I contacted Martin to perform a repair on my water heater. He made special effort to come in the afternoon when he could've punted 'til the following morning, especially given the heavy rains that made the trip uninviting. He displayed a willingness to go the extra mile in securing a part from a supply store that had closed for the day. He was conscientious as weIl -- making sure to test for any gas leaks after he'd done the repair even though the space was not easy to work in. I thought his pricing was very fair. I assume he's very competent overall but my repair didn't really present a challenge. I would not hesitate to use him or recommend him.

They were called on a Saturday and gave a quote to replace a water heater. They also showed up earlier than their expected time. Very professional and highly recommend.

Excellent Lob. Super Fast service with immediate installation of the water heater. Friendly instructions for maintenance of the water heater. I wish all the plumbers are like Jeremy Bent. I strongly recommend Jeremy Bent services to every person.

Russell replaced my old water heater. His price was very competitive and he showed up one day after initial contact to complete the job. I had several questions and they were answered quickly and accurately. I would highly recommend you contact this company before hiring one of the national chains. It could save you a significant amount of money with the same level of professionalism.

Bryan replaced both of our water heaters and brought them up to code. He was polite and honest. His quote was very competitive (especially for an insured, Master plumber) and it was accurate with no hidden fees. He arrive on time, worked quickly and left the area clean. I highly recommend Bryan if you are looking for a plumber to fix your problem and not a salesman to sell you a bunch of stuff you don't need. I would hire him again.

Eloy took time out if his busy schedule to repair my kichen faucet. He even repaired my water heater which was clearly a safety violation.

Mike did a superior job! He showed up during his window, finished early, and was professional from start to finish. He even showed me how to maintain our new water heater each month. I definitely recommend SA Mechanical; I will continue to use Michael Zinna for all of our plumbing needs in the future.

When I called Vinny, I needed help with a water leak in an outdoor spigot. He talked me through it in the phone and said I could possibly fix it myself. I followed his instructions and was able to fix it. I have recently spent thousands of dollars on plumbing repairs that are still not fully working. It was so nice to call someone who was honest and didn't want to overcharge me. I will call him 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.

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.
