One of the rainiest days in OC in years and our water heater blew out. I called Bruce and we discussed all my options in great detail. He knew all the specs on a number of different water heaters and what would be the best size for our home. He came by at the requested time ( quickly) removed the old unit picked up the new Bradford White 50 Gal unit. Very fair price and quality workmanship. Not only that.... he did the entire job in the rain to be sure we had hot water for the family. Quality guy with a strong honest work ethic I will use or recommend Bruce to anyone! Many Thanks......

I called Manny on Tuesday afternoon, he arrived in the evening to assess the problem. He showed up on Wednesday morning early with all material necessary to replace a hot water heater. Was finished in 2 hours and we have hot water once again. Nice guy too.

Juan is truly a professional. He provides fast quality service and is very affordable. He takes actual pride in his work and it shows. He just repiped our ENTIRE house IN ONE DAY including a new water heater. We love our new Pex pipe. If you have a chance to hire him, DO IT.

All In One Plumbing & Drains, Inc. removed and disposed of our old water heater at a $35 charge, they got the permit for us at a $50 charge plus the cost of the permit at City Hall, they picked up and transported the new water heater from Orchard Hardware, around 2 miles at a $35 charge and installed the water heater in around 4 1/2 hours and it passed inspection by the City the next day. Cesar and his apprentice were very courteous and friendly and did a good job and the only complaint I have about their service is the final price. The Thumbtack.com price they advertised online was $225 but the final price turned out to be $700, over 3 times what they advertised. I would have left off one more star in the rating but they are still cheaper than Sears and the other licensed contractors that quoted us prices on Thumbtack. A couple of the handymen on Thumbtack quoted less of a price but there's no guarantee with someone that's not a licensed and bonded contractor. I don't know what these quotes on Thumbtack are based on and I forgot to ask them about it but these people need to be more honest about their final estimates since $225 plus $120 plus the permit price of $47 doesn't equal $700 dollars.

Drain leak could not be fixed without sink replacement. Frank bought sink at Home Depot (stayed with budget) and installed with new peatrap etc. Hot water heater pressure release valve needed copper pipe extension and exit to outside. This was completed in a timely fashion. I would recommend Frank and Orlando - on time, professional and friendly.

We woke up to find our hot water out and scrambled to find someone who could come.w fix our water heater that same day. Thankfully we found Elite Contractors Inc. They sent a technician out within two hours of calling and fixed the problem within 20 minutes for a reasonable service fee. Easiest repair experience I've have in a while. Thanks, Vladimir!

Had a terrible rumbling in my water heater at the same time each morning. I knew it was not sediment or age. All of the other pros were confused but LA Plumbers immediately asked if my water pressure was too high. It was. The high intake pressure was over heating the water heater at peak times. I knew from watching master plumbing videos on Youtube, my water psi should have been 60 it was 91! John (the plumber) assessed the problem and fixed it for a price less than the average and even threw in some additional work at no cost and showed me how to save on future repairs. He put in a new pressure relief valve and water pressure regulator and showed me how they work. Problem solved. Five stars.

Isidrio is the BEST plumber (and tech) I've worked with. He was very professional, prompt, clean, and offered a very fair price. I've used him to install my water heater, fix a bathroom faucet leak, and he just remodeled by bathroom. It's hard to find people who are not just good at their job but who are also honest. I would recommend Isidrio for any job.

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.

James was a saviour. After following a bad service from Wolf's plumbing where I was left with a broken Tankless water heater to be replaced and without hot water. James promptly worked with me on my budget and my home requirement and provided me a very fast solution and a permanent one. Will use him for future works and reccommend to everyone.

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.

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!

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.
