Derek arrived on time and was polite and focused on the task. He diagnosed the loud rattle / vibration we have in an HVAC vent -- determined the heater is otherwise working fine -- but wasn't able to eliminate the noise. Our vent cover is atypical (will require brute force removal, followed by repair/painting.) He recommended we hire a "handyman" who will have the tools to reach far into the vent to solve the problem. We were not charged for Derek's visit.

At 7:20 on a Saturday evening (the night before Father's Day) my wife told me to come home because the AC wasn't working. It was completely broken! I put out a request on Thumbtack and at 7:59 got a call from Smart HVAC....I missed it but he called me back 30 mins later and told me that he could come later. By 9:40pm my AC was back up and running and my whole family (especially me) was extremely happy. I was blown away by the Bajji's responsiveness. I will 100% call him again if I have any HVAC issues. Thank you!!

Kevin was great! He came in and resolved our problem after we were left hanging by someone else. He was friendly, punctual, professional, knowledgeable and didn't try to up sell us. He even too the time to take pictures and educate us about our AC system As far as we're concerned, he is our permanent HVAC resource.

The best choice for all your HVAC needs. My home needed a whole new system, ducts and furnace. Sam and his team did a full install of the HVAC system in my home, even with a very small crawl space for an attic. Sam and his professional team were able to do the work outlined in the contract. Sam is very professional and will make sure you understand everything before starting the job. Always available to answer questions and confident in his solutions. I felt very taken care of through the whole process, from the initial visit through the completion and inspection. Sam takes a hand in the whole approach with his company. He is not just selling the system, he's a contractor and a good one at that. I needed a new system, and they did it in a short time. The work and craftsmanship were honed. No upselling, no intimidation, no pressure, just honest answers and professional work. A rare find. Excellent, excellent company.

Joshua was amazing--and to be honest, and if I could give him 100 stars I honestly would. We originally hired Joshua to install a wall furnace, but he expertly helped point us towards a heat pump system which actually has both heat and AC within the same ballpark price. He's helped us navigate this entire process and we are now inspection ready. Very excited about our new HVAC system!! In addition, he was able to help us with our bathroom vent and stove exhaust vent at no additional cost. Highly recommend Joshua and Ohana Air --definitely the best contractors we'ved worked with thus far.

The owner Dave met with us, he was so helpful, gave us lots of info on the different HVAC choices, programs and financing options we could use. Their office staff, also so nice, helpful and patient. The crew that came to install the HVAC, so hard working and thoughtful. They stayed late the first day to make sure we had heat that evening.

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

They were on time per appointment schedule and Sean seems to know what he is talking about HVAC system. He explained to me about his diagnosis and gave me some options. Unfortunately, I decided to forgo the project as planned and opted for a different route than his recommendation.

Micah did perfect job of fixing my AC & fixed issues with HVAC setup. He did a thorough job of checking & rechecking to make sure the whole system worked fine after the repairs. I will re-hire him for my annual maintenance & strongly recommend to anyone. He patiently explained/answered every single question and offered tips to self-maintain the system. Excellent service & Friendly guy.

Denny is a top-notch professional with extensive HVAC experience. When I spoke with a couple of other bidders, it wasn't even obvious that they understood what it might take and how to tackle the hard problems. Denny has worked on old houses with arcane electrical connections and decades-old risers to anticipate and address what might come up. He had a thorough approach to the project. He did everything I asked for and some more. I didn't have to remind him of the couple of small projects on the side of his main assignment after he agreed to do it. He left the place better than he found and did a beautiful job that can last for decades to come. I'd hire him again.

Replaced furnace/AC/duct. Mack is very responsive for commercial aspects, and pro-active to pull up the permit. Eduardo, the project manager is very straight forward, pleasant and competent. Marvin, the specialist of AC is nice and professional. The whole crew of 7, did a great job, worked well and fast, paid attention to details and cleaned after the work. Highly recommended. With furnace and condenser moved to attic, HVAC operation is so quiet now. Very happy about the whole experience.

B Green was able to perform all of the work I needed, from insulation to duct work to pest control. The other vendors did only one or two of these, forcing me to coordinate them over a longer period of time.

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.

Ian was great! We had issues with a previous contractor and after getting in touch with Ian our air conditioning issue was solved in no time. Ian pretty easily diagnosed the situation and provided and very simple and affordable solution. We had cool air running through the home in no time. He was very straight forward and provide lots of info on our system. I would not hesitate to each out to Mercury Heating and Air Cond. again for any of our HVAC issues. Thank again!!

      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.

      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.

      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 for a new air conditioning unit?

      If you’re ready for a new air conditioning unit, it’s time to start exploring HVAC prices. The price will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you buy and its cooling capacity. Window units, which require minimal installation, are one of the most affordable options on the market. If you’re purchasing from a big-box store, you can expect to pay approximately $120-$1,000 for a window unit. Window units are appealing for their quick setup and relatively low cost, but they can use more energy over time than central air and only cool the room in which they’re installed. Portable air conditioners don’t have the cooling power of a window unit, but they do have the perk of being transportable from room to room. Expect to pay between $225 and $800 for a portable air conditioner, on average. For a whole-house air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork), the cost from a big-box store can range from approximately $2,000 to $4,000 or more. If you don’t have (and don’t want to put in) ducts, a ductless mini-split air conditioner is a good option, although pricey up front. Pricing can range from $650 to $4,250 per unit on average; you’ll need one unit for each room in which you want temperature control.
