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

Steve and Scott installed as A/C, furnace and water heater. They did an excellent job and I am very pleased with the work they did. They were much better priced than the big companies and were a pleasure to work with.

I had a small wiring job - from the breaker box to a new 240v garage heater. Gregg came to do an estimate - and shortly later the job was done! Recommended.

Buying an older home, we knew we would have problems. Good thing we know a fair priced and propmt plumber, Jon. We have had him in our home for several projects. Including hot water heater, garbage disposal and irrigation system pump. He does great work, his prices are fair and he always puts every customer first like you are his only customer!

Fred's installed a new water heater for me. They always answered my emails with questions promptly. My appointment for install was on time and final price matched the estimate I was given. I would definitely use again.

I noticed frozen water on the curb in front of house on a Friday morning, called John Schmitz, he and his crew came out to assess the problem and fixed the water line the same day. They contacted the city inspector, he approved their work, we had very little down time without water. They did a great job inside our home with very little demolition to our basement floor, they had to cut some tile out, remove some cement, they replaced all that so looks like it did before the leak, very conscientious of our living space, very clean repair, no mess. The outdoor area, he filled the two holes in our yard, then came back the next day to add more fill (settling). All this done very quickly,and very professionally on a January winter day. I would highly recommend John Schmitz to anyone that needs water main repair/replacement.

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.
