Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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. 

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an HVAC technician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a technician for an HVAC repair or installation project, practice current social distancing guidelines. This may require remaining outside while the technician works or ensuring the technician can work in a sectioned-off area or outbuilding.

Comply with social distancing guidelines while the technician is performing work. Do not make physical contact with technicians, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, sanitize all involved spaces and surface and pay using a digital platform instead of cash or a check.

Can I use digital payments to pay for central air conditioning services?

The use of digital payment platforms -- like Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo and Square Cash -- is common among air conditioning technicians. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is improving the adoption of these platforms as a means of helping social distancing.

As you compare local air conditioning technicians online, contact them to see if they’ll accept digital payments. Also, discuss strategies for completing the job while complying with safety guidelines for reducing the risk of exposure.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Phoenix hvac professionals
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.

Jon responded with in minutes of my inquiry. He had technicians at my house later that same day. They diagnosed and repaired the issue all very quickly and affordable! I will definitely use J and J HVAC for future repairs and recommend them to anyone needing HVAC assistance.

Don came in on time. He expected to do 2 unit of HVAC maintenance in 2 hours, but took almost 3 hours and wrapped my outdoor tubes for free.

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.

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.

Needed to replace 3 old AC units in 2 different homes and received bids from multiple companies. Although Jon offered very competitive pricing, I was most impressed by his professionalism and prompt responses to all of my questions. Jon's installers were equally fantastic. They were on-time, courteous, and took the extra time to ensure things were done right. I have already recommended them to several friends and would not hesitate to hire them again for any HVAC work. Thank you!!!

Eric was outstanding! I was unable to be at the house during his appointment, so my realtor let him in. He sent me tons of photos, called and texted updates, and went out of his way to save me money wherever he could. His work quality, detailed knowledge of HVAC systems, dedicating to customer service, and high touch communication give him 10-stars in my book! My realtor even kept his number for future referrals. He's a top notch, highly knowledgeable and trustworthy professional!

Chris did an excellent job. I'm a property manager for a vacation rental unit and needed a brand new HVAC system. From the very start Chris was very prompt, professional, and did excellent work. I would highly recommend him to anyone and he will be my go-to guy for this type of work going forward. I actually I'm going to have him install a brand-new system for my own personal rental property. He's a very straightforward guy and does not play any games. The price that he quoted me is the price that it ended up being. That's very important to me and I'm sure to others. Do yourself a favor and give Chris a call. He's a family man and will take great care of you. Thanks Chris and I look forward to working with you again.

Though I haven't officially contracted J and J HVAC to do my air conditioning job, words cannot be minced on the upmost professionalism and honesty that this contractor exudes. From my first interaction with J and J, he was clear and precise on what he recommended for my system and listened to all of my hopes and desires from the job. The team that came out to measure and gauge the workplace were equally professional and were the only contractor (both commercial and small shops) that pointed out that the air handler is already rated for the new efficiency standards and we could truly get away with replacing just the unit outside. After 5+ 20K quotes, this was both shocking and awesome to hear. When I look to move forward with this project (next couple of months) J and J will be the company I work with, no questions ask. Contact them for your Heating and Cooling needs and prepare yourself for an awesome experience! Thanks Team and look forward to working with you guys soon!
