Great job!

Came to HD after a plumber contracted by my home insurance collected his initial service fee and never returned to do the job. My insurer refund the total amount of the repair, which didn't quite cover the equipment and permit costs. But no matter - HD saved the day. On time, at the agreed on price, with a fully compliant installation. Great job?

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to common water heater repair questions

How do I know if I need to repair my water heater rather than replace it?

It often comes down to the age and overall condition of the existing water heater. You should read through the symptoms listed below and consider a diagnostic examination. If the water heater is outside the warranty period or the repairs are extensive, we recommend that it be replaced rather than repaired.

Is there a fee for an in-home visit?

Yes. A flat diagnostic fee will be charged when the installer comes out and assesses the situation. The diagnostic fee will be credited toward the final cost of the repair.

What does an in-home visit include?

After scheduling an appointment, which includes an in-home diagnostic fee, our professional installer will examine your water heater. The installer will review the findings and recommend any needed repairs and provide a quote for the final cost of repairs. At that point, you'll have the choice to proceed with the repairs, decline the repairs, or replace your water heater completely.

Can the hot water heater repair be completed the same day as the diagnostic?

Repair or replacement work can be executed the same day as a diagnostic in-home visit if you call before noon and the installer has the parts on hand. The diagnosis and repair should not take more than 1 to 2 hours.

Is the repair work guaranteed?

Yes. Home Depot warrants the workmanship of the repair, maintenance, and installation for 90 days from the completion date. During the warranty period, a Home Depot professional will repair the hot water heater at no charge to you, including any defects, due to faulty workmanship. Home Depot’s warranty does not cover damage caused by abuse, misuse, neglect, or improper careor cleaning. Merchandise and materials are covered exclusively by the manufacturer’s warranty.
