MVP was hired to replace our water heater with a tankless outdoor unit, install hookups in my kitchen for a dishwasher, replumb our supply lines, and replace a leaky sewage line underneath the bathroom. They gave us a competitive price, showed up on time, and got the work done in one day. Nice guys who do good work.

Judah Carruth provides fantastic, professional, friendly, fast and efficient service. He was always at my house when he said he would be. I really appreciate the fact that he scheduled the projects around my work hours, so that I didn't have to take very much time off. He was respectful and cleaned up after finishing the work. He doesn't accept payment until the project is completed to your satisfaction. I had one large project and several small projects done. He built new stairs for my deck, fixed a ceiling and some leaking windows. He did an awesome job. I can't say enough good things. I will definitely hire him in the future if anything else need to be fixed.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. He responded so quickly and was at our house within hours and had our heater up and running again in minutes. I will definitely be sharing his name to anyone needing repair. Thank you so much.

Steve's response and arrival time was excellent. He was honest, knowledgeable, very helpful and very diligent as he worked on our problem. He did a very thoughtful job and it looks like he took care of our water leak. So far the problem seems to be corrected. I would most certainly hire Steve again.

Fatos jumped right on the project. Replaced the water heater for a competitive price. Did it in one evening and got my tenant hot water before the next day. Our tenant was happy and I was happy. Thank you Fatos.

I could give fewer stars because I paid double the initial estimate. But the additional cost was due to upgrades required to bring the installation up to current UPC. He replaced an almost 50-year-old gas water heater in the basement of a 95-yr-old house. Jeff is knowledgeable about the code, and commited to doing the job right. His communication regarding status of job was impeccable. I would recommend him without reservation.

What can I say, he showed up he told how much it was, and he even charged me what he said from the beginning. After all was said and done I couldn't even tell if he did any work(aside of the new water heater). He left no mess. A strait forward no B.S. kinda guy. I'd definitely call him again. He just gets stuff done compared to the other companies that just beat around the Bush with prices.

His power washer Anthony was great. He came over at the specified time and did the job. The driveway looks better than it did and was definitely worth the money. I would recommend A1 Enterprises for any job.

Kasey hit on all the important things you look for in a professional. He came on time, gave me a fair bid and even did the work immediately which helped us tremendously not slow down a larger project. I highly recommend him and plan on having him back to install a continuous hot water system. Thx Kasey!

Mike came over and fixed my grandmother's wall heater the same day I posted on thumbtack. He made time for us, and did the work fast and for a reasonable price. My grandmother truly appreciates his hard work and willingness to come help her at such short notice during the cold winter nights. Thanks Mike. (I would have given him a five star rating but there was no receipt or paper work associated with the work he did, and we're a family that likes to keep records and have proof of service. Other than that he was great.)

This project was to remove the cooktop and wall oven from our 30 year old house and install a range, refrigerator and range hood. This entailed reversing the fridge and range positions, building new custom cabinets, moving power, water connections, adding power for the range hood. It was difficult to find companies who would even propose for the job. Scott saw the full job more clearly than the other estimators and, amazingly, possessed all the skills to do the various tasks. His proposal was clear and explicit. He was competent, quick and thorough. He communicated well and was considerate of our time. The remodeled kitchen now gives us more food prep area and looks great. We have added drawers where we had false drawer fronts before. We found Scott through this site we'd never heard of before and are glad we did.

My hot water heater failed in a big way. I called Sidney and he came to assess it, told me what I already knew...needed a new one. We talked about options, whether to go with a traditional or tankless model, and I went traditional. Sid made a recommendation for a unit that I could get quickly, and it wasn't the most expensive one, either. My water heater sits in a tight corner, and required.removal of some pegboardsort that had tools hanging on them. Sid didn't even question or complain, he just did the work that was required. When it was done, everything was put back and he hauled off the old water heater. I'd recommend Sid to anyone. He's responsive and very responsible. I found him to be honest and he does good work.

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.

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.

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.
