Yalel arrived in time. He removed water leaking of AC by cleaning the drain and installed a water detector to prevent in the future water leaking caused by clog using automatic switch-off of the AC. Good job!

It was difficult removing the old water heater because of space limitations and plumbing/electrical obstructions. With a great deal of persistence and effort Nick and Luis did a great job installing the water heater and putting things back together.

DO NOT HIRE PAUL! We spoke to Paul at Builders of America Thursday 8/3/17 and he told us that he would go measure the water heater that same day and that he would install it the next day. Then after he never went to measure or complete the job on Friday and told us it would be done on Monday, 8/7/17. On Monday, he did not show up and was very difficult to reach. He had not taken a deposit and when I asked if he could actually complete the job on Monday, he said "this is why I take deposits usually", I responded "I want to pay, I just want you to actually do the job". My thoughts on this are if you take deposits so you can hold me hostage and not get the job done, that is not good business practice. Then I was told that he would be there Tuesday "ready to work" at 9 am. I went to check on him at 10:00 am to ensure that the work was getting done and found that he was not there. I reached out again after many texts and phone calls and still no response. I am disgusted that however this man is managing his schedule he continued to lie to me to try to keep me on the hook for a job that he clearly was not making time for and did not communicate well at all.

Lamanna Plumbing are exceptional professionals and went out of their way to get the job done right. I needed a new water heater after it started leaking. The unit was still under warranty. I used thumbtack and Lamanna Plumbing responded immediately with a fair quote for installation. They were ready the next morning to install my unit. They immediately contacted me when they had difficulties with AO Smith warranty procedures which entailed ludicrous steps to get the replacement unit(taking over a month for a credit). But they worked around it and got things done. When they arrived they promptly got to work and finished everything in less than two hours. I could not recommend them anymore if you want high quality and quick service for a fair price.

I recently had a plumber to my home who claimed he could install the ECO 27 tankless hot water heater and do BOTH the plumbing and electrical work required. He completed the plumbing piece with no problem. Unfortunately he was not able to complete the electrical piece of this project. Motor Singh came to my home on a holiday weekend, immediately diagnosed and resolved the electrical issues! He was familiar with these units and knew exactly how to get them working! I will definitely hire this professional again!

Sadly my neighborhood plumber of 25 years passed away a few months ago. I went on thumbtack app to find a new one. I took a chance on the first one that called me I'm glad that did. Estafan and Robert were friendly and on time and best of all besides doing a great job putting in a new water heater they cleaned up really well after themselves before they left LOL I actually have them coming back to fix the toilet in a few days I'm glad I found these guys!

I used Mike's Plumbing for my commercial buildout. It required brand new installation of a grease trap, hand sinks, 3 compartment sinks, electric water heater. I am thoroughly pleased with Mike and Mike Jr's work ethic and willingness to complete my job in a timely manner. They were both very accommodating, understanding and honest workers. I will 100% recommend them to anyone and I will be using them in the future for any plumbing needs that I may have. Thank you both!

Joe did a great job with finding the leaks and stopping it. He was really quick to response and very flexible with the time. He’s polite and very responsive. I ended having to install a new kitchen faucet kit and Joe communicated with me via phone of how I’d like my faucet to be. He made the parts purchase prior to coming to my house. He was up-front with the price, both parts and labor. I had actually saved his number in my phone now and I will definitely recommend him to other people. Thank you, Joe, for saving me the trouble of cleaning the leaks everyday :)

I needed to replace the water heater. I purchased one and Barry promptly responded via Thumbtack indicating he could install it. His rate was competitive. My wife called him and within a couple of hours he came and intalled it. He was professional and courteous. He also does electrical work. I would definitely call him next time a have a plumbing or electrical need.

Once again, Thumbtack came through. I got 5 quotes and picked Chris to remove an old water heater and install a new one based on his pricing, great previous reviews, and quick response to my questions. He brought everything he needed, did the job perfectly, was punctual, offered some good advice along the way, and took away packing materials and scrap. He's got lots of skills. I'd hire him again over other handymen I've worked with.

Had to completely replace a 50g water heater which was leaking. Efren came out to my house on one days notice. He was on time and explained the problem. He installed an new 50g water heater and did a great job without and issues afterwards. Efren cleaned up the mess caused by the leaking water heater and submitted the factory warranty for me. He also hauled away the old water heater for me. I highly recommend this company for their professionalism and reasonable prices . They did a great job!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
