We needed a new water heater, Nick had a great quote, followed up with a quick and courteous phone call and he got the bid. He was incredibly quick and efficient, left the area spotless and was kind, helpful and friendly. He is all about saving the customer money and offered advice about issues I could deal with without having to call a plumber. That was amazing! We will recommend Nick to anyone who needs plumbing work done.

James did excellent work replacing a gas hose and turning it into gorgeous black pipes under our water heater. He also helped diagnose what we thought was a clogged drain - it was just the sewage catch thingie. Thank you James!

I needed a new water heater (fast!) and was considering going tankless. The people at 24/7 took all the time I needed to go over my options and help me figure out what the best choice for my home was. I ended up going with a highly rated and efficient tank system since the water in my area is quite hard so the added cost of installing a water softener to keep a tankless system running well throughout its intended lifespan pushed that option over my desired budget. The two man team that came to my house were quick and clean! It took less than 4 hours from the time they arrived to my hot water being back on (and I'm including the time it took for the tank to heat up after they installed it). Everything they moved was put back carefully (and correctly!) and the area looks cleaner than when they arrived. They installed, tested, and checked their work. They also attended to little details, like making sure to rinse out any grit and grime from aerators in sink faucets after we turned the water back on and flushed the lines. Great job overall. Would definitely hire them again.

This is my first time using Thumbtack and honestly, I am really satisfied with water heater installation from Walter. Our Water heater was leaking (19 years old) and needed immediate replacement since it was leaking. I was calling all over for the contractors for prices and they all ranged over $1000. Also, other contractors were willing to charge extra fees and unnecessary county code. Walter was professional and very kind. He explained in details about the water heaters and purchasing county code is not necessary. He also showed up at home depot 7 in the morning and picked all the necessary parts and water heater. All I needed to do was to make the purchase. Also, he delivered water heater to my home AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. He finished the work in a timely manner and cleaned up well. I am REALLY satisfied with his service. Walter is going to my plumber and I am going to introduce him to my friends and neighbours. His labour cost is very affordable and reasonable compare to other contractors. I was able to save hundreds of dollars in labour cost. Overall you will never regret hiring Hi solution and Walter is the guy. He is a licensed contractor.

I highly recommend Yovany. He replaced my 50-gallon electric water heater with a 75-gallon gas water heater. He was very professional and did an excellent job. I intend to use his services again in the future.

Martin Ramos promptly responded to me regarding my initial request for help with my leaking water heater located in Montgomery County, MD. He took a little over two hours to fix the leak and install a new kitchen faucet. He unexpectedly got the second job of installing the new kitchen faucet as I was impressed by his straightforward and no-nonsense manner of showing me essential options available to resolve my plumbing needs. Despite being on a very tight schedule, he was willing to fix my leaking water heater on the next day, a Saturday, beginning at 7:30 am, per my request, arriving on time. I certainly appreciated his timely response, as the leaking problem was accelerating from bad to worse, thereby showing his empathy and acceptance of a customer’s emergency needs, as well as his cleaning up of the areas where he had done his jobs. So far, his two works are fine and have not incurred any issue or problem. Thumbtack indicated that up to five professional plumbers would respond to my call for services. Eventually, I received only two: one was Martin Ramos whereas the other made no indication of being a licensed plumber. A larger number of responses would perhaps provide a larger pool of choices for us customers. As for Martin Ramos, I could be so carried away by his customer-centered approach of doing his business that I failed to see any serious shortcomings of his. Seemingly, nothing went wrong as I was not watching over his shoulders while he was doing his work. Perhaps he could do better if he would be willing to offer his returning customers a goodwill deal that will even be better than his current fees, which are already reasonable given his ample years of professional experiences and commendable services. Thanks to Thumbtack and Martin Ramos, I now can enjoy my water heater and new kitchen faucet sooner rather than later. I’ll return to Thumbtack in the future for help with other service needs and recommend Thumbtack to others.

I hired Antonio (Tony) Sanchez from Renaissance Restoration to complete a kitchen renovation this past fall (sorry I did not get around to completing this review sooner!). I did all the demolition, but the job included lights and electrical, plumbing repair, cabinet and counter top install, appliance install, and painting. Tony gave a very reasonable estimate and personally worked on my project with his assistant from start to finish as opposed to having one of his employees complete the job. As he began the job, he soon realized that virtually nothing from the original construction was square (townhouse was built in 1987). However, that did not phase him as he had the skills to adjust making those imperfections unnoticeable in the end. In addition, Tony has skills in most of the trades which meant that he did not have to sub different parts of the job out; he did all the electrical, plumbing and carpentry himself. The best part of my experience working with Tony was that he discussed and explained different options or ways of completing a task to ensure there were no surprises, and I was impressed with his willingness to even teach me a little along the way. He was flexible in allowing me to have a friend install the tile floor and was understanding of my need to stick to a rather tight budget. There are only two comments I could make for overall improvement: cleanliness and timeliness. On a couple of occasions, I had to discard empty food containers and drinks that had been left behind. I attributed this to oversight and could be easily improved by making an effort to clean up the work site after each day of work. Considering it was not a space I was using though, it was not that big of a deal. As for timeliness, the project took longer than expected to complete. However, I know that my involvement did have some impact on the schedule and the fact he was doing the work himself while still managing other jobs is a factor. I would not hesitate to bring Tony in for another project in the future. I am completely satisfied with his work and would recommend him to anyone.

