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.

I used Dupage Home Service twice in the last 2 months and i am satisfied with their service and price. I used their service to replace a water heater and to fix tub & shower water valve. Tim is very professional and he was always on time with his appointments.

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!

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.

Vlad (owner of GTC) is very good & professional. Used him on 3 separate occasions - (1) replace heater. It went out on Dec 31, 2015 !!! Vlad came out in the evening, to see if it could be repaired on the spot, and then cam back first thing on Jan 2nd ( when the supplier opened so that he could replace the unit). Did everything cleanly! Reasonable price - even considering he came out on holiday. ( I tried to use ABC Heating emergency - quoted me $8000 or 2.3 times more - tried to use my desperate situation) . Anyways, Vlad did it better and reasonably priced! (2) Also used Vlad to replace my 10 year old AC. No problems, as expected. (3) Asked Vlad to come out and help with installing Nest thermostat. It's not difficult to do on your own - but wiring to the old unit looked messed up - and I didn't want to take a chance. Vlad cleaned and rewired it and helped me install the unit.

Overall a very good experience. We discovered we had no hot water on a Wednesday evening around 7 PM. Adam responded promptly and was at our house by 9 AM the next morning! He ultimately determined we needed a new water heating system and thoroughly explained various options. (We are not the original homeowners). Ultimately we decided to replace our two tank system with one slightly larger tank. We had hot water by Friday afternoon and the system continues to work fine! Adam left the work area very clean and disposed of the two water heaters plus the box/packing for the new water heater. Very much appreciated!! There was an extended period mid-job when Adam was not contactable. He had left to acquire the new tank and parts, stating he would be back within 2-3 hours. After 5-6 hours with no contact, we became concerned for his well-being. We could not reach him, texts went unanswered, and calls went right to voicemail. We discussed this with him in person when he returned and he was very receptive to this feedback. We would definitely recommend Adam and not hesitate to contact him for other home maintenance needs, should these arise.

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!

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.
