Simply put, Jose was wonderful to work with! I came home to work to find the unpleasant surprise of a badly leaking water heater. After a little research I turned it off and determined that after its 18 year life, it needed to be replaced. After putting up my request on Thumbtack, Jose was very quick to respond and gave me some great options on how to proceed. Not only did he pick up a new water heater for me on the way, but he stopped at TWO different Home Depots to find the best one in my price range. Not to mention, this was done relatively late in the evening. His flexibility was great. Once he arrived he was very thorough and professional. He quickly installed the water heater and made sure that everything was working as designed. He even followed up the next morning to see if there was anything else that was needed. A+ overall, and I will definitely be using Jose again if something should arise with my plumbing elsewhere.

Ricardo has been great! First he installed our gas dryer. Arrived on time, finished his works quickly and handed over the receipt of materials he picked up at Home Depot. The following week he built a platform in our garage and finished the job quicker than expected. Again clearly detailing his material purchases. Highly recommended!

Oscar contacted me within a few hours of posting my thumbtack request, and came out the next day to quote and talk through the job with me. When the scope of work was more than my budget could handle, he was willing to work on changing the scope down to something that was not as ambitious as what we wanted. We did the quoting live with me to save time, and we agreed on the final scope and costs over the phone that night. The final pricing was competitive with the other bids I got while being the most flexible and easiest to deal with. He was on site at 9am the next day to get the job done, removed the old tankless water heater that had failed and installed a new Tank water heater in just over 4 hours for the whole job. He was great to work with, always easy to talk to and courteous, and was flexible to let me handle what parts of the job I could to help save a little bit of cost. I'd highly recommend them if you need a plumbing job done quickly without alot of back and forth.

Ray did an awesome job installing or washer and dryer hookup. He was extremely communicative, clear and knew his craft. He arrived early each day and respected or home. We felt very secure about the work he was doing and there were no surprises. What I appreciated most was that he and his staff/ partners were diligent about protecting our property, covering them with tarps, etc to ensure or home was not dirtied with the work. All 3 service providers, from the plumbers to the drywall and electricians were top notch professionals who did quality work. I highly recommend Ray and his team.

I needed plumbing work done in my kitchen, before the hardwood floors were refinished...I was on an extreme time crunch, Rudy came by on a Friday at 7:30pm and stay late until all the work was finished :) He also recommended a great electrical and sheetrock guy to finish my other small projects. To top things off, he even came back the next day to do one more special request - at no extra expense. I will be using him for the install of my tankless water heater and HVAC system next month. He deserves an A+

My newly installed water heater stopped pumping hot water on a late Saturday afternoon. I panicked as we have young children in the house and needed the problem fixed immediately. No plumber was available to come in the same day on short notice. I contacted Byron and within less than an hour he was at my house and was able to fix the problem. He was very professional and explained what the issues were. Byron saved us from disastrous weekend without hot water!

Thank you Ralph for an excellent experience replacing my water heater. I appreciated how responsive and punctual Ralph was. We set an appointment, he texted the night before to confirm with an approximate window of arrival, and texted again when he was on his way. He helped replace my water heater and install a new one with speed and professionalism, keeping my house clean in the process. When he came, he was prepared with all the right equipment and parts to get the job done. Would definitely recommend him for this.

Our hot water heater was 24 yrs old and it could never hold a hot shower for very long. Denver Lim came in and promptly and quickly diagnosed the problem. He recommended we replace it immediately and he came back the next day and installed a new heater in record time. Amazing service and professionalism. Really happy with the work.

Gerardo replaced both mine and my neighbor's water heaters in our condo. We had a unique situation with the configuration and size of our units, and Gerardo was able to identify a solution for us when two previous plumbers could not complete the work. The installation was done exactly as he had scoped, and Gerardo was incredibly helpful in helping us understand our choices to replace the units. I couldn't be happier with the job, and I highly, highly recommend Gerardo if you are in need of plumbing services. Thanks again, Gerardo!

I used Max when I was a building manager in San Francisco for 8 years. He was always fast, courteous, and professional. In 8 years, everything he did was perfect. Water heaters, sewer replacement, gas pipe, tankless water heaters, copper pipe, he did it all at a good price. The only time I was mad at Max was when he went on vacation and I had to hire another plumber. That's when I realized how good I had it with Max. He really is the best I've ever worked with.

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.
