We hired Brad for installing both a water heater and pressure-reducing valve in our condo. There was limited space within the closet where the water heater had to be installed, so the existing pipes were in a complicated setup. Brad took on this job which other plumbers either did not think was possible to complete or wanted to charge twice as much for. He came by the same evening that we hired him, did an excellent job, was very personable, and charged a reasonable price. Could not be happier with the job he did!

Steve Communicated with me promptly and was able to provide service the next day. My water heater had been out for five days so he was a godsend! He was flexible and able to pick up my water heater for me and install it within a couple of hours. He was very gracious despite a challenging entry way to my basement. I now have hot water and couldn't be more pleased.His work was incredibly reasonable as well! Thank you Steve!

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.

My nine-year-old hot water heater went out all of a sudden. They responded within 15 minutes of my request. Sutter was out the very next day and changed out my hot water heater and also had picked it up from Home Depot for me. The price was fair and the service was outstanding, I will definitely use them again.

We had a new kitchen faucet to install and was having difficulty with loosening the supply lines.

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!!!!!

Barton fixed the problems I was having with multiple things in my bathroom in a timely manner. Replaced faucets, toilet parts etc. Took it all apart and did a most efficient job- left the place as clean as he found it. Even made a trip to Home Depot for supplies since the job required more than originally expected. We are girls living over here and he was pleasant and trustworthy and I felt completely confident.

Adam was very helpful, he knows his business, was very knowledgeable and gave me information on how to save some money on some minor maintenance to help my water heater last a lot longer. He was a great conversationalist, easy to talk to and really gave the impression that he cared about my problem. Especially after such short notice because my other plumber from another source was the COMPLETE opposite!

My gas water heater wasn't working well. Jason stated it could be 2 things needed replacing and the approximate price vs a new one. He also told me about code updates and my present heat would not pass this. I got the new one and he got me to code for when i sell my house. Very nice and very professional. Enjoyable experience.

We recently had Wizard Plumbing install a tankless water heater in our home. The owner, Ray, went above and beyond to help us through the entire process. He explained the pros and cons of each unit and guided us towards purchasing the best unit for our needs. In no time he installed and programmed our unit. We were completely satisfied, and have already recommended Wizard Plumbing to our neighbors.

Right before going out of town, our water heater went out. Holt Plumbing worked with our schedule to get it replaced. While our of town our neighbor let us know an outside faucet was running. When I called Holt they suggested they stopped the leak, but not do any major repairs until we returned home. I was so impressed with they way they handled the situation. Responses like these are only part of the reason we only use Holt Plumbing!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
