We hired 99Handy to install a washer and gas dryer. Installation was great, only issue was apparently someone was supposed to call and move our 10am appointment to 2pm, and never did. We waited around for more than an hour before calling them to discover the scheduling issue.

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!

We needef a plumber in an emergent basis over the New Year's weekend for a burst pipe; subsequently ruining a water heater and hvac. He was there at midnight to cap the pipe, back the next day to repair the pipe. He has also spent considerable time on the phone looking for parts to make those repairs. We are thrilled with Jose. We finally have someone for our plumbing and hvac system that we can totally trust and will come when we need him.

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!

Highly recommend. When I️ realized the heat wasn’t working I️ contacted Mike. He was able to come out same day and fixed the damage caused by a mice infestation! He stayed for as long as needed to fix the serious damage done to the heater. To no fault of his own, the mice got back in the next day and he came immediately to get us up and running. He was able to take preventative measures and made suggestions for us to prevent this in the future. Will definitely hire Mike and his team again.

I needed someone asap and Nick was available, quoted his price and I knew it was a good match. He met me at Home Depot to pick up the water heater, the work was done before noon and I am very happy with this company.

Steve was out to do an estimate within and hour, work was started promptly at 9am the next day and was done quickly, efficiently and professionally. Make sure your plumber pulls the permits when replacing a gas water heater. I didn't know we needed to, but Steve took care of it!

Joe was able to come out on a Sunday with very little notice! He removed an old water heater and installed a new one in a few hours. He left the area clean and helped us dispose of the tank. He was knowledgeable and told us to call him anytime. Thanks Joe!

I needed a chimney liner and new water heater to sell my home. I got a quote from another company and they asked for a ridiculous amount of money and included a lot of work that didn't need to be done. I called Mullineaux Heating & Air Conditioning and they gave me a very reasonable quote. I hired them to do the work and they did an amazing job. It was done quickly and passed all inspections. Scott (the owner) took the time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions. I would absolutely hire them again and have referred them to some friends who all agreed that they are a great 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
