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!

Circuit breaker kept turning off on our hot water heater. Taylan responded within minutes and scheduled a visit a couple hours later. He arrived on time, even in stormy weather. He tested the thermostat and heating element and found the thermostat had burned out. He replaced it quickly and stayed to make sure it was working and didn't trip the circuit breaker again. We will call him the next time we need something done around our home!

Our hot water heater crapped out Friday night of New Years weekend. We logged onto thumtack and Gary of Lamanna Plumbing was the first to respond,give us a quote (which we felt fair), and commit to being able to replace the very next morning. Gary showed up promptly and replaced our hot water heater. He was professional and clearly, very experienced. We will use his services again and, highly recommend him.

We worked with Gilberto after our home was flooded when a water heater supply line burst. Gilberto painted 4 rooms, replaced baseboards, added crown molding in one room and installed a laminate floor. Gilberto was on time each day and he and his staff were always courteous. We have other projects coming and Gilberto is in the top of our list for contractors. Thank you for working with our schedule and getting done on schedule.

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!

Mario showed up on time. Knew what he was doing. He installed a hot water heater for me and said to check it 30 minutes after he hooked up it. I checked it 30 minutes after he hooked it up and it works fine. He is also a nice man to deal with.

I needed to get my hot water working again after our Titan Instahot tankless water heater gave out. We've only had the house a couple of weeks so it was quite disappointing. I sent out a thumbtack message way after midgnight and by early next morning, Mike was one of the people who responded. When I called it was really great that Mike offered a free inspection of the plumbing, which he was able to do within a few hours that day. Not only is Mike familiar with tankless and was able to provide several options regarding that, but he was also able to provide me with estimates for going with an appropriate tank as well. Both options included what turned out to be an accurate estimate for the necessary electrical work as well. Mike was quickly able to recommend a great electrician (also called Mike) and everyone was able to work on the fix within 48 hours of the original thumbtack posting. Mike, Junior and Mike are great guys and I really appreciate how quickly and economically they fixed the problem. Couldn't be happier.

Eric was the first to respond to our request even though it was late in the evening. Being without hot water just hours before we had a houseful of company coming into town was very stressful. Eric took it from A to Z and was at our house to replace our water heater at 9 AM the next morning. He worked quickly and efficiently and then took the time to go over all of the new features with us. His area of expertise is water heaters, so if you're looking for a master plumber that you can trust, most definitely choose him!

David was affordable, responsive and very professional. I contacted David and had same day service. I needed a hot water heater installed and he met me at Lowes, helped me select the right tank, loaded it in his truck and delivered to my house. Within an hour he had the old one removed and the new one install. Highly recommend his services👍🏿

My hot water heater blew in the early hours of the morning. First Class was responsive, and answered the phone after 2 rings. The plumber was on his way within minutes. My hot water heater was replaced, and done correctly and the price was very fair. I am really really happy, and I will recommend this business, and certainly use him in the future without hesitation. Thank you for a beautiful job done correctly.

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!

Mr. Bennett successfully repaired two water closets. The first required a new wax ring and the second a re-build, both of which were well done. Impressed with the work, but also very impressed with how clean he left everything.

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.
