I found Nolan via Thumbtack when I needed to wall mount 2 of my televisions on different rooms. Nolan and Tim were simple amazing. They were thoroughly professional and did the job to perfection. They also carefully analyzed the walls to ensure they did the right thing when they were applying screws and not touch any power or water lines. One happy customer and I would not hesitate to give them a call back when I am ready with my next to do list. Totally recommend.  Bonus-  Nolan speaks great Hindi too :-)

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.

Doerksen was very punctual and informative. He knew exactly what was needed, assisted me in obtaining the correct items for my water heater replacement, and had all the work done in less than 2 hours. Don't let other companies over-sell you, look into hiring Doerksen!

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.

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.

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+++

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!

From the first phone call to the final bill McClendon's people and services exceeded expectations while providing fast, friendly service at best prices. Woke up at 4:45 am to a leaking water heater. Posted on Thumbtack and got a response from Taylor who alerted me to the water heater specials. Their prices were better than anyone could offer and they walked me through considerations for a tankless heater and add-Ins possibly needed for this job. Scheduled for the next day and friendly knowledgeable service person showed up right on time and performed the work admirably. All round highest marks.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
