Cody and Tony did an excellent job installing my new water heater and making sure that everything was up to code. The difference between my old hot water heater and my new unit is like night and day. I was really impressed with the workmanship of the installation process and the performance of my new water heater. Morris-Jenkins is the Gold Standard when it comes to HVAC and Plumbing. Morris-Jenkins installed both my furnaces and air conditioning systems and they all run smoothly. When ever I need service they are on time every time. I really appreciated the suggestions and advice I received from Bryant Starnes, and would highly recommend Morris-Jenkins to any homeowner or business owner.

Nick is a very personal guy with a lot of experience and creativity. We hired him to drywall our garage and build shelving for storage. BJ did the work. It was very well done. He is very meticulous and left the work area clean and organized at the end of each day. He encouraged us to enclose the water heater area which did increase the estimated labor and materials. We are very happy with the job and I recommend Nick Gillaspie.

Power Plumbing arrived on time, changed my water heater, cleaned up any mess they made, and now I have a working water heater. The price was reasonable too. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a plumber.

Israel has been prompt and very courteous, he even offered to loan us heaters until he was able to get the part that would fix my broken furnace. (We did already have some space heaters, thank goodness) The pricing was fair and we plan to sign up for his yearly maintenance plan. I would highly recommend Israel with Air

John (and Rachel) worked tirelessly to replace our rusted out outdoor water heater with a new tankless unit. John was thorough in his estimate. He made sure we contacted the utility company to properly size our gas meter and coordinated on the installation, popping in the regulators for us. He offered recommendations on the brand and sizing of the new unit. We've been really pleased with the result.

Rapp's HVAC and plumbing installed 2 new furnaces, 2 HVACs, new plumbing and a tank less water system. You judge a successful business by your last happy customer. Well I'd say your business is successful because of the employees you put on the front line. Aaron Knight is extremely professional, honest, genuine and thorough. He demonstrates a work ethic above others and I've shown my appreciation by forwarding him at least 4 referrals already since our completed job which have turned into signed contracts. I can't say enough how appreciative we are of Rapp's employees and especially Aaron Knight. Thank you and I look forward to working and giving you referrals for years to come.

Our water heater burst last week while we took the kids to Carowinds. The water dripped all the way through the ceiling from upstairs. Insurance came out to asses the damage. For the plumbing issues they recommended Ben Franklin to me. I called them and they were able to come out that day and look at the issue. I had a new water heater installed the next day!

I couldn't say enough about how happy I am with Hinson Brothers and the work they did for me. They replaced my 15 year old tank water heater (gas) to a new tank water heater (gas) with expansion tank next day. Only took a couple of hours. Very professional staff. Great communication and explanation of things and options. Took less than $1000 to replace my current water heater, add components that would bring my water heater up to code (expansion tank etc.) and remove my old water heater. Thanks again!

Jonathan removed and installed a new water heater for us including bringing us up to code standards. We shopped around for a while before deciding on Jonathan. He provided a fair price for his services and not only made sure work was done correctly but also walked us through exactly what he was going to do, why it’s important and necessary, and treated us with the upmost respect. I would recommend Done Right to a friend with plumbing or handyman needs.

Chris did an excellent job at fixing my water heater. He was very knowledgeable, thorough, and did the job for a very reasonable fee. I can tell that he deeply cares about his customers and is very reliable. I was so pleased with this experience that I also hired Chris to come out next weekend to touch up my kitchen and bathroom cabinets and work on other things around the house. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
