Cost & Energy Savings
What can you expect to pay for a storage water heater? As with any type of water heater, you need to consider both installation costs and operating costs.
A typical electric storage water heater costs $700 – $1000; a gas heater $800 – $1200, and a propane heater approximately $100 more, including parts and installation. Your specific cost will depend on the model and size of heater you select. Our team is experienced in meeting with customers all around the Everett, Bellevue and Issaquah areas, advising them on which type of water heater suits there wants and needs the best.
Operating costs depend on the Energy Factor (EF) of your heater, your cost of fuel, and the amount of water you use. A higher EF means you will use less fuel to run the heater, but a heater with a lower EF that uses a less expensive fuel may still cost you less to run than a heater with a higher EF using more expensive fuel.
