All models have a 6 year manufacturer's warranty, and are brand new in box. Same great water heaters that the more expensive companies use, I just charge less because I specialize in water heaters. Call for model numbers.

My installations include taxes, A DRIP PAN, new stainless steel water supply lines, a new ball valve shut off, and of course, haul away your old water heater. 

Due to my Business Liability Coverage, GARAGE or CARPORT area located installations only (interiors of any kind are not covered).

Currently I am not working on water heaters with drain attached hot water recirculation pumps, water heaters larger than 50 gallon or used or are attached to solar water heating systems.  


Why choose Water Heaters 4 Less, INC ?  Simple, I have over 20 years of plumbing, business & customer service experience, and use the best water heaters like the big plumbing companies, but since I specialize in water heater service and have low overhead, I can save you $$ and you will not find better workmanship at any price.


When you call me, the price I give you over the phone is what you will be charged. I will not try to upsell anything because I am Service Provider, not a Salesman. Since I started Water Heaters 4 Less in 2007, I have provided same day service for over 70% of my installation calls. I have worked hard to earn many 5 star positive customer reviews, with no complaints, on Google, Yelp, Angie's List, etc. and feel it's important to be a member of the Arizona BBB and have an A+ rating.


My prices are the same all over metro Phoenix. From east Gilbert and Apache Junction to Laveen AZ and Avondale in the west and south from Sun Lakes / Ahwatukee up to the North Scottsdale & Peoria AZ and Glendale AZ and everywhere in between with no extra trip or mileage charges.


Beware of others advertising low "installed" prices. Usually, it's just a gimmick to get their foot in your door, then, after they arrive at your house,they add on fees for parts and drip pans needed to properly do the job, and even charge for hauling away your old water heater, making the final price much higher, not such a bargain anymore.


If your water heater is over 7 years old, two new stainless steel water supply lines are usually needed along with a new ball valve shut off and some extra pipe and fittings to properly hook up the safety valve line. If your water heater is up on a stand, a drip pan is a necessity to prevent future damage from a leak. If you are getting more quotes, ask the others if they are including all these items and services for their advertised rates.


Please visit my testimonial page to see what some past customers think of my service,

value and honesty. Thanks & hope to talk to you soon.


Sorry, I am currently not working on water heaters larger than 50 gallons or with drain attached hot water pump recirculating systems or are used in conjunction with a solar water heating system.

The size of your family, the utilities in your area and the space available for your water heater all play a role in determining how to choose a water heater. Buy a water heater with the following information in mind: 

Storage tank water heaters are the most common type. 


Water Heater Size Chart: 

People Gallons Natural Gas=

2 = 30-40 

3  = 40 

4 = 50 

5 or more 50-75


Electric= ( don't produce as much as Natural Gas )


1-2= 30-40


3-4= 50


4 or more = 50-80

Storage tank water heaters are the most common type and the best water heater to buy. These units have an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until it is needed. They are available in electric, liquid propane (LP) and natural gas models. Natural gas and LP water heaters normally use less energy and are less expensive to operate than electric models of the same size. 

• Storage tank water heaters are designated by the amount of water they hold, in gallons. Tank size is one of the major considerations when purchasing one of these water heaters. If you intend to use a storage tank water heater, use our chart as a guide to finding the size you need. 


• Another consideration for storage tank water heaters is recovery rate — the number of gallons of water they can heat in an hour. The greater your demand for hot water, the higher recovery rate you need. 


When you buy a water heater, look at the energy efficiency and yearly operating costs of a water heater before you decide which one is right for your needs. This information can be found on the EnergyGuide label. 

Know the dimensions of the space where your water heater resides. If your hot water use increases and you need to upgrade to a larger tank size, it may be necessary to run plumbing to a different area so the new, larger unit will fit. One alternative to running new plumbing is to purchase a low boy or shorty water heater. These units are shorter and bigger around than a normal water heater, allowing them to hold the same amount of water as their larger counterparts while still fitting in areas with limited headroom. 


Small storage tank water heaters, known as point of use, utility or mobile home water heaters, are good choices for adding hot water to out buildings, shops or garages. Utility water heaters usually range in size from 2.5 to 19 gallons. The largest of these miniature units can also be used to provide hot water to secondary bathrooms that may be situated far from your home's main water heater 

Periodic water heater maintenance can significantly extend your water heater's life and minimize loss of efficiency. Read your owner's manual for specific maintenance recommendations.

Gas Electric Water Heater Tips For Tempe & Metro Phoenix area 

Water heating is the third largest energy expense in your home. It typically accounts for about 14% of your utility bill. There are four ways to cut your water heating bills: use less hot water, turn down the thermostat on your water heater, insulate your water heater, and buy a new, more efficient water heater. 

A family of four, each showering for 5 minutes a day, uses 700 gallons of water a week; this is enough for a 3-year supply of drinking water for one person. You can cut that amount in half simply by using low-flow showerheads and faucets. 

Repair leaky faucets promptly; a leaky faucet wastes gallons of water in a short period. 

Insulate your electric hot-water pipes. 

Install aerators in faucets and low-flow showerheads. 

Buy a new water heater with a thick, insulating shell; while it may cost more initially than one without insulation, the energy savings will continue during the lifetime of the appliance. 

Although most water heaters last 10–15 years, it's best to start shopping for a new one if yours is more than 7 years old. Doing some research before your heater fails will enable you to select one that most appropriately meets your needs. 

Drain a quart of water from your water tank every 6 months to remove sediment that impedes heat transfer and lowers the efficiency of your heater. The type of water tank you have determines the steps to take, so follow the manufacturer's advice.

Take more showers than baths. Bathing uses the most hot water in the average household. You use 15–25 gallons of hot water for a bath, but less than 10 gallons during a 5-minute shower. 

Water Heater Problems


You should consult the manufacturer's website or literature, such as the manual, for detailed warranty information. 

Periodic water heater maintenance can significantly extend your water heater's life and minimize loss of efficiency. Read your owner's manual for specific maintenance recommendations.

I live in Scottsdale and when I called Water Heaters 4 Less my water heater was replaced within 24 hours. The installation was quick and very professional. I would encourage anyone to use this company if you need a new water heater.
