Kris answered my request for bid with more questions, which made me feel good about the fact that he knew what he was doing. Others just threw out pricing without understanding the scope of the job. He put in 2 water heaters for me at what I feel was a very fair price. I highly recommend him and although I hope to not need any more water heaters for quite a long time (!); would definitely use him again.

We submitted our project request on Thumbtack due to all the sudden the water heater was not enough after 10 years of usage. Tony replied my project the same night and willing to come the next day, which is weekend. And his price was very reasonable and we were very satisfied with his service. I will contact Tony for my future repair and maintainence need. Thank you very much, Tony.

Jim did a great job installing our new water heater. His price was reasonable. He advised us what we would need for the installation, such as an expansion tank, which we had never heard of, but is required on new heater installations. He worke non stop till the job was completed. I would recommend Jim to anyone needed this type work done.

Nordia did a fantastic job on my project! She is very knowledgeable and an ultimate professional. A PVC coupling at the water meter had cracked and Nordia came to our rescue on it. The job was finished on time and reliably. I would certainly hire Gotta leak again if I ever had to.

Camouflage Construction came out to quote us on having a water pipe repaired. We received a great quote and James started immediately. He found a few issues from the previous installation and was very knowledgeable on what the issue was and explained how he would correct it. The repair was all done in half a day which was great. We were very happy with the quality of work and even had better water pressure! Will be calling James again for any work I need done.

Mr. McNamara, was both knowledgeable and an expert in the field. He came in and corrected what another plumber did. He was able to bring our water heater up to code and made my husband and I feel safe! He is now our regular plumber.

I had some old pipes burst behind the wall in my kitchen and he came and cut open the wall and fixed everything. I was so worried about the price because it was an emergency because I've heard stories about plumbers charging a lot for emergencies but he didn't! I was pleased with his prices. We bought this house as a fixer upper and I knew I needed a few more things done so we talked replacing the hot water heater and repiping some of the house. Drew fixed everything and was so easy to work with and cleaned up after himself. We ended up using him on our entire remodel (kitchen, laundry, 2 bathrooms). I highly recommend him to anyone who needs any sort of plumbing work done to their home.

Nick came out on Wed to diagnose the issue with our old water heater and was able to install a tankless on Thu (the next day). On Monday morning, when we had an issue with the hot water running out, we let DNM know and they were able to squeeze us in the same day and fix the issue. (Lack of water pressure due to low flow showerheads inconsistently triggering the water heater to heat the water.) In the end, it was a minor issue that could have been resolved over the phone. But we appreciate DNM for sending Nick out the same day and fixing the issue. It was much appreciated.

We endorse and recommend Marcus without any hesitation for his skills and integrity. Marcus installed a new water heater, replacing the old one that leaked. He responded quickly on Thumbtack and was at our house within hours after we've agreed on the job and estimate. The old water heater was smaller than most of the currently available models and installed in a drawer with limited space. Marcus helped to pick a model that would fit and procured it. He completed all re-piping and came to our house twice, since some of the pipes needed extra attention. Marcus personally cared about getting the job done the way he committed and at the agreed price, even if it took more effort on his side due to unexpected issues. Marcus also assessed the flood damage and provided a quote to repair floor at second level and ceiling at first level. We are looking forward to having him work on our house for that.

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.
