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

Great experience! I solicited bid requests for a non-urgent water heater replacement. John was quick to respond and even came by the house for an evaluation that same afternoon. His price was reasonable, the work was scheduled quickly, and the final product exceeds expectations. Top notch service, would highly recommend!

After contacting Shannon, he was able to come over the very next day. He's polite and courteous. My leaky toilet was repaired within an hour and he even put seal around the toilet. Then we went the extra mile and tighten my other toilet and put seal around that one. I will definitely contact him again.

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!

Ronald and Brian installed new copper water pipes in my house today. From the day they came to give me an estimate I found them to be very friendly and professional. They did a great job today, and left after thoroughly cleaning their working area. I will not hesitate to hire them again.

    We had a drainpipe leak under our kitchen slab. Not only was Kisco Plumbing the most reasonable of our 3 repair estimates, Lawrence was professional, proactive, and dependable. He treated the job and our home like it was his own. He worked through some minor setbacks until the job was completed, even late on a Friday evening. He replaced our drainpipe and hot & cold water lines under the slab, as well as our dishwasher, disposal, sink, and faucet. We will use Kisco Plumbing for all future plumbing needs!

    I had laminate flooring installed, and a large retaining wall installed behind my garage. Both jobs were done and finished very professionally. Cleanup was awesome too. I have recommended him to a couple of friends and they were impressed with his work also. He installed doors and hot water heater for friends. He is a jack of all trades and can do just about anything.

    Clary came out on 2 separate days. One to do the job, which he did well, and another to correct it. There might've been a miscommunication on what actually needed to be done, but regardless, he came out quickly to take care of it the 2nd time. The price was good, he was very courteous and responsive. I'll call him again for any tuckpointing or water related issues I have.

    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.

    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.

    How much do new water heaters cost?

    The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

    Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

    The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
