Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good HVAC contractor in Phoenix?

Start your search for the best HVAC and AC contractors in Phoenix by comparing professionals online. Comparing local pros online is a quick and easy way to gain access to customer ratings, reviews and even photographs of real work done by the contractors. 

You should also spend some time researching the contractors’ credentials. For example, visit the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website to find out if any of the HVAC and AC contractors you’re considering have an active license.

Lastly, you need to gather several free estimates from the contractors. Compare the quotes you receive to decide on the best fit for your project. Just remember that you shouldn’t sacrifice quality in order to pay the lowest possible price. 

Do I need central air in Phoenix?

Central air conditioning can help you stay safe and comfortable in Phoenix, especially during the city’s hot and grueling summers. Staying cool is particularly important for vulnerable individuals such as the elderly, those with preexisting medical conditions and even those with pets. 

Contact the best HVAC pros in Phoenix so you can get free estimates and start planning your central air installation project today.

Why is my air conditioner leaking water?

An air conditioner leaking inside the house is a common problem. It could indicate that the air filter is dirty. Or, one of the following may be the culprit:

  • Clogged condensate drain line
  • Leaky, damaged, cracked or rusted drain pan
  • Dirty or broken coils
  • Frozen evaporator coils
  • Broken condensate pump
  • Not enough refrigerant
  • Disconnected drain line

If your AC is leaking, contact a repair service to find out what the problem is — and how much it will cost to fix it.

Can I install central air myself?

While you may be able to do some preparation work for central air installation, you should hire a licensed contractor to complete the project and handle the air conditioning refrigerants. 

Also, unless you have the proper credentials, you risk making common mistakes when installing central air. This may include installing the wrong-size furnace, improperly installing ductwork and exhaust systems, and incorrectly managing drainage.

To ensure your central air is installed correctly, contact the best HVAC pros near you and start getting free estimates today.

Does central air add value to a home?

A central air unit or HVAC system may add value to your home. Or, if you’re in the process of selling your home, it may help you close a sale.

The Remodeling Impact report found that 20% of realtors have suggested that home sellers replace their HVAC before attempting to sell their homes, and 7% said this project did help close a sale. 

Talk with an expert to figure out if adding an HVAC system is a good idea for your home. And contact the best HVAC pros near you to get free estimates so you’ll know how much this project will cost you.

Is it worth it to install central air?

Depending on where you live, it might be worth it to install central air. Central air makes your house comfortable on hot summer days. And although it’s hard to predict if adding central air will increase your home’s value, prospective homebuyers will certainly notice if it’s missing.

Another advantage of central air is that it can help dehumidify your home. Not only will it make your home more comfortable and enjoyable, but it can also  help prevent mold from growing or spreading.

Contact the best HVAC contractors near you to learn more about the central air installation process and to start receiving free estimates.

Do HVAC technicians offer remote or virtual services?

Because HVAC technicians need to be physically present to do their work, they have not conventionally offered remote or virtual services. However, with the importance of social distancing due to COVID-19, the need for remote capabilities is greater than ever. If you come across a profile that states the HVAC technician or AC professional is offering remote services, message the pro to find out what those services include.

Consult with your technician to see if the technician will be able to perform a video call consultation. You can find local technicians near you by searching online.

Does an HVAC technician need to enter my home?

Because most HVAC systems are located in the home, it’s likely that an HVAC technician would need to enter yours when working on the projects. However, there might be exceptions. Some HVAC systems are located in garages or in areas of the house that are sectioned off. During the consultation, ask your technician if they'll need to enter your home.

When you contact local technicians, ask if they’ll perform a video call in place of a traditional consultation. Be sure to send all materials like photos and documents digitally, and comply with all relevant guidelines.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a safe consultation or appointment with an HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by comparing technicians in your area in an online search. Message or call technicians to ask whether they can perform a consultation over the phone or even over a video call. This way, they can assess the problem without increasing the risk of virus transmission by visiting your house. 

If it turns out the service is essential, you’ll need to follow CDC guidelines as well as local government guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.

How can I find out if an HVAC technician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Currently, governments on both the federal and local levels are updating guidelines on what qualifies as an essential service. To see whether an HVAC technician is considered an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic, check your city or state’s government website. 

For federal guidelines, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors during the crisis. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Reviews for Phoenix hvac professionals

Rudy was very professional and recommended the most valuable remedy for my HVAC system.
Thumbtack Customer
Jon was extremely responsive, reliable, and easy to work with on this repair. He provided us the exact service we requested and could afford at the time and did not try to sell us a new system like has happened with other HVAC contractors in the past. We have already had him back for another HVAC repair on another property and from all indications he will be our go to person for HVAC P.M. and repair going forward.

Matt did an incredible job! I had an old HVAC Unit that didn’t work and he brought it back to life. A couple other HVAC pros told me that it couldn’t be fixed and Matt came in and saved the day! He saved me thousands of dollars. He is a miracle worker. Shows up on time the next day. Very professional, highly recommend.

J and J HVAC got the job done with no struggles. The technicians were wearing masks which is a plus for me. They got in and out and fixed my AC issues very well. Gave a 4 stars because I wish the response time for my messages, sometimes, was a bit faster, but they do not take forever to respond, they are quick just not as quick as I would like. I recommend J and J HVAC!

Outstanding! Emergency situation, heat advisory, house full of children, broken a/c in the middle of July. Talked to the office at 9pm, friendly and knowledgeable tech on our roof by 930pm, cold air blowing in our home by 10pm. Fast, efficient and affordable! Hands down the best experience with any hvac company.

I spoke with Keenan regarding an urgent need to fix an AC during the heat of summer in Phoenix. I was shocked when he said he’d be there in an hour. He thoroughly diagnosed our system which makes him stand above the crowd in this HVAC world. He immediately solved our issue and we are appreciative

Ken was quick to respond, honest, knowledgable and not the proverbial salesman attempting to sell unwanted parts. He called me to keep me informed, sent texts, pictures and videos of his work. I felt like I understood all that he was dong and why! I would recommend Ken to all seeking great HVAC service!

Very nice guys came and fixed my hvac. It wasn't turning on heat or cold. Replaced the thermostat and fixed some very bad rewiring from previous technicians. It's hard to find a good, honest people that will not spend an hour trying to upsell you the next thing. I would call J and J back anytime in a heartbeat.

Grade A+++! Thaddeus was very quick to provide me with a quote and continued to be extremely responsive. He’s very knowledgeable with over a decade of experience in the HVAC industry. He’s also very personable and easy to talk to. He didn’t pressure me in any way and was always ready to help answer any questions. Their prices are extremely reasonable too and quality products!! I highly recommend this business!
Simona V.
We bought a home in Phoenix a few years ago, only to realize that the ac does not work in half of the house. In the last year we've had a few larger hvac companies come out to figure out what was going on and they all presented us with expensive solutions without even looking at the unit or duct work. We found Sam last week on here and decided to have him come out for another opinion. He arrived when he said he would, he was very personable, and very thorough in checking out our system, as well as going into the attic and looking at the duct work. Sam also gave us some great tips on how to maintain our hvac system. We really appreciate the amount of time he spent with us and we look forward to having him get our system back to working properly and more efficiently.
