Fast, on time, personable, thoughtful. They didn’t try to up sell. Everyone I worked with was friendly from the woman who helped me book the appointment and understand the process as a first time home owner, to the gentlemen who came to install the water heater and fix a kitchen issue. Gave us an estimate and they stuck to that estimate. We will 100 percent be using them again.

James gave me a very reasonable quote, and he installed a new water heater in my house yesterday. This was a tough job - a tiny space barely big enough to accommodate the heater, and awkward plumbing that had to be largely re-done in order for the heater to fit the space. It ended up being a longer, more difficult process than either of us bargained on, but James toughed it out and got it done. Despite the fact that the job was more complicated than we had originally anticipated, and required a lot more work than I think he was planning on, he did not attempt to charge me more than he had originally quoted (although I insisted on paying him extra because he certainly earned it). James is going to be my go-to guy for plumbing from now on.

We recently had our garbage disposal removed as we prefer a drain system without it. We hired Gil using thumbtack. He was quick to respond, and then seamlessly scheduled an appointment for the next day. He arrived on time, assessed the under sink situation, and gave us an accurate quote to remove the old disposal and re-plumb all the piping. In addition he walked us through what we would need in the future for a new water heater installation. We will definitely hire Gil again in the future.

Honest Air Systems (H.A.S.) came out last Fall when we were trying to figure out why the heater was not getting electrical power. H.A.S. took a look and determined that it was a power transformer in our heating unit that has not working any longer. The part was ordered and replaced within a few days. The heater worked just fine throughout the Winter. I'm sure that if I had called a big company, the bill would have been double what we paid. Honest Air Systems has low overhead so they can provide excellent value, does professional work, and provides great service.

The worker H2Flow sent (Hassan Baker) was highly skilled and meticulous. Big smile and friendly! Dogs didn’t bark which is always a tell! We have a 6,400 sq ft home with complex systems that includes on-demand instant hot water. We have a small hot water tank that eliminates what he called “cold water sandwich “, an occurrence that’s common for tankless water heaters. I didn’t want to entrust this job to just anyone and did my research and went with H2Flow. I couldn’t have been more satisfied. The workmanship was exceptional! AAA+++

John put in a new water line to a refrigerator in an older home that wasn't previously set up for one. John answered my call right away and scheduled a visit quickly. He did a great job at a fair price. Hope I don't need a plumber again soon but would definitely recommend him and would call on him again when needed.

Robert from Big Jerry's was "Johnny-on-the-spot." Technically I guess he was "Robert-on-the-spot." Anyway, mere hours after noticing my water heater had a leak, using the Thumb Tack app and getting a quote from Big Jerry's Plumbing I was back in business with a new, installed water heater. Robert and his son explained what they were doing and answered all of my questions. The water heater itself cost a bit more than quoted. The install, to my understanding, comes with a one year warranty on the work should I need a plumber to come out for issues related to the new water heater. The water heater itself has a six year manufacturer warranty. I plan to use Big Jerry's in the future when I am ready to get an outside faucet bib replaced. I highly recommend for your plumbing needs.

Last year David replaced our heat pump. He warned us our furnace would not be far behind. A month ago during the hottest days of the year it gave up. David was my first call. He is very polite, friendly and professional. His work is high in quality and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend him for any AC, furnace, or water heater issues. Plus he is just a great guy.

Our water heater decided to go out on us Saturday evening. We have had it for 22 years and it reached its life span. I tried to shut off the water to the tank and that broke as well. So, it leaked all night and flooded our laundry room the next morning. I called Ally Plumbing and they sent Joe out to give us an estimate. He also capped the pipe where the valve broke. The next morning Joe showed back up to take out the old water heater and install the new one. He was friendly and worked hard. I spent most of the time watching him and asked questions. He was very patient and explained the process and ways to make the new one last for many years. He was finished by noon and I was very pleased with his work. I have finally found an honest and reliable plumber and plumbing company.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
