My water heater needed a new thermostat. The serviceman had to get the part but even at that he was finished within 2 hours of arriving. He was very polite and neat. I will recommend them to all.

Rick and his crew installed a skylight and a solar tube. That did excellent work and we're very friendly and courteous. They were respectful of my home and cleaned up the mess afterward. I am considering more work in the future with them.

I wanted to hire a house painter for our newly purchased house, but in hiring Joel, we got do much more. He is a true professional who not only painted our house, but gave us ideas that maximized our positive outcome. Plus, I also hired him to install a 1/2 bath in the basement and it's the truly the best looking room in house right now, it's the only room that's completed! It's absolutely gorgeous! He did not have to hire out a plumber or an electrician, he did everything himself. All aspects of this project were spot on, plus he helped my husband install ceiling fans in our extremely high ceilings. Joel at Precision Design rocks!!! He became like one of the family!

Mr. Phillips came to my house and did several jobs for me. He put painted and put up some trim, did some touch-up painting, and caulked around my kitchen counter tops and sink. He did a GREAT job and was very neat and tidy as he was doing his work. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who wants a professional job done in a timely manner.

Quick response, affordable pricing and honest assessment of the tasks at hand. Really took time to ensure a pesky light fixture was not just installed, but perfectly aligned. We would use him again.

Was very knowledgeable and very competitive priced. My roof is 10 on 12 pitch and we did a metal roof over shingles. He had to use harnesses because it was so steep. He saved me money because I was planning on tearing the shingles off and renting a roll off. If I had done this on my own I would have spent a lot of money that I didn't need to. Affordable pricing, quality work, and he got the job done quickly. We couldn't ask for any more.

I had a new, safer stairwell installed but the builder wanted to put in an unstained,unfinished bannister. I called At Your Service and had a prestained and finished banister built and brought in to be installed. No odor in my house in the middle of winter and it was beautiful. The cost was nearly the same as one quoted but not finished by the original builder.

John Neidel of Neidel's Heating & Air not only is exceptionally competent and experienced, he is exceptionally honest. In a service industry where it is difficult to find a professional who the average homeowner—especially a single woman—can trust, I found that Mr. Neidel is a man of remarkable integrity. When my air conditioner failed, a friend with electronics experience did some troubleshooting and thought he had isolated the problem, with a fix that would require at least one new part. However, John quickly dismissed the need for any replacement parts on the AC unit, and focused instead on my thermostat, which happened to be a new digital model. Poorly written installation directions had resulted in improper wiring, which caused my air conditioner to shut down. John's fee amounted to not a penny more than what he charges for a service call: $65. A few days later, our Central-Illinois weather switched from hot to cold again, and—frustratingly—I found myself with a furnace problem. Of course, I called Neidel's Heating & Air. Although it was past business hours, I left a message on John's voice mail. He called me the next morning, telling me that he had to come to Champaign, IL, where I live anyway, so he'd be at my home in less than two hours. Again, the thermostat was the culprit, and John told me he'd seen problems with that particular model before. I still had my old-fashioned circular thermostat, so I had him replace the now detested-digital one with the old one. He also noticed that the front panel on my furnace was improperly installed, so he fixed that. Total charge: $35, because he "had to come to town anyway." Pass the word: Neidel's Heating & Air of Ivesdale, IL, does great work at the best price around. It would be just plain silly to hire anyone else!

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.
