I would recommend Dan for any of your HVAC needs. Our central air stopped working during some very hot days. Not only did he respond quickly, he was knowledgeable, honest and well priced. We will continue to use him for regular maintenance, as well as any issues that may come up.

Mark did an excellent job putting in my new hot water tank. He showed up on time, explained what he was going to do, and worked professionally. He also left the place cleaner than when he showed up. I can't recommend him enough.

Mark was awesome. Communication was fantastic, he got back to me instantly and out to my place. Price was reasonable and not gouging like others. Honest and trustworthy means a lot. His worker and himself treated my home and myself with respect. I'm a picky person and I combed over the work afterwards and it looked great (I'm not a novice). I can't wait for Mark to replace my hot water heater and the years to come from the services the company offers.

Edward did a great job from start to finish. First, he came after work hour to fit my schedule for a free estimate. Then, he shared good information while he fixing my problem. My problem is different rooms in the house being a completely different temperature. Some of those radiator is warm when other is too hot. Edward replace radiator vents, clean my boiler and change some breaking parts. Now I can control the temperature in each room with the new radiator vents, and my boiler run more efficiency! Work well done.

We had a new heating system put in as well as a tankless hot water heater. They also upgraded our electrical panel and put in an electric baseboard in our foyer. The guys were punctual, extremely professional and knowledgeable. I recently had an extremely experienced contactor come through for an unrelated project and he said the work that Three Brothers did was some of the best that he had seen in years. I am more than pleased with the outcome! Highly recommend!

Mahdi is beyond fantastic and a true professional. This was my second time hiring him for a job at a different property and he exceeded my expectations once again. This time around, he successfully installed a water source heat pump and gave me a great price for a top-of-the-line (Carrier) unit. His HVAC knowledge makes him an industry leader in the Boston area. Do not look any further when it comes to looking for an HVAC professional. Mahdi is extremely responsive, honest, and truly cares about his clients best interests to get jobs done efficiently and effectively.

Pascual and his team were great to work with. I contacted them, and they came out the same day to replace my hot water tank. They performed the work quickly, professionally, and for the quoted price, even discovering and repairing a propane leak while there. Highly recommended!

Jeremy and crew removed an OLD steam boiler and hot water tank and replaced with baseboard heat run off of a combi boiler. Jeremy is a very nice guy and so was his entire crew. The work was done for a fair price and overall with very high quality. I am a tough reviewer, so for me a 4 star is like most peoples 5 stars... but I'm knocking off a star based on 3 factors... timeliness, proactive communication and poor carpentry. The project dragged on a good bit longer than expected (not a huge issue since it was vacant and not needed... but still, you like a job to move along and just get completed). The proactive communication is related to the job dragging on. The crew wouldn't be there and work wasn't being done at times and I wasn't informed ahead of time as to why. Too often I had to text Jeremy to get an update (again, not a tragedy, but it's so much nicer if you are just kept informed without having to check in.) Last one is that they had to cut openings in a cabinet in the kitchen and in the kitchen floor for a gas pipe. This was done very sloppily. Granted, they aren't carpenters and these aren't highly visible spaces, but the work was messy and could have been done with much greater care. Overall, though, Jeremy is a great guy, his work on the heating system was first rate and the price he charged for the work was very fair. I absolutely recommend him and would hire him again.

I was overseas on a business trip leaving my wife and our baby. The boiler system failed with water leaking and no hot water. Brandon responded within 5 minutes of me contacting him - I was in Europe it was 11pm he was in Rhode Island it was 6pm. Brandon went to my house first thing in the morning and treated my wife so well, and fixed our boiler. Fantastic service and a great professional! Highly recommend Brandon. Thank you!!

Mr. Rooter has done several jobs for us including replacing our hot water heater. They came quickly, worked efficiently and cleaned up any debris that resulted from the job they had completed. I'd definitely recommend them to others and they'll be my first and only call whenever I have another plumbing need!

I had Artie come to the house to appraise my plumbing needs for a 2nd floor apartment. We are in the process of renting an apartment that has been vacant for several years. He was very thorough in pointing out major valve and pipe corrosion due to inactivity. He repaired a leaking shower valve in the apartment as well as replaced the valves and piping and at our discretion removed and replaced the apartment hot water heater. He provided a very reasonable quote and got the job done on the schedule he quoted. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a quality reasonably priced plumber. He is a gas plumber as well as water systems.

I hired Ron to convert an old oil-based heating system to a tankless gas-based hot water/heating system. I just can say the job was done to perfection !!! He did the job in 2-1/2 days, including the removal of the old boiler, water tank and oil tanks. The piping routes were very well laid-out to minimize changes in the old system. He obtained all necessary permits from City Hall, got clearance from the city inspector, gave me a rebate form for the heater had a very reasonable price for the job.

George did great work for me. My shower would not get any cold water, only extremely hot water. He arrived on time, was polite and did a fine job on fixing my shower faucet, which another plumber could not fix after a couple of attempts. George came and figured out the problem and fixed it within 2 hours. Amazing job and a super nice guy. Thanks George.

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.
