My Hot Water Tank went out on Sunday morning! I called Charles in the middle of his breakfast. He came right over and took care of the problem. The job required more work than anticipated but even with an extra charge he was lower priced than others. The new tank works great and he did a wonderful job. Would highly recommend this company!

Before deciding on what I actually wanted done (tank or tankless installation), I had a few questions and wanted to speak with someone. However, I work in a busy office, so I didn't really have time during the work week to call and ask questions. I e-mailed the company and asked if I could call on a Saturday morning to speak with a live person. I received an immediate response, yes, call anytime. I spoke with Lance on Saturday morning, he was very thorough, spent a considerable amount of time with me on the phone and answered all my questions. He texted me at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning to confirm our appointment for installation, he showed up at the scheduled time (very important to me), got right to work, explained what he was doing and why, gave me instructions on lighting the hot water heater, and he even gave future instructions for maintenance of the hot water heater. He was very helpful. He had a great attitude and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely hire Westside Plumbing again and I will certainly recommend Lance to my friends and family.

Great company to do business with would highly recommend them for plumbing and restoration. I had an issue with my hot water heater and was able to get these guys it to clean up my carpet and switch my hot water heater out with no issues. They provided me with feedback on my drywall and carpet. Fixed every thing back to normal. As if it never happened

Evan is exceptionally nice and easy to work with. I hired him to install a can light and did add on for him to repair the ceiling where the old light was, to replace the weather stripping on two doors and help with a door that wasn't shutting properly. For some reason the job took much longer than anticipated. There is an issue with the mudding texture repair quality on the ceiling from the old light location. He did try to make it right and it just wasn't working. He then was going to have someone else come by and repair it correctly. That's where the communication fell off.

Mr. Rooter installed our Navien tankless water heater. A bit pricey, but highly professional installation and customer service. I'll call them again when I have another plumbing problem or installation request. I recommend them.

Talked with Jason first and he was really good at explaining how water powered back up sump pumps work. Dare was who installed it and he did a fantastic job. Very neat and clean and actually arrived on time. Would highly recommend this company!

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.
