I needed to replace my old water heater that stopped heating my water. I put in a request and Mike responded within minutes with recommendations. He was really patient and professional when, after we realized we purchased the wrong new water heater, he helped us exchange it for the right one and took more time out of his busy day to stay and finish the job. I'll definitely be keeping him on call if I have any more plumbing issues in the future! And, his prices are very reasonable; no hidden or surprise fees. Mike is a great guy, an honest professional who's great to work with. Glad we chose his quote.

I really appreciated the speedy service to install a new water heater on a weekend without extra cost. Gino and Alex were polite and very neat, everything was left just as it was found. I'm very happy with my new water heater and would use Ara's Plumbing again.

I am very pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Thomas Plumbing. Dan is a very nice man, diligent in his work and very fair in pricing. He completed the project of installing a new hot water heater flawlessly. He is, without question, my new permanent plumber. I am available for telephone referrals of my experience.

We hired LoProstis to assist with a water heater issue in our home. Brian, from LoProstis, called us right away for an initial consultation over the phone, and within an hour, he arrived at our house to explain what went wrong and the course of action needed to repair the water heater. We appreciated his honesty and the accuracy of his quote in order to fix the issue, but more importantly, we appreciated the education that came along with it. Not only did Brian install a new water heater in our home; he also help us to select a reputable brand, based on his recommendation and hauled away the old water heater. He did not compromise on his professionalism to charge a higher fee (given the fact it was a weekend and one of the coldest day of the year), nor use that as an opportunity for a surcharge. It's very rear to find an honest contractor and who's willing to do the right thing, and Brian has both. He exceeded our expectations and got up and running within hours. We would definitely hire Brian again. Thank you for your hard work and excellent service, Brian.

Mike did a great job on my water heater replacement project. He did what he said he was going to do, when he said he was going to do it for a fair and reasonable price. He was careful moving things in and out and his work was of high quality. He also went above and beyond to correct a couple issue he identified when completing the job. Would not hesitate to use him again or recommend him to a friend or neighbor.

I feel that I must bring to your attention the outstanding customer service I receive by your representative, Mickey Owano. I am, of course, very delighted to have had the pleasure of having Mr. Owano install my water heater. His professional and courteous attitude, expert knowledge, and patience in handling my specific issues were very important to my complete customer satisfaction. He went beyond his duties and brought to my attention a previous problem with a second water heater. He explained that the T&P relief valve was installed to short of code and the venting cap was not secured properly. After completing his installation of the new water heater, he went ahead and did the repair on the second unit on his own. I was completely shocked that he would do something as generous. Please know that your employee was extraordinary in his duties as a plumber, and as a thoughtful individual. This is one less concern for me and I am deeply appreciative of his assistance and support. While I know that Tritan Plumbing is renowned for the customer service it provides, I feel like Mr. Owano treated my affairs with the utmost importance.

The repair Technician, Miguel Vargas, responded to my call for water heater repair on a Sunday and was able to get the water heater functioning in the interim period while the part that needed to be replaced was on order. They turned this around in 24 hours and my water heater was fully repaired. Miguel was friendly and explained the issue fully to me. The pricing was fair and the work was done expeditiously. I would highly recommend him and All-4Climates, for Heating, Cooling and Water Heater issues.

Hydro Tech Max Plumbing was able to come onsite within a few hours to assess the water heater. Once determined it needed to be replaced, they got a brand new water heater installed the same day! Great service!

Jason provided a high level of service. We had other HVAC/Boiler vendors and all of them recommended a boiler based on the square footage of the unit as opposed to the length of the coils in the house. Jason properly measured and recommended a boiler for us that was not only right for the space, but right for the existing infrastructure. Jason was professional, very knowledgeable, punctual and did the work at a very fair price. Jason also installed a water heater for us the same day. I highly recommend Jason for boiler and water heater installations!

My water heater broke on a Saturday night. I called Sunday morning, and Tom showed up exactly when he said he would that same day. He completed the job quickly, and answered all of my questions about my water heater and about possible replacement models. He was a true professional in every way.

    We had a leak in our water heater. Dan Cox informed me it was still under warranty and he made sure I got a new one for almost no cost. Dan and his assistant removed the water heater and installed the new one within a couple of hours. His work is top quality; he's prompt, honest, and very attentive to detail. Dan is also very fair in his pricing. I highly recommend him for any plumbing job!

    Chavez Heating replaced my water heater. They did all the needed upgrades, and best of all for a very reasonable price. Brian & Efrain are honest gentleman. It was a tight squeeze in the area they were working, but they removed my big, old heavy water heater & were very mindful not to destroy surrounding area when taking it out & replacing new water heater. They took their time and did a great job! They left the area clean and hauled away old water heater. Thanks guys! Would recommend to give these fellas a try. You'll be happy you did.

    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.
