Charles did a fantastic job helping us with a water leak associated with our washer - ended up not being an appliance issue but a clogged pipe. He has a great attitude and wants to solve your problem. He went above and beyond the job and helped with a few things in addition to the issue at hand. Didn't change the price and he was enjoyable to be around. Charles is VERY knowledgeable about the washer/dryer aspects (and is happy to give you input on ongoing maintenance to prolong the life of your products). We would definitely use Charles again in the future.

Sam is my go to guy for my residence and my business. I’ve had him perform preventative maintenance on my HVAC unit at my home and business. He also fixed my hot water heater at my residence quickly and efficiently. Most recently, he came to my business, on a moments notice and got on the roof, literally in the middle of a snow storm and restored heat to my business along with a new nest thermostat. If you want professionalism, knowledge and quality work, Advanced Heating and Air is where you’ll find it.

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.

Mike came out the same day I called him, and the next morning, I had a new hot water heater after mine all but drained itself multiple times into my basement. He did quick work, had good ideas on making sure I could drain the tank if need be with how my basement was set up, and didn't charge more than I thought it would be. All around, great job and will use in the future.

Zack came and replaced my hot water heater as a same day service. He was wonderful to deal with. Not only did he remove the old unit, but he completely cleaned up the area upon installation of the new unit. Zack was thorough and competent as well as courteous and a real professional in his work. I strongly recommend hiring him and will certainly go to him first for future work. Thank you, Zack!!

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!!

Great work all around! We thought we were done with our heater for he season until this little cold snap. These guys were able to come out the same day and get my system running. They didn’t try to upsell or force me to buy Something I didn’t need. They truly cared about solving my issue and didn’t charge me an arm and leg to do it. I’m having them out next week for an AC tune up. Definitely recommend!

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. Thank you Matt!

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 long is a water heater supposed to last?

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

  • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
  • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
  • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
  • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
  • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

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.
