Mine was $950 including the heater. It shows on the bill as one charge: no
tax nor labor, just $950. My guess that the labor was around $150 per hour
since he was doing the job for around 4 hours (including getting initial
sizing and installation information, going out to pick up the heater,
fittings, earthquake mounting stuff, blanket, some special board it sits on
and getting rid of the old one.
He did get one call on an instant heat/demand heater install and he said
they run around $2500.
Oh, this is in Southern California, fwiw. Honestly, he did a good job
though, cleaned up well, and replaced all the lines going into it and some
flue-pipe ducting as well. He secured the thing top and bottom with some
heavy duty straps for earthquake and wrapped it all up in a thick blanket
