Walter called and offered to come the night before to replace our water heater. He and his associate both made sure not to bring water or mud into the house onto the carpet during the process and finished the replacement within the time quote given, all for a very reasonable price. Good to have hot water again!

Shorty's Plumbing responded to my ASAP request to fix a gas leak within 10 minutes of posting. They gave a fixed (reasonable) price for the pressure test which would be required, and a price estimate guessing at what the repair would involve. The crew was at the house within 3 hours of posting the job. It was the second plumbing company I had hired to fix the gas leak. This time the repair was completed properly and within the pre-discussed cost. Shorty's even accepted CC payment (my preferred method). The only very minor nit-pick would be they had to call the payment details back into the office for processing, but I was emailed the receipt. Not a problem at all. They will be my first call on the next plumbing issue.

This was the first time I would be using a service like thumbtack but I was sure glad I did. Freddy from Steddy Plumbing won me over when he already told me precisely what the issue was with my water heater just from looking at pictures. He was very professional in his service and the best part, I wasn't even available when he completed the whole job in about an hour or less. I definitely would recommend Freddy from Steddy Plumbing for your plumbing issues. The guy knows his stuff!!!

Mr. Kirk came out to my residence to install a new hot water heater that I had purchased. He communicated his ETA and estimated labor hours very effectively and honestly. He was sure to let me know when he believed someone thing may take longer and provided a qualified honest reason why. Mr. Kirk provided what I would call “white glove” service and left no trace of his presence upon his departure. He was even kind enough to “haul away” the old hot water heater at no additional cost. I will surely be using Mr. Kirk again for other plumbing related needs I have such as new faucets and poorly draining drains and help with a poorly installed (not by Mr. Kirk) sprinkler system. Overall Mr. Kirk is a honest, hard working individual who knows his stuff and is willing share his knowledge and get the job done right first time.

My experience working with Ruben Sillero was one of the best he is a excellent plumbers I, was on time for his appointment . He did a great job installing my bathtub, toilet, sink. The remodeling for my bath room was excellent he thought of every single little detail. And one of the best thing when he was done working he left everything clean. He also did an excellent job installing my water heater if I would have to hire another plumber I would hire him.

K&G responded quickly and arrived on time to fix a water leak above the water heater in the attic. They fixed the leak and inspected the water heater. The work was quick, neatly done and reasonably priced. I would definitely call them again.

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.
