Yes, I hired Gary thru Thumbtack. He quoted me a price, and came by first to look over the old water heater and the new one he would be installing. Was thorough in his review of the 30 year old water heater before concluding he would be able to do the work. Showed up the next day on time and completed the project in a timely fashion and left the laundry room clean and tidy where the water heater was located. I'm referring him to a friend on account of his wide knowledge of all kinds of repair work, as well as the excellent job he did at the house here. See you again, Gary, for other projects! And thank you, thank you, thank you!!

We had a new heating system put in as well as a tankless hot water heater. They also upgraded our electrical panel and put in an electric baseboard in our foyer. The guys were punctual, extremely professional and knowledgeable. I recently had an extremely experienced contactor come through for an unrelated project and he said the work that Three Brothers did was some of the best that he had seen in years. I am more than pleased with the outcome! Highly recommend!

Been burned before... Hemorrhaged money by making the wrong choices on reno projects... It is good I found someone to reduce the risk of that ever happening again. It is a great feeling having a general contractor you can trust to hire the best people when doing a renovation. The work he has done in my kitchen, including the entire kitchen install, is a reflection of who he is and what he values. The oak floor was done so perfectly that people gasp when they see it when they walk in the kitchen. It was a furniture grade job. Most importantly is I return to Paschal when I need something done. That for me shows I really trust him to do right by me. I would be happy to give a reference to anyone considering hiring him.

I am a remodeling contractor assigned to bringing a vacant 2 story house up to building code on the North Shore. The property had been abandoned before winter and caused severe water damage from frozen pipes. Several radiators, hidden pipes in the walls, water heater and heating system were all destroyed. Christopher was very patient and methodical in presenting a workable plan. And his price was quit reasonable. I deal with many trades people and Christopher is without hesitation now on my "A" list.

Galeforce remodeled our main bathroom -put in a new bathtub/shower, vanity, & toilet as well as tiling the vanity area and floor. Their work was perfection - we love our new bathroom! If we had met them earlier - we would have saved time and money on other projects. Vinnie instinctively knows what the cause of a problem is. Our basement had a water leak which was causing a mold issue and he knew right where to look. Years ago a nail had punctured a sewer pipe. He fixed it, replaced the molded wood, and replaced & patched the drywall. We couldn't be happier and would recommend Galeforce to anyone one looking for excellent work, honesty, fair prices, and that step above the rest!

Martin is amazing. He replumbed our entire house during a renovation. He was up to date on the new tech, would explain everything he was doing and met the deadlines so we could move back in. On top of this, he also helped my mom with her water heater on short notice!

Jason and his helper were superb!! Very professional, answered every question I had about repairing a pipe in the attic which was dripping water into a room below. Water was caused by condensation from the whole house air conditioner. He also unclogged 2 very stubborn bathtub drains. Nothing I tried would budge the clog. Extremely pleased with all that was done. Jason even showed me and answered questions I had about other problems in the house, unrelated to the job he was here to do. I will definately hire him again when and if, the need arises.

Our hot water heater stopped working and Albin quickly got back to us. We got a great rate (as good of a price as you can given how expensive these things are!) he suggest a tankless water heater instead and we are SO happy he did. No complaints on our end!

I asked Jason to replace a kitchen faucet, fix a broken garbage disposal, and a water hammer happening in the pipes to my washing machine. He gave me a fair price on the faucet, showed me that my disposal wasn't actually broken (just needed to be reset) and offered to fix the washing machine pipe for free because it was a quick job. He came out early in the morning to accommodate my schedule and did a great job on the faucet installation. I would definitely hire him again.

Mike with Heat Rite has been doing my heating systems for over 12 years. He has done hundreds of homes for me since 2002. I find him to be a very professional heating system installer. He has a great knowledge in multiple different heating systems including forced hot and cold air and forced hot water with radiant, panel radiators and standard base board systems. These heating systems vary with different fuel sources such as propane, natural gas, oil and GEO thermal. He is professional and pays attention to details. On many occasion I have directed my clients to talk directly with him to figure out there heating system needs. He has always warranted his work and stood behind it. I would recommend him to any one looking to install new, replace or repair there heating system. He will work with you to figure out what you need for a heating system.

Steve was out to do an estimate within and hour, work was started promptly at 9am the next day and was done quickly, efficiently and professionally. Make sure your plumber pulls the permits when replacing a gas water heater. I didn't know we needed to, but Steve took care of it!

I feel fortunate to have been referred to Advanced Plumbing when my water tank burst. Keith is everything you want in a plumber but never expect to get. Professional, skilled, timely, and priced fairly. Aside from saving my butt in emergencies, I hired Keith to install a natural gas heater in my garage. Five stars. Call them and see for yourself.

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.

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.

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 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.
