Gregory, the owner was quick to respond and answer all my questions. He gave me honest guidance on which route to take with a new water heater for a family of 8. Most importantly, he showed up the next morning and had everything taken care of and removed the older water heater. He even fixed a toilet handle that I had been waiting for Service America to fix for the last 2 weeks. I would also use him going forward for my commercial needs along with residential issues if any happen to come up. I wish more people in the industry were like him!

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!

Honest guy. Promised there was no service fee, and he wouldn’t charge me even after spending an hour diagnosing my dryer issue. In the end he made a recommendation to just buy a new dryer as the cost for the repair wasn’t worth it. Thankful to have chosen him as a vendor. Anyone else would probably tried to make a buck by recommending to fix or charging an hourly rate.

A+ if we were in school! Robert was professional, on time, quoted me right away and stuck to his number after the job was completed. He was able to repair the water heater rather than replace and that saved me $. I would definitely recommend RW Plumbing for your plumbing needs!

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!

I hired promaster plumbing to change my water heater that was old and nonfunctional. They send me a quote really fast and was very reasonable so I booked an appointment, They sent a very nice plumber, his name is Giraldo. He was really knowledgeable and explained to me and my husband all that needed to be done. I was so relieved that came someone that speaks perfect English. I speak Spanish but my husband doesn't and he gets really frustrated when he can not understand. Every went exactly as explained. He worked non stop and left everything ready on the same day, Great customer service!!! The lady that booked the appointment even follow up later to make sure I was happy with the service. Guess what? not hidden surprises at the end, we were charged what we had be quoted. I seriously recommend this company and most important I recommend Giraldo.

We recently bought a home in Coconut Grove and we couldn’t get several gas powered appliances, including the water heater, to work properly. The sellers were nowhere to be reached to provide any guidance on how to get the various appliances going and our regular handyman and electrician couldn’t get them to work either. I found Danny on Thumbtack and was able to book him for the same day in the evening. In no time he got everything up and running. He fixed the water heater as well as did a tune up on the gas powered clothes dryer, bbq and fireplace. He was extremely punctual and professional. Moreover, he was also extremely well priced. I can’t be more enthusiastic about my praise and will definitely call him if I ever have any needs related to gas connections, appliances etc. He’s terrific!

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.

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.

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.

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.
