Several signs could indicate your water heater may be failing: water buildup in or around your water heater, water quality issues, or a reduction in the temperature or supply of hot water. An in-home inspection can help determine whether or not you need to install a new water heater.

Your installer will help you consider the right fuel source (gas or electric), storage capacity (30 to 80 gallons available) and tank type (tank or tankless).

Gas water heaters usually cost less to operate but are slightly more expensive up front. On the other hand, electric water heaters cost less up front and use less energy, but the cost of electricity typically makes them more expensive to operate.

Some water heaters sold by The Home Depot come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Please reference the product materials included with your unit.

We recommend that you have your water heater installed by an experienced, licensed service professional.

Other considerations

Gas vs. Electric Costs

Homeowners often ask if a gas water heater or an electric unit is more cost-efficient. The answer depends on your home. While gas models are less expensive to operate, they do require an existing natural gas line. The price tag of an electric water heater is usually lower, but it can be more costly to operate. Electric varieties are also easier to install, and unlike gas units, they are less likely to lose heat.


Both tank and thankless units come with a manufacturer’s warranty. If you would like to extend this coverage.


Permits are required by most regions in the United States to install a new water heater. Please contact the governing department of your town or city before installation to ensure your paperwork is in order.
