This is the second time I hired Right Method Electric. The first time was to fix my kitchen lights, and the second was to replace my water heater and fix some track lighting. In both cases Rodger was prompt and professional, and the pricing was very reasonable. I will definitely keep his number handy in case I have another project that I need help with.

Mike installed 2 ceiling fans for us on Wednesday. After they left, our water heater went out and I called them and they had it fixed within 24hrs. Mike is very knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to call him again as we will be needing some more help in the near future.

Mr. Dale is very professional and personable. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in this field. He replaced one standard water heater and installed a tankless system as well (we have two for our home). He even went above and beyond by researching water filtration systems for us. If we ever need another plumber, he will be the one we call!

I am very familiar with contractors, as I grew up in and around construction. My father was a carpenter. He used to say “Jack of all trades.... master of none”. I also worked many years biding jobs for a well-known local construction company. After meeting with several contractors we contracted with Dennis to replace our bath tub with a tiled shower, and install a new granite counter top for the vanity. We found Dennis to be consciences, reliable and very talented. He always went beyond what we expected of him. He was not the lowest bid……but his bid was very competitive. We had also hired Lowe’s to install hardwood floors in our bedrooms. When the Lowe’s installers arrived they informed us that removing carpet or moving furniture was not included in their contract. So Dennis pitched in to help move the Murphy Bed, the only piece of furniture that was left in the rooms having new flooring installed. He also came back later that day to haul away the old carpet. He did this without even being asked. He just overheard the problem I was having with the Lowe’s installers. I highly recommend Dennis at Wigwam Construction to anyone looking for an honest, reputable and the consummate contractor. My wife said it all “Thank God for Dennis!” Jim & Janet Kisling

A-1 Plumbing & Piping

    Verified review

    I used A-1 for some issues I was having in my bathroom. It is an older house and a plumber with experience is required. They knew how to service and repair older plumbing and how to get at it without destroying walls/tile or just replacing everything, although they could do that as well if needed. Also, when a main water line broke in my yard, the first person I called couldn't fix it because of difficulty in finding parts on a weekend. I called A-1 and he had the resources, know-how, and experience to repair the line so I didn't have to go the whole weekend without running water in my house. A-1 is definitely not reluctant to do what it takes to fix any plumbing problems you may have.

    Justin is very detailed in his work and can figure out how to solve many issues during the process. He has done excellent work for us at our residence including installing lights, expanding our driveway, removing shrubs and fixing sprinklers, repairing our window shades that wouldn't extract and installing an electrical security fencing wire. I highly recommend him as a "do it all" handyman.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

      If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

      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.

      How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

      Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

      How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

      Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
