Mark G was outstanding to work with. He replaced a water heater in a difficult location and completed the work graciously. He also reconfigured the gas line to a new stove so it could be moved closer to the wall. Mark is very pleasant and knowledgable, and if you are considering hiring him you'll be making a very good choice.

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!

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 had Jorge come out to hookup a new sink with disposal and water filter. He came out within 18 hours, completed the job quickly and at a reasonable price. We plan to use him again for other projects.

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.

After our water heater broke, I hired Raymond to come replacement and it was a great decision! He was very helpful with answering questions. He came the next day and completed the job in about an hour. He was super professional, clean, and friendly to my family. There were also no surprises on the bill. He charged exactly what we agreed on, which I really appreciate. Great service. I will definitely call him again!

Quite honestly, Doug White has been the only reliable, fair & trustworthy electrician I have encountered (and I've met several) since I moved into the Metrowest area two month ago. He also does something critically important to me, which is that he communicates when I need him to, not just when he chooses to. I have rented a small house in Shrewsbury, MA & discovered a couple of unsafe electrical issues shortly after I moved in. Doug helped me see many others, and he referred me to a great plumber who fixed the two big plumbing issues within a couple of days. I also have the nuttiest landlady on the planet, because she is angry that I am paying my own money to fix up this "Shanty Paradise" (the view of Lake Quinsigamond is breathtaking). My belief is you can fix a house but you can't dig a lake, and I was determined to live on water. Doug has helped me scope out what needs to be done, and he's only getting a part of the work because my landlady is a builder & has her own people. Nevertheless, even knowing that he wouldn't be getting all the work, Doug has continued to help; so much so that I am insisting that Doug will do the work I will be paying for. Meanwhile, he has been doing things like bringing electricity to the kitchen sink for the disposal and other under-the-radar tasks. He's also fun, funny, and I like him personally.

I was frightened and apprehensive about the day my furnace would decide to go to the furnace Cemetery. Well that day happened on Friday October 13th. The furnace clearly malfunctioned and I was forced to replace it. On that very same day I use Thumbtack to locate a technician, in less than 72 hours I had been contacted by Mike at TopKnotch, had an appointment scheduled and had a brand new furnace and thermostat installed. It was absolutely painless, definitely affordable, and literally one of the most positive experiences I have ever had with a home repair.

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!

Installed new On-Demand hot water heater in my restaurant. Others said units were not big enough to handle load, Said that to this guy and he laughed. I was a bit uneasy until he informed me that these models are designed to cascade together to meet demand. No idea what it meant so he put it in contract and let me pay a week later when the new equipment proved itself. Plenty of hot water all the way around. Nice install.

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.
