Dan was efficient and fast. He came in, measured, went out and bought a new water heater, installed it, and removed old one. Job was completed within the time frame quoted. We are very pleased with his work. I would recommend him with no reservations.

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!!!

Burt was outstanding with his quality of work with replacing my water heater. He arrived right on time, helped me drain and measure my old water heater, and then drove with me to Home Depot to pick up a new unit. He was very knowledgeable, and explained everything that he was doing, even when my gas line did not line up perfectly. His prices are very good and he makes sure the job is done right. I highly recommend Burt for any of your 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.

I was contacted within minutes by Tabatha from All Affordable Plumbing regarding my plumbing issue I was having. She was ready to send Dennis out to my house, free of charge, to determine the extent of my problem (water just stopped throughout the house!). After speaking with Dennis (45 yrs experience), she called me back, gave me some instructions on how to do some simple troubleshooting ourselves, and when this didn't solve the issue, let me know I should call someone who specializing with well pumps, as this was likely the cause. I am so grateful for honest people like these! Thank you Tabatha and Dennis

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
