In the process of removing a water heater from the kitchen, they nicked my tile. They offered to cover the cost of the floor tile, which is what I truly do appreciate .This is why I rate them a four out of five stars.

Our 20 year old water heater was starting to leak, so I figured it was time to replace it, and put the job on Thumbtack. Rudy made me an offer I couldn't refuse. He was very good with updating me about when he was going to arrive. We met at a Home Depot near my house to pick up the water heater, and the installation went smoothly. He gave me a list of recommendations - things that he wasn't able to do himself, so it wasn't just to get more business for himself.

Tony did a great job. After replacing my water heater, he even came back to replace a water shut-off valve (and charged less than the estimate). I will definitely use him for plumbing needs in the future.

I contacted Al's Rooter for 2 leaking shower head faucets. Some initial research shows it was time to replace the inside cartridges. I'm comfortable with general repairs around the house but this was a bigger job that was best left to a professional. Al's Service was very informative and their approach made better sense then my initial plan. The quote was reasonable and the service is great. Didn't take very long but within the estimated time of work. Very happy with the results, no leaks and new faucet handles and cartridges included in the price as quoted.

I was out of town when I needed repairs done, Rigo responded right away with an onsite quote. We arranged the work day after a Holiday, and work was completed that day! Rigo offered suggestions for the repair that made sense and were money saving. I would totally recommend Rigo to anybody needing water main and water heater replacement and/or repairs!

Kris, has repaired many different things in my house. He has always been punctual, honest, and professional. The last time he was at my house he came out to replace my hot water heater and Ihad to work. I am so comfortable with him that I left the door open, I came home to hot water! As a matter of fact I never ran out of hot water, all I had to do is text him the night previous and less than 12 hours later I had a whole new unit installed. Hi highly recommend Kristian's appliance!

I had the water heater problem, and Sam bit the work. He came and worked for two hours couldn't get it to work. He did not charge me for the work and gave me a quote for replacement. I just want with him. He came back to replace it. It was hard work but he got it done. He had the measurement but still got the unit a little bit too big so there was extra work to be done . I didn't have this experience last time I replaced the unit. Well it's replaced and he gave me a very good price.

They were at another job, said they will be at the house in the afternoon, showed-up exactly as promised, and did it so quickly. They job was professionally done, very clean, politely, and at a very reasonable price, as quoted!! We would absolutely hire them again!!

My water heater broke at 11:30 in the evening an actual plumber answered my call and was able to guide me in shutting the flow of water off and made an appointment first thing in the morning and did it for a very reasonable amount. I would highly recommend them!

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.
