The space for a hotwater heater and water softner was extremely limited. Another plumber could not find products to fit. Allen did.

Had drain tile and sump pump project and needed to disconnect hot water heater and softener and reconnect after the drain tile project was done. Mike also replaced some old valves for the laundry sink. His work was excellent and very fairly priced. Mike is now my first choice for all plumbing needs. Highly recommend his services.

Gary saved the day! My water heater was leaking so I scheduled Gary for later in the week. But then it failed, and I had water all over the basement. Gary rescheduled other clients and fit me in immediately. THANK YOU GARY! You're the best.

Asked Joe for an estimate on a clogged bathroom sink drain, main drain maintenance clearing. We ended up reviewing other projects as well. Joe showed up on time, assessed the individual projects but also evaluated overall household use. Gave a thorough estimate on immediate projects as well as others (water heaters, laundry tub, etc). Joe gives an estimate per job not per hour. I asked him to clear bathroom drain on the spot and we scheduled main drain for next morning. Joe was on time, reasonable cost (higher than some, less than others), very thorough, very clean, responsive communicator and listener, trustworthy.

The plumbing company gave a fair price, and I have decided to hire them, Jim promptly returned my call, we chatted and he actually came out on the way home. He wanted to make sure there was not a major problem with water heater. There was some loose pipes which he fixed, also checked the burner on the water heater, cleaned some Cat hair out of the burner area. He also checked the water meter area for possible problems. I was very comfortable with his expertise and was well worth the money. I would hire ESP again, Fast service..

Harry was very informative and answered all questions. Our water system is set up perfectly and he went above and beyond by hauling our salt to the tank and filling it up. If we have any questions or concerns he is available to address them. Thanks Harry. We would definitely use Paramount Plumbing again.

Over the past year, we have used Airtech Heating & cooling for 3 projects in our home (water heater, cleanings, and new boiler). In all cases, the call staff, technicians; Andrew, Mike, Joe, sales; Bill. and installers; Randy and Doug were, all outstanding professionally, knowledgable, straight forward, and neat during installations. Additionally we checked Angie's List, and BBB for reviews and references- all giving solid and strong ratings, of which we agree.

Replaced our old hot water heater with new - he was on time, careful about the light-colored carpet in our basement, fast, efficient, and he beat what Centerpoint Energy charges for the identical heater/installation by $300. We would hire again in a heartbeat!

Zach came over to my house to install a water powered sump pump back up. He was very professional and courteous. It only took him an hour to do all of the work, and now I will never have to worry about my basement flooding when the power goes out. I couldn't be any happier with his work.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
