I hired Mark on an urgent notice to replace/install a new gas water heater as the old one was leaking. He promptly responded with a generous offer with a surprisingly affordable pricing (lower than other estimates from the site). He met my demands for a high quality, professional and neat in a timely manner. I was happy with the result. Mark held my high regards for future projects.

I'm so glad that Joel responded to my request for a plumber on Thumbtack. He was very curtious, prompt and thorough with all my concerns on the scope of work that needed to be done. He gave me a couple options and took it upon himself to check with the town building inspector to make sure we were going to be up to code. He also took care of bringing my water heater gas feed up to code. I couldn't be happier with the service!

Henry responded within minutes after I posted my request for help with our radiator leak. He was at our house in less than an hour and he fixed every radiator in our house. I can't say enough about how much we appreciated his help. We have asked Rite Temp Heating Company to do some more plumbing work for us.

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!

We hired Chris to complete a washer/gas dryer install in our basement. A lot of plumbers gave us the run around on the install and advised of solutions that would not meet our needs for our old house. Chris suggested an install that was in line with what we had wanted. He was able to complete the job at a lower cost than all other estimates. Chris showed up on a time and communicated any other issues along the way. We purchased our washer and dryer after the initial install and Chris was able to come back and complete the hook up for us. No more laundromat trips for us!

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!

Lee was responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. He did the routine maintenance on our five year old boiler, that we did not realize we should have been doing annually! We will definitely call him again next year---or sooner if other plumbing needs arise. He also replaced a corroded pipe on our water heater. The timing and price were great! Thank you!

Craig went above and beyond my expectation in every way. He responded to Thumbtack request in < 5 min. He took time to listen/explain the issue and suggested replacing the water heater was better option. Unlike big plumber who charge $100 just to evaluate the issue, Craig quoted me the price over the phone and got the work done in next 24 hours. I had some concern/question once the installation was done and called me at 8:00PM. He drove in right away and addressed my concern (Not something that you would expect from big plumbing companies). And best of all, Craig's quote was LESS THAN HALF of other big plumbing companies. Totally recommend him for any plumbing needs.

Mike & Vince were 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 they addressed the root of the problem.

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.

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.

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.
