They are a new business and I had my apprehension at first, but after meeting Adam, it was nice to have a personable touch to a stressful situation. Luckily he was there to catch a possible break in my 13 year old water heater!

Service: Water Heater - Removal and Installation Scarier than the clowns that have recently manifested are the horror stories with contractors and their abysmal work. Luckily, I was able to find Mr. Hankerson. He is a highly professional, and more importantly, a trustworthy contractor. His knowledge and expertise was matched only by his etiquette. Despite my incompetence when it comes to plumbing and water heaters, Mr. Hankerson was able to answer all of my preliminary questions and concerns. Subsequently, I was able to schedule a same-day removal and replacement of my water heater. After Mr. Hankerson completed the work, he spent an additional 30 minutes updating me about the new water heater and ways to extend/improve the life of unit. I will definitely hire Mr. Willie Hankerson again and would recommend him – without reservations – to anyone else.

He jumped in and helped me fix that as well. talk about crisis averted! Thank you, Tony.

Zach actually sent me an email on super bowl Sunday with an estimate and request for more information. My water heater had gone out and I'd had no water since Thursday....Monday morning Zach and I talked and he arrived promptly at 2 pm to install my new water heater. I was shown the receipts for everything and he charged me exactly what was agreed upon....which was $100 cheaper then the competition! Zach has a large stocked work truck, did not complain about needed to carry heavy things to my basement and hauled away the old water heater so I didn't have to deal with it. I would definitely recommend Zach Rotkin and have already started on a list of repairs I'd like to have him do at a later date.

After a water heater disaster and already paying a well known plumbing company 300 dollars to not repair our water heater, my husband and I were not happy about paying another plumber with high rates for little work. We finally decided to give it another try. He responded quickly and was VERY reasonably priced in comparison to some abnoxious quotes we received. He showed up quickly and got the job done in a very timely manner. Will definitely keep his business card handy!

Adam was fantastic! I hired him to help me with my hot water heater. It is old and needs to be replaced but he made a temporary fix to get me by until I'm able to replace it. His rates were very reasonable. He was professional, knowledgeable, hard working and willing to help me with multiple plumbing problems on his visit. He talked me through my plumbing issues and gave me his expert suggestions.

My water heater finally died after 18 years. I called FlowPro and Ron came out later that morning to provide an estimate to replace it. After discussing several options, I decided to go with a tankless water heater in place of a traditional gas water heater. The technician was able to come out that afternoon to replace it and I was able to take a hot shower that night! Very impressed with their prompt service and everyone was professional, from the office gal to the technician. I highly recommend them!

I called Carrico Climate Control this evening way after normal business hours, I was connected to voicemail and approximately 5 minutes later Chris gave me a call to inquire about the problem I was having. He went thru a few steps over the phone to perhaps get my heat on before he came to my home. Mind you I live in Whiteland, IN, and at the time of our conversation he was on a project all the way in Atlanta, IN which is over an hour drive to me. After attempting to resolve my problem over the phone, and after letting him know my newborn granddaughter was here, he agreed to come out tonight. In my experience with countless service companies I have never witnessed the compassion and concern Chris had for me and my family. I asked him what the trip and diagnostic charge would be, and to my suprise suprise was only $75. So Chris showed up, spent may be 20min diagnosing my problem to find out my furnace had been tripping a safety device he referred to as a "high limit". This switch monitors the heat of the internal heat exchanger. He used a neat tool that will extend thru the heat exchanger looking for any cracks or leaks that would cause this limit to trip. Unfortunately he found a crack in our 20yr old exchanger. He had to condem our furnace and disabled it so it would not release carbon monoxide into the air stream .,I which is highly dangerous and possible could have kept my family from waking up the next morning. If course he did not have access to furnace tonight. However what he did next was completely unheard of, he took a trip and picked us up a few safe electric heaters he let us borrow to get us thru the night until he could come back and replace our furnace, he provided us with a quote to replace the furnace only, and he also advised since the entire system was over 20yrs old, it may be a good idea to replace the air conditioner and components at the same time. He also made us aware that right now he is running a promotion where when you buy an at conditioner I could receive a free furnace, so if course we took advantage of that offer. Chris provided a quote which we promptly accepted. If you want to be treated well, and not taken to the cleaners by these other bigger companies, Carrico Climate Control is the place to go!! Chris makes you feel as part of the family. When considering having any hvac, water heater, light plumbing, and electrcal work perfomed Chris at Carrico Climate Control should be your first call. My total bill after hours including the use of the electric heaters was $175.00, in which Chris will deduct from our replacement cost. 5 star company for sure! Thanks again Chris

Affordable Home Solutions has been both reasonably priced and reliable. Bob and Mike have done several jobs for me. Bob rebuilt a storage barn door, replaced siding, mitigated water problems I was having in my basement and helped me find resources to locate a small gas leak. Most recently Bob and Mike remodeled my basement including demolition of the existing basement, putting up drywall, adding a new wall and doors to separate utilities from usable space, adding electrical outlets and lights and painting an epoxy floor. I have been very impressed with the quality of their work and their work ethic. I will hire them again.

I needed all vanity and kitchen faucets replaced in the house due to hard water damage and also have the water heater flushed. They were on time for the appointment and did a really good job. I called them back a week later for additional work and they managed to be there the same day.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
