Had an outdoor GFCI outlet for a small pond pump to run. Outlet went bad -- third time in three years. He was the first electrician to explain that the cause was ants. They seek the warmth to lay eggs. When enough ants are in their, they conduct electricity (because they are essentially water) and short out the GFCI. I had seen ant infestations in there prior, but didnt think anything of it, other than a nuisance. Also, he noticed the burned out GFCI was not meant for outdoors --previous electrician did not install a water proof one.

Water heatet went during the night. Needed a immediate replacement, install, and take away. Put in the request in the morning on Thumbtack and Cody came out promptly, quoted me over the phone for 950 for 50 gallon State water heater. Had a ding in it and he cut me a break at 800. Extremely professional and would hire again. Quick install, now I have my hot water back. If you have an emergency like I did, call Cody.

I had called other plumbers who were referred by friends but they were not responsive and when they did show up they could t perform the job that day. Ricky contacted me right away and scheduled a visit the next day. He appraised my job and completed it quickly and professionally the same afternoon. I had a new gas dryer that required a new gas line installation and a new vent from an existing gas line in my laundry room. He also installed my washing machine. I will definitely call Ricky when my 2004 gas water heater kicks the bucket.

Carroll added a dryer exhaust vent and washer/ dryer outlet to my parents house. You always worry about getting someone you don't know to come do work for you, even worse when it's your parents house. He quickly provided me a quote, replied to my questions and comments and did the work on a holiday day. He showed up on time and knocked the work out within a couple of hours. Much faster than I expected. His pricing was also very good. Thanks to him my parents laundry issues were solved efficiently. I will use him again if there are any additional electrical issues that requires an expert.

Dan was great. We needed an old hot water removed from a closet in our kitchen and placed in our crawl space. He ordered the new water heater and had it delivered. Dan communicated with us prior to the job in an excellent way. He showed up on time and finished on time. He is a very nice man and we are very happy with the work he did. We would definitely recommend Dan to others.

I have had Shawn do a tremendous number of jobs over the past few years and all of his work has been excellent. Jobs ranged from fixing floor creaks, replacing hot water heater, repairing carpet, repairing railing on a cement porch and drywall repairs. He even attended a foreclosure inspection and helped me vet/price things the inspector said would need to be done. His work was always done quickly, he cleans up after his jobs, and his prices are fair. The hardest part about hiring someone to work on your home is finding someone you can trust. Once you have Shawn do a single job for you, you will always call him when you need something done. He is also well connected in the area and can refer you to the right person for a job if it is outside of his expertise (or rather that he just trusts someone to do it better for you).

Kevin was very prompt and accommodating. I needed someone to install my kitchen sink faucet immediately and he saved the day. He called and showed up at the promised time. He needed additional parts to complete the job and he didn't put me off until the next day. He purchased the part and returned in no time. Kevin was very courteous, personable and professional.

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.
