Water Heater Repair Near You Reviews

ACME PLUMBING
5.0
Acme Plumbing first helped us try to figure out if the heater was under warranty and would be fixed by manufacturer for free. (We moved into the house last year, so we had imperfect documentation about the heater.) When we found out that the water heater was just out of warranty, Acme Plumbing sent someone out. He figured out it was a dirty sensor. He cleaned the sensor and we had hot water again. What a relief!

Kesterson Plumbing & Heating Inc
5.0
I've used Kesterson's for 3 jobs since buying my house last year. They had done the plumbing work on the house previously, and were recommended by the prior owner. So far we've had them replace an old hot water heater, fix some radiator problems, and replace a broken toilet flange. We've worked with Omar and he has done a great job every time. I will definitely continue using Kesterson's in the future.

PLUMB CRAZY INC
5.0
Found break in pipe quickly and fixed it. Discovered there was a second leak and fixed that too. Hot water header element was bad. Gave me part number and I went and bought it which saved me $$$$$. Got heater working and all is good! Gave me an honest assessment of the issues found and helped keep costs to a minimum. Would use that again in a heartbeat. Both crew members were very good and courteous. Only issue is one of them kept taking personal calls from / about a girlfriend that I had to listen to. Not really that interested in his personal problems / life.

Trademasters Service, Inc.
5.0
Timely, friendly, professional, effective each time! Trademasters have helped with doing emergency repairs for our heat pump during a winter cold blast - they arrived within 20 minutes, after hours and provided effective repairs (temporary fix while waiting for actual repair parts to get in) that prevented us from having to move into a hotel. Having to pay the extra after hours fee was well worth it! They also provided effective repair of our wall-hung, in wall tank Geberit toilet. Few plumbers know how to handle this type of European style toilet but it was no problem for Trademasters!

Potomac Plumbing & Gas Inc
5.0
Brandon Counts, the owner of Potomac Plumbing & Gas, was fantastic. He rearranged his schedule to take care of us as we were with out Hot Water. His customer service is top notch. He is polite, courteous and cares about his clients. Beyond replacing the water heater in just a few hours, he provided advice on other plumbing issues in the house. He took the time to walk us through the repair and explain the difference in the quality of the water heater he uses. You can tell by the attention to detail of his repair that he is a true craftsman. Brandon will be our first chioice when calling a plumber in the future.

ARS / Rescue Rooter Laurel
3.0
We had a water main break and a lot of companies won't do that kind of work. ARS / Rescue Rooter Laurel - 8551 replaced the pipe from the road to the house. They also installed a new water heater. Out of several companies that came ARS Rescue Rooter had the lowest estimate. The actual work that was done was fine. I didn't like everything that they did. They dug up the yard and when I said something about fixing it, I was told "Oh, don't worry, it'll be alright." Of course here it is nine months later and I've got to go out and buy dirt and fix all the places, which is going to cost me some money to re-seed and all of that. The pipe is guaranteed for 30 years or something, so I know that isn't going to break.

F.H. Furr Plumbing Heating AC & Electrical
5.0
The plumber was so good I had him come back later to look at a supply valve to the outside spigot that wouldn't close. I thought it was broken like the kitchen supply valve. He determined that it was just really tight and not broken and he as was able to get it closed so I don't have water in that pipe during the winter with the potential for it freeze and break the pipe again. On this second call he was at the house within a couple of hours. I'm very pleased.

Cardinal Plumbing Heating & Air Inc
5.0
Adam Daughtry from Cardinal Plumbing was great. Not only did he replace our broken water heater, but he identified an even more serious and dangerous issue with a damaged vent leaking carbon monoxide into our home. His diligence in checking the vents that lead into the water heater helped avoid serious danger and potential death from carbon monoxide poisoning for our family. Throughout the repairs his level of expertise and ability to explain what was going on and how to best fix it was fantastic. We'll be relying on Cardinal for all of our future plumbing needs.

Jiffy Plumbing & Heating, Inc.
5.0
Jason with Jiffy was great. He was early for the appointment and got right to work. Assessed the problem with our water heater very quickly and did the fix the same day (went out for a bit to get the part, but returned in short order). Hose bib was an easy, quick fix. Efficient, polite and fairly priced service. Would definitely use them again!

Water Heater Services LLC
5.0
I called in another highly rated contractor to replace a broken water heater, and they refused to do the job because of a code non-compliant flu pipe attached to the water heater. Curtis at Water Heater Services, however, reviewed the pictures I emailed him, made a visit to take a personal look, conferred with other technicians, and developed a solution for the problem. Very prompt, professional, and pleasure to work with. Price was very reasonable too. I would highly recommend.

Hollin Hall Plumbing
5.0
We've used Hollin Hall Plumbing twice and were very happy. Most recently, I think in February 2014, they came to fix a clogged toilet. They were responsive and fast. Around the end of 2013, we also called them about a broken hot water heater. We had been working with a larger company who had replaced our HVAC system (and we were generally satisfied with that), but with the hot water heater, they kept sending new people who all had different, increasingly expensive diagnoses/recommendations. We had been without hot water for two weeks and found the large company unresponsive. So we gave up, started over, and called Hollin Hall. They came immediately and found an inexpensive fix to the problem (which the large company hadn't even mentioned). Given that our water tank was really too small for our growing family, we opted to replace it with a bigger one rather than fix it. We were very happy with Hollin Hall's honesty and response. We'll definitely use them again in the future.

LEAHY PLUMBING & HEATING INC
5.0
I was thinking I needed to buy a new hot water heater, but Leahy plumbing was able to replace the part that rusted out and caused the 10 year old heater to stop working therefore it was a minor repair and at the same time they installed a rebuild kit in one of my toilets. I always use Leahy Plumbing, I manage a few rental properties in the area and I can always count on them, they are always responsive, good, and reasonable.

