Salvo did a very good job installing my hot water tank and faucet. He was flexible with his schedule and rearranged his plans when he had to come back a second time. Subtracted one star because he missed an important item in the work order. We worked around it though and in the end I was happy with the result and overall experience. I would work with him again.

Mike was the first professional to reach out to me, and was very rapid in his response to my inquiries. Our electric A/C unit was leaking water and the filter had been sucked down. As this is our first electric unit we were not sure what to do, thankfully Mike emailed me back with what he thought the issue was and was able to come out the next morning! My husband said he explained what the issue was then fixed it and charged exactly what he quoted me! Very reasonably priced, no hidden charges or fees, and prompt to respond to emails and queries! Thanks Mike we'll call you next time we have an issue or for the next seasonal check!

Tony and his son came out and were SO wonderful! I had gotten water in my dryer from the outlet in my window well, and it had flooded my basement. Tony assessed the situation and checked both my washer and dryer......drained the dryer, saved it, and got it working again....then installed a new outlet and sealed up all the ducting. Very professional and did a great job at a reasonable price.....I recommend him highly and will be calling for him again whenever I need help :-)

Working with Ara's turned out to be a very good call. My traditional 75 gallon water heater was leaking and I was trying to decide on going tankless. I decided to go hybrid tankless after doing my own research and Gino's (the owner) recommendation based on his own experience. I was able to locate the correct unit on my own, and Gino and Alec showed up when they said they would and removed the old tanks and installed the new unit. They were very professional and worked quickly, the work as far as I can tell is high quality, and the unit is functioning great, eventhough it has been only one day. I was so pleased with the entire experience I think I will be hiring Ara's as my go to plumber if other problems arise. I appreciated Gino's honesty and focus on value. Could not be happier.

Working with Brian was excellent! He was very responsive to calls/text and accommodating to fit my schedule. He was able to clear up all of the standing water in my tub and now it drains perfectly. He also gave some good pointers to prevent it from happening in the future.

MPT replaced a sump pump and added a back up battery sump pump. Showed up on time, did a fantastic job, and helped diagnose a few other plumbing issues when they were completed. Had the sump pump installed and running in less than 24 hours after making the initial call. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.

Gus was able to troubleshoot a 20 year old pressure assisted tank system, which saved me the cost of replacing and purchasing a whole new toilet. He was very focused on getting the job done correctly. He was punctual and arrived on time. He has great communication and coordination skills. He is a dedicated man. I highly recommend Gus. Thanks again Gus!

We had an emergency situation with our hot water heater that they resolved very quickly. They were prompt, knowledgeable, had great communication through the process of what turned out to be a very big job. They really took care of us. We immediately hired them to take care of a routine maintenance job as well. They were great.

Toby and Stephanie run a great ship here. My water heater went out and within an hour and a half we had negotiated the quote as well as the installation and take away. The price was reasonable and the service was top notch. Installation took about 2 hours in tight quarters and I couldn't be happier. This was all taken care of on a Saturday. The service was excellent, please spread the word as they provide top-notch service. Thank you so much!!

Mr. Jackson and crew, rescued a DIY project gone wrong. Needed a hot water tank installed, and he was able to do it the same day. He provided the bonus service of picking up the product that I purchased. He kept me informed as to his arrival time so that I was not waiting on him all day. Upon completion he made sure that everything was up to code, and that there were no gas, or carbon monoxide leaks, things I never considered when doing it myself. Will definitely use them for other projects.

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.
