This was an excellent experience! We live in an area that got flooded severely and couldn't find anyone local to install our new water heater. Everyone was either not accepting new jobs or booked for close to a month. I tried going through a big box store and the quote was more than the water heater. Then I tried Thumbtack and Waterbender was able to come sooner and install it for 1/3 the price. They even drove 2 hours each way to do it. Highly recommend!!!

When our water heater needed to be replaced, we went through the process of getting several quotes. I had just found the Thumbtack site a few days prior looking up Junk Removal sites, so I decided to try it out. We only got one quote from Thumbtack but it was the most appealing to us. While every other place gave one flat rate including cost of water heater, Burt's quote gave us the idea to purchase the water heater on our own and he would install it for a very reasonable hourly labor rate. This ended up working out very well since Home Depot lets you do a six-month no interest payment plan. Burt even offered in his quote to pick up the water heater for us but we were able to get it home on our own. I was very pleased that Burt gave me several references who all verified he is well-versed in plumbing and has quite a list of satisfactory jobs he has completed during his career. This gave us the confidence to move ahead. Burt arrived right on time and ready for work. He had every tool he would need to complete the job and even when he needed an additional part, he stopped the clock and picked it up on his own time. He did a wonderful and professional job of successfully installing the new water heater. He completed the job for us in a timely manner. He was very professional and friendly. Since he was also disposing of our old water heater for us, at an agreed upon rate he also took a couple old non-functioning small appliances we needed to dispose of but didn't want to pay the high Waste Management fees. Finally, although Burt is not a service plumber but explained his forte is rough plumbing, he even agreed to check our toilet and put in a new flush valve for us. I can't say more about how happy we are that we chose Burt to complete this job for us. In this day and age it can be hard to find trustworthy solid workmanship, but we did find that in Burt. We are happy to recommend him wholeheartedly. Thank you Burt, for a job well done.

We had an emergency water leak that had to be taken care of quickly. I'm so glad I found Brian! He was an absolute lifesaver -from the minute he walked in I could tell we were in good hands. He was polite, knowledgeable and REASONABLE (without trying to upsell). The care that was taken to protect our home is always expected but rarely achieved, he was AWESOME! I will not hesitate to hire him again.

Dakota did an awesome job with both projects. It only allowed me to enter 3 things I liked but the 4th is value. He is very responsive, very affordable, very professional. He put in a new faucet and a new hot water heater on separate occasions. I highly highly recommend this person. Saved me lots of $.

The work is done with meticulous detail and excellence. Every job has been thorough. If any item needed addressing KJ Homeworks made it to our liking immediately. We appreciate all they have done for us.

    I woke up on a weekend and found myself standing in water in my carpeted bedroom! All the plumbers I called could not come out until Monday, except for Andy's. They came right away, and found my water heater was leaking out the back. They quoted me a very good price and in just a couple of hours, they sourced a new water heater, installed it beautifully, and left everything clean and neat. Really nice people. I recently had a home inspection, and the gentleman remarked what a grear job was done on the install. I will call Andy's for ALL my future plumbing needs!

    Koz plumbing not only did a thorough job. They fixed an outside water faucet that had broken over the winter and fixed a crack in the foundation that was a result of water freezing from the leak. They left the work area cleaned and even took some time to answer my questions about the battery backup to the sump pump and showed me an issue they discovered with the water heater. I am definitely calling them back to do some other work.

      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.
