Why such a wide price range?

Water heater installations are affected by several price factors, including:

  • Tank or tankless:

    Tankless water heaters cost more than tank water heaters to install. They also tend to be more expensive to repair. But they can make up for it over time by lowering utility bills.
  • Unit size:

    The larger the tank, the more expensive the unit. This price factor still applies to tankless water heaters, which measures size in GMP (gallons per minute).
  • Energy factor:

    Both tank and tankless water heaters measure efficiency by the unit's energy factor. A higher energy factor increases unit investment, but reduces the monthly energy cost to use it.
  • Warranty length:

    Water heater warranties vary in length. The longer the length, the higher the up-front cost.

    3. Get special pricing and financing options

    Sometimes special pricing becomes available from the manufacturer for a particular unit. We check to see what rebates or discounts are available to you before we prepare our fixed-price quote. We also share low- and no-interest financing options with you upon request.

    4. Install your new system

    On the day of your installation (usually on the same day or day after your Comfort Assessment), you'll receive a text notification from your installer letting you know when they're on their way. As they get to work on the water heater, our team back at the office will process any system rebates.

    Our post-installation process includes:

    • Thoroughly cleaning our work space
    • Walking you through the installation step by step
    • Training you on how to use your new water heater

    5. Take our brief survey

    Every customer receives a survey by text message after their installation is complete. This is a great time to let us know how we did. If something went wrong, let us know and we'll do everything we can to make it right.


Celebrating 85+ years of service in the great state of Michigan

Went above and beyond my expectations…”

Kevin B was absolutely OUTSTANDING...after 3 days without hot water I was totally frustrated Christmas week. Kevin arrived on time and installed our new hot water tank very quickly and professionally. He was very detailed as to his explanation what my new tank's specs were and its benefits. He left the install area very very clean and went above and beyond my expectations. Thornton & Grooms has just become my "go to" for all my future plumbing needs.
