Randy's Appliance did a fantastic job on our water heater, were quick to respond to schedule the work, and shared a number of pictures that showed the results of the work (we had our water heater drained to remove sediment, etc). I would highly recommend them, based on our experience, and will hire them again for this kind of work.

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.

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.

Had a need to repair a kitchen faucet. The leaking caused our sink to be out of order. Gary responded the same day. He found the issue quickly. He also checked out a re-occurring issue with our commode. It just needed to be adjusted. Very professional and knowledgeable. I recommend Gary to anyone needing service.

Xai arrived in the window he said he would. His price was the best I found. He did a great job installing the faucet. He is very personable, helpful, and professional. I will definitely use him again if I need electrical or plumbing work.

Received various bids and selected Action Plumbing due to price and their availability to do the water heater replacement asap They also had knowledge of what was required to get my installation up to current codes and discussed what was needed and their bid included everything. The big box stores all needed days just to provide a bid. Action provided their bid within minutes, then arrived on site, on time, to confirm a replacement was really required vs. just a simple fix. All work was completed within a few hours. They hauled the old water heater away and the garage was spotless when they left. No need to wait for a big box store contractor when Action did it the same day I called and with a competitive price too... perfect. Hope all my future contractor hires go as smooth as this one did. Thanks Thumtack for hooking me up with Action Plumbing! You saved me money and the hassles of dealing with 3rd party contractors and helps us avoid many days of a leaking water heater.

Hired Israel to clean my dryer vent. He and his team did an excellent job, on top of just the cleaning he's also moved my dryer pipe from the back to the side, which helped push dryer all the way to the wall. All necessary pipe repairs were also done well. I've additionally contracted Israel for a yearly HVAC / furnace maintenance, as he was offering very competitive pricing as compared to, for example, Homedepot. Israel helped replace all our temperature controllers (which we've bought ourselves through Amazon). Overall, definitely a good experience and highly recommended.

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.

Billy and his team at Rapp's helped us get our newly purchased building up to code. With a laundry list of issues, from plumbing to electrical, they tackled everything in a very short amount of time and at a price far better than anyone else we quoted. We now use Rapp's for everything that we can. Great value and service!

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!

I’ve used 4 D’s plumbing for both my rental house and my primary residence. My renter told me I needed to replace my kitchen faucet and sink due to leaks. Ed was able to go over in diagnose the problem for me. He solved the problem without replacing either of them- saving me the cost of replacement. He also brought my hot water heater up to code by installing an expansion tank when he replaced the old hot water heater. For my primary residence he installed new waterlines, new waste lines, faucets and and a shower head in my bathroom, and a macerator tank for my renovation. He also discovered and fixed an issue with my tankless hot water heater that another plumber installed. He’s my ‘go to’ guy for plumbing. I’ve given his contact info to anyone I know who’s looking for a GOOD plumber! Hardworking and very knowledgeable guy- I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

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.

We had a water heater go out on a Saturday night at 6:30; finding a professional willing to come out that late on a Saturday was a challenge. After trying several companies we finally found Pipeline Plumbing Systems. The young man who came out was Aaron, and after only a few minutes he had our water turned off and was able to replace the water heater the same night! He also had recommendations for companies who he frequently used for water clean up. That's service! I hope that we don't need any plumbing work done anytime soon; but when and if we do, we will be calling Aaron to do it.

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.

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.
