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.

I needed my old gas hot water heater replaced because it was leaking. James and his assistant Jason were very professional. They installed a new water heater in a short amount of time. Excellent and prompt service.

I am very impressed with HHS. I had an emergency situation arise when i attempted to replace some lighting in my home. Ruben came out and took care of it. He was very good at his job and i felt comfortable. He got it done. I have several small jobs and some remodel work to prepare my home for sale. I am so glad that they can handle it all. I highly recommend

Great Job... I have the actual people that installed the heater come out and services it and they had no clue what was the issues... ( or so they say ) Even after sourcing my own parts for the job it still didnt work... After calling AP he came out and the heater was fixed in less than an hour... Great Job... Outstanding work... Thanks you so very much...

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.

We went with Dennis after receiving a few different quotes from other companies. His prices were reasonable and he didn't pressure us into anything we didn't need. We had central AC installed as well as a new furnace and water heater. The install day was very smooth and Dennis was always available to answer any questions or concerns. It's only been a couple months but everything is working great.

I can't say enough about Hassan, what a fantastic person to work with. He was extremely flexible working around my schedule and taking the time to walk through his thought process to explain why particular things needed to be handled in certain ways per code or otherwise. To give some sense for the scope of work, my project included: - running new PEX lines from the main to our utility room - new lines to the bathroom and laundry - decommissioning of the existing water heater - installation of a new on-demand heater - running new gas lines to my furnace, on-demand heater and dryer. Lots of work, Five-start recommendation from me!

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.

It was excellent experience working with Washington Natural Gas. Everything went smoothly and pleasant. One of our water heaters stopped working after 8 years life. I submitted work request on Thumbtack 11:00pm at night, then got a phone call from Mike at Washing Natural Gas next day morning. Mike was super friendly and knowledgeable. He provided all the options what we could do and offered a free estimate at our convinient time. 2 days later Eric and Andrew installed a new water heater for us. After the work was done, Eric walked me through in details what they did and cleaned up the working area. Eric also put a sticky note on the water tank with warranty information on it which is really helpful. We are very pleased with Washington Natural Gas and will definetly work with them again in the future.

He was by far the best price by a mile and he came and did the work and more without charging anything extra. He installed a new water line for me outside and snaked a drain. He also installed an emergency water shut off for me at no extra cost. He just saw it needed to be done and he did it.. All systems work great now. I can't say enough good things about him. I have other work I need done and I will definitely hire him again!!

Scott did the whole job my himself in 3 days total. I had my whole house re-piped, along with installation of new water heater, toilet, shower surround, and washer/dryer/fridge hookups. He has been doing this for years, which reflects in his work and his explanations. He was respectful, trustworthy, and explained each step along the way if I had questions. Definitely hire him for your next job if you want it done right!

The process to schedule the installation was little difficult as I was put on hold few times. But the installation and the service itself was really good. Don installed the water heater and he was very detailed with his work and took the time to install it the right way!

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.
