I was having problems with my hot water heater-- Wernier spoke with me over the phone and got one of his guys to come out to take a look the same day. Everyone was super helpful and quick-- I will certainly call Hernandez Heating and Cooling in the future. Excellent.

Jarrett is prompt, responsive, and did a tremendous job. I really appreciated his attention to detail and thoroughness. He took the time to leave everything cleaner and in better condition than he found it. We will definitely use Jarrett again in the future!

Jim and his guys are honest, hardworking, and very professional. I’m sure this comes from his many years in the Army. We had Jim remodel a powder room, power wash our concrete patio and sidewalks, and inspect our basement walls due to water entering into the basement. He provided us some insight and recommendations to fix the problem; he even reviewed the contractors estimate at no charge. Jim provides outstanding service. He is the first person we call when we need help with fixing something in our home!

    Tech Matt Smith came to perform a routine furnace/water heater/AC inspection. Extremely professional, friendly, personable, and very efficient. Matt suggested additional products but was not pushy about it. Inquired as to whether I had any other plumbing/heating/AC issues and completed his tasks in about 30 minutes.

    Tyler did a wonderful job of remodeling my kitchen including removing a wall and reconfiguring the water lines. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He has done numerous other projects around my home including remodeling our bathroom, moving our washer and dryer in the laundry room and installing a hot water heater. Tyler is kind and courteous and does a great job of cleaning up! I have recommended him to a number of people who have also been very pleased. I have attached some pictures of our kitchen.

    Dan responded to me quickly. He is very knowledgable of the HVAC system. He came to my house on the same day that I reached him. Dan checked, tuned up and turned on my electric central AC, gas heating furnace and gas hot water heater. They hadn't been used for two year when I purchased the house! Thanks Dan for the great and professional job. I do recommend you to use him when you need help.

    Mark did an awesome job for me, so good in fact that I've hired him to do a few more! He was on time, worked very quickly and did a great job. Mark replaced broken water pipes, installed toilets, removed a wall, sanded hardwood floors and so much more. He is honest and trustworthy and charges a fair price for his work. He also cleans up when he's done working. You will not regret hiring Mark, he is very good at what he does. AND... he's a veteran! I would be happy to give him a great reference... after he does a few more things for me, that is.

    I was installing subfloor heating in a rental unit and needed an expert to help me wire the mats and connect them to the circuit breaker under one thermostatic control. Brian was knowledgeable, personable, and affordable. Not only did he complete the job with skill, but he also took care to clean the debris. I would recommend Brian to my friends and will certainly hire him again.

    We have used Try-County Plumbing for many years (to replace a toilet, install a hot water heater, replace a hose bib, install kitchen and bathroom faucets, repair a water line, snake/camera/unclog sewer line, replace a large portion of exterior sewer line, repair a toilet, and install a new tankless water heater). Through all of these projects, Bob has always explained the issue and given suggestions/options for fixing it. We always appreciate that. He’s always been friendly and professional with us - never pushy and never made us feel pressured to purchase a particular service. Most importantly, we’ve always been happy with his work. That’s why we keep going back to him and why we’ve recommended him to our family and friends. We highly recommend Try-County Plumbing.

    Dave was excellent in explaining all the potential options, whether it was to repair or replace our hot water heater. He took the extra time to vet all solutions, while the others simply pushed replacement and price.

    You cannot find a better electrician than Ray. The prices and the workmanship are just barely outshined by the excellent customer service that you will receive. Ray is the type of guy who will help you if you are in need and his prices cannot be beat. I would recommend him over any of the big box commercial electricians who will rip you off. Ray did a full rewire on a house that i was renovating and was willing to work with me on instalment payments. He will be my electrician from now on and he should be yours too.

      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.

      How long is a water heater supposed to last?

      Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

      • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
      • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
      • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
      • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
      • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

      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.

      Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

      If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.
