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

He did four little jobs around and outside the house from insulating an AC pipe to caulking the granite back-splash in the kitchen, repairing a faucet and resetting a loose ceramic tile on a stairway. He was on time and did a great job on everything. Seems to enjoy what he does and wants to do the best job possible. I highly recommend Mike.

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.

Daily Heating and Air Conditioning did a FABULOUS job installing my new air conditioner, furnace and water heater. They completed the work in one day and arrived on time as planned. They are extremely professional and I felt that they were the team that really new how to install a furnace and what obstacles they might encounter. I would HIGHLY recommend this dynamic team to take care of anyone's heating and cooling needs. They are the BEST!

I was having and issue with my hot water tank and I heard great things from a friend about CMC. So I decided to give them a call, they were so nice and professional on the phone and they sent someone right over! Dan was awesome, he did not give me a run around and told me just what I needed to fix it. I will definitely be calling them again!

I had a great experience with Nick. My water heater went out on a Friday morning, I called to see how soon he could replace and it was replaced that afternoon. In addition to that, we’ve had other plumbing work completed and always experience professional and reliable service. I would recommend his work to anyone including my close family and friends.

Ian was absolutely professional and courteous, and I am very thankful that I found him to install a new hot water heater for my home. He provided a fair price, with manufacturer and labor warranties, took care of the install and disposal of my old unit successfully. No muss, no fuss. Ian also looked at my furnace/AC unit while he was doing the install as there were some issues there. He gave me an honest recommendation and helped me understand the level of urgency that the issue needed to be addressed in. As a single mom, raising 3 sons, value is important. Equally,trust is important, I am pleased with the work that Ian provided and would recommend him to anyone looking for the same type of service.

    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.
