I live out of the state and my mom lives by herself. One day around early afternoon last week she called me in a panic mood and told me her water heater tank was leaking badly and her entire first floor was flooded. An old lady, who has no knowledge of anything about water heater tank, live by herself; no matter which way I looked at this situation, I heard cha-ching, cha-ching! I went on Thumbtack right away as I had some good experience with Thumbtack recently for my own place. Tony responded in about 10 mins, and after reading the reviews, I contacted him immediately. His schedule was full that day. Despite I told him we probably can wait until the next day, he told me if we were ok, he would be there around 8:00PM same day as gas water heater leaking is dangerous. Tony showed up later than 8, but I think it's understandable as he was far. After checking out the leak, he told my mom the water tank needed to be replaced, and he could be there next day same time. I confirmed with my mom, she said she saw where was leaking and a replacement was a good option. Tony went out and bought my mom a new tank next day, and then went back to install it for her at a very, very reasonable price. There was a little miscommunication which is understandable as my mom doesn't speak English as the first language, and they two settled that issue. Overall, both mom and I are very satisfied with Tony's work.

I was very lucky to have found Marty on Thumbtack. He was a local professional who identified a tough problem with my water heater, and solved the problem though a series of troubleshooting techniques. He did not throw up his hands at the problem and stayed in close communication with me to finally correct the problem. Highly recommended.

Pete came in found the problem, fixed it, triple checked and it was done. Cost efficient service with professional who are experts at what they do. The name Solution based fits them well. Thank you so much guys!

I needed a water heater replacement and called Benny at Subzero because of his positive reviews. He completed the work yesterday and I would recommend Benny to my family and friends who have plumbing needs. He always responded to my calls in a timely manner and was flexible in scheduling my water heater replacement. Benny and his son did a great job with the removal of my old water heater and installation of the new one. They worked efficiently and carefully in the small closet space that houses the water heater. I couldn't give them a higher recommendation! By the way, Benny's price was the lowest of the three estimates that I solicited so I know I also got a great value using him and his son.

Murray responded to my request quickly and came out the next day to provide a quote. I appreciated that he did some diagnostics (took off the front panel, felt the pipes, etc). The other plumbers immediately told me I needed a new water heater without that assessment. He provided two options and when I decided to get a new water heater, he came out the next day and was able to find a larger one to provide me with more hot water. Also, he gave a 1 year warranty on the work done (which none of the other plumbers offered). He added an expansion tank with the installation to help preserve my pipes as well. Further, when I noticed a small leak in my kitchen sink, he took some time to look at it and gave me a quick fix/told me where to go for the part and how to fix it myself. Overall, I had a very positive experience and would use M Resnick Plumbing again.

Tyquan was very knowledgeable about water heaters and up front with everything that could be the cause of our problem with our water heater. His prices on all items and work completed were very reasonable. He fixed it without needing to replace the entire unit. I highly recommend Integrity Residential Maintenance LLC!!

Due to a previous hvac job that was done very poorly Matt faced a large job at my rental property. He had to reconfigure and install components of my central ac, furnace, and water heater. Matt came out and did the work timely and with utmost professionalism. I have already referred him to friends and family. Matt is extremely knowledgeable of his craft and does top quality work.

I had originally contacted Colton just a day before I desperately needed my hot water heater fixed! We had problems but were expecting company and needed it done quickly. Colton was extremely responsive with my phone calls and emails and arrived exactly when he said to make the repair. He is friendly and got what we needed done quickly, efficiently and with a price that matched the outstanding value! Thanks to Colton our family visit went off without a hitch! We will use My Mechanical Man any time in the future for any other services we may need!

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.
