Water Heater


Anyone know how much a water heater will cost to be replaced. It's covered under warranty, so all i'll pay is labor. I have a 40 gallon State.

It depends on where you're located.
Around here in the boonies, it's about $75.

I commonly hear people are paying anywhere from $600 to $700 for a 40 gallon water heater including installation. That is $300'ish worth of labor from what I know of the price of a new water heater. $75 wouldn't get it done around here.
