Action Air saved the day for us and didn't charge us an arm and a leg for it. We needed a new water heater immediately and had very limited space. They came and did the job that day and worked through the evening to make sure I had heat for my little one!

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.

Ed came by the restaurant and SAVED THE DAY. I met several plumbers and they all tried to sneak unfair amounts of money to fix my water heater. Ed came and educated and fixed the problem within 24 hours and saved me nightmares of losing tons of money. Ed is reliable, honest, and I'd refer him to anyone who needs some honest work done. Thank you Ed!

We hired Anthony to replace a leaky water heater. Anthony did an excellent job- he made sure that the work was done according to the latest plumbing codes, and his service charge was very reasonable. To top it all off, he was punctual and very friendly. We had a great experience with him. Whenever we will need a plumber, Anthony will be our only choice. I would recommend him to anyone for their plumbing problems.

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.

What a find! Matt was very professional and completed the work in good time. He changed out some old pipes installed a tankless water heater and removed our old water heater. His estimate was competitive and he did a few extra things—fixed a loose toilet handle, rehung a clothing bar that had come off the wall didn’t charge anymore. I’m definitely going to be a repeat customer. Thanks Matt!

He did a great job installing the water heater. However, we live in a condo and don’t own a water hose and he did not come with one so it took quite a few hours for him to empty out all the water. That was the reason we took 1 star off. Otherwise good work.

I definitely recommend Tom! We needed our indirect water heater/maker replaced. Tom showed up on time, was very professional, knowledgeable and simply polite and courteous. He supplied an unit we requested just a day before! During the work he was very neat and kept the work area clean. He billed us exactly as per the quote he gave us. (very reasonable/competitive price!!!) Will use him again for any plumbing project we may have in a future!

Edgar was responsive, and immediately sent me quote. He came by a day later to assess the job and came the next day as agreed to replace my water heater. He was really terrific! Installed an new, larger heater in a new location, removed the old unit, the basement was spotless when he left and I am really happy! Would definitely recommend him and hire him again.

We needed to replace our electrical water heater which had burned out during one the winter storms. We originally tried to hire someone else from the Thumbtack site but he came, spent the day and after many hours informed us that the replacement heater that we bought was not suitable and that he was not responsible to help us pick the correct one. He also ruined our kitchen floor. Then I called Tom at Samsons who's price quote was the same as the first guy and he was happy to review our specifications, select and order the proper heater, and came and installed as promised. He was very organized and clean. He ran into a problem because the original installation was done wrong but he stuck with it with patience and professionalism and all is now working.

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!

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.
