Steve came out and replaced my water heater even when it required some extra work. He even came out on a Sunday and stayed till it was done. Was happy with his work and his pricing. Felt comfortable having him work in my home with me and my small child. Would hire again for other handyman jobs!

Hired him to add a new 220 circuit for a water heater. He responded quickly and showed up the next day for a quote. Price was reasonable, so he came back the next day and did the work. He was friendly and very helpful. The quality of the work looks good as well. The new line is properly placed and ready for the water heater. Would definitely hire him again.

Robert happened to be servicing my furnace during an inspection from the gas company. He on the spot took on the larger job of getting my older home up to code by redirecting ductwork, venting a water heater, and capping a gas line. Robert was in and out quickly, knowledgeable, fair priced, and his ductwork is neat as a pin.

My seemingly endless tankless hot water heater problems were over in a short amount of time with Donovan. He came when I needed him with consideration for my plight, optimistically and efficiently got us back in working order. Donovan Day earned a resounding recommendation.

Jim provided excellent service at a very fair price. He dealt with a black iron gas line and 3/4 inch copper water lines when installing a hot water heater. All of the work was well done and handled efficiently. I know exactly whom to call when I need plumbing work!

When someone tells you that you have to spend $2000 for a new hot water heater, just ask them to leave. Call Calvert to learn about all your options. Yes you have options!

We were trying to get our house ready to sell and the air conditioner died. And since we knew our furnace was old and probably next, we decided to replace them both. What started out as a highly stresssful incident, turned out to be a really positive experience, thanks to the efforts of the team at R MECH Heating Plumbing and Cooling. Mike came out for an estimate and we really enjoyed talking with him. The rates were amazing and the no pressure attitude was refreshing. Most of all, the contract terms were above and beyond what we expected. Financing was arranged and workmen showed up on the appointed day. Everyone was courteous and efficient and when they left, we had a shiny, new ac and furnace, all within 4 days of first contact. We could tell a huge diifference right away with our new Lennox appliances. We would highly recommend R MECH Heating Cooling and Plumbing. This company is amazing. If you're looking for a company that genuinely strives to provide the best experience possible for the customer, then this is the company to go with.

This guy is awesome! He was one of the first to respond to my job on Thumbtack. Came out on a Saturday and diagnosed our problem with our water heater and quoted us a great price. Initially he wasn't going to be able to install until Monday. Received a surprise call on Sunday and he came out Sunday evening to install our new water heater. He above and beyond to help fix our problem. I would recommend him to everyone!

    When we woke up to cold showers, we called Superior Plumbing and Gas. They quickly worked me in, and before the day was done, we had a new hot water heater. Caleb showed us how the tank had burst, with it's shape bulging out on the bottom of the tank! He was very courteous, informative, and honest. We have called Superior repeately and have always been delighted with his work ethic and prices. If you want a plumber you can trust every time call Superior Plumbing and Gas.

    I woke up this morning to a leaking hot water tank. Wanted to shop local, so I called Polestar. Danny was at my house before 8:00, assessed the problem and started the repairs. I had a great experience with Polestar. They assisted with bringing a couple other items around the water tank up to current code Great job Danny and Mike. The guys were very professional and explained everything I needed to know about my new water heater. Next plumbing issue will be resolved with Polestar.

      My house had these long and twisting runs of soft copper suppling the gas to our hot water heater, dryer and stove. I hired Jeff's Plumbing to replace it all in black iron pipe, like it should be. Nice job guys. It's perfect, I don't have to worry, my home is much safer now and up to code, in case I ever want to sell it. Big job, great price, very happy.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
