How Michael & Son determines your repair quote

  • We look at what's wrong with the unit. When a water heater breaks, one or more parts may be the culprit. Tankless water heaters have less parts and are usually easier and cheaper to repair than tankless water heaters.
  • We estimate the amount of time for a job. Once we know what the issue is, we can accurately determine how long it will take to complete the repair. The number of hours gives us the total labor cost for each job.
  • We look at the status of a system's warranties. Warranty status is a major factor in calculating your estimate. If parts and labor warranties are valid on the system, you may not have to pay out of pocket for repairs at all.


Your water heater repair in four easy steps

  1. Schedule your repair

    You can give Michael & Son a call at (800) 948-6453 or use our online schedule form to get in touch with our customer service department. From there we'll schedule out and confirm your appointment with one of our expert plumbers.

  2. Meet your expert plumber

    The day before the appointment, Michael & Son will call to confirm the scheduled time with you. We'll also send an email with your plumber's bio, photo, relevant trade licenses and a fun fact about their background. You'll feel like you know them long before they come a knockin' on your door.

  3. Get your water heater working again

    Cold showers? No thanks! Our plumbers will work fast to get your hot water turned back on. While we're working in your home, we'll protect your flooring with shoe covers and lay down drop cloths wherever we're working.

  4. Let us know how we did

    Your opinion sincerely matters to us. That's why our plumbers will always ask you to provide feedback after they complete the repair on your water heater. This is also the perfect time to let us know if something went wrong, so we can quickly remedy the situation!
