Labor Cost to Install new Honeywell Gas Control Unit in Rheem Water Heater?

2015 48 gallon Rheem water heater stopped providing hot water. Gas Co. got it to work but said Gas Control Unit needed to be replaced. I just received new (in warranty) Honeywell Gas Control Unit from Rheem.
Water heater Model No. XG48T06EN40U0

Minimum service call should do it - barring any new code compliance issues, replacement is about a 10-20 minute job to install and test it to be sure fires up right. Should fire it up and let run several minutes while putting tools away, then after it has heated a bit turn thermostat down to lowest setting to be sure it shuts off right, then turn thermostat back to normal setting to be sure it fires up correctly again. Plumber will NOT hang around till it fully heats up - that takes a couple of hours usually.

Minimum plumber service charges can run from about $75-350 depending on area - normally around $125-175 in most of the country.
