I requested a quote Friday night, received a response back within 5 minutes and Joel arrived the next morning on time. Very personable. Laid out the options in an organized manner. Installed the water heater the same day. Assuming no issues with the installation (time will tell), good experience overall. Now time to take a hot shower!

They did a great installing spigots! No leaks and they look a lot nicer than the older ones we had. They also cleaned up after themselves which is very much appreciated! We plan on having them install a new water heater for us as we trust their work.

Joe was great. He responded right way with a quote to install a new water heater on a Sunday. He showed up on time, completed the job on time and on budget. He was friendly and professional - a pleasure to do business with. I would certainly hire him again.

I replaced my original furnace, AC and water heater at my condo with Edward at A&M Services. From start to finish, it went exactly as you would want any transaction to go. Edward was responsive, prompt, and friendly. He kept me in the loop of the status of everything going on. He handled the job with great care and made sure I was pleased with everything. Overall, it was a job well done all around. I highly recommend A&M Services!

I hired Bob for a leaking toilet. He was prompt and very flexible. I work full time and he was able to accommodate my schedule. Toilet was fixed. I called him again to install appliances. Again he was very flexible and changed his schedule to accommodate mine. Also I needed my heater fixed. He got it working, but then more air got in the line and the zone stopped working again. I called him and he came to my rescue the next day (which happened to be Sunday) and was able to fix the problem. I am grateful to have found someone so versatile, reliable, and flexible. I will be hiring him many more times. You won't be sorry to hire this company, but don' t keep him too busy because I need him! 😄

Vincent was great. He came in, took time to explain everything on how the water heater works, maintenance procedures and he also knew what he was doing. Very nice guy, very pleasant and personable and was able to service the heater quickly. Vincent even offered to come back at not charge extra if the issue that I had contacted him for happens again. In the end it appeared to have been a simple filter cleaning procedure. Now we have to wait and see if the issue we had happens again, but I am confident that Vincent addressed the root of the problem.

They were great! When we discovered our water heater was leaking, we shut the water off and posted to Thumbtack immediately as we didn't have a go-to plumber. Colonial Mechanical were the first to respond that night and came out to take a look the next morning. They quickly confirmed the water heater couldn't be repaired and were able to replace it with a new one within a few hours. We're very satisfied with the quality and speed of their work!

After working with a multitude of contractors in all the trades, I can honestly say it was a stroke of luck that I came across Azat. Not only is he the consummate professional and expert in plumbing/gas, he is one of the hardest workers I've seen in a long time. He got my water heater connected, rerouted piping (gas and water), gave me many cost saving tips and his pricing was fair and reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend Azat for all your plumbing needs.

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!

Artie is one of the most reliable, professional people we have ever worked with. He was very communicative and honest, and worked very hard to do the extensive plumbing work we needed done. He went above and beyond to make sure we knew exactly what needed to be done and what the cost would be. We are happy to have found him through thumbtack and we highly, highly recommend him!

I am a remodeling contractor assigned to bringing a vacant 2 story house up to building code on the North Shore. The property had been abandoned before winter and caused severe water damage from frozen pipes. Several radiators, hidden pipes in the walls, water heater and heating system were all destroyed. Christopher was very patient and methodical in presenting a workable plan. And his price was quit reasonable. I deal with many trades people and Christopher is without hesitation now on my "A" list.

Needed a new water heater in my home after i noticed it was leaking. I called up Cafarelli Plumbing and Heating and we set up a date for the following day. I got to pick out the exact water heater i wanted from Lowes and sent it over to him. He picked it up and delivered it to my house upon his arrival. He was very professional with his work , leaving practically no mess behind. Now we have hot water again and cant thank him enough for his great price. Definitely recommend him as anybody's go to plumber, will definitely be calling him again in the future.

Shawn responded to my Thumbtack post almost immediately. His communications prior to the job being completed were both professional and personal. In the end, it was this quick, professional and friendly communication that led me to hire him. The job I hired him for was a repair to the basement sink drain. The old copper pipe was corroded and basically fell off the bottom of the sink. Shawn arrived less than an hour after I called him (something I really appreciate), took a look at the sink and knew immediately what needed to be done. Within another hour, he had the drain re-worked with PVC and working like a champ. No leaks thus far! Overall, I would definitely hire Shawn again, hands down. His work is professional grade and he's easy to work with.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
