Mr. Sosa saved us thousands of dollars. We had another company tell us we needed a new water heater when we only needed our lines cleaned. Mr. Sosa was here prior to the scheduled time and provided additional advice. His price very reasonable. We will hire him again for other work in the near future. Thanks again.

Carlton came out to my house and was able to maneuver around my junky tool table to fix my water heater. He re-lit the pilot but my ignitor was faulty and after it cycled and he left, the water heater went out. Carlton had already ordered the part I needed and came back a week later after the part was shipped and installed the part. He was upfront with his cost and time.

Excellent job! Very professional and had great attention to detail. He hung an entire house of window blinds into a block home and also fixed the leaking water valve under the kitchen sink. I plan on hiring again for fixture replacement and custom closet build out.

I scheduled a time for David to give me a free estimate to begin with; not only was he on time, he was even 10 minutes early! I hired him to repair water damage in a ceiling then paint the entire ceiling on the first floor of my home. It was finished within about 8 hours. Very Timely, Very Professional. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone. -Corbiere

Rene is the best! He repaired some hardiplank siding, re-fastened some loose boards, and caulked the joints at our house. The best thing, was that he didnt push the paint job on the hardi-plank on us, which was great. He also repainted our condo, repaired wobbly fan (still barely wobbly, but WAY better...I'm thinking it can't be done any better than what they did), AND he repaired some water damaged laminate without having to redo the entire floors! The best thing, he worked with our budget, super about communication via text, phone, or email, and Quick about getting to projects! I secretly don't want to refer him because his schedule may get more busy, but he's been so great. I have saved him on my phone for future projects, and have been referring him to friends. you won't find a better contractor for the price and flexibility.

Felipe Garcia and team member, Scotty, were absolutely amazing. They showed up on time, and were as professional, efficient, and courteous as any home professional repair company I have ever worked with. Felipe's pricing beat five other estimates substantially. They remained on site to make certain everything worked properly that primarily included replacement of a hot water heater. If you are looking for solid workmanship, no 'upselling techniques', honesty -- all at an extremely fair price, then look no further than Felipe Garcia. Oh, all of the above with same day service -- within two hours of my first outreach on Thumbtack.

Cost estimate was significantly less than a well known plumbing company in the greater Austin area (e.g $1400) while still replacing the same parts and meeting code standards. Garrett was timely,communicative, efficient, and followed up several days later to ensure the water heater was working properly. Already recommended to our neighbor and will recommend to others.

I found A1 Plumbing through a friend who had used their services when I had a waterline break at my rental property. Jim came out and quickly fixed the issue. I also had a turn off valve installed to prevent any other water flooding. With the great job provided I had him come to my house and install a touchless water faucet. Great work, excellent quality and reasonable.

He answered the phone quickly and was the first to respond. His price was really low since than all others. All I had to do was buy all the supplies at The Home Depot from a list that Jose provided. He installed a water heater according to inspection code. Great guy.

Chad responded quickly with a highly competitive offer. He was able to fit us into his schedule the next day. In addition to fixing our problem, he also did a review of our other sinks, water softener and two hot water heaters. He called with an overview of his findings, but was not pushy about repair work. His professionalism was exemplary and we will be using him again for our plumbing needs! Thanks, Chad! And thanks Thumtack!!

I hired Tim to resolve a hot water pressure and temperature issue on our gas tankless unit. It was taking 8 minutes for hot water to reach our master shower and then it would not hold temperature. He performed an exhaustive assessment to determine what the problem might be. After hours of deliberative searching, including phone calls to Navien tech support, he was able to determine we had a clogged supply line in the copper pipe that was only allowing a fraction of the water to pass. I'm surprised the water in our home was even operable. Tim is honest and fair with super high standards. I consider myself super handy, though this is my first tankless unit and it was worth the investment with Deco. It now takes 45 seconds for the hot water to reach our master shower and the water temperature sustains. Our shower experience has been full restored thanks to Tim.

Had a leak in front yard and Armando contacted me letting me know he would be out 1st thing in morning. Long story short, pipe was fixed next day at very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to contact him again on any future issues.

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.

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
