Amazing! We had James as our service tech. We had a bad smell coming from our ducting for a week. I had another HVAC company come out and quoted me $540 to replace ducting that had been ripped open by a animal. James not only clean all of our floor ducts, he cleaned our furnace, all of our floor vent covers and dryer ducting. He also went under my house (we live in a manufactured home) and took pictures of all of our ducting which was completely in tact and had no rips in it at all!!! He was very professional, super nice go my 2 year old, and was overall very nice. I would absolutely use this company again. Oh did I mention that I live in el cajon, ca and james drove all the way from lake elisnore! He was done quickly and cleaned up after himself. Will forsure use them again! Thank you James for your service!

I highly recommend Sam. He came within a few hours of my request, charged only the basic service fee, gave me lots of maintenance information for my LG appliances. I plan to hire him again for HVAC and some electrical repairs.

I would highly recommend this contractor/business to anyone interested in their AC services. From the start of negotiations, through he final install, Tommy (owner) was professional and informative on walking me through the entire system. Along with that, he and his crew of workers were very kind and patient with me and my family members during their entire visit and installation process. Again, this company represents professionalism to the tee!

David was great! He very thoroughly reviewed my existing HVAC package unit and traced the heating issue I was having with my Nest thermostat back to the Nest display itself. He also tested it with an existing thermostat. He also waited with me for over an hour for Nest support and gave them all the info so I could get a replacement.

I contact Subcooling HVAC and they came same day, diagnosed and fixed the problem with my A/C within an hour. The tech was very friendly and even inspected the rest of my system after he fixed the problem to ensure it was working at optimum capacity. Price to fix was fair and to be honest was way less than we expected. I would definitely recommend Subcooling HVAC to family and friends.

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.

Paul came next day and was right on time. He was extremely knowledgeable about the unit we had where other hvac technicians shyed away from the job claiming it was "too complicated". He found the problem right away and was kind enough to explain the unit to me and how it worked. It was a quick fix and now we have cold air again! I would reccomend Paul to anyone needing air conditioning repait.

We are very impressed with Moe of ProTech Mechanical!!! This young man was at our house within 1 1/2hrs of our call (he was finishing a job several miles away). He listened to my husband's thought on why our A/C stopped working (who has experience in the HVAC industry, arrived with part in hand and had us up and running within 2 hrs. Moe was kind, professional, and efficient. We called Service Champions first, but were told there was a 2 day lead time, and the person on the phone completely disregarded my husband's hunch on what the problem was with our A/C....wouldn't even listen.....Please give Moe your business if you want your A/C worked on, in an efficient, professional manner, and reasonably priced. He deserves a lot of business!

I hired Team All Star Construction to do multiple projects at my house. From the first time I spoke with Larry he made me feel at ease with the process. My house needed HVAC, Painting, Windows, a Patio Cover, a Roof and some Landscaping. Larry told me about the PACE program and I was able to finance all my repairs with no money down and now I just pay for it along with my property taxes! Well the work done was amazing, they work like a machine! Had couple hiccups but Larry jumped on them right away and exceeded my expectations! My house is beautiful now and I will recommend them to all my friends and family! They have a customer for life! Don't hesitate to use them, they are as good as it gets!

Both Danny and Michael (technicians) were very knowledgeable. They explained what was wrong with the AC in terms that I could understand. While their website boasts "same day service", the consult happened the same day I called while the repair happened 4 days later. Donald (call center) was very obliging and professional. Our AC now works very well and I learned how to care for it better. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for an honest company who won't try to upswell you or push products on you and also gives quality service.

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!

Overall very good experience. Hector is very honest. Got a good feeling about the company and in speaking with him. Pricing very reasonable. Overall clean work. Very responsive company. We had 2 entire HVAC and furnace systems replaced. Unfortunately furnace had a technical glitch in the system within the first couple of days. As soon as they found out the problem, someone came out to fix it immediately. Now everything is running smoothly. You never know with any product, if something might go wrong or a part may be recslled...so it’s important to have a company that is very responsive and ready to fix any problems encountered. We felt that we were in good hands.

I am honored to be Vern Hackett's first review... My German Shepherd puppy decided ripping the wiring from the central AC/Heating unit to the house was a fun idea, she ripped it out of the wall so bad that the remaining wires to connect weren't even visible. I got multiple service call quotes but Vern was the only one that gave me a rough estimate based on the issue not just what his service call would be. He came out the next morning, was extremely friendly and professional. While he worked he told me exactly what he was doing and checking and gave me best & worst case scenario as he went. Because of the nature of the damage any dishonest contractor would have easily been able to make me pay an arm & a leg thinking the whole thing would need to be rewired, I am grateful to have found Vern because even though it was not easy he managed to pull enough wire to connect to. I will definitely be a return customer and recommend him to friends & family. If you want someone reliable, knowledgeable, and honest then Vern is your guy!!!!!!

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
