Job: Pick up and installation of new hot water heater. Jeff was on time, Picked up the unit for me and did the installation very efficiently and professionally. I was not aware that the new unit I picked out would require the installation of an additional electrical outlet to run the sensor. When Jeff saw this he made a quick run to the hardware store for the additional parts and took care of that as well. He also hauled the old unit up from the basement for me. All in all from pick up at the store to the finished installation of the new water heater and electrical outlet... just under 5 hours. Very professional and pleaseat

We were "very" happy with the great job performed by Patrick Dick, which gave us a cool house right away when we were having trouble with our AC. He was on-time, nice & really helped us out when we were going through a difficult time. He was very professional & we recommend his services to anyone looking for help with their AC or heater. We'll be calling him in the Fall to tune up our furnace. Thanks, Patrick. We really appreciate you. :)

He installed a water heater and found out there was a bigger problem and completed the job. I was told by a company it would be a two man job but he was able to do it himself. I have a house that needs work before I sell it and I will be calling Aaron for sure.

Tim called and he could come early than expected. That was fine. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and kept us informed on everything he did. Installed our water heater and removed the old one. His price was great! Very pleased with him and his company! There was an issue with the gasline (no fault of Tim's). He even called us back to see how everything was going! Will definitely be calling him for other projects!

As you continue to build the customer base in your growing business, I suspect documentation from a loyal and frequent customer might help to give prospective clients piece of mind as they consider contractors for work on their homes or businesses. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to take a minute to summarize the work you have performed at our home over the last few years. Five years ago, you tackled a pretty big job at our house when we found the door to our patio deck had rotted. The ensuing water damage stretched underneath the floor of our kitchen requiring floor infrastructure and deck header board to be replaced. Along with several skilled workers, the door and frame were completely replaced and the support structure underneath our kitchen floor was replaced to near-original integrity. All of this was done at a very fair price and I remain grateful for your role in this project. A few years later, you responded to our need to replace some of the garage framing materials which had fallen into decay. You promptly arrived repairing the frame and trim work cleaning up the area around the decay nicely and restoring it to near-original condition. This work required some delay in completion due to paint drying, etc. You found ways to keep busy with other customer jobs, but then returned before end of day to complete the job. Again, the work was performed very carefully with good quality and at a very fair price. Lastly, when we needed work performed on a number of smaller projects, you arrived prepared to complete all of the tasks at one visit. These needs involved wall repair and painting, installing a water line from our kitchen sink to a new refrigerator and repairing the lighting fixture in our laundry room. You completed the tasks in a very short amount of time and once again, with quality workmanship performed at a very fair price. While I hope we will not need too may repairs in the near future, I look forward to calling on you to perform the work we need done when the time comes. Feel free to share my name and number to any of your prospective clients. I will be happy to provide them the details which qualify you to be the best choice for having contracting services performed at their home or place of business.

I contacted Shannon to put a water line in to a refrigerator. He arrived promptly, did the work well, and left the areas he worked in clean and functional. In fact, not only did he finish the plumbing I contracted him for but he was able to answer a few other questions I was just curious about (and actually asked if I had any!) I'd definitely recommend Shannon for this, and I'll be contacting him again for other things I'm sure I'll need.

He picked up and delivered new water heater himself .I was impressed with his expertise and his honest advice about the problems I was experiencing. He even went the extra mile in cleaning up the area after installation was complete. I highly recommend Joe's service to anyone. You will be glad you called him.

This was my first time using Thumbtack and thanks to Jacob, I will be using this app and his services again. I hired him to patch a cracked base board near my basement sill. There was a large amount of daylight coming into my washer/dryer area of the basement. Jacob was able to locate the issue and repair it in less than two hours. Affordable and good customer service. Thanks for the help!

Armed Forces plumbing performed excellent service, knowledgeable and personable. I contacted owner Craig when my water heater was leaking. He was prompt, installation was quick and he even provided me tips on other plumbing matters. Craig's vision for providing excellent honest service is a cut above all the others. I would definitely refer him to anyone that needs plumbing services. And you must see his van! Clean and organized!

I'm a realtor and I don't refer someone to one of my clients unless I'm totally confident that they do good work at a reasonable price. Bob at Breeze Heating and Cooling has been outstanding. One of my clients had three bids done and then hired Breeze. The work was professional, the clients were thrilled and I'm confident referring them again.

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.
