In the years you use this tank, you won’t be thankful you saved $100 if the last person in your family never has a hot shower at the end of the day. You’ll be wishing you opted for the best one!
