They were extremely professional and completed the job well. They were able to move a water heater a few feet over and reconnect all the plumbing without issues.

Hired company to replace old electric water heater with a new natural gas heater. I was contacted quickly and received a very fair quote for the work that had to be done with pretty much immediate availability. He was on time and completed the job without issue. He was courteous throughout the entire process. The only complaints I could have, and I am nick-picking here, is that there was some water drainage from the old heater outside on the driveway he could have washed away and one of the pipes he installed could have been routed better to avoid a high traffic area (high risk of being knocked up against). All in all though he was on time, polite, professional, completed the work he said he would...and most importantly for a fair price. I would definitely use again.

They got out to our house quickly and were able to get our water heater working again - thank goodness! Their quote for a new heater was a little on the high side, but I'm sure it's because they do quality work.

AJ helped with a difficult water heater replacement that needed to be installed in a limited space. He was prompt and professional. Cost of the job was extremely reasonable, especially considering the extra man hours required for some unexpected setbacks we encountered. I would be happy to call on him for future service.

Robert installed two electric water heaters and replaced some piping. Rob's work was quality and to a high standard. After the job was complete I inspected the work he did and it left me feeling good about the money I paid him. As far as getting work done on your home goes it doesn't get any better than that

David has done work in every nook and cranny of our home over the past 20 years, ranging from smaller repairs to full scale construction and remodeling projects (kitchen and bathrooms). He takes pride in his work and the finished product has met every expectation we've had and then some. He takes the time to know and listen to his customers and understand what they're looking to do, and will make recommendations to guide in the decision-making along the way. He's open to suggestion if a customer has a different approach in mind and is resourceful in resolving 'the unexpected' that can be encountered on larger projects. He's a masterful carpenter and has additionally handled all plumbing, electrical, tile-work and painting needs on our recent remodeling efforts with expert finishing. Over the years, he's been equally happy to tackle a day (or half day's) worth of smaller items on the 'punch list' - things we'd never get to or know how to tackle ourselves. We're happy to recommend David for anyone seeking a full service craftsman - he does beautiful work and treats customers with respect.

They are hands down the best commercial HVAC company around.

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.
