I called Todd and he was very courteous and knowledgeable about my water heater replacement needs. He promptly came to my house, checked out the problem, went out and picked up the new gas water heater and all the necessary components to replace my water heater. He was prompt, friendly, efficient, and did the work in a very timely and cost effective way. I would highly recommend Todd to anyone who needs his services. He performed the work as if it were his own home. Outstanding job Todd, thanks!

Mr. Rooter sent out a technician promptly, and it was determined I needed a new water heater. The technician removed the old water heater, left and returned with a new heater and installed it within 3 hours. The cost was reasonable and the service was exceptional. I purchased a "membership" which gave me a discount equal to the cost of the membership. The membership included future discounts on service, equipment and yearly water heater maintenance.

Leroy was very accommodating and responsive. Not only did he take care of the water heater replacement, he also took the time to address other plumbing concerns I had in the house and also got those fixed since he had the parts on his van. He also educated me on maintenance of the water heater and also gave recommendations regarding my other plumbing concerns factoring in my perspective and plans for the house in the near-term. I highly recommend Leroy -- great service, knowledgeable, and also informative! Leroy rocks!

Mike was excellent. Honest about what did and didn't need repair, did a couple odd jobs in addition to the water heater replacement. Already referred him to my family for a job they need.

Tim and his crew have now completed 2 jobs for us at our property. The first was to finish installing vinyl shutters and do extensive plaster work on the ceiling of our garage where there was water damage. The second was to do a number of smaller projects related to dog and use damage, from replacing a window sill and baseboards, to installing new wood floor transitions, grout repair and recaulking a shower upstairs. Without exception all of this work was completed to the letter of what we had asked. It was also done in a much quicker manner and more professional manner than my wife or I could have accomplished. Tim was also very responsive with both e-mail and phone communication, and the price was also fantastic. I would highly recommend them for any project you might have as we've been very happy with them on both of our projects.

Joseph did a great job repairing our kitchen plumbing. He redid the piping to fix a big leak, replaced the garbage disposal, and replaced the faucet fixtures. It looks great and what a difference it makes to have clean plumbing that doesn't leak all over the kitchen. Joseph is kind, professional, and fairly priced. Thank you Golden Rule!

George certainly emphasizes customer service. From the beginning, he answered all of my questions and was very helpful with suggestions concerning the best method of repair. He replaced a gas control valve on my water heater but also resolved some additional issues, ensuring its proper operation. His vast level of experience is obvious. You cannot go wrong if you select this individual for your service needs.

We were moving into a house knowing there was an existing hot water pressure problem to be fixed and a speculative quote from Lloyd. Lloyd quickly found a nickel in the incoming line to the water heater and saved us money in the process. In the future, we will definitely be calling Lloyd first and referring him to everyone!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
