The village plumber

The Village Plumber did a fantastic job installing a new water heater. They were very responsive to my questions and considerate with scheduling. The value was unbeatable and I feel that the pricing was very fair, finally someone who is not trying to take advantage of the customer and understands the struggle of every-day homeowners! They worked very quickly. Only took about an hour to drain, install, and remove my old tank. They were very clean, laid down protective coverings over my floor and cleaned up their mess after the job was finished! Most of all I appreciate them working with my home warranty company (as many other plumbers decided it was too much of a hassle for them to make a phone call). I am very satisfied and would highly recommend them for any plumbing job you have! You won’t regret it!

Affordable Cooling Furnace Repair Plumbing

Stephen was amazing. After discussing my heating concerns in my home, he was able to diagnose my problem and give me a reasonable price for the work over the phone. He arrived early and completed the work in less than an hour. Additionally, he was able to give my wife recommendations on future jobs. I would truly recommended and use Affordable Cooling Furnace Repair services again. Thank you.

The Plumbing Tree, LLC

We were having a problem with (hot) water pressure and I "assumed" it had something to do with the 25+ year old water heater we had. It was still heating water sufficiently but the pressure was dwindling. Initially I contacted plumbers near me, but after feeling as though I was "inconveniencing" them with my "minor" problem (they said my 3 year old shower faucet was to blame) I turned to Thumbtack. Bryan Ody with The Plumbing Tree was not only quick to respond, but was persistent with offering to help! Bryan again not only came out right away, but alerted us to other problems we had! He gave us a very reasonable quote to remedy all the issues AND was back within a day to fix them all!! I can not speak higher of a company than The Plumbing Tree!! Thank you again!!! 😊

I needed a water heater replaced. I received a call prior to arrival, work area was left clean, old heater was removed to curb, final cost was close to the estimate. I was very pleased with the level of service.

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.

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.

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.
