I called NWT first thing in the morning on the 6th of Sept. Not only was our hot water out so was the power that day. Nick answered the phone and after letting him know the problem said he could come that day after noon. He and his apprentice fix the water heater in about 20 minutes. His charge was reasonable and he is very pleasant young man. Will keep his number for future work. Thanks for the lead. Karen

Steve installed a hot water recirculation pump to our water heater and we now no longer have to wait a few minutes for hot water. In fact, it's practically instantaneous! Only one minor issue with one faucet that I could live with but have to see if the wife can also.

My daughter's hot water heater was beyond repair. She lives in mid-town Detroit. I put this request out on Thumbtack and Tony responded in less than 5 minutes. He was in the middle of another job but responded promptly...answered my questions...spoke with my daughter. Gave a very fair price...arrived at her home at stated time...assessed the situation...went to purchase and pick up water heater. He and his partner completed the job and hauled away the hold one. Prompt and professional...definitely would recommend. From contact to completion 6 hours...great job! Thank you.

Gary did an awesome job installing our furnace and hot water heater. He was on time and his prices were the best we found. He gave us additional information about things to think about and we will be calling him again to install our central air unit.

I am a first time thumbtack user and will be a repeat user. I made a request for a plumber to contact me regarding frozen pipes in a crawl space...house has boiler baseboard heating, so as you can imagine this meant no heat or water until it was thawed. I used a torpedo heater in the crawl to thaw the plumbing out and ended up with a muddy river in the crawl. Robert Burns was the 1st person to respond with a very reasonable rate which I knew would probably be adjusted after seeing the job. Mr. Burns responded in a timely manner and was more than fair on the quote to pump out over a foot of water out of about a 600 sq ft crawlspace and then go down and make repairs to burst pipes in a cold, wet and muddy crawlspace. The job turned out to be more than we expected, as when we got the plumbing going we still had to contend with the boiler, but he stayed at it until he got it up and running and had our water and heat back on. I completely agree with the other reviews in that he is a very hard worker and you more than get your moneys worth...not very many would do this and if they did they would charge an arm and a leg. Thank you Robert for the hard work.

I actually had George bid a paint job. But ended up using him for multiple things.... installed a water heater, called in a pinch for a furnace repair! Of all the contractors I've hired he was the easiest and most accommodating to work with. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Best part was my husband and I both trusted him and he was extremely fair with his price. Will definitely use him again and again! Kym C

Jeff came out quickly to install my new water heater. After he left the unit stopped working, he came back that evening and got everything up and running in no time. I always worry what kind of service you will get after you pay the contractor, this was not an issue with Jeff. He showed the same urgency to get it done right at no extra charge. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.
