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!!

In the process of removing a water heater from the kitchen, they nicked my tile. They offered to cover the cost of the floor tile, which is what I truly do appreciate .This is why I rate them a four out of five stars.

My water heater was out of hot water last week. I have called at least 5 plumbers, all of them suggested not worth to fix it and need to install new furnace. it will cost me more money to buy new one. I have contacted Juan and he came to my house next day with the parts he bought and he fixed water heater immediately. I highly recommend him. He is very efficient and experienced and honest guy.

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!!

TJ came to the rescue with our broken water heater. He knew what the issue was from my message, responded promptly, allowed me to call at off hours, and showed up on a Sunday! His work was meticulous and he was a delight to converse with. Highly recommend him!

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.

James was FANTASTIC! Very knowledgeable and straight forward. He spent time educating me about how to perform maintenance on our new water heater in order to prolong its life. He also told me about how to keep the angle stops for the faucets inside. He wants to save his customers costly repairs...WHO DOES THAT? NO ONE! Except James...he does. OUTSTANDING! I WILL definitely without question use him for ANY plumbing needs AND I will HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. Thanks James...you were GREAT!

The BEST!! Thank you!! This weekend, I was in DESPERATE need to detach a VERY stinky, disgusting clogged sewage type hose from the plumbing that was permeating throughout the entire house and at was at high risk of spilling all over the floor. He came on Sunday(!!), removed it in no time and I don't know how, but with no smell. He even checked my other plumbing to see if everything was working. He literally saved the day, was very reasonable and a real nice guy. Definitely would hire again, call him.

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.

Brian arrived promptly to take a look at my water heater that wasn’t working. It was new and I only had it for a year so he suggested I call the manufacturer for the warranty. He replaced the water heater and it cost me hundreds less having to pay for a new one. I appreciate his honesty and help through the process. Will be using and referring him for all of my plumbing needs.

World's most inconvenient plumbing problems - no hot water! Jesus responded promptly and came right over. We made a plan for him to come on Sunday - Father's Day - and install a new water heater. He was on time, thorough, cleaned everything up and charged a very fair price. I will definitely recommend J Jesus Aguilera Plumbing to friends and will use him for my next job.

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.

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.

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.

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.
