I have a home in Huntington Beach that had an existing furnace and ductwork. I wanted to install AC utilizing the existing system. I consulted with several HVAC contractors and received quotes. Mina was the most knowledgeable of the group of contractors, provided the best suggestions, and also had a very competitive price. During the installation the ductwork turned out to be in poor condition. Mina replaced the ductwork and only charged me the cost of material and not the labor. For anyone who has done contracting this in unheard of. Change orders are often outrageously priced. Mina is an honest man who does good work and cares about satisfaction with the job. If you have the opportunity to use Mina I highly recommend him. The system has been installed and running for 1 month and all continues to work great. Thank you Mina.

The saying you get what you pay for really means something with contractors. These are the first guys who have left my house and I have nothing to complain about! Great company! They show up on time. They do quality work and they layout a variety of options for you. They spend time talking to you so you know what your issue is and what you can do to fix the problem or how to move to upgrade which was what I choose to do. Couldn’t be happier. Love my new air conditioner. When I need a new water heater I know who to call. Not the cheapest not even the most expensive and they give you options to work out payments if needed. There is a reason they are highly rated.

Jose of JC Heating & AC Systems was great. He responded quickly, gave a thorough and honest assessment without trying to oversell services and a very reasonable price. We will call him next time we need HVAC repair.

David repaired the electrical that had shorted due to something from the original install. He does quick but very thorough work. He has much more to offer than just HVAC repair and I will definitely be using him again. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to work with a professional.

I wish all contractors were as responsive as Air-O-Stat. I had a small flood that blew out two furnaces. When I called that sent a tech out the next day and gave me a specific time for the appointment (rather than the normal some time between 12 and 5) and he was on time! They fully explained what was wrong and went to get replacement circuit boars and installed them immediately. I was a difficult issue to deal with since all the functioning parts of the furnaces had been under water but the fixed it quickly and were a delight to deal with. Will definitely use them exclusively in the future.

Wow, I've worked with a few HVAC companies before but this one is second to none. I hired them for routine maintenance for both of our units. One of the owners, Mark, was very responsive and reasonable over chat with Thumbtack and the phone when scheduling. Chip, one of the maintenance guys, was on time, courteous, and thorough! After a couple of hours of doing a full check up and tune up ok the system, he went over everything he looked at and called out a couple of things to take note of. No pressure to buy anything but did simply offer an annual maintenance plan that we signed up for. I wouldn't have done this if I hadn't been impressed with the whole experience.

We remodeled our kitchen with the help of Excel Construction. Before hiring them, we met with several other contractors which after our meeting with them, we decided to go ahead with Excel Construction because when we met Eyal, he had few previous projects that did match our vision and ideas and his estimate was in the range of our thoughts too. The remodeling included the demolition of the between the kitchen and living room remodeling the laundry room, bedroom and bathroom. He spent long time with us mainly on the design and the vision and offered several suggestions to make this project better while keeping it within budget. The working crew was excellent as well! Few sub-contractors were involved too they all were professional, hardworking people and trustworthy. We definitely love the results of the remodeling project! Excel Construction cares a lot for their client’s satisfaction! Thank you, Eyal!

I originally hired a different technician to come fix a leak coming from the emergency drain line on my HVAC. They made three trips here and couldn't fix the problem. They told me I'd need to completely reinstall my five year old HVAC. Then I had Andrey come out, and he was able to flush the line and have it working like new within an hour. A+ quality work. Thanks, Andrey!

Fantastic company. Simon is polite, communicative, and friendly. They did a great job installing a new central air system for me in my condo and gave me the most competitive price I've found. I'm very happy with this company - it's extremely difficult to find honest and reputable contractors nowadays, but HUS is definitely one you should add to your contacts.

Tom was fast, efficient, friendly and made sure to explain things as we went. We're keeping his card for future issues as he does HVAC and electrical. He also had all of the tools he needed as well as a replacement for the blown up part that we didn't even know we needed available. A great experience!

When my air conditioning system stopped working, I feared that a technician would tell me that it couldn't be fixed because it was too old. But I called Laith Frangoul of Honesty Cooling & Heating and much to my delight he really was exactly what his company name touts - HONEST! He arrived very quickly, found a bad condenser, had it in his vehicle and we were up and running in minutes at a very fair price! I was so thrilled that I hired him to do some preventative maintenance. He uses top notch modern equipment and he is obviously very knowledgeable. I own a commercial building and I plan to use him when we have HVAC issues. I am thrilled to have found Honesty Cooling & Heating and I highly recommend his services. The HVAC service industry is loaded with crooks and thankfully he is the exception!

My experience with Velavi, from removal of floor furnace to completed installation of furnace, AC, and duct work, was fabulous. There might be other companies that are equally as good, but I doubt you could find one that is better. The installation passed all tests by an independent contractor with flying colors. Our city building inspector was impressed by the quality of work. Get a quote. You won't regret it. The only problem I had was with Thumbtack. I was curious about their service, so I signed up as a customer. I already had requested four quotes based on Yelp reviews and decided to add one from Thumbtack. I was soon getting emails from five companies other than Velavi. Then I started getting update emails from Thumbtack on the status of the project. I ignored all the emails until the installation was done. At which time I was asked to write a review. They listed five companies to select from. Velavi was not one of the five choices I was given, so I looked for an option to unsubscribe. None. Now I am feeling like I do when phone solicitors keep calling me multiple times... "irrigated"... Thumbtack, if you are reading this, please unsubscribe me. Do yourself a favor. Give other dissatisfied customers the option of terminating the unwanted emails.

I loved working with Hyeco Air. They came to my house to move the HVAC Furnace from my garage to the attic. Many company's said it could not be done off the bat (maybe it was too much work for them and they wanted quick money.) Assurance: Hyeco Air came to my house, assessed th e job and assured me that the job could be done. Efficiency: He was highly efficient as it took him just 1 day to disconnect everything from the garage, move it to the attic and reconnect everything back. A job that takes some company's a couple days. Professionalism: Hyeco Air was punctual and professional. He provided astute input on how the process would be, and his recommendations. Value: I am a firm believer of paying for good work. I had no doubt that Hyeco's work was going to be anything less. His price was great for my budget.

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.

Who fixes furnaces?

If your furnace needs to be repaired, you’ll want to find a qualified heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) repair technician. Each state has its own licensing requirements; some require all HVAC technicians to have an HVAC license, while others only require someone operating an HVAC service and installation company with employees to hold a contractor’s license. For example, in Alabama, the Alabama Board of Heating Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Contractors regulates licensing, while in Kansas there is no state regulatory body and HVAC licensing can vary by region. For simple furnace repairs like changing out a filter, a trusted handyman can probably handle the job, but a trained professional should be hired for tasks like replacing a gas valve, installing a new inducer fan motor or other critical furnace repair jobs that involve dealing with gas leaks or other dangerous conditions. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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 will it cost me to replace my furnace?

The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.
