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.

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.

Ellal from Awash contractors was courteous and did both the plumbing jobs (under sink garbage disposal replacement and outside water hose replacement) as expected. My wife first discussed the requirements over the phone. We bought both the replacement units before he arrived. He was professional and completed the work with quality and patience. He also helped with one additional 5min job while his team member cleaned up the job area. We would recommend using his services.

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 actually replaced my sump pump. I contacted him and he gave me a quote over the internet (which he would stand behind) but I told him I prefer that he come and look at what I had just to alleviate any surprises. He was happy to do so. He arrived on time and was very knowledgeable personable, kind, and considerate of my work schedule and provided me with more than just one option to do the job. He quoted me a fair price to do the job that I wanted him to do and his price included the sump pump with water pressure backup, new piping, all parts and his labor. The sump pump that he used was one of the best in the line of sump pumps on the market which gave me a great feeling to know that he was using quality products. Zack arrived today to do the job. He was on time and his warm and caring personality were right there with him. He finished the job in about 2 hours and he took the old sump pump and all its belongings with him to discard. He made it a point to explain the operation of the new water pressure backup sump pump so that I understood this new system. He left the area clean and tidy. I asked him if I could contact him again as my "go to guy" for plumbing issues and he smiled and said "of course"....This guy knows his stuff and his work is better than the best. An honest young guy earning a living and caring about his work and the people he services. He's a keeper...Hire Zack

Jarred from All Valley was prompt, courteous, professional and very helpful. He took the time to explain to me all about sump pumps, and basement flooding and causes as I have never had a sump pump or a basement that floods, and I just bought the house in January. His installation is perfect. I highly highly recommend this company. He also took the time to answer some other plumbing questions I had about my new home.

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!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

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

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.

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

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.
