Nate did a great job converting my gas water heater to electric and installing the new tank. He recommended what I needed to have a cost-effective but long-term solution to the water heater problem. He worked around my difficult schedule and was transparent about pricing.

After talking with Jeff at 9:00 he was at the house on our agreed time of 11:00, correcting our issues with the hot water heater and adding cut offs for any future problems. We will be using him again for other repairs and issues. I hear he's pretty good with electrical wiring...

This review does not have enough stars to fill in for the quality work that we received from Mr. Ken. He completely removed our water heater and replaced it on a more accessible location; rerouting all connections all in a timely manner. He is truly a professional that I recommend to ANYONE! Very polite and HONEST. Please do yourself a favor and call him. Thank you Mr. Ken!

He did a great job installing a new water heater for us. He had been gone a few hours when we discovered our hot water was not working. He promptly returned and found the heating element in the new heater was bad and had to be replaced. He will definitely be the first person I contact for any future plumbing problems.

Miguel fixed the corner of my roof which was weak from water. Miguel came to my house, gave me an estimate and fixed the roof all in one day. He was timely, proficient and extremely professional. I would not only use him again but I strongly recommend him for your job. Thank you again Miguel for all that you did for me and my family.

Daniel install a garbage disposal for me and I would recommend him very highly. He is a very pleasant person, knowledgeable, very professional and makes sure his work is satisfactory and cleaned up the area before leaving the job. Will be hiring him again in the future to install a faucet on the outside of my house for the back yard.

The guys showed up on time and installed my dishwasher. They were polite and cleaned up after themselves. They ran the dishwasher and checked for any leaks. They didn't level the unit but that was a minor thing and I did that when they left. I was more concerned with the electrical and water hookup and they did a good job at that. I would recommend them and use them again.

Chris was a lifesaver. I recently bought a foreclosed property that sprung several leaks once water service was restored. He was able to repair the leaks quickly despite some of the faucets being quite old. He was also able to install a replacement light fixture and all at a reasonable price. Sincerely Kristy Marks

We had a master bath remodel which included removing a shower stall, whirlpool tub and moving the toilet to a new location. He installed new tile in the entire bathroom and master closets, a tiled shower with bench, new exhaust with light, linen closet, utility closet and a water closet. The Guys With Tools arrived as they said they would and got the job done in a timely manner. He was pleasant and easy to work with. After this job was completed, we had him come and lay more tile in another bathroom. I would recommend them (and have to all I've talked to) for any job you are considering. We will be using them again when the need arises.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long is a water heater supposed to last?

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

  • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
  • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
  • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
  • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
  • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.

How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.
