A water heater isn't something that you want to worry about with your house. They are vital for many appliances, but they are also a bit tricky to install.

If you attempt to repair it on your own, you might end up making the problem worse if you are not familiar with the different elements that make up the unit. A specialist, similar to a mechanic works on water heaters daily; they will be well-versed in the ins and outs of your water heater.

When hiring a professional for a water heater replacement, repair, or any other service, you should know what you'll be dealing with. Here's a rundown of what you should know:

Hot Water Heater Repair Costs

To have someone repair your hot water heater, the cost can range anywhere from $200-$1,000.

The amount you pay for hot water heater repairs, will depend on the type of work required. As always, different locations have different costs. Meaning, the cost in Oregon will be different from Kansas.

The Tankless Water Heater

Since a tankless water heater doesn't heat up the water directly, it takes up much less space than a water heater with a tank.

The tankless water heater works by heating up cold water. When you turn on the hot water in your home, cold water is transferred to the water heater where it is heated by an electric element.

Hot Water Heater Replacement

When it concerns the hot water heater replacement, hiring a professional is extremely suggested and valuable.

An expert is most likely to understand specifically what they're doing so your hot water will work effectively. Plus, they can provide handy advice regarding maintaining the hot water heater. This will certainly end up saving you in the long run on repair services and replacements.

Kyle, was great! 800-PLUMBER called to say when he would arrive, and he was right on time. He even completed another job that wasn't planned on my end while he was there. I would recommend 800-Plumber to any of my family or friends. Laura Clear Lake

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.

Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.
