Hot water system installation cost depends on your plumber. There can be huge variances in what different gas fitters charge for gas hot water heater installation cost. Gas hot water system installation requires a plumber who is also a gas fitter.

A like-for-like hot water system replacement in the same spot will typically cost between $250 and $700. If you move your hot water system installation to a different location, the cost could be between $1000 and $2500, depending on the distance from the existing gas hot water installation and the electrical work required. If your hot water system replacement is from electric to LPG gas hot water system the hot water system installation cost would typically be in the $1200 to $3000 range, again depending on the hot water system installation distances from the water and gas supply, as well as any required electrical work.

The hot water system installation regulations include tempering valve regulations that now require hot water tempering valves, to protect against scalding. Your plumber will make a hot water tempering valve adjustment to make sure your tap temperature does not exceed 50°C. If you don't already have one, this will also add about $250 to the cost. These are not required for tankless instant hot water systems.
