Terry Kennedy was excellent and I cannot recommend him enough for any plumbing repairs or upgrades. I hired him to replace a leaking tanked water heater with a tankless unit. Terry helped me select the proper model and all of the hardware needed for the installation. From contact to completion, it took less than 24 hours to have my new water heater installed and verified to be operating completely. Terry took the guesswork out of this process and was simply amazing with his technical skills, knowledge and willingness to help. I'd give him 10 stars but you only gave me 5 to rate him with!

Shawn was great. He quoted a price for his service and completed the job in a timely manner. He even picked up the water heater from HomeDepot for us.

Barry installed in my water heater in my basement. He built a stand to keep it off the floor Incase the basement floods again. He worked very hard and did a lot of things that we didn’t know also needed to be done in order to install my water heater. He is definitely our plumber from now on when I need one in the future.

Chuck came to my home for routine water heater repair. He arrived early and went straight to work. He brought along his son whom he was training. In no time, the water heater was repaired. He also alerted me to a potentially dangerous situation involving my furnace vent. I was completely unaware. Thanks to Chuck's knowledge and honesty, we will be safe this winter. Highly recommend Chuck. Will definitely call him for my next repair.

I received a quote on the service he'd provide through my email Wednesday morning at 7:30am, I called him at around 8am and talked to him about what we already did for the last 3 days trying to get our hot water heater to heat water, which was everything! He said he could be here by 9 the same morning and was early, which was awesome! He told my husband that we hooked everything up correctly, but my husband was told to leave the heat pressure valve closed when filling. That was bad bad advice! You're supposed to open it until it's filled. This is our first time dyi on a water heater...we didn't know. Well it blew out the top heating element again. Who would've thought! A service fee and 1 hourly rate later, we had it fixed! Awesome and quick service. He didn't pull our legs and make like there was a lot of work to do to milk the money out of us. Honesty is hard to find in service providers like this. Saving his number for future needs!

Jerry Marcum did an outstanding job installing a new water heater on short notice. Our house is over 25 years old. Consequently he encounter a few unexpected issues. He took those in stride and resolved every problem while keeping us fully informed. He stayed longer than he expected (well after normal work hours), but did not leave until the job was done. He takes pride in his work which is obvious form the clean installation. He did not take short cuts just to get'er done and offered a very fair price. I would recommend his services to others.

Jamel, the owner of the company has been great to work with at my multiple units I own and operate in Covington, ky. I understand that property owners like the convenience of bigger hvac companies and we are afraid to take a risk with the smaller guys. However, by taking a risk and putting my trust in Jamel, it has saved me thousands of $$$. Highly recommend for any furnace, boiler, water heater, plumbing, etc maintenance and install.

Cory put in a new 50-gallon gas hot water heater into my rental property. It was a difficult situation that needed to be rerouted out through another wall in the house. I had other people give me estimates and they wanted to charge me an outrageous price. I think because I live in Florida they thought they would price gouge me. He came in looked at it gave me a good price. He did an impeccable job and really knows what he is doing. He was very professional, reliable, left the area clean and even picked up the water heater for me. Sent me pictures of the work, receipts, and invoice for work done. He is very trustworthy and I will definitely use him again for my future needs.

Morgan Plumbing, Jonathan Morgan, was very prompt in getting me his quote. We talked about the replacement of my hot water heater and he was very professional and courteous to my needs and time frame to complete the job. He explained the best, most efficient as well as cost efficient installation for my home. It was a very professional looking job. He removed the hot water heater and cleaned the whole area. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and call him for other future plumbing issues.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
