I hired David on to power wash my patio, hook up my washer/dryer, fix a drain, change filters on my reverse osmosis, and a couple of other small jobs. He completed all to my great satisfaction and was very friendly and conscientious. His cost was also very reasonable and I am already planning on having him back! I highly recommend David!!

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

    You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

    A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

    How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

    Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

    How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

    Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