Julian installed an A.O. Smith PXNT-55 electric water heater. He responded promptly (first) to my request on Thumbtack. The specific model selected was based on a couple email exchanges addressing what was in place and my requirements based on the specs of existing equipment and my preference for A.O. Smith products. The day of install he texted me early and arrived punctually. Julian is professional. The removal of old equipment was methodical and install if the new unit clean and neat. The service was also a good value relative to other estimates received. Highly recommended.

After meeting with four different general contractors, Mr. Marvin Guzman with Baiza Construction, Inc showed his best attitude to take part on a serious complete home improvement we had for our 1956 home. He didn't only provided a quick estimate, But time frame to complete and over all his price. My project was based on a full 2 bathrooms remodeling, plaster walls removal/replacement, insulation, plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodeling and about 2500 square foot of hardwood floor installation. My best recommendation to future hires and families of his great quality work. My contract worth 86k were put on the best hands.

I spoke to Jon about my pilot light on my water heater that kept going out. Since I dicovered the water heater should not be in a bathroom ( which voided my warranty), he explained why and since it is in a small closet suggested I leave the door open for the air to circulate! This light was going out everyday for the last 3 days. Following Jon's advice the pilot light has stayed lit! I didn't hire him for now, but will definitely contact him for jobs in the future! Thank you so much for your advice Jon, and saving me money!

Working with Salvation LLC was a wonderful experience. Ernesto and his team are outstanding. In fact, Ernesto found a creative solution to my HVAC/water heater issue that several other HVAC companies had not even considered. The finished installation was beyond my expectations; pre-installation preparation and post-installation cleanup could not have been better. I have had HVAC/water heater work done in the past but Salvation's work was superior to all of these other companies. The work was done at a reasonable price in a timely manner and Ernesto made sure that I understood all that would be involved in the installation. I highly recommend Salvation! I have already scheduled some additional HVAC work with Salvation and they will absolutely be my go-to HVAC company going forward :-)

I sent my request through TT about 7:30 a.m. Michael was at my house by 9:30 a.m. Within a half hour, my water heater was running properly. I tried desperately to fix my water heater on my own, but realized it was time to call a professional. I was so happy he responded with so quickly to my request. I have been busy all week and couldn't get around to hiring someone. I am keeping his business card because he's very professional and knowledgeable. Michael owns a small company and gives personal service. Don't hesitate to call. Great company.

I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am that Samantha and her assistant Anthony did this job today. I hired her to bring 120v electric to a new gas stove (old stove previously had electric oven that required 240v). She was one of the best contractors I have ever hired. She ran the electric, left the area cleaner than it was before her arrival, and then hooked up the gas stove (which was not part of the original agreement.) Extremely professional, extremely competent, and I would hire her again tomorrow and enthusiastically recommend her to anyone. I hope she uses me as a reference, because I will gladly endorse her abilities and professionalism to anyone who calls me.

I needed a plumber to diagnose my sump pump system. Kenny was responsive and arrived 10 mins before our scheduled time (a rarity for local contractors)! Because I am unfamiliar with sump pumps, I was somewhat skeptical about hiring a plumber. Kenny did not waste any time and immediately diagnosed the issues. He possessed a thorough knowledge of the system and immediately earned my trust. He worked with me on pricing and charged me a fair price from his "recommended fees" guide. Kenny ordered and picked up the exact parts I needed, installed an upgraded sump pump and piping, and finished the job within two hours. Most impressively, Kenny appears to be the kind of guy that genuinely cares and looks out for your interests. Under his own initiative, he inspected other components in my utility room. He pointed out water heater leaks, and recommended adding a basin to reroute potential floods to my new sump pump system. Unfortunately, I was unable to immediately address other issues in my utility room. Out of his own generosity, he bought me an alert system that he installed in case of potential flooding. Seriously - who does that? I will definitely be calling him to fix my water heater in the near future. If you want quality service from an experienced plumber who cares, give Kenny a try. Highly recommended!

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.
