What Factors Affect the Cost of a Tankless Water Heater Install or Repair?

The brand and model: At Golden Rule, we can repair and install all brands and models of tankless water heaters. While some manufacturers and systems cost more to install or repair than others, we still do our best to keep you informed about those various costs. Cost may also depend on the difficulty of procuring the parts, the finesse needed for the service, and the water heater’s heating components.

The work needed. Some tankless water heater installations require modifying your existing plumbing or electrical systems to protect you from water damage or fire hazards. We’ll let you know what needs modifying and how it will impact the total cost.

For repairs, replacement parts have the most significant impact on costs. Sometimes replacing the part is equivalent to paying for a new system, and it might be more cost effective to replace it. No matter the issue, we will give you honest answers and multiple solutions.

Contractor experience: Hiring an experienced contractor can bring immense peace of mind as they hire licensed and insured plumbers that you can count on. They also have years of customer reviews that rate their reliability and integrity. The Golden Rule family has been serving Des Moines for over 20 years, and we have thousands of 5-star reviews backing up our work.

Tankless Water Heater Replacement FAQ

If your tankless water heater has a significant and permanent breakdown, then it’s pretty obvious that you need a new one for your home. But there are other more subtle signs that you might need to replace.

For example, noticing that the repair costs for your existing tankless water heater adding up or the water coming out is more lukewarm than usual are indicators that you may want to replace your model instead of repairing it again.
