SDAC got right back to me with a price and were available even over the holiday weekend! He arrived on time and trouble shot the problem and fixed it right then. He checked the system to make sure it was working well . They are honest and only charged for the necessary repair. It cost so much less than I expected. I felt very comfortable with him in my home and would most certainly call SDAC again for any related service. I was very impressed with the service!

I saved for months for a new HVAC system and then called the HVAC company that gave me the original diagnosis to have my HVAC replaced. They never replied or called backed so I contacted TCS. Turns out, no new system was needed! The TCS tech came out, cleaned my system, with a few other minor fixes and HVAC starting working again at a fraction of the cost! I would recommend TCS. They are reliable and are super honest, which is hard to find. Thanks TCS!

I was impressed with Five Star HVAC. They arrived on time and diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes. When their estimate on the time to get a replacement part went longer than thought, they immediately called with the new timeline. That said, they had the part on sure within an hour and in place 5 minutes later. I greatly appreciate they did not try to up sell a nee a/c unit. I'd use then again.

Installation of HVAC system on a historic home remodel went off without a hitch. Brad's team was friendly, efficient, and provided excellent recommendations on vent locations, etc. Will definately use them on our next project.

Air Plus Heating, Cooling, & Solar was the third of three bids I solicited to replace the c. 1980s furnace in our rental property. Rhonda Mayes, the scheduling coordinator (my description) was very quick about setting a convenient meet with Danny (to do the initial survey so as to create the materials list). As it turned out, Air Plus's bid turned out to be the lowest with an all-inclusive pricing in order to avoid any confusion. Offering to pay in cash, I even got a discount that could offset at least some of the sales tax. The installation was scheduled the following week. Andrew and Ed arrived on time the day of the installation. They were very efficient and very quick, even finishing a bit earlier than scheduled. By the time I arrived, they were almost done cleaning up and have already instructed my tenants as to the furnace's proper operation. It was great doing business with Air Plus as they used Trane products (while I'm no HVAC expert I do know the reputation of Trane products), they are friendly and easy to work with from Rhonda to Dan and to Andrew and Ed. And they were all very knowledgeable, from the contracting aspect to the technical aspect. Overall a great company to do business with!!

Danny assessed the work to be done, took care of it, and even helped give me some suggestions on other odds and ends things completely unrelated to this job. Also, I did not understand that the existing pipe within the wall was already code compliant. He could have taken me for a ride replacing that pipe and charging me thousands and I'd have never known better. He was straight forward with me that the pipe in the wall is correct, and only the short run of pipe running from the water heater to the wall needed to be replaced.

The motor in my furnace went out. The problem was diagnosed immediately by Lane and the work was done in short order. He and his crew are extremely professional and clean. He gave me such a great deal, it was half of what the other companies quoted. From now on I'll be calling Hutchinson!

    David was amazing! First off, he went out of his way to find me the most affordable HVAC system. He found us a great deal and even got it cheaper through his contractors discount. His lead tech Raad is also an amazing guy, he is the one that actually did the install. These guys know what they are doing, they make a great team. We are enjoying our cool a/c as i write this review! Thanks David and Raad!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is an HVAC system?

    The letters in HVAC stand for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. An HVAC system enables you to regulate your home or building’s internal temperature (thermal control) for comfortable living and working. You can bring heat levels down in the summer and up in the winter, keeping your home or office livable year-round. HVAC systems can also help with humidity levels and regulate indoor air quality in a home or office. There are many types of HVAC systems and technologies available.

    Many homes have a forced-air HVAC system. Both the heating and the central air conditioning units share a ductwork system where they either push in or pull out warm or cooled air. There are also heating and cooling systems that don’t require ductwork — such as ductless mini-splits — but work on the same principles of heat exchange. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670, with costs varying depending on the work you need done and the equipment you are installing.

    How much does it cost to get central air?

    Prices for central-air HVAC systems will vary. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670 but can run as high as $5,000 or even $12,000 depending on the capacity you need and other factors. Installing central air conditioning requires an entire system that works together to draw hot air out of your home. The system includes an outdoor unit, which houses the condenser and compressor, and the evaporator coils. If you don’t have an existing duct system, ductwork will need to be installed, which will affect labor and material costs. Leaking or damaged ducts will also need to be replaced.

    How many years does HVAC last?

    The number of years an HVAC system lasts depend on the type and brand of components that make up your system. The lifespan of an air conditioner averages between 15 and 20 years. The life expectancy of a tankless water heater is approximately 20 years, while a storage water heater is closer to 10-15 years. Ducts may need replacing within 10-15 years. Your equipment will have a longer life if you have regular tuneups and maintenance to keep everything in good working order. If you’re having repair problems and your HVAC system is over 10 years old, it’s a good time to consider the costs and benefits of repairing vs. replacing. Energystar.gov provides the following tips to help you decide whether to repair or replace:

    • Your HVAC system needs frequent repairs and your energy bills are increasing.
    • Your cooling or heating equipment is less efficient.
    • Rooms in your home are too hot or too cold.
    • Your heat pump or air conditioner is more than 10 years old.
      • Replacing your system with an Energy Star-certified unit could save up to 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills.
    • Your furnace or boiler is more than 15 years old.
      • You may choose to replace your system with an Energy Star-certified furnace (which is 15 percent more efficient than a conventional furnace) or an Energy Star-certified boiler (which is 5 percent more efficient).
    • Your home has humidity problems.
    • Your home has excessive dust.
      • Leaky ducts can pull particles and air from attics, crawl spaces and basements and distribute them throughout your house. Sealing your ducts may be a solution.
    • Your heating or cooling system is noisy.
      • You could have an undersized duct system or a problem with the indoor coil of your cooling equipment.
    • Your score on the Home Energy Yardstick is below five.
      • That means your home energy use is above average and you're probably paying too much for your utilities.

    How much does it cost for a new air conditioning unit?

    If you’re ready for a new air conditioning unit, it’s time to start exploring HVAC prices. The price will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you buy and its cooling capacity. Window units, which require minimal installation, are one of the most affordable options on the market. If you’re purchasing from a big-box store, you can expect to pay approximately $120-$1,000 for a window unit. Window units are appealing for their quick setup and relatively low cost, but they can use more energy over time than central air and only cool the room in which they’re installed. Portable air conditioners don’t have the cooling power of a window unit, but they do have the perk of being transportable from room to room. Expect to pay between $225 and $800 for a portable air conditioner, on average. For a whole-house air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork), the cost from a big-box store can range from approximately $2,000 to $4,000 or more. If you don’t have (and don’t want to put in) ducts, a ductless mini-split air conditioner is a good option, although pricey up front. Pricing can range from $650 to $4,250 per unit on average; you’ll need one unit for each room in which you want temperature control.
