This is my first time using Thumbtack and honestly, I am really satisfied with water heater installation from Walter. Our Water heater was leaking (19 years old) and needed immediate replacement since it was leaking. I was calling all over for the contractors for prices and they all ranged over $1000. Also, other contractors were willing to charge extra fees and unnecessary county code. Walter was professional and very kind. He explained in details about the water heaters and purchasing county code is not necessary. He also showed up at home depot 7 in the morning and picked all the necessary parts and water heater. All I needed to do was to make the purchase. Also, he delivered water heater to my home AT NO ADDITIONAL COST. He finished the work in a timely manner and cleaned up well. I am REALLY satisfied with his service. Walter is going to my plumber and I am going to introduce him to my friends and neighbours. His labour cost is very affordable and reasonable compare to other contractors. I was able to save hundreds of dollars in labour cost. Overall you will never regret hiring Hi solution and Walter is the guy. He is a licensed contractor.

Great working with Frankie. He was able to quickly respond to an issue with the garbage disposal and come and diagnose an issue with the water heater on very short notice. Unfortunately, the water heater was special order so we weren't able to close that deal but he was able to do the garbage disposal for us.

Julian installed an A.O. Smith PXNT-55 electric water heater. He responded promptly (first) to my request on Thumbtack. The specific model selected was based on a couple email exchanges addressing what was in place and my requirements based on the specs of existing equipment and my preference for A.O. Smith products. The day of install he texted me early and arrived punctually. Julian is professional. The removal of old equipment was methodical and install if the new unit clean and neat. The service was also a good value relative to other estimates received. Highly recommended.

The technician installed dishwasher and did water heater maintenance service for my rental condo unit. He went the distance to make sure that the dishwasher was installed correctly. I am very impressed!

We used KCS to replace our HVAC units and water heater, and were extremely impressed with their work. After receiving several estimates, we decided to go with Neal because he was easy to work with, gave the best price, and found a unique solution to a refrigerant line problem which didn't involve cutting holes in our drywall (something I had asked each estimator about and only Neal had come up with a solution for). Neal came out quickly to start the job which took 2 days, and when I missed the appointment for our second day, he offered to come out and finish the work on Sunday, his next day off, to get us out of the scorching heat. Overall, a 5 star company, and I would suggest using them for any of your HVAC needs.

Mr. Self helped me with several items on my home, some light plumbing and electrical, fixed my hot water heater, and installed 2 faucets. He was ACTUALLY ON TIME, cleaned up when he was finished, and billed me exactly what he promised... a great experience, and I will be using him in the future!!

We hired Brad and Lisa to find out if we could repair a leaking refrigerator or if we needed to buy a new one. They fixed that and then helped us replace a leaking toilet, too. They were prompt, honest, and reasonably priced. I think we will be saving hundreds of dollars on our water bill this year due to them. Highly recommended!

I never write reviews but Tim's service was so exceptional I felt it necessary to take the time. Tim's price was the most reasonable around and his work was top notch. He took the time to explain problems and solutions. Will definitely hire again for any HVAC or hot water heater need.

HVAC came in with the best quote and were able to work within my time frame and budget. When the workers discovered the hidden damage under the old hot water heater, they worked up a plan that was quick and affordable to get the project done.

I needed a plumber to diagnose my sump pump system. Kenny was responsive and arrived 10 mins before our scheduled time (a rarity for local contractors)! Because I am unfamiliar with sump pumps, I was somewhat skeptical about hiring a plumber. Kenny did not waste any time and immediately diagnosed the issues. He possessed a thorough knowledge of the system and immediately earned my trust. He worked with me on pricing and charged me a fair price from his "recommended fees" guide. Kenny ordered and picked up the exact parts I needed, installed an upgraded sump pump and piping, and finished the job within two hours. Most impressively, Kenny appears to be the kind of guy that genuinely cares and looks out for your interests. Under his own initiative, he inspected other components in my utility room. He pointed out water heater leaks, and recommended adding a basin to reroute potential floods to my new sump pump system. Unfortunately, I was unable to immediately address other issues in my utility room. Out of his own generosity, he bought me an alert system that he installed in case of potential flooding. Seriously - who does that? I will definitely be calling him to fix my water heater in the near future. If you want quality service from an experienced plumber who cares, give Kenny a try. Highly recommended!

The BEST! We are extremely particular, and Thomas goes the extra mile to ensure the job is done RIGHT. I cannot say enough good things about him - he is so smart and knowledgable, and take the time to walk you through everything. He installed our wood floors, replaced our electrical panel and our hot water heater - he does it all! Highly recommend!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
