  • Water Heaters $$$$

    I was quoted a price today from my supplier of $682.71 for a Rheem 50 gallon LP. Anyone else seeing prices like this?

    If they keep this constant % increase, I might start leaning toward tankless for more situations.

    Maybe that's the master plan. Hmmmmmm..... to increase prices enough to push out tank heaters??? Tankless more profitable for manufacturers???

    Either way, this is somewhere around a 35% increase in 6 months.

      I have virtually given up on water heaters. In order for me to make any kind of decent profit on them, I have to cover my warranty, pulling a permit, picking it up, installation..the final price is high. There are too many desperate hacks ready to undercut me in this area...I have accepted it and moved on to other niches.
      I sell maybe one water heater a month.

          The customer always has the heater sitting there next to the old to replace.

          That's by my rule...because I'm not going to buy the heater if I can't make money off it. Besides, they'll be the first to call me when it malfunctions, like it's my damn fault.


          I installed it....I didn't make it.
