I had scheduled a repair with Sam for a dryer repair. We set the appointment and everything was good until we found out the part we need was no longer manufactured. It would have taken 4-6 weeks to ship and my wife and couldn’t wait any so we canceled the appointment. But a day later Sam wrote me back saying he found the parts needed! It was great because we couldn’t afford another appliance. Sam came out on the day scheduled and scheduled time and knock it out. He was great. No issues and I’d hire him again in a heart beat.

Thank God for Mike! Came to us late at night and did everything to try and fix the water heater before needing to replace it. Even contacted the company to see if it was still under warranty. He's diligent and was caring and so reasonable priced even for our emergency water heater break . I have recommended Mikey for a few friends too and they were happy I did . great guy!

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.

George is very professional, and he arrived 15 minutes earlier. He purchased a new water heater after he took a look of old one. And about 1 hour, he finished installation of new water heater. After one night, so far so good, hot water is there. I would use George again for my next project.

We were happy with the fact that someone came out on the weekend to replace the water heater. We were NOT happy about the fact that we were told one price when he arrived and that price increased after the work was finished.

Todd showed up on time and was very professional through the whole repair. I needed my toilet fixed and he explained what he had to do, got the parts, and even did a few extra things to secure my toilet better. He was very polite through the whole job. I recommend All Pro Plumbing to anyone looking for quality, reliable plumbers.

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.

Glen showed up promptly to change out my water heater as scheduled. He was the only contractor out here in Thumbtack to suggest installing a thermal expansion tank while I was in need of of a water heater replacement. And shortly after having done my own research, I was convinced it would in fact extend the life of my new water heater. So I cannot thank him alone for that advice. His quality of work was very professional also and he even offered me a 2 year warranty on the labor should I have any problems in the near future. I personally will use him again for future plumbing issues around my house and would definitely recommend him highly here on this forum.

I received the quotes through Thumbtack and ServiceMax had provided the best price compare to other competitors, so I gave it a try. I immediately contacted them to see if they would be able to come out servicing my heater issue on the same day. Without the doubt, they responded immediately and dispatched a technician whose name is Mike Malek to address the problem. They also provided courtesy calls prior to arrangement. He showed up on my doorstep right on schedule. Well professionalism and very prompted. He spotted the problem in no time. He quickly left to grab the part and came back in a short while. He then fixed the problem in 20 minutes. Overall, I was very satisfied with the services and the results. Highly recommended and definitely I look forward to doing business with them again.

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.
