TC Handyman, Tom was very professional and completed the hot water heater install within the estimated cost. In addition, he hauled away the old water heater. Tom was organized and cleaned up the work area once the install was complete. I truly would recommend TC Handyman, Tom to any one wanting the job or project done right for a fair price.

I hired Dinh to replace an old water heater. He promptly came over the same night to scope out the project. We arranged for him to come back the following day and complete the work. He arrived when he said he would and drained the old water heater. He came back later to replace the water heater. Dinh took the time to complete the job and I am very satisfied with his work.

My water heater wasn't working. I had contacted Rocky regarding a repair my water heater needed. He was on his way to a job but gave me a window of time that he would be able to come over and asses the situation. He was early, which great. Took care of the job quickly, gave me a ton of advice that i have been trying to find more information on. Took care of the job and cleaned up. Awesome! someone who delivers as promised.

I highly recommend Walter Rall. He has done a number of things for us, including installing a water heater and fixing internal and external piping. All of this work was done very professionally and at a fair price. He is also great at explaining what your options are and he follows up on his work. We have really enjoyed getting to know him and have someone we can depend on when we need work done.

Hired them to install two faucets, and repair my water heater. They were very reasonable priced, very friendly and professional, and they were respectful of my home. You can't really ask for more when hiring a tradesman.

I had another handyman at our 4plex in Sunnyvale but wanted a little more quality from his work. So I tried out Jesus. He charges a little more, but is extremely skilled whether it is installing a custom door, getting a door lock to sit just right, making plumbing changes or recommending water heater changes. He definitely knows the small details in home construction and maintenance. Stephen

I was looking for the repair service company for water heater such a long time. Few days ago I found this site and Abram appeared immediately once it's registered. His resoponce is pretty quick to schedule the appointment. Actually his repair is quick too. He cleaned the inside of equipment and replace the nozzle and it took about 1.5H. Hopefully I don't need to call him again though, I'm satisfied at least for now. Thank you, Abram!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
