I live out of the state and my mom lives by herself. One day around early afternoon last week she called me in a panic mood and told me her water heater tank was leaking badly and her entire first floor was flooded. An old lady, who has no knowledge of anything about water heater tank, live by herself; no matter which way I looked at this situation, I heard cha-ching, cha-ching! I went on Thumbtack right away as I had some good experience with Thumbtack recently for my own place. Tony responded in about 10 mins, and after reading the reviews, I contacted him immediately. His schedule was full that day. Despite I told him we probably can wait until the next day, he told me if we were ok, he would be there around 8:00PM same day as gas water heater leaking is dangerous. Tony showed up later than 8, but I think it's understandable as he was far. After checking out the leak, he told my mom the water tank needed to be replaced, and he could be there next day same time. I confirmed with my mom, she said she saw where was leaking and a replacement was a good option. Tony went out and bought my mom a new tank next day, and then went back to install it for her at a very, very reasonable price. There was a little miscommunication which is understandable as my mom doesn't speak English as the first language, and they two settled that issue. Overall, both mom and I are very satisfied with Tony's work.

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.

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 came out the same day I called him, and the next morning, I had a new hot water heater after mine all but drained itself multiple times into my basement. He did quick work, had good ideas on making sure I could drain the tank if need be with how my basement was set up, and didn't charge more than I thought it would be. All around, great job and will use in the future.

Zack came and replaced my hot water heater as a same day service. He was wonderful to deal with. Not only did he remove the old unit, but he completely cleaned up the area upon installation of the new unit. Zack was thorough and competent as well as courteous and a real professional in his work. I strongly recommend hiring him and will certainly go to him first for future work. Thank you, Zack!!

I’ve used ep210 for several jobs: conversion of oil heat to natural gas (including removal of a huge oil tank); installation of a high efficiency boiler; removal and replacement of 120 year old radiators; work on water and gas line repiping; and hot water heater replacement and installation. I’m very pleased to recommend them highly because they are honest, do great work, and do it at a great price. They are my go-to for all heating and cooling services.

Murray responded to my request quickly and came out the next day to provide a quote. I appreciated that he did some diagnostics (took off the front panel, felt the pipes, etc). The other plumbers immediately told me I needed a new water heater without that assessment. He provided two options and when I decided to get a new water heater, he came out the next day and was able to find a larger one to provide me with more hot water. Also, he gave a 1 year warranty on the work done (which none of the other plumbers offered). He added an expansion tank with the installation to help preserve my pipes as well. Further, when I noticed a small leak in my kitchen sink, he took some time to look at it and gave me a quick fix/told me where to go for the part and how to fix it myself. Overall, I had a very positive experience and would use M Resnick Plumbing again.

The plumber who came to my house was on time and had good customer service. It took approximately 2-3 hours to remove my old hot water tank and replace it. He made sure to clean up after himself as well! I would definitely hire him again.

I was frustrated by another plumber that had just quoted $1800.00 for a $100.00 part that would take an hour to replace. I called Steve and he had a plumber over within 2 hours to fix my hot water heater for a fraction of the first quote. His pricing is fair and service is fantastic!

The job included fireplace chimney sweep, damper replacement and restoration of hot water flue. The scope included sealing the chimney chase and installation of caps. All work was completed in fast, efficient and exceptionally clean manner. I would use DNG again and recommend them highly. Ken was wonderful at identifying and offered quick solutions to all issues.

I had Noah come out to my house on March 3rd to figure out why I had no hot water. He came to the conclusion that my gas valve went bad on my water heater. He came up with a price for a new one, I felt it was a fair price considering the market price for installing one. He came and installed it an hour later. He is a respectful and knowledgeable young man.

I noticed a a small leak i my basement next to the water heater round tank. The pilot light had gone out 2 or 3 times in last couple day and spent about 20 minutes each time to re-light. But called J&B and asked me to put my finger into opening to see if it was wet - and it was VERY wet which caused the pilot light R0 go out more and more often. Jim from J&B called and AS SOON Q d explained the problem and came out gave free estimate, Replace water heater asap as it COULD JUST EXPLODE AT any time and there would be over 40 gallons flooding the entire basement, J&B replaced it, Cleaned up all the water that leaked and checked the Central Air for free, replaced the filter at did not charge and for the A/C check -up and or filers and NO charge at all. Great people and RECOMMENDING J&B fr large and small and total off less than $675 completely INSTALLED!!

I had originally contacted Colton just a day before I desperately needed my hot water heater fixed! We had problems but were expecting company and needed it done quickly. Colton was extremely responsive with my phone calls and emails and arrived exactly when he said to make the repair. He is friendly and got what we needed done quickly, efficiently and with a price that matched the outstanding value! Thanks to Colton our family visit went off without a hitch! We will use My Mechanical Man any time in the future for any other services we may need!

I own an 1860 farm house with hot water radiator heat and no ductwork for central air. After interviewing and getting bids by 3 other air conditioning contractors, I called Universal Air LLC in Morgantown, PA. Bill Leone spent 2 hours with me explaining in detail everything the project would entail. He also offered what I felt was a very competitive price for a 16 seer Trane air conditioner which included the air handler, and installation of all duct work. The work crew did a great job, made every effort to be neat and cleaned up before leaving at the end of each day. Took about 6 days to complete. Very satisfied with their work!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
