Alveracervantez42 - vendors do not troll this Questions blog because it is nationwide, so most requests for vendors would not apply to them.

I presume this is a house you own or have a lease on that requires you do all maintenance - because if you rent the landlord has to fix it in almost all cases - this is an essential living function for a rental unit along with heat, running water, range, sink, flush toilets, etc.

I have not seen anything on AL about any sort of senior citizen or poverty breaks or discounts - other than the general Deals and Coupons that pop up when you Search the List under a category.

You could contact Plumbers and ask about their Senior Citizen discounts, or Search the List to narrow the list to some well-rated and reviewed ones and then check their websites (usually a link is on their Angies List profile page) to see if they list AARP or Senior Citizen Discounts - or when you can to ask about pricing ask if they have such a discount.

If improverished (legally on welfare or AFDC or Medicaid due to low income or such) you could call your local United Way office and ask if they have any member non-profits who might help out in situations like this.

Generally, for an economy water heater (assuming you mean a water heater, not a hot-water heating system) of say 30-45 gallons, about $600-1200 is the normal range in most areas for installed cost to replace an existing one (so no new plumbing or electrical needed - just the normal minor pipe tweaks to fit different heater sizes. Sometimes a couple hundred $ more if your situation requires expansion tank or backflow preventer by code but does not have them.
