Hi my name is Jennifer, my husband & I live in a 2 story house in the Bronx. We used Joseph's services for plumbing issues we were having. Our bathroom sink was leaking water & our hot water was not working. We had Joseph come over to checkout the problem & he was very understanding about the severity of our situation. We have two kids so we needed our sink & especially our hot water working asap. Joseph was able to figure out the problem quickly. After he figured out that there was a cracked pipe under the sink & a faulty thermocouple in our hot water heater, he explained to us the procedure necessary. He sounded very familiar with these type of situations. He told us he runs into these problems quite often. My husband and I felt confident in giving him the job. Joseph was very pleasant, professional & very considerate of our property, he made sure that nothing got dirty or damaged. He even told a few silly jokes that had our children laughing. We would definitely recommend his services to others.

Edward was extremely courteous, prompt and professional. He fixed the water heater in my apt even though I was out of the country, meaning he had to correspond and work with my tenants in my absence. I wouldn't hesitate to hire Edward again.

William was outstanding in resolving the issue with my water heater and was cheaper than any other quote by far. He went out of his way to ensure that he could secure the correct parts, and he was able to remedy the issue quickly on the first visit. I definitely plan to continue to use William for any plumbing needs at any of my properties.

Herbert responded to my emergency effortlessly. I reached out to him about my hot water heater on Friday afternoon. Being it was the end of the week I didn’t think I would have gotten such a quick response, but I did. My water heater was replaced by Sunday. He came in replaced the heater, had it up & running. I was down for a minimal of 2 hrs. He did an AWESOME job. I’m very happy with the work he did & I think a friendship was born. He will be referred to anyone I know looking for a plumber. Thankful Herbert

I hired Darin after getting a rediculas estimate to replace a water heater from another handyman in my house. Darin installed a new water heater at almost half the cost of what the other guy wanted. I will definitely use him again.

Hired Gio to replace the leaking water heater. I have previously worked with Gio so I decided to work with him again. Gio is very professional and does things thoroughly. He not only replaced the water heater, but also checked for other leakage, flush the pipe, and cleaned the floor when the job was done. Highly recommend.

I couldn't get it down or up (the facecloth) I was expecting company within a few hours... upset couldn't describe how I felt... to make things worse every number I called to a plummer was unable to come within a reasonable time Until a neighbor recommended Honorable Plumbing! An answer to my prays! Henry the owner was so understanding! He was a professional! I would highly recommend Honorable Plumbing... Henry is putting in a hot water heater for me next! (among a few other things) Henry from Honorable Plumbing is my Plumber from now on and I would think of having anyone else!

I have had 6 companies come and look at my Hvac and water heaters. Airstream is the best company that I have worked with. They are honest and are reasonable in price. This was the best water heater and HVAC service ever!!!

Eddy is a nice man who offers quality work at an affordable rate. He can do a variety of things from heating, plumbing, HVAC, electrical and home contracting. He replaced a water heater that was leaking and also took out an old solar water heater tank as well. He came back another day and changed a whole house fan with wall switches and also changed a halogen light in the kitchen to an LED one. He stands by his work and tells you to call him if any issues and is available if an emergency happens. He is great for those small jobs you need done around the house but don't want to spend a fortune on. His assistant Rudy is also very professional and respectful. Thanks Eddy and Rudy!

Nationwide Plumbers did a great job on a recent issue at my home. I have a steam boiler with a small loop of hot water baseboard heat for the addition portion of our home. The small loop would not prime as I was getting my system up and running for the cool season. We just bought the house so it was our first time getting everything set up. Shawn from Nationwide Plumbers explained everything and provided plenty of helpful insight. He is willing to share his knowledge as he goes through the job. He came out on a Thursday evening around 8pm. He thought it was an easy fix (just a bad circulator pump), but it turned out it still would not prime. He then re-piped the entire set up in less than an hour. That is great if you have to pay someone by the hour. Even after that it would not prime. At this point it was midnight so he called it a day to do some research. The next day when I ran it, It actually primed right away. It could have been an air bubble or something preventing it, but Shawn returned on a Sunday evening to install some new valves to bleed it easier. All in all, he is a fair plumber with the knowledge to get jobs finished. He isn't the most expensive plumber, but he will not be the cheapest either. We will be using him again in the future. Highly recommended - Thanks !

I needed a plumber to service my tankless water heater so I decided to try "Thumbtack". Absolute Plumbing & Heating LLC responded to my request (in a matter of minutes). "David" corresponded with me to troubleshoot and eventually fixed my problem. My unit wasn't properly installed and needed servicing. I found a plumber I will recommend and use again!!!!! Awesome experience from start to finish!!!! Thank you David for responding and correcting my problem!!!!!

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.
