Great technicians - recognized the issue is not in their realm of expertise. Tried to fix it and even put in a new part to try and remedy the issue but no-go :-( I appreciate that they tried and followed up with me to let me know that they could not address this. GREAT professionalism and i would definitely call them again.

Easy to work with. Does quality work. Came on time and finished on time. Price was economical. Shalomi presented us with options for the project and answered all questions as they arose. HVAC work, rodent proofing and sealing of our home was what was done.

I can't agree more with all of the five star reviews below. We bought our house 2 years ago and the air conditioning unit only worked in the upstairs area. When Sam the technician came to the house he found multiple issues. Basically like many other people have stated,duct problem , the people who built the house had cut corners and in some instances didn't even build the house up to code. We had a leak from the AC unit because it did not have an external drain etc. Sam made multiple recommendations, understood our budget and tried his best to work within it. We completed what we could last year and this year when he did the annual service he completed the rest. and clean our furnace. He really is passionate about his work and I feel he is a very honest business man, which we all know is something that can't be said very often now a days. I really feel that if you need HVAC work done in the bay area, and you are looking for someone who is going to do a great job without cutting corners than Healthy duct cleaning should be the place for you.

Max and Beto are both highly recommended to do all your plumbing and Hvac projects. They deserve a 10 star rating. I cannot thank them enough for all the work they did to install our tankless water heater. Not only are they very professional but did a clean job and very good price.

Joshua and his team recently replaced my old furnace with a new one in our “new” home. I feel obligated to write this review because I feel like he went above and beyond to help me! He not only was a talented technician but also had a strong desire to help. More importantly to me, he had great patience to listen to my concerns, and tried his best to address them! Actually, my old furnace was not that old – it was put in by the previous owner about 10 years ago. The reason why I wanted to replace it was because I had to remove asbestos in the furnace room before we move in. As a father with a daughter who had asthma in the past, air quality of the old furnace was a big concern to me. Joshua left a big impression on me on his first visit. He spent time to understand the current setup, patiently listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I may not the easiest client to work with. Being an engineer myself, I tend to ask a lot (I really mean a lot) of questions. (One time, I had a contractor who didn’t want to work on my project because I asked too many questions. LOL.) After the first visit, I gathered a lot new information about the old setup, and found out that the old return plenum was not sealed, which means the old furnace was drawing air from inside walls and furnace room. Joshua assured me that he would seal the return plenum when he put the new one in. Joshua and his team continued to impress me on the job day. Joshua spent a lot of time to build a properly sealed return plenum piece by piece. Because it was such a small room to work in, he got some duct sealant on himself. But that didn’t bother him a bit. He just focused on building his prefect return plenum. I was totally impressed by his dedication. He and his team did a great job in putting the new system in. On a personal level, Joshua is super nice guy to talk with. We had great conversations with many random topics. I am so glad that I worked together with Joshua on my furnace room project. Thank you, Joshua! You are the best!

Dave and his team went way above and beyond anything I expected. “Normal” contractors have been hit or miss on this service. Dave and Heavenly stepped up and stayed after hours just setting up my service appointment for an emergency HVAC repair. I never write reviews, and have a strict standard when dealing with people. However, the service they provided compelled me to let everyone know what a great company this is, and how much they are willing to help.

Carlos did a great job installing and setting up our Nest thermostat. We have an older furnace and debated whether to install a C wire for dedicated power. Carlos provided a thorough assessment on whether we could pull new wire, as well as in connection proper thermostat location. He even took the time to consult on issues with air output through certain vents. Carlos is extremely knowledgeable and provides quality work at reasonable prices. We will definitely be using him for our HVAC needs going forward. Highly recommended.

JR and his team were FANTASTIC! We had a fully occluded dryer vent that we thought just needed cleaning - as it turns out, it had been poorly installed and completely busted! JR found a great solution to re-route the vent, and it looks great! We also had his team add in a heating system vent cleaning-- they were so thorough with our very dirty ducts!! Work was done with high quality and for a great price! Highly recommend this company!!

I had a great experience working with Zef, who is knowledgeable, cheerful and punctual for his work. I hired Zef and his team for a new AC system at my townhouse. He was flexible to work with my time and provided me with the best value solutions. His work is also clean and quick. I would highly recommend Zef to anyone who is looking for HVAC services and installations

Denny was a fantastic HVAC contractor. My husband is a general contractor and we recently relocated to SF. Denny installed anentire single family home new HVAC system (we remodeled down to the studs) and was highly professional, hard working, and delivered excellent work on time. We'd highly recommend him for anyone looking for HVAC work and we will definitely use him again on future projects.

Superb! After looking around and getting multiple estimates we finally found the perfect company for the job. Ricardo, the owner of Bayhill Heat and Air is a very honest guys, he runs a very professional and well rounded company. What he promised is what he delivered. He ensures the work is done to exceed the customer's expectations and especially his own (which is way beyond what I was expecting). The crew came, worked nonstop to deliver the system on time and everything looked unbelievably good. They didn't cut any corners to make it perfect. Thanks Ricardo (and team) , your company is the best HVAC company in town, hands down.

Professionally and well executed thru entire process. I got five estimates. A1 was upper middle, but my experience and value of their deliverables justified the price. I would definitely refer them to anyone. FYI my installers were Oscar and William ( very professional/respectful/meticulous), Sales - Jerry, & Brad (COO?). Christina on the phone was helpful as well. They have a good team. Summary of work done: Replaced 48 year old furnace in garage closet shared with water heater. Replaced old ducting. Installed new Trane XV80, 2 stg, 100K BTU, ducting, bubble wrap insulation. Took away all old stuff. $5500 (incl taxes, inspection...). I probably got some discount. All five bids ... lowest 2800$, Highest 7200$, middle were 5000-5500. Great job guys!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.
