Bruce quickly responded to my request for a hot water heater repair, was at my house in under 60 mins on a Saturday. After an honest assessment that the whole heater needed to be replaced (my GE model was discontinued), Bruce was able to remove and install a new heater (with new valves, pipes, insulation, sediment trap) in under 4 hours. Very impressed, he’s definitely my new go-to guy!!

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.

Frank came and diagnosed the problem with the water heater. Alas, I needed a new hot water heater, he recommended the brand I should get, purchased it, and then returned to my house to install it. He had to remove the old one prior to installing the new one. His father worked with him to remove the old water heater, and the new one was installed. He worked diligently on the installation. So far, everything is working well!!

We were originally quoted $2,000 to replace a water heater. Of course I knew this was exorbitant and in no way where we going to pay this. At this point, I came across Allan. Allan went above and beyond what I would have expected. He picked up, paid for, and delivered the water heater to us! Of course I reimbursed him after the job was completed. Who does that? At any rate, we communicatedand flawlessly though text during the initial transaction. He also did it the same day that our water heater went out which was on a Saturday! Needless to say-and by all the reviews he has-Allan and his team are a breath of fresh air among the the somewhat flaky world of contractors.

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! We'll definitely be calling them in the future.

My tankless hot water heater died and Midwest came out the same day I contacted them via Thumbtack July 3rd). Mike removed and replaced my old water heater on the same day and worked until midnight to complete the job. Awesome! Big thanks for getting my hot water up and running again, and this was all on Monday, July 3rd, when most places were closed due to the holiday.

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!

We hired Best in The West Plumbing to repair a toilet, a clogged sink, replace a faucet, and repair a fire pit. They were quick to give us an estimate on the spot and were able to do the job within a day or two. Once they arrived to do the job they were quick even when they ran into a snag and found out that the handles (whatever they're called) below the sink were corroded. While one guy was working the other grabbed the parts so no time was wasted. Thank you Damien and Ryan for the awesome job! We will definitely be calling them in the future for any projects 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!

Scott Nason is the only Handyman that I will ever use.  He painted four rooms.  He repaired my fence and low voltage landscape lighting.  He fixed a bad case of dry rot in my exterior doors and exterior window frame and trim and fixed a major dry rot situation in my laundry room after installing a new water heater. He removed decades-old oil stains in my carport then refinished the concrete to match the exterior of my home.  He put up extra shelving in my storage shed and laundry room.  In a bathroom he removed and replaced tiles so the plumber could access the fixture that was being replaced and then put in a new sink and faucet, tiled the countertop in marble, slate and ascents, then put in a new mirror and lighting fixture.  He fixed the oven fan.  In the summer I plan to have him paint my exterior wood trim.  He has a large number of “before” and “after” pictures and you should look at them.  He is a perfectionist and is not satisfied until the finished look is perfect.  I would be fine if the work looked “just OK” and not perfect.  The cost of his repair of the dry rot in my doors and windows was much less than replacing the doors and windows.

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.
