I had the pleasure of using Josh and his guys from Solutions based Plumbing twice so far. The first time I got to use them the week before Christmas my hot water heater went south . Being seven years old I just assumed that I would need to replace the hot water heater. Being the honest guy that Josh's, he informed me that I only needed to replace the vent blower at a substantially reduced cost. Now I know any other plumber would have just sold me a complete new hot water heater to the tune of three grand but not Josh. They steer me in the right direction I really appreciate that. Last week I had them replace the 30 year old valves under my kitchen sink it was like they were never even there. totally cleaned up after they were done and very reasonable

Sam is my go to guy for my residence and my business. I’ve had him perform preventative maintenance on my HVAC unit at my home and business. He also fixed my hot water heater at my residence quickly and efficiently. Most recently, he came to my business, on a moments notice and got on the roof, literally in the middle of a snow storm and restored heat to my business along with a new nest thermostat. If you want professionalism, knowledge and quality work, Advanced Heating and Air is where you’ll find it.

We needed to repair a leaking pipe that is connected to our water heater urgently. Ellal was responsive and flexed his schedule in order to accommodate us. He did a great job with the repair and the final price was exactly as quoted plus parts. I will be calling him again for all our plumbing repairs and I highly recommend him.

I needed a water heater replacement and called Benny at Subzero because of his positive reviews. He completed the work yesterday and I would recommend Benny to my family and friends who have plumbing needs. He always responded to my calls in a timely manner and was flexible in scheduling my water heater replacement. Benny and his son did a great job with the removal of my old water heater and installation of the new one. They worked efficiently and carefully in the small closet space that houses the water heater. I couldn't give them a higher recommendation! By the way, Benny's price was the lowest of the three estimates that I solicited so I know I also got a great value using him and his son.

My water heater broke on and they were able to come look at my crawl space/water heater the next day on a Sunday. James took my information down and then they ordered the water heater and installed it. I believe his name was Will but he somehow was able to get the new one installed in a very tight space in my Baltimore city home. They made the process so easy, were very considerate of cleaning up, and kept me informed throughout the whole process that I decided to buy a maintenance plan with them. I would recommend using them and have already had my parents reach out.

Mike Nadwodney came out within one hour of my call. He was very nice and easy to talk to. He gave me a good price on my water heater installation, and got the work done within the same day. Excellent service and he is now getting more business from me. I'm going to hire him for other works done on my house. I highly recommend him!!!

I had frozen pipes from a poor installation. She assessed the situation and carried out the repositioning of water pipes over three floors. She worked hard and did a quality job. She was very professional. I would definitely seek her services again and recommend her to others.

Foundation fixed a loud, running toilet and a leaking water source valve. It now fills quickly and quietly. The entire job took a little over an hour. The technician was very friendly, professional, and courteous.

Due to a previous hvac job that was done very poorly Matt faced a large job at my rental property. He had to reconfigure and install components of my central ac, furnace, and water heater. Matt came out and did the work timely and with utmost professionalism. I have already referred him to friends and family. Matt is extremely knowledgeable of his craft and does top quality work. Thank you Matt!

I had Ken come out to install my tankless water heater. From the moment I spoke with him through Thumbtack, he was willing to tackle the job. I sent him pictures of the project and after coming to my home to make sure he captured everything needed for the project, his quote was reasonable and fair. He showed he cared about my home with putting booties over his shoes before coming in. He was polite and very knowledgeable about his profession. The work came out better then what I was expected. He purchased all the parts needed and installed my unit. Not only did he ensure the installation was correct, he made sure it was appealing to the eye. I could not be happier with working Living Stone. Thank you Ken, for treating me like family.

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.

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.

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.
