The drain under our washing machine was clogged, sending any water from the kitchen sink all over the basement bathroom. Christopher solved the problem quickly, expertly, and with the best attitude we've ever encountered! We'll never hire anyone else, so long as he is in business.

We were in desperate need of a good air duct cleaning. West Michigan Air Duct cleaned 12 vents and 1 dryer vent for a very reasonable price. The two men that came were very friendly. They took time to explain the process, were quick and efficient, and cleaned up after themselves. I would not hesitate to hire them again.

Tobie came out ASAP and installed a new furnace for me and I had heat up and running in no time .. :) He was very polite, did the job for what he quoted, came out sooner than I thought possible, and completed without leaving a mess. Would certainly hire him again at this point. I have not contacted him as of yet to have it inspected yet though due to my time constraint but will soon.

Matt has done a variety of jobs for my family home in Kalamazoo over the years. Finding him about six years ago has been one of the best things that's happened to us in Kalamazoo. He seems to be able to do anything, and he does it in such good spirits that we're sorry when he leaves. The variety of things he has done is huge, and he has often responded on short notice, and been willing to at least come and look at something ASAP. He fixed a problem with our bathtub faucet which had been botched by two professional plumbers, and then declared "impossible" by a third. It took him five minutes, and he needed no new parts... he just fixed the part that was bad! Amazing. Other things he has done around our house include: rebuilding the basement stairs (on an emergency basis), repairing and painting 4 large columns on the front of our home, installing grab bars for our mother, inserting a light switch to the electrical circuit in the kitchen pantry, repairing our telephone wires, trimming our hedges and cutting down a couple of trees, and most recently installing new flooring in our bathroom which included replacing the shutoff valve and supply line and putting all new parts in the toilet. He shows up on time, he works to budget, and he smiles a lot. I have recommended Matt for several friends, and I recommend him to you without any reservations whatsoever. I just ask you not to keep him TOO busy so that he's available for us too!

    My husband and I could never have survived a major remodeling project had we not had Richard's help. We had a major flood in our house last winter causing damage to drywall, molding, flooring and much more. Richard helped us with the plumbing, electrical needs, hanging and plastering drywall, and making molding to match the rest of our 25 year+ home. No matter how big or how small, Richard solved each problem and completed the work with excellent craftsmanship. He made our remodeling fun, affordable, and secure. Ask Richard to share our "before" and "after" pictures with you. It is an amazing job. Thank you so much Richard!

    Tim came over and hung two toilets, took out a mess of old water softener pipes underneath my kitchen sink, put in a new kitchen faucet, and prepared new bathroom sink with a new faucet. He was wonderful. Professional, plus we already scheduled him to come back to do some more work. If you need a plumber you would be hard pressed to find a better one. Thanks Tim see you soon

      Thanks so much to All Area Plumbing. They were prompt and professional and honest. In addition to some plumbing issues I also needed some advice on a new kitchen sink. Matt made a great (affordable) recommendation. We are so happy with both the service and the sink they helped pick out and installed for us.

      Dan installed interior French doors for us. They had to be custom-sized. They look beautiful. The job was done on time; the clean-up was thorough. There was follow-up to ensure all was as we had requested. I would highly recommend Handy Dan Renovations.

      Missed appointment. We would have appreciated an earlier phone call. However, Don came the following night and completed the installation of a bathroom sink/vanity. He did a good job and was professional. We would hire him again for plumbing needs.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        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.

        Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

        If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

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

        Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.

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

        Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.