CM KING
5.0
Chris is exemplary in so many ways. I can't say I've ever met as honest of an expert tradesman in my life. He answers and returns calls quickly, and is usually early in arriving, always meeting his estimates. He won my loyalty about 10yrs ago. I had called another plumber for an estimate to fix a broken and leaking outdoor faucet. That plumber gave an estimate of $1100, and when I expressed an interest in a tankless water heater (which I'd done a lot of research on) he told me only someone stupid would install one. Chris fixed the faucet for about $200 and installed a tankless water heater after finding the right one for the application. When I got myself in over my head in replacing a sink, he promptly came out and only laughed with me, not at me. He and his assistants are professional, personable and hardworking. I recommend him to anyone who needs a master HVAC/plumber who wants a fair price and excellent work.

Nice Heating & Air
5.0
Francisco from NICE saved the day! Our hot water heater was on the fritz, and he came out on a Saturday night to diagnose the problem. Upon determining that we needed a new water heater, he came out promptly the next day (a Sunday, his day off!) to fix it. He was extremely helpful and worked through many obstacles to get the water heater replaced on an emergency basis. Other companies were saying it would take a week or more! I couldn't believe he came out two weekend nights in a row and had the heater heater in stock to replace for us. He even called us a week later to follow up and make sure everything was working the way it should. We definitely know who we will be calling next time! It was a tough situation, and Francisco was the best!!

Michael & Son Svc Inc
4.0
Bottom line up front: Our 14 year old water heater broke and needed to be replaced. Michael and Sons was able to replace it fairly quickly and get hot water restored to the house. The details: Several years ago, we were told our water heater was going, so this wasn't a surprise. When the water heater went, we called Michael and Sons for a quote. It was a Sunday, so they said they could dispatch someone for an emergency fee of $89, or we could wait until Monday. We ended up waiting until Tuesday (schedule issues on our end, not Michael and Sons) for them to come. Monday evening, the plumbing manager called and said that they would likely be there before our 2-6 time window because they only had a few appointments, which my husband said was unacceptable because one of us had to leave work early to be there for the 2pm appointment and we wouldn't be home before that. The manager agreed and said they would be there promptly at 2. The deal was that M&S would check out the water heater to see if it needed to be repaired, and if it had to be replaced, they travel with a water heater in the truck so they could immediately begin replacing it. After leaving work early to be home for the 2pm arrival, the salesman didn't arrive until after 4pm (he called at 2:45 and said he was en route and would be there "shortly"). He looked at the water heater for about 30 seconds, never discussed repairs, and asked if we wanted to replace it tonight. Seeing as he drove up in a sedan, which obviously doesn't have room for a water heater, I was pleasantly surprised. The price quoted was higher than other quotes I had received. After reading other reviews on Yelp and Angie's List, I assumed I was going to get an even higher quote, but it was acceptable to me, as they were on site already and promised to get the water heater replaced that night. They also tried to upsell me into HVAC and electrical services while they were there for an additional $400. No thanks. The salesman then called the technician to see if he even could replace it that night (would have been nice to check prior to the appointment when he said they could do it). When the tech confirmed, the salesman couldn't give me an estimate on the tech's arrival other than "he's finishing up another job and will come here after." The tech arrived about an hour later. He was professional and replaced the water heater in about 2.5 hours. I wish we could have selected a different brand of water heater, but M&S only seems to stock State brand. For a similar cost, I could have had a better model of a Rheem hot water heater installed, but it was my choice to go with M&S because they were already at my house. All in all, I have hot water again, but my interaction with M&S's sales staff, the miscommunication on timing, and the miscommunication on the person showing up actually having a water heater on them, was pretty lukewarm.

We were unable to find pros for your Water Heater Repair project in Ashburn, VA

However, we may have pros in another category that can help with your project.

Water heaters fall into two predominant categories: tank and tankless. Costs for operating, maintaining and repairing each type vary widely, but in general, tankless systems are ideal for additions, vacation homes, and guest bathrooms, while tank water heaters can keep up with a household's daily demands. 

What are common issues that require water heater repair?

Being nearly equal parts electrical and plumbing, water heaters are installed, maintained and serviced in roughly equal parts by both electricians and plumbers. Angie's List has compiled a list of common problems:

  • Running out of hot water — A tankless heater heats water on demand so seldom runs out of hot water, but a too-small tank heater could be a problem in a busy household
  • No hot water — By far the most common complaint, a lack of hot water could be anything from a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker to a snuffed-out pilot light
  • Noises — Sound travels through both pipes and water, so any temperamental water heater will be heard loud and clear

Generally your first call for a balky water heater will be to a plumber, but if the plumber finds an electrical issue, you may need to call in a licensed electrician. 

How much will water heater repair near me cost?

Tank or tankless water heaters cost between $216 to $903 to repair, with an average cost of $552.

Because the costs vary so widely, be certain you are getting a qualified repair person to look at your water heater. A problem one contractor might solve with an inexpensive replacement of a sacrificial anode could inspire another, less scrupulous contractor to solve by recommending a brand new (and expensive) water heater.  

How do I find the best hot water repair contractor near me?

You can rely on the above list of water heater repair companies to find the top contractors near your home or business. You can also ask friends for the names of trustworthy plumbers or electricians, consult the Better Business Bureau and/or contact local license agencies.

No matter how you locate a water heater repair technician, make sure the contractor is qualified to do the job safely. Expect proper state licensing and evidence of insurance. Look for a contractor who has local roots, in case you need a followup visit. 

Be prepared to pay slightly more for emergency service or late-night repair work, plus charges for repair parts, supplies, and the service call itself. Many plumber outfits offer maintenance agreements on expensive appliances like water heaters, saving money over time.
