Seemed like a nice guy. Great service as long as you are close around Nashville area. Willing to work late, but works too far outside home turf (came 2.5 hrs one way to install my water heater) and when there was an unexpected problem with pipes couldn't get parts because it was so late and left project 98% complete. I'm grateful for the quick service but will probably find someone closer to home next time.

Just moved to the area and was unsure as to who to call to fix my water heater. Had one other professional who came by to give an estimate prior to Adam. Without knowing the estimate Adam was able to do the same job for a substantial amount less. Work was done quickly and professionally. Highly recommended.

They returned my call right away. They were able to replace my water heater the same day. Matt did an excellent job and the price was very fair. They will be my first call the next time I need a plumber.

Geno, installed a new water heater and a new ceiling fan at my home. Things went well and there is not much of anything I could have expected to have gone any better than they did. I was very satisfied with the service he provided.

I hired Andrew for installation of a new gas hot water heater. His price was extremely fair, he communicated with me prior to the job and was available for questions. He showed up on time, was polite and professional, and got the job done as promised. I am comfortable recommending Andrew based on my experience, and I will use him for future home projects.

Allen and his team did an outstanding job. Hot water Heater and AC went out on Sunday night and Allen was diagnosing the issue with me that evening. He and the team came first thing the next morning and had all my issues fixed in one day. They cleaned up everything like they'd never even been there and were extremely polite the entire time. He even inspected and fixed a few common things that homeowners sometimes forget. I'll be calling Allen from now on.

I would highly recommend the Hudgins Home Repair team to anyone that needs help with projects around their home. The husband and wife duo (Derrick and his wife Rachel) are both very knowledgeable, considerate, professional and affordable. Derrick installed my new sink/vanity in my bathroom, set my toilet in place, installed my entire shower kit, hooked up my water heater, and fixed the gurgling noise that my HVAC unit was making. When we couldn’t figure out why the water wouldn’t flow in the bathroom unless we turned the water on in the kitchen, Derrick worked tirelessly to figure out what the issue was and resolved it. When other people would’ve thrown their hands in the air and given up, Derrick didn’t stop until I had hot water flowing properly to all of the plumbing in my house! When it comes to my home improvement projects, there are very few people that I would trust to get the job done right, and the Hudgins Home Repair team are at the TOP of my list!!!!!

Gary has done a ton of work for me over the past few years, and I all I can say is that he does exceptional work and is a true professional. They are all quality jobs and I've never had to call him back due to insufficient work. He's installed sinks, toilets, unclogged major backups, exchanged water heater, fixed pipes... NO job is too small and he charges a fair price as well. Worth EVERY penny.

Lee Bowling has remodel a small bedroom in my home into a nice walk-in closet. He also built additional shelves in my kitchen. Lee installed ceiling fans as well as indoor and outdoor lights. He replaced my hot water heater. All of his work is very professional. I appreciated his caring attitude in order to make his customer happy with the completed job. I highly recommend Harmony Services.

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.

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.

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.
