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.

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

I went on Thumbtack two evenings ago to find someone to demo and repair our exterior porch awning. It had been improperly installed by previous owner and had sustained water damage. C & L was the first to get back with me. They promptly scheduled a free estimate. When they came out, they seemed knowledgeable about their work and were able to text me two optional estimates in 20 minutes. They quickly scheduled a repair date for the following day. I met them at the store to purchase materials needed. They completed the job very quickly and very professionally. I was very impressed with their work from all of their team members. They took time to work on the details. After their work, they left a clean yard and porch. I literally didn’t have to do anything except meet them to purchase materials. I ran errands the rest of the day and came home to a beautiful front porch. I will reach out to them directly first for my next home project. I highly recommend them!

I needed to replace my current Gas Water Heater for a new one. Zack from Quick Drain Plumbers replied quickly with a reasonable quote. He is licensed, etc. Him and his helper came to the house on time, did the work in a timely manner, and cleaned up after the work was completed. Everything looked great! I recommend their services and will definitely use them again in the future. Great job guys!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is it time to replace a water heater?

Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

Who can fix a water heater?

When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

Why is my hot water not working?

The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

  • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
  • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
  • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

How much do new water heaters cost?

The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.
