Charles arrived on time to replace 3 bathroom faucets and drains. He was neat and worked very quickly. His fee was very competitive. I will hire him again when I have my water heater replaced.

I had several home repairs that needed done right away (door frame had pulled apart from house, broken board on deck, deck steps falling apart, gutters, a leaky faucet, & an electric cable that needed spliced), and James was immediately available. I already have plans to hire him for additional work. Due to the weather, things took longer than they otherwise would have, but that was certainly understandable; James continued outside work even after dark. He was always courteous. He went above & beyond what was needed. I was most impressed with his wide range of knowledge, detailed estimates, and that he stuck with his estimate even when the job entailed more than expected (I had been burnt on that score before). There were a couple of slight problems, one of which he has already taken care of, and the other which he will fix in the spring. I would actually rate him a 4.5. Also, his rates are reasonable and he uses quality materials. He did well at keeping in communication with me, especially using my preferences which were text and email.

I needed concrete poured on my exterior steps, plumbing repaired and some electrical work. Ben was always on time, offered fair pricing and did an excellent job. His knowledge of carpentry and household repairs certifies him as an expert. He's deep in thought and offers repair recommendations that are cost-effective and lasting. He's equipped with professional tools and an honest go-getter mentality. Having little knowledge with carpentry, I am always skeptical as to fair pricing. Ben told me that he's not out to make a ton of money on one job, but wants to build a business by offering fair prices and quality work. I believe him.

My furnace had stopped working and I received a quick response, professional service and a reasonable price. I am very happy with the service I received and will call Hansen the next time my furnace or air conditioner needs maintenance or repair.

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.
