Nick was hired to check a non-working water heater & replaced the worn out coupling in no time. He also installed a new ceiling light socket, upgraded the existing wall switch, hung the light fixture & hung 3 additional ceiling light fixtures in other rooms. He is very pleasant to have in your home - respectful & friendly. Of course he is a very competant electrician! You hire a tradesman to do good work for a fair price - when they turn out to be nice as well, it's a real bonus! Give Nick your every consideration. We already have him booked to do additional work in our home & he is now "on -call" when needed for work at our commercial building for both plumbing & electrical jobs.

Company called me back re heater not heating water. He called within 25 min of my calling him. But below is what went on before I made the call. It probably is a defective Heater. But happy he will be out tomorrow. Have not been able to shower or do dishes. He will be out tomorrow about. 1130 am to noon. Plumber and apprentice very professional and nice. The water heater is not working properly. Does not heat up water as it should. I can run hot water in my hand and it would not burn. No cold water on. Cannot take a shower too cold. Can't wash dishes. Water too cold. Get unhappyhsd guests last nite no one could shower. My old tank heated the water much faster and hotter. Have a call into company. If Hester is defective I need it repaired or a new on. Very upset and frustrated. I paid 900 and it heats lukewarm. Have on next to very high setting. Please help me. I should have gone to Sears. Home Depot. That way would be better. Heater installed march 20 2017 thanks

He said he would be here at 9 & promptly at 9 our door bell rang! He started working and didn't stop until the job was done.He ran a gas and water line from the basement to a first floor laundry, connected the washer & dryer, and relocated a large cabinet from the laundry room to the kitchen. He did an excellent job and seems to take pride in his work. We highly recommend Matt and know who to call if we need anything else done.

After a week of calling plumbers to repair an emergency issue at my mother’s trailer, I connected with Scott. Within 30 minutes, he was at the property and identified the problem. In less than 24 hours from his initial visit, my disabled mother had water again. I would recommend Scott HIGHLY. He was professional, affordable and compassionate to our problem. Do not hesitate to hire him!

I found Jim's service by posting for some plumbing help on my community Facebook page. He returned my call promptly and came for estimate same day. He and his helper Chuck not only helped me with my hot water tank replacement, they also repaired my outside spigot and cleaned out my water lines. The following day my kitchen sink faucet became too clogged and they were there within an hour and helped replace that too. Very professional and extremely well priced. I now have him on speed dial for all my home fixit emergencies.

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.

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.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
