They did a professional and efficient work with an affordable price! They showed up on time. Called me 20 mins before arriving. Gave me some advises on the mold and the air conditioner issue after the carpet was cleaned. It’s useful for us to maintain. Appreciated. Our carpet was soaked of leaking water. There were obvious stains on it. They almost removed them. It literally cannot be removed completely I know. So I am pretty satisfied with their work. And 30 days warranty provided. Thanks. I worried that the price would jump up after they came. Some ppl did that…but not these guys. Keep up good work and I will definitely come back for them in the future when it’s needed.

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.

Fantastic to work with Joel Mayorga of Platinum Plumbing He was the first to respond to my work request. Answered every question almost immediately! I have tenants living in my home in Los Angeles & I live in Miami. I wanted someone I could feel confident with doing the work 3000 miles away. My tenants have been going without hot water due to ineffectual work by American Home Shield repairs My former TAKAGI tankless was never vented properly nor valves put on for easy maintenance. It was a 15 year old tank Joel described via this app exactly what I needed. I sent him photos so he could see the space. He offered me several options I decided to get a NEW Noritz tankless heater. He was at my leased home within 2 hours ; new heater & all necessary parts in hand! It was a big job but in a few hours; DONE! He returned the next day to make sure all was ok & water temp was holding. He even serviced my HVAC heater at no extra cost! Will I be using JOEL again?! YOU BET I will! Using him for ALL my heating & AC & plumbing needs!

I used this company to fix my air conditioning. I would turn the AC on and it would blow out air but there was not very cool and it was not cooling down my house. the technician sid determined that my ac had not been cleaned for a long time. he did a simple cleaning of the filters and put more freon in the unit.the AC was back to being very cold and the price was low. I appreciate his honesty because before when I had an issue a technician I hired tried to tell me that I needed a new unit and wanted to charge me to install a new unit. I highly recommend this company.

Perhaps you remember, on a very hot summery day. No air conditioning so you would go open the refrigerator door and stick your head in. Ahhhhhh. Only one thing would make it better: A fan inside the refrigerator pointed straight at your face. I thought my central air conditioner worked kind of ok, but it was 17 years old. The heater was 48 years old. So I decided to hire Titan Air to replace both. I was impressed Mark Fisher and with Chip Laurn when I met him. But I was super impressed on the day of installation when I met Robert and Chris. All their work is supremely professional and beautiful to look at. Robert explained that with the new unit there should be a larger intake, so would it be ok to cut the wall wider for a larger register? I said sure, wondering if air conditioning guys could really cut the wall, install a new register, and make it look like nothing happened? YES they can and yes they did. I can't even tell that anything happened there. Anytime I want to get wowed, I open the HVAC closet and look at the beautifully engineered and installed unit. And the really best thing is the air. If I stand right under the register the air comes out like that refrigerator - with the fan pointing at me. Just so lovely. I highly recommend the entire team at Titan Air. They're the best and really fun to chat with too.

Im very happy with job Attic Renew has done in my house. They did an excellent work in my air-duct system, the last cleaning was 5 years ago and when they inspected my system i had mold so they used mold control and sanitize my system, the technicians were responsible and knowledgeable about the service they provide, Im very satisfied with their job, and of course i totally recommend this company.

Ken Shipman from Perfect Climate and his staff were amazing throughout my project. The professional approach to our specific needs are beyond mention. We are extremely happy with our new Trane system and couldn't be happier with the amount of air we are now experiencing on our second story portion of our home. I highly recommend Perfect Climate to anyone seeking a new Air conditioning system.

Had multiple contractors come out to give us an evaluation/quote on our HVAC system. Everyone except TJ came in and started telling me what I needed without listening to what my problems and issues were with the system. TJ took the time to listen to what my issues were and recommended a couple solutions to fix. We ultimately replaced the entire system (compressor, furnace, etc) and added a new duct line and vent register. TJ rerouted the gas line to our furnace, relocated and hung the furnace in our attic, installed a smart thermostat in a new location, and more. His crew is very friendly and they all work quickly. They leave the work site cleaner than when they arrived which is so nice. Their quotes are very reasonable compared to what the other contractors were quoting. TJ even checked in the next week after everything was complete to make sure I was happy with the new system! I would highly recommend giving TJ a call for any and all of your HVAC needs.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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.
