Many people are interested in the benefits of a tankless water heater, but have a hard time finding out the cost to install one. We have decided to post some “ballpark prices” just to give homeowner’s a general idea of the costs involved. FortisBC has also published price ranges you can expect to pay.

These are intended as a general guide, so you can see if a tankless water heater is likely within your budget. Actual costs can vary widely according to your home’s needs. Call 604 GOOD GUY (604 466 3489) to schedule an in-home quotation and consultation on a new tankless water heater. Our comfort advisor will evaluate your home and determine the exact cost to install a tankless water heater.
Note that our prices for non-condensing tankless units are towards the lower end of FortisBC’s price range, while the prices for our condensing models are near the upper end. This is because non-condensing models are usually much easier to install and homeowners who choose them usually install lower capacity modes. Condensing models are usually much more difficult to install and homeowners who choose them also usually install higher capacity models.
Note that until June 30th, 2013, FortisBC is offering rebates of $400-$500 on tankless water heaters, $1000 on condensing storage tanks, and $200 on Energy Star hot water tanks. $200-$300 grants are also available through the LiveSmartBC program.
