Most or at least a great many HVAC companies do this - though some only do furnaces, boiler, and A/C - not regular water heaters. Note many of their techs are licensed only for Heating and Ventilation, not plumbing techs, so the company has to send out a person with the plumbers license - not just any HVAC tech.


In most areas, Plumbers is probably the more common Search the List category for this type of installation.


Regarding typical cost - below is a link to one of the most popular questions with about 137 answers about that. For normal 30-50 gallon conventional storage tank type water heater - as a replacement (so all plumbing and fuel/power source and such is already in place) typically about $800-1500 these days. If your installation is old so modern safety devices like backflow preventer, expansion tank, new type gas shutoff valve and flex tubing, seismic bracing, etc has to be put in can run more $1250-1800 installed range sometimes.


If going with a heat pump type high-efficiency gas or oil water heater and new electric has to be run for the heat pump, or if changing to electric from gas or oil so a new electric circuit has to be installed, probably more commonly $1500-2500 range installed.
