About Water Heaters

How To Cash In A Water Heater

Water Heaters can be scrapped as a whole unit with the local scrap yards. If you are a contractor or a homeowner replacing a water heater, scrap the old one for cash. Water heater prices vary depending on the type, weight and location. To find water heater pricing use the iScrap App to help you find a scrap metal yard near you along with their prices for water heaters.

How Can I Make The Most Money From a Water Heater?

Check with more than one scrap yard near you to get the best pricing for water heaters. Also keep water heaters separated from any other scrap metals you have. Scrapping your old water heaters has never been easier and you can find the Water Heaters Scrap Prices even easier. Most homes have water heaters, and these will last for anywhere from 5-10 years. You have to think that they are going to be used very often and will wear out quicker then other appliances like your dishwasher and washing machines which are used not as much as the heaters.

Where Can You Find Water Heaters?

  • Homes
  • Businesses
  • Offices
  • Anywhere that you may need hot water.

What’s Inside of a Water Heater That I Can Scrap?

Many people want to know about the inside of water heaters and how they can make money with them…and it is a great question to ask. Most water heaters have an electric coil that will heat up the water that comes in through the pipes. Sometimes the water heater companies will use copper coils…but you won’t know until you take off a couple of screws to see what is inside of the water heater. Water heaters also have a lot of insulation inside the outer wall, and that is to keep the hot water as hot as possible inside of the tank.

Car Too Small? Schedule a Pickup!

If you want to schedule a pick up for a large load of water heaters, all you have to do is fill out a container request form. See more Scrapping Videos here.
