Traditional Water Heaters

Traditional tank water heaters are the most common type of water heater in homes today. The replacement cost can range from $2,300 to $4,500, depending on the type of water heater you choose. Electric tank water heaters are typically less expensive than natural gas tank water heaters, which require greater expertise to install. The price can also vary depending on the size of the water heater you need.

Traditional water heater systems are much more affordable than tankless water heaters. However, tankless water heaters have the potential to provide families with ongoing savings thanks to their greater efficiency. Additionally, tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years, compared to a traditional tank water heater’s 10- to 15-year life span.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are a newer technology that can provide hot water on demand while saving energy and space. The replacement cost can range from $6,000 to $12,000 depending on the manufacturer, size, and type of tankless water heater. There are three types of tankless water heaters available:

  • Non-condensing
  • Condensing
  • Hybrid

Hybrid tankless water heaters are the most expensive but are often worth the investment due to their significant energy savings. One benefit of replacing your tankless water heater with a hybrid unit is that the replacement cost is often lower than a new installation since the space is already set up for this type of water heater.
