For many families, their water heater is one of the most important household appliances they use in their home. A functional water heater can help you avoid discomfort and inconvenience while performing cleaning and washing tasks in winter. Your water heater is not impervious to wear and tear. Water heaters, just like other household appliances, develop problems with time. To get the most out of your water heater, conduct regular inspections and maintenance. If, however, your water heater is beyond repair, get it replaced. A water heater usually lasts between 8-12 years. If your water heater is approaching the end of its useful life, contact a plumbing contractor in Sandy Springs to discuss your options. Emergency plumbers in Sandy Springs charge between $900-$2,100 to replace a water heater. The actual cost will depend on different factors such as water heater type, project complexity, cost of permits, and cost of disposing the old water heater.
A tankless water heater usually costs more than a tank water heater. Changing the power source will also impact the overall replacement cost. Another factor that will impact how much you spend is the size of your water heater. Small water heaters are usually more affordable than their larger counterparts.
Expect to pay more for complex installation projects. Some situations that increase the complexity of a water heater installation project are:
Before consulting a plumbing contractor in Sandy Springs, check whether you need to obtain any permits from your local municipality. The cost of getting a permit will depend on whether on-site inspection is necessary, and if any changes are needed to your gas lines, electrical lines, or water lines. Many providers pull the required permits for their clients. Look for a contractor that provides this service.
You may have to incur additional costs to get rid of your old system. If your contractor does not provide this service, you may want to check with a waste disposal company whether they can dispose of the old system.

Recently my sewer line backed up and created a huge mess. It turned out that the sewer line was broken under my driveway and the only solution was to tear it up along with all of my new landscaping! I called Fletch-Barney and they were able to repair the line under the driveway using the “Cured In Place” process without damaging my driveway or removing my landscaping. This was a great option for me and it saved me thousands of dollars too!”
