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.

Very resonable price for a job well don. I plan on using Chris for any future house repairs and remodeling services. Highly Recommended.

This was an excellent experience! We live in an area that got flooded severely and couldn't find anyone local to install our new water heater. Everyone was either not accepting new jobs or booked for close to a month. I tried going through a big box store and the quote was more than the water heater. Then I tried Thumbtack and Waterbender was able to come sooner and install it for 1/3 the price. They even drove 2 hours each way to do it. Highly recommend!!!

Toby was very helpful in trying to talk me through relighting my hot water heater. After trying everything possible, He determined that we needed a new one. We knew about a year ago ours didn't have much life left. Toby was very patient with me and answered every question I had. He came the next morning and installed our new hot water heater very quickly. I got three quotes for this job and his was the best. Highly recommend Pro Tech Designs.

We had a full home humidifier installed to our furnace due to extremely low humidity in the home. Frank and his team were quick to respond, offered great pricing and was great to work with. He was on time, very polite and cleaned up after the install - which believe it or not, we've had job done where scraps were left! He even double checked the work and ensure that the furnace, humidifier and thermostat were all communicating with each other. We will use Frank/Weatherwise in the future!

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.
