About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Water Heating Experts is owned by a Master Plumber who specializes in Water Heater Installation. Both Tankless and Tank Style Hot Water Heaters and Hybrid Hot Water Heaters. I have 25 years experience and a Master Plumber in Florida and Colorado. You do not just get an employee to install your hot water heater, you get the owner. I personally install your hot water heater or heaters. This is very rare in South Florida. I eventually will have employees, but they will be personally trained. Water heaters have gone high-tech and it is is important that your water heater is sized for your home and installed correctly. This is not a job for a handyman or some guy from Craigslist. If you do not hire us (We are licensed and insured), please hire a licensed plumber with the proper training and insurance. We install all of the top brands of hot water heaters from Rheem, RUUD, A.O. Smith, Bradford/White, GE, Rinnai, Noritz and More. Please call me personally if you would like a quote. I offer free estimates for all Thumbtack customers. Eric Strand Master Plumber Water Heating Experts LLC WHE

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I really enjoy installing the latest hot water heaters for customers. Many people are not aware that they can save up to $400 per year in energy costs with a modern hot water heater. Hybrid hot water heaters (Heat Pump) are my favorite installation. The heaters blow cold air into your hot garage plus they dehumidify the air. Also, the energy costs are crazy low and you still have a big tank to fill that roman tub. We enjoy helping customers with their hot water needs. We can replace old water heaters that have large operating costs with new efficient hot water heaters.

    Eric was very accommodating to our somewhat mixed up schedule, even making an extra trip to remove the old water heater so we could paint the inside of the garage. Always punctual, he was also very neat and tidy, not leaving a mess for us to deal with. Sometimes you have to sacrifice quality when you go with the lowest bidder, but not this time! We couldn't have asked for a better job.

    Kathleen, Thank you for your business and prompt payment. You and your husband were great to work with. Eric

    Eric arrived early! :) He had blankets that protected my wood floors. Took old tank out, and brought new tank in! Fast on both! Super happy with his service. I would definitely recommend him! Plus, you CANNOT BEAT HIS PRICES ON WATER HEATERS OR INSTALLATION!

    Eric and Water Heating Experts are off the charts awesome! He took the time to educate me about electric tankless water heaters and his quote was 1/5th the price of the highest quote I received. Even home depot quoted me 4x the price of what he ended up charging me. Eric helped me understand the Electrical requirements of the EcoSmart 47 I had purchased and walked me through getting the right electrician out to do the electrical part. The cool thing about Eric is that he specializes in ONLY water heaters so he is able to get them done fast, efficiently and for a lower cost then most. He arrived on time, was professional and got it done quickly. When dealing with a remodel like I have, I can tell you that this time of impressive service and value is uncommon. Its a breathe of fresh air to hire someone like Eric. I will be referring all my friends and family to him from this point forward. * Zero aggravation * Zero Headaches * Zero Waiting Do yourself a favor and don't waste any more of your time looking for a pro, you just found the BEST one right in front of you.

    Eric was the first to respond to our request even though it was late in the evening. Being without hot water just hours before we had a houseful of company coming into town was very stressful. Eric took it from A to Z and was at our house to replace our water heater at 9 AM the next morning. He worked quickly and efficiently and then took the time to go over all of the new features with us. His area of expertise is water heaters, so if you're looking for a master plumber that you can trust, most definitely choose him!

    Good troubleshooter. Eric figured out the problems and provided me options. Now we have hot water and good pressure to the far side of the house. Very pleased with his work. I plan to use him for any future plumbing needs.

    Garbage Disposal Installation
    Verified Review
    Work ethic, timeliness, dedication to my problem - All excellent!
    Eric was 1) on time and 2) got right to work. Very friendly and supportive. I purchased his time for 1) garbage disposal install and 2) two single hole faucets in the bathroom. He even made a quick trip to Home Depot to buy one little small part that was necessary to complete the install of the disposal. Prior to his visit, he recommended the type of disposal, testing the switch for the disposal (this was a brand new disposal install where none existed previously) and the type of faucet(s) I should purchase, which made the process more efficient. He is very responsive to my messages on the Thumbtack app. The house I bought is 30 years old; and there are no guarantees with piping/water pressure....but Eric devoted his full attention to resolving the issues under his control, which is all I can ask from anyone. In addition, he recommended that I turn off the water to the house over night (house is not yet occupied) while I purchase new faucets since the water pressure was in the old house was a little goofy and we were adjusting the hoses under the sink. PS: Don't buy faucets on Amazon unless you have physically touched them and shared pictures with the pro who will be installing them. Do this about 4 days before the planned visit in case you do order through Amazon Prime. Imagine buying the wrong size faucet. Oh the joys of home ownership! (In 5 years, I'll be a DIYer)

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We have standard flat rate pricing for most hot water heaters. Assuming that you are going to replace your water heater with the same type. We may have to charge more if you are going from tank to tankless.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I listen to the customer and address their problem or their project. We usually have a flat rate price for most installations like water heaters and plumbing tasks. We are upfront with the customer and we explain everything before hand without hidden charges.

Worked in the plumbing industry for over 25 years and I have kept up on the latest materials and techniques. I am a master plumber licensed in both Florida and Colorado.
