John is a professional and did excellent work for me. First he replaced a kitchen faucet, then leanking hot water heater valve, then re-cabled hot water heater wires that had been incorrectly cabled. I would definitely hire him again for any kind of handyman work.

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.

Thought price was fair and he was on time for both jobs. He cleared my AC drain pipe, updated a part on my AC unit and replaced our leaking hot water heater. He will explain what he's is doing if you want to know. Thanks!

David arrived on schedule and his work exceeded my expectations. His fees were extremely reasonable and he even removed and disposed of our old water heater. I strongly recommend Housepro LLC for small plumbing and electrical projects.

Jason did a great job replacing our water heater. He even made an additional trip to the house to make an additional improvement. I would hire Jason for another job without question.

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.
