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.

The owner called me and set up the cleaning the following day which fit well within our schedule. They showed up a few minutes early after calling first to ensure that it would be alright with us. Our worker, Sean, did a great job and worked non-stop for well over two hours ensuring the vents were cleaned and the job met our expectations. As a side note, I contacted my air conditioning contractor who also cleans air ducts to get a bid. Their bid was in the range of $700 so the savings through Air Duct Professionals was significant. And the work was excellent.

Working with Sam was one of the best contractor experiences that I have ever had. He was respectful, honest and took the time to explain everything as it was being done. Instead of installing a new air conditioner at a significant cost , as was suggested by another contractor, I paid a reasonable fee to have mine tested, overhauled and am enjoying COOL air....aaaah. Thanks Sam!

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.

Jose and his crew did great work with my air conditioning needs. Quantum was able to provide high quality duct work replacement and added freon to one of my AC units. They work fast and efficient and for a fair honest price. I would recommend them to anyone who wants the job done right by honest and polite crew.

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.

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!

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.
