I can't say enough good things about Harry. He installed our new water heater immediately, and his fee was incredibly reasonable. I've already recommended him to friends.

We had a leak that the utility company came out and looked at said that that they wouldn’t fix because it was right next to the meter on the house side. After posting a quote request on Thumbtak Jeff responded very quickly and was able to come out the next day to look at it. Not only was he very nice and knowledgeable but he was able to repair the water main leak in just a few hours and did it at a very reasonable price. Not only would I recommend him but I will be hiring him again whenever I get the chance.

Chris with Arctic heating and cooling had come to our place to fix the AC. Right after which there was a water leak in one of our closets which I initially suspected was due to the AC. I spoke to Chris on the phone, explained him what I was seeing and sent him a couple of pics. He immediately called me back and asked me to turn off the water line to the house (on a hindsight, that saved us from more damages). Turned out that one of the water pipes in our closet had a pinhole leak and had nothing to do with the AC. Chris promptly followed up and even agreed to get the water leak taken care of. He came down on a Saturday, diligently worked on the problem, fixed it, charged very reasonable fee (without any extras for attending on a weekend), and went the extra mile to lookup what could be causing the pinhole leaks. I would strongly recommend Chris and his team for any heating, cooling and plumbing needs one may have,

This was my first time on Thumbtack and I am well pleased. Water heater gave out Thursday leaking heavily and was no longer providing hot water. Friday had a brand new water heater installed with running hot water in a timely manner. Everything from labor and parts was well priced. I have saved this contractor in my contacts for future house needs.

Brian built a fence for us and took the time to do it right we are very pleased with his work. He gave us a wonderful price and was very easy to work with. We would love to have him back for other projects. We trust him in our home and around our pets. He can do pretty much anything that you would need done around your home. He put in an emergency hot water heater and once again gave us a great deal. Even though everything went wrong that day with the hot water heater Brian was calm and replaced everything we needed for hot showers that night! If you have a home that is a "money pit" you will be so happy you met this talented and honest man.

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.
