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.

Dennis came to my home and fixed our hot water heater, installed a smoke detector and fixed our kitchen faucet. He did a great job and was very informative. Will definitely use him again. I also called him on short notice and he came today which was great.

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.

Jeremy did a great job on the three plumbing issues I was having. He even checked and gave me meaningful information about my water heater at no charge. Most important he was on time, very professional and cleaned up everything! I will be using JBM Plumbing for all my household plumbing needs and will definitely refer his company to my family and friends.

I had Temperature PRO come by to do a check-up of our heating system before the winter and they did an extremely thorough job performing the checks. I have had another company perform a check-up in the past and they came and took some quick looks in the unit and were in and out in 15-20 minutes, but Temperature PRO came by and did a really complete job looking in the furnace and heat pump that took at least an hour. They took off all the panels and used a variety of multi-meters and tools to check the electrical connections, clean out the entire unit, and check pressures using some tools they brought. The service technician (Nelson) was really great at walking me through the entire process and what they were looking for, along with tips and personal experiences. They actually identified some major issues with my heat pump that the other companies on their checks missed. I felt really confident that i had found the right people so I had them actually come out and replace the furnace and heat pump for the house. They were also running a promotion for free hot water heater replacement and installation if i was replacing both the furnace and the heat pump too (lucky me because this was something i had wanted done anyways). They walked me through my options and didn't pressure me on any of the installation options which i appreciated. Once i selected my options they were able to come in the next day to install the furnace, heat pump, and hot water heater. These guys did a really great job! I was extremely impressed with their work (took a full day to do all the work - which was a lot of work!). The work was clean, they didn't cut any corners, and were very professional and helpful through the whole installation. I would recommend Temperature PRO for any kind of heating\plumbing needs. They were able to provide GREAT service and were very helpful and friendly to work with. The prices were reasonable and i will absolutely be calling them again in the future for any other maintenance, check-ups, or fixes that i need. I highly recommend Temperature PRO.

HVAC came in with the best quote and were able to work within my time frame and budget. When the workers discovered the hidden damage under the old hot water heater, they worked up a plan that was quick and affordable to get the project done.

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!

I used Rheyler Plumbing to install a faucet. He did a fantastic job for a great price. The process couldn't have been easier for me! He was responsive, professional, and took the time to answer questions about other projects. I will be using Rheyler for all of my plumbing repairs.

Mr. O'Donnell replaced a 50 gallon water heater in my home. All parts of the project were top-rate. The quote for the work was fair, and Mr. O'Donnell arrived at the scheduled time. The whole replacement took only two hours, and the pipe connections (soldering) were the neatest I have seen in all previous plumbing work. He left the work area and my home clean. Finally, my questions about the quality and performance of the hot water heater and maintenance issues were carefully and completely answered. I found my experience with O'Donnell Plumbing to be among the best in the various plumbing projects that occur over time in a residence.

Dave's Mechanical has been a great company to work with. They came and re-connected a water pipe and cleaned my boiler. I have an old home and he got the system up and running for this winter. Dave and his crew that did the work all have substantial knowledge in this business. Im happy with the work completed and will continue to use Dave's Mechanical Services for many years to come.

I had John out to de-winterize a property I had just purchased. During the course of work, we had discovered several problems which required John to make several trips back. Broken pipes, a water treatment system which needed servicing, faucet replacements and toilet overhauls. John performed all of these services with a kind and friendly demeanor and was not satisfied until the job was done correct. John was always on time and you could tell that John took great pride in his work. I am having John replace a water heater in the very near future as well. I would not hesitate to call John for all of my plumbing needs. I plan on recommending him to all of my friends in Carroll County and beyond. Excellent work.

David installed a Trane System in our house less than a year ago and it is top of the line more importantly my daughter has allergies and ever since the new system with clean effects air cleaner my daughters allergies have decreased drastically. We are very happy with this system and because of the efficiency of this unit our utility bill has gone down by about 30-40% per month.

    Peddicord plumbing has always given us excellent service. All of the plumbers have been very polite and smart about determining the problems that we have presented them with. We have used them to replace pipes, toilets and a hot water heater and some minor repairs. Their prices have always been fair and the service is excellent

      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.
