Randy is a very pleasant and competent handyman. No job is too small nor too complicated for him. He fixed an exhaust fan above the stove for me. He installed a new ceiling fan with lights as well. All done very well. My husband and I are completely satisfied with his work and would highly recommend him.

    I own a home and have a garage apartment I rent out, I have had First Coast Plumbing do many thing for me in the past 20 years, clean out pipes from the kitchen septic tank, install hot water heater, repair leaks, install new fixtures, replace sub-pump, re-pipe pump house and aerator, replace toilets, and repair our sprinkler system, and more. Mr Appleby was always so polite, professional and worked hard to get everything done in a timely manner. It is hard to find someone you can trust to be fair and can trust in your home whether you are there or not, I would not call anyone else but First Coast Plumbing. I can trust them.

    Fast responses. Quality work. Great customer service. Everything we do is guaranteed. My name and my face is my guarantee. My grandfather was the most liked man that ever spoke a word in the state of Virginia. Where my sisters brothers cousins and even there friends we're showered in gifts and money. My grandfather only gave me one thing in my whole life. That thing was a future. When he wasn't shopping for my money hungry siblings he was teaching me how to get dirty work hard and long days how to burn myself with a torch or how to work wet and cold. How to break something and how to fix it. And how to be a great plumber and treat people with respect and how to talk to them. He taught me how to help someone and how to not expect in return. And my gift to him is 8 grandkids that are happy healthy and smart, and 3 promises. 1. that'll fight and love my family, 2. Ill never root for the Cowboys, 3. Ill bust my ass and knuckles, and do it fairly. Treating everyone as if they shared my blood. And I will not break that promise. Haven't yet. Thru the good and times and bad. Rich or poor, I've never had someone say they werent happy with my work or price. My reputation feeds a family. I don't have to make signs or pay for commercials. Im new to Florida but I like it here and I'm gonna stay. So when I'm done with your house I'm gonna need you to give my name and number to someone else. So I'm gonna try to impress you. Make you like me and all my tattoos. And I will. Unless your just a hateful whiny drama king or queen. If u are don't call me. Cuz no one can make u happy. And I dont have time to try.

    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.

    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.

    How much do new water heaters cost?

    The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

    Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

    The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
