My husband and I had a leaking main pipe. We had three companies come out, one of them being Aire Rite. David came out for the estimate, which was free. He was awesome. He explained everything clearly, he was easy to talk to and he seemed like someone that we could work with. His bid was $1000 dollars less than the lowest of the other two bids! We hired David. Him and his brother, Tommy, who was also just as cool, came out and they replaced our main pipe. They did the work in one day and everything went great. The company offered the option of financing, so that was a plus. They also stayed a few extra minutes while we asked them a bunch of questions about other plumbing, heating and air things. That was great considering they probably wanted to go home and clean up! I would definitely recommend them and we will be calling them for other jobs we need done in the future. Thanks guys!

Wouldn't you know it, my A/C unit went out over a very hot Labor Day week-end while we had company visiting from out of state, UGH! The guy I usually called for such issues wasn't available till Thursday. I put out a repair request on Thumbtack and JC came to our rescue within a couple of hours. Jose was a real professional. He immediately discovered the problem, which was a bad blower motor. He was able to replace the motor and had my AC running again in no time. What a relief! Jose was prompt, friendly knowledgeable and reasonably priced. I would definitely call him agan for my heating and air conditioning needs.

Contacted Elite contractors for an air conditioning repair. Our air-conditioning started leaking a couple days ago because of the crazy heat. Called them Monday, and they were able to send out a tech same day in the evening but worked better with my schedule for the following day. They came promptly at 10 am as promised. Profession, and polite. He fixed the clogged drain pipe and replaced the vent filter ( something I didn’t know needed maintained regularly. Can’t believe I was breathing that!!! ) great service. Will definitely be using them again.

These guys installed a new furnace in our house after it died last week. They were extremely fast in ordering, coordinating install and installing the new unit. They even waited for the first hour of operation after install in case of anything going wonky. The guys on site were professional and courteous. I recommend for any AC or heating issue that might arise!

Could not ask for better. I had issued with my air conditioner since it was installed. I paid over 18,000 dollars for this junk and 3 years could not get cold air from it for more then 2 hours. I had freeze ups and leaks every time I used it for more then 2 or 3 hours. no company could figure out the problem. I paid over 1500 just for diagnostics and bunch of tests without any results. finally I found this people who really know what the hell they are doing! solved my problem in a day! now I have my AC back and my life back! thank you Mike's Air!

Guillermo made a same day visit to help me assess and evaluate the need for a replacement air conditioner. I needed a second opinion and he offered to give me an honest assessment of the problem. He explained what is necessary and in a way that I could understand. He is approachable and very professional!

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.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

How often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
