Mr Sosa responded in a very timely manner. He did an excellent job replacing my water heater while triple checking his work. He paid excellent attention to the fine details and made sure he left the area in the same shape he found it in. I appreciated his time management and communication about what needed to done, any parts or previous work that were substandard. He also went the extra mile by letting me know when he would arrive at my house and updates to his schedule so I could be available for the repair/replacement of my water heater. I highly recommend Mr Sosa for future needs/requirements.

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.

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

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 had this mystery "Hot Water Bank" it's labeled GE - (waterless water box) in a closet. David was able to tell me it's actually not being used as a water heater. Rather it was installed when the home was built (by a builder who I think was super conscientious about everything) in 1986. He had this installed to cool the outside HVAC unit and make it last longer! Must be working because it's a 32 year old unit still doing fine! No one else had understood what this was or how it was wired and plumbed in. Thanks David!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
