Great experience! Very detailed and explained what he was fixing and why. Very fair on pricing, while he was fixing the water heater I also asked him to help with some other smaller jobs. You can’t go wrong with Carl!

We initially contacted them to install a water heater, but I was so impressed by them that I hired them to paint the interior of our home. My husband and I are both disabled veterans and started to paint our home but quickly realized it was too big of a job for us to complete. They were able to come in and pick up where we left off and fix the areas that we got sloppy on. Initially we were given an estimate of 3 days and the guy just left (on first day) and most of it is complete! He said he would come back first thing in the morning and complete it. I usually wait until the end of a job to complete a review but I am just so impressed by this company that I just had to write the review right away. They are very nice, clean, prompt, and professional. I am definitely going to keep their number programmed in my phone! I highly recommend them!

Robert was very knowledgeable and professional. He arrived right at our scheduled time to provide a quote for my project. He quickly determined the cause of my issue and provided me the information I needed to repair it myself. He also took the time to ground my water heater and educated me about the safety issues. It is always refreshing to see a business that cares about the consumer then the profit.

The tech arrived within an hour and a half of agreed time. He was familiar with the adjustment needed to achieve hotter water. He did not seem familiar with the solar system the supports the hot water heater. The end result was what we wanted. The fee seemed a bit ripe at $175 for an adjustment.

Gentle Hands is the best, hands down!!! I had just bought a home and before moving in I needed some work done - laying new flooring, moving washer/dryer plumbing, vents, outlets, installing crown molding, installing tile molding, repairing dry wall, building shelves, changing out lights and fans, building cornices and hanging blinds, and more. They hit the trifecta - responded and completed the work quickly, they were skilled at their work and did a fantastic job on everything ,and the price way very fair. In addition, they provided really good design suggestions and cleaned up after themselves. They were a pleasure to work with in my home and I would not hesitate to use them again. These guys are the guys to call!

I have a small property management company and I deal with a lot of trades people. Reece was exceptional. He made contact with the tenant, showed up on time and stayed with the repairs on the water heater until the unit was operating properly again. He called afterwards to tell me the repairs were finished. The tenant called me to say he was also very pleased with his work. His price quote was very reasonable for the work done. I would definitely hire Reece again.

I called Al-Air on a Friday morning and Jose came out later that day. He was prompt, knowledgeable and cleaned out my AC unit. He also gave me some tips on how to keep my unit working properly. I was so happy with the results that I requested an appointment for my grandfather’s house. He came out the next day and was able to fix the issue within 30 min. Which was great because it was during one a cold snap and the heater wasn’t turning on. I will always call Al-Air for all my AC needs. They are awesome.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
