Is there a difference in the cost to install the AO Smith Vertex 100 vs a standard gas water heater?

Just getting 'preemptive' information before I bid it out.

No way to answer, too many installation factors and variables involved to offer assistance.

Should be relatively easy?

New construction, walls are all open, both can be simply vented through the basement wall.

Is there anything more complicated about installing a condensing water heater than installing a standard water heater? I hear the only different thing is the addition of a drain pipe.
