Installation varies depending upon building codes in your area, as well as whether gas or electric. Under a best case scenario, my experience is ~$500 for a high quality Reliance gas 1212 (Ace Hardware) with a good warranty plus $50 for an expansion tank (required in some areas) and about $300 for labor. I did the pickup on the tank so this may be on the low side. Also watch for coupon specials from providers which I have seen for ~$800 in the Albany NY area. Lastly, it is very important that you do this before it is leaking, preventively on your timetable, as if they have you when you are in an urgent situation, getting multiple competing quotes is not going to be practical and you are going to be in a poor negotiating position unless you have a really terrific plumber that wants an ongoing relationship. I have gotten over 15 years life from Reliance gas water heaters. Note: read the warranty fine print as the lack of an expansion tank could void the warranty.
