Steve was very professional when he arrived. It was very comfortable to talk with him and he got the job done in a reasonable time at a reasonable price. Thank you for cleaning our gutters! It helped with the water seepage into our basement.

Mark was very professional from the beginning to end of this project. He quickly responded to all my inquires during the initial planning. For a very reasonable price Mark picked our water heater up from the store, installed it and took away the old one. He was punctual, efficient and left the place clean. I am very happy with his services and would definitely hire him for future plumbing work. Highly recommended!

I requested a quote Friday night, received a response back within 5 minutes and Joel arrived the next morning on time. Very personable. Laid out the options in an organized manner. Installed the water heater the same day. Assuming no issues with the installation (time will tell), good experience overall. Now time to take a hot shower!

Marvis arrived on time and identified himself as a pro plumber and presented his id. He came ready and immediately knows what to do. This guy is so patient, he fixed my water heater for more than 3 hours and even went back again (about 20 minutes after he left) when i called to check a minor issue... The next day he called me to follow up if everything is working well. He did an excellent job! i will definitely hire him again for our future plumbing services.

Mike was very professional when it came to the install of the water heater. He explained everything to my wife and I the whole way with the install. We would definitely recommend him and will hopefully use him again in future projects with our base board heat and programmable thermostats.

I hired Bob for a leaking toilet. He was prompt and very flexible. I work full time and he was able to accommodate my schedule. Toilet was fixed. I called him again to install appliances. Again he was very flexible and changed his schedule to accommodate mine. Also I needed my heater fixed. He got it working, but then more air got in the line and the zone stopped working again. I called him and he came to my rescue the next day (which happened to be Sunday) and was able to fix the problem. I am grateful to have found someone so versatile, reliable, and flexible. I will be hiring him many more times. You won't be sorry to hire this company, but don' t keep him too busy because I need him! 😄

We are very satisfied with Ray’s service. He responded quickly to our call and came the next day. Another place was giving us 2 weeks to replace our water heater and I’m so happy we found Ray! He was punctual, friendly, and super helpful...answered all my questions and gave advice on other plumbing issues we had. Highly recommend and will definitely be calling him for my other plumbing needs. Thanks Ray!

Mr. Rooter has done several jobs for us including replacing our hot water heater. They came quickly, worked efficiently and cleaned up any debris that resulted from the job they had completed. I'd definitely recommend them to others and they'll be my first and only call whenever I have another plumbing need!

Tom did this job with Mike McGlaughlin under their business name M & F Plumbing. They were really good to work with, and very responsive to get us a quote for an emergency water heater replacement that we needed done for our 6-unit condo association. The total for the job was well below what a couple of the other big-name plumbing companies quoted, and yet they got the job done quickly and professionally. We plan to use them again in the future.

Craig went above and beyond my expectation in every way. He responded to Thumbtack request in < 5 min. He took time to listen/explain the issue and suggested replacing the water heater was better option. Unlike big plumber who charge $100 just to evaluate the issue, Craig quoted me the price over the phone and got the work done in next 24 hours. I had some concern/question once the installation was done and called me at 8:00PM. He drove in right away and addressed my concern (Not something that you would expect from big plumbing companies). And best of all, Craig's quote was LESS THAN HALF of other big plumbing companies. Totally recommend him for any plumbing needs.

This was the best experience I could have asked for with my project! I am flipping a house and had planned on doing as much of the plumbing/radiators as I could. It turned out that I needed a lot more work than expected and Chris gave me exceptional service at an affordable price. We ended up installing a Navien Combi for use with propane. They installed about 100 feet of baseboard heater, with 1 kick space heater under the sink, as well as all the propane lines for the cooking range, and combi. They also did all the rest of the plumbing work inside the house on the kitchen/laundry and bath. The work looks great, and was done very fast. Chris, Dan & Travis were very nice guys to have working in the home, and Eliza was a pleasure to deal with on the phone. They paid attention to detail and made sure that the work was done right, but also looked good. Chris even went out of his way to bring a saw and finish nail gun for me to use after giving me his opinion of how he thought I should trim up a copper sink I installed. The system was absolutely the right choice for this house and I am certain that it is going to be a huge selling feature for me when I list it on the market. I am looking forward to working with these guys on my home boiler replacement as well as for my next flip.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
