Greenwood Hardware has been selling and installing water heaters for more than 35 years, with thousands of satisfied customers in the city of Seattle. We primarily install Bradford White, but alsoWinter Hot Water Heater Maintenance Tips for Seattle Homeowners - Greenwood Hardware install RheemRichmond, and GE Geo Spring heat pump water heater models.

We stock a wide range of gas and electric heaters from 20 gallons to 80 gallons, with configurations to meet most capacity and size requirements for houses, condos, and apartments.  Our Standard Water Heater Installation Package includes new copper flex connectors, installation of new heat traps, drainage and disposal of your old water heater, and in most cases, no labor charge for installation of new valves. There are no transportation fees WITHIN Seattle city limits.

On-Demand or Tankless Water Heaters

We do not install nor generally recommend tankless water heaters for a variety of reasons.

This article and this article from the Green Building Advisor explains many of the advantages and disadvantages of going tankless.

For more in-depth numbers and information you can see this study from Center for Energy and Environment. (Page 61 for a simple payback table.)

The numbers for Seattle are often even worse as most houses don’t have large enough gas lines, which can more than double the cost for the installation.

Interested in higher efficiency?  If you have the right space, consider switching to a Heat Pump Hybrid tank.


Most installations take about two hours.  Installation service is available five days a week, with emergency service on Saturdays.  Scheduling and installation are often available within 24 hours of order. Same day service is available in most cases for leaking water heaters.

We’re sorry, but we do not provide Sunday service.  Please see our referrals page for neighborhood plumbers.

Please read our CHECK LIST, and answer the questions, as this can save time for you and our technicians.


Do NOT use the checklist for a leaking tank or other emergency service.  For immediate service you MUST CALL 206-783-2900
