When our house was built, the electrical outlet for our dryer wasn't installed properly or securely causing the drywall around it to collapse. Jose knew exactly what was wrong and how to fix it before arriving. He went out of his way to fit me in his schedule and fixed it the same day. He is very knowledgeable and I would definitely hire him again for future projects. His work is impeccable and the laundry room drywall looks better than when we bought the house. Thank you Jose.

Morris Jenkins has always provided excellent service. I had a service call schedule and due to severe weather chose to cancel it because I wanted the service tech to be safe. I called and they scheduled me for the next day. Chris Stapleton came out and checked out my HVAC and water heater. He was professional and thorough and explained what repairs were needed. I didn't feel pressured to have all repairs completed.

Drew did an awesome job of installing my new water heater and whole home water filtration system. While I didn't get the original system he quoted me that I asked for, his incredible work on what I settled for looks and functions great. I wouldn't think off hiring another plumber. When you find someone this good, you stick with them.

We had a water leak in an upstairs bathroom, and the restoration company had to cut some tiles in the batchroom, and 2 large holes (1 ft X 2 ft) in the ceiling below. We hired Greg to patch the tiles and the ceiling, and he did a great job, and at a very reasonable cost. Would definitely hire again.

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.

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.

Josh and his team have been amazing to work with (so far). They have completed so many of our 'to-dos' around our house including installation of LED can lighting, sink installation, adding additional outlets and they will soon start the big project working outside. They have been consistent with follow-ups and have provided the best prices around! I would HIGHLY recommend Josh and his team for any projects :)

My water heater was leaking and causing damage to my ceiling. Superior Plumbing came out that night and not only fixed my leak but was very reasonable in price. The technician put plastic down to protect my floors while removing a rusty old water heater from my attic. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to all my friends and family.

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.
