Robert and Jennifer were wonderful to work with. Robert was prompt and communicated with me what to expect throughout the repair process. I received a clear written quote and the work was performed at a price we both agreed upon. He completed my job on schedule and took pictures of the completed water heater installation. I received an easy to pay online invoice which was very convenient for me. I will definitely use their service again and recommend them to friends in the area.

My tankless water heater is over 10 years old and stopped working. It wasn't initially installed right. Mr. Cochrane installed my water heater correctly so he could descale it. The water heater hasn't been serviced in over 10 years because it wasn't installed correctly which actually caused the water heater to break and buying a new one wasn't in my price range. He took apart my old tankless water heater, piece by piece, cleaned it and put it back together. He descaled it and got it WORKING! He is a miracle worker for tankless water heaters! He did an awesome and VERY CLEAN job! Definitely recommend him to everyone. I will continue to do business with him. He definitely made my tankless water heater "Flo Right".

We will definitely be using Global Plumbing for our future plumbing needs! Quick response to the RFP, was very thorough on the walk-through taking time to ensure he understood the SOW - even made a suggestion regarding the placement of the on-demand H2O heater which saved material & time. Great communication throughout. Provided an estimate quickly and contacted me promptly once I approved it. Was able to schedule and complete the project quickly. With multiple projects ongoing I particularly appreciated their workspace being kept neat throughout the day and that they made it a point to meticulously clean up before leaving. Just can't say enough good things about both Phillip and his wife. No doubt we will use Global Plumbing for our future plumbing projects.

The owner, Brant, was willing to work to be sure that I was satisfied with the water heater that he installed. The first one was faulty. He went back and got the second one and made sure that it was working properly even working late on a Saturday, Valentine's Day.

I needed to replace my water heater for a newer model and one of my friends had experience with de Veers Plumbing and was very happy with the work they had done for her. I decided to give them a call and I would gladly call them again for any other plumbing needs in the future. They were able to replace my water heater in a few hours with little inconvenience to me or my schedule. They acted professionally at all times, were very knowledgeable about the work, and cleaned up the area when everything was done. I was very satisfied with the job they had accomplished and I have had no problems with my newly installed water heater.

I highly recommend Mr. Lowe. He came out to give an estimate on a leaky water line that turned out to be a faulty faucet. After riding with me to Lowe's to pick out a new one, he installed it for a reasonable price. I will definitely be using him in the future.

I needed my hot water heater replaced, called Home Solutions Renovation & Inspection and set an appointment. The technician that came out, Eric, was punctual, friendly, and very knowledgeable. He had the old one out and the new one in before I even knew it. Eric also left the area cleaner than it was when he got there. I am so thankful to have hot water again. Thank you, Eric & Home Solutions Renovation & Inspection. Will definitely use them again.

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.
