I requested someone to shut down the swamp cooler for the winter and set up the heater. Sun-Up Entps sent Adam. He arrived promptly at the appointed time and did a very efficient job on this. I would definitely use them again.

Cal picked up my hot water from Home Depot and arrived on time at my home. He competently installed the hot water heater and carried the old one away. All for an excellent price. He cleaned up after himself and was a gentleman from start to finish. Highly recommend!

I needed to get the house ready to put on the market. My "punch list" included painting throughout the house (including wall repairs in several places) baseboard painting (including replacement in two separate areas), sod installation with sprinkler repair, dryer vent cleaning, kitchen faucet replacement, patio light replacement, swamp cooler tubing repair, caulking, grout work and whatever else I found at the moment. These gentlemen were on time, cleaned up, and were extremely helpful. Their knowledge, skills and abilities went far beyond anyone else we interviewed. They were friendly, funny and more than anything put my mind at ease in terms of getting the house truly ready to pass inspections and for a quick sale. Thank you!

I noticed the hot water heater leaking on Sunday. Put a request on Thumbtack. Ruben responded right away with a quote and a time. He showed up at 9:30 the next morning and he was done by 1 pm. His work was excellent. He had to add a valve and cut a hole in the wall that wasn't in the original quote but only charged for the price of valve. I have used 4 plumbers in the last few years and Total Plumbing is the one I will call back. The A O Smith water heater he install is not from a big box store, it is the ProLine commercial grade.

I was looking for a quote to install a new tankless water heater. Jesse was very prompt in communicating and even offered to visit my house and provide the estimate on Saturday. However, my plans changed and I don't need a new water heater. I will definitely consider hiring Jesse in the future!

Jonathan is terrific! Over the past decade, he has been the go-to guy for all my home repairs in Santa Fe. He did a beautiful job acquiring and installing custom windows and doors for my historic home. He has maintained the gas heaters and and chimneys, repaired exterior stucco, replaced plumbing fixtures, and countless other jobs. He is prompt, responsible and reasonable. From routine maintenance to more detailed projects, you can count on him. I recommend him highly.

AMI replaced my 32 year-old water heater and rusted furnace, and added A/C. Daniel Banker personally visited the site five times during installation and worked with me to make decisions such as sizing and placement. He installed quality equipment and upgrades. His proposals were itemized with detailed descriptions so that I could compare estimates and options from different vendors. And to top it all off, his bottom line was significantly less!

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.
