If you are looking for an estimate to get the cost for your plumbing project, heating or cooling replacement, new installation or any renovation that you are planning.  If you plan to get a quote or just something quick that you need to modify, like re-piping or a quick water heater replacement or sump pump and on and on there are certain steps that you can take that affect the price and the quote you will receive from any plumber, HVAC company or any type of job that requires more than a quick repair. Usually these kind of jobs require planning and take more than a few hours.  Some of them might need to file a permit and conduct inspections, some not, but i have a few points to make in order to understand how plumbers or any heating and cooling company thing when they give you a price in order to save you money and time, especially when it is a big project.

  • The price of any jobs is mainly determined by the time that the plumber needs to spend on the project, the cost of parts and materials that need to be used, risks that need to be taken and other fees, like filing permit fees for the towns, inspections and other violations you might have in the project.
  • Plumbers like to get in and out. The less time we have to spend on your project the lower your price will be, and we like to arrange everything beforehand so we can just deal with getting the job done, especially when it comes to installation.  A new installation requires a lot of preparation, it may even involve construction with other sub-contractors, to prepare walls, floors and ceilings in order to install a new gas line, HVAC ducts, hot and cold water pipelines or drain pipes, condensers or furnace, all need to have prior work done in order to install and to start the process.
  • The time is usually calculated based on how many hours the plumbing company needs to put into the project.  When you work with our plumbing, heating and cooling company we give you a flat rate no matter if the job ends up taking more time you will not be charged more for something that we planned.
  • No one’s like to touch other people’s messes, and I am mainly referring to situations where a previous plumber was at a client’s home or building for repair or replacement and has done a poor job, especially when a job failed an inspection so and go backwards is more of a hassle than just putting a new one and in this kind of situation we try to help our clients.
  • Some homeowners or building operators try to fix things themselves, if you do not fully understand how to fix or repair and follow manufacturer guidelines, please do not touch as it has happened that instead of one problem you will create a second or third one and the days of banging on the TV to get reception back are gone.
  • Anything along the way that may cause a delay to get started, a room with toys on the floor that need to be cleaned up, furniture or appliances that need to be removed, washing machine and dryer, dishwashers, counter tops, ovens, ranges, refrigerators, things that are in the way and there is no room to move them or technically any items that we need to go through will influence the price lower or higher and you want to make sure that at least from your end everything is clear so we can get started quickly and finish quickly.
  • Any non-visible items like pipes that burst in the wall, frozen pipes, outdoor or indoor, have layers that need to be removed in order to access them.  Any electrical wiring, lights, outlets or switches that are in the way, air ducts inside the wall, floor or ceiling, plumbing pipelines that go through studs, gas freon that is leaking from air conditioning pipes that go through walls and ceilings, even from a different floor, from a basement to an attic are all items that we need to dig, troubleshot and crawl, go under a floor or above a ceiling to investigate.  It may take time to find the exact plumbing problem, heating problem or cooling problem that caused your system to fail.  A good plumber can minimize this time to usually less than 30 minutes, so you want to choose an experienced plumber to lower your costs when you get a quote and get started and finish quick.

Evaluating the Risk in Every Plumbing Project and Heating and Cooling Projects

  • For minor jobs usually a plumber will be able to fix the problem within a couple of hours.  The longer the project and the more hidden things found in the process, like underground water leaks that need to be fixed, or any unknown issues create some level of risk in order to get the problem fixed. The experience of any plumber company or heating or cooling company is the key to lowering the risk and straightforward up front pricing will protect you so you know what you are going to pay, and your quote and price will stay the same, usually with no surprises.
  • Here is what we advise you when you start your plumbing heating and cooling project and you are looking for a quote:
  • 1. Look for a recommended plumber, heating and cooling company.
  • 2. A good plumber has a success record with clients, replacing, installing and repairing with thousands of clients and different types of projects.
  • 3. An experienced plumber or heating and cooling company will show you things quickly, with no hesitation. There will narrow down the options and tell you exactly what is going on.
  • 4. Look for the short time! A plumber or heating technician that show up on time is the first sign of a serious plumbing company that will be reliable to get things done.
  • That’s called starting on the right foot.
