I have a home in Huntington Beach that had an existing furnace and ductwork. I wanted to install AC utilizing the existing system. I consulted with several HVAC contractors and received quotes. Mina was the most knowledgeable of the group of contractors, provided the best suggestions, and also had a very competitive price. During the installation the ductwork turned out to be in poor condition. Mina replaced the ductwork and only charged me the cost of material and not the labor. For anyone who has done contracting this in unheard of. Change orders are often outrageously priced. Mina is an honest man who does good work and cares about satisfaction with the job. If you have the opportunity to use Mina I highly recommend him. The system has been installed and running for 1 month and all continues to work great. Thank you Mina.

Jose came out and did a fantastic job. I've been remodeling homes for a long time, and have worked with many contractors, and he is one of the better ones I've worked with.

The saying you get what you pay for really means something with contractors. These are the first guys who have left my house and I have nothing to complain about! Great company! They show up on time. They do quality work and they layout a variety of options for you. They spend time talking to you so you know what your issue is and what you can do to fix the problem or how to move to upgrade which was what I choose to do. Couldn’t be happier. Love my new air conditioner. When I need a new water heater I know who to call. Not the cheapest not even the most expensive and they give you options to work out payments if needed. There is a reason they are highly rated.

David repaired the electrical that had shorted due to something from the original install. He does quick but very thorough work. He has much more to offer than just HVAC repair and I will definitely be using him again. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to work with a professional.

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.

Put out bids on thumbtack Saturday afternoon, an hour later had three bids, but one stood out from the rest. It was All stars. I had described my issue, there response was far and above accurate, and included suggestions from a partial repair to a complete new unit with pricing. and even came out the next day, a Sunday, and it was Father's Day. Sal was terrific to work with, and considering it was exceedingly hot, he was able to install the new A/C unit on my roof the following day. I had spoken to three other HVAC companies, none of them were even near All stars prices for a brand unit, by half, or even able to come out to talk to me for a week. I agreed to use his service, and Monday morning one of his co-workers arrived, removed the old unit and coolant, a few hours later the crane arrived and Sal, the A/C unit was installed in a few hours. It's been about two months, the unit works great, no issues, none. One of my neighbors had an issue a month ago, I recommended All stars, he called them and two hours later they were here repairing there A/C unit. They're professionalism, timeliness, and they're quality work ethic is second to none. Save yourself the time and effort and aggravation of looking for a great air conditioning company, just call All Stars, you'll be very satisfied.

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 have been working with Eddie on multiple properties for over 5 years now. His work has ranged from very simple to major remodeling and home repairs (plumbing, electrical, kitchen remodel, tile floors/counter tops, painting, roof repair and more). We really value his honesty, responsiveness and reliability. The guy is personable and he offers good ideas. And his work is very high quality, for very fair rates. A good contractor is a great resource - I would definitely recommend him.

We wanted new granite counter tops for our kitchen and a island built. We wanted our island to match our existing kitchen cabinets color as well. Germain came out the same day I reached out to him to measure and gave us an estimate, turn around time, and was very informative, professional, and very reasonable. Throughout the process, he was always in contact with us, giving us updates, and keeping us informed of how the work was coming along on my island. The island we had made has 2 trash can pull out on one side, and a cookware organizer that was customized to fit in the middle cabinet, and another cabinet for storage, he later informed us we had room to add 4 more drawers up top, which we accepted to have done. It came out great, the color of the island was identical to our existing cabinets. We were very impressed. His guys he had doing the granite work were also very professional, punctual, and did a beautiful job on the counter tops. I would definitely be using Germain again for our future projects as he's a licensed general contractor. It was a nice, stress free, experience to upgrade our kitchen working with Germain at Greenview Construction.

We had Coggins Construction install crown molding in our home. Patrick was very professional throughout the entire process and satisfactorily completed the project under the initial price quote, which was already extemely reasonable. He actually listened to what we wanted and was respectful of our house-things that previous contractors neglected. We would recommend Patrick's services to anyone.

My experience with Velavi, from removal of floor furnace to completed installation of furnace, AC, and duct work, was fabulous. There might be other companies that are equally as good, but I doubt you could find one that is better. The installation passed all tests by an independent contractor with flying colors. Our city building inspector was impressed by the quality of work. Get a quote. You won't regret it. The only problem I had was with Thumbtack. I was curious about their service, so I signed up as a customer. I already had requested four quotes based on Yelp reviews and decided to add one from Thumbtack. I was soon getting emails from five companies other than Velavi. Then I started getting update emails from Thumbtack on the status of the project. I ignored all the emails until the installation was done. At which time I was asked to write a review. They listed five companies to select from. Velavi was not one of the five choices I was given, so I looked for an option to unsubscribe. None. Now I am feeling like I do when phone solicitors keep calling me multiple times... "irrigated"... Thumbtack, if you are reading this, please unsubscribe me. Do yourself a favor. Give other dissatisfied customers the option of terminating the unwanted emails.

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!!!!!!

Great job! Quoted a fixed price to fix a mess left behind by my (ex) general contractor (Hydronic radiant floor heating) . The big companies in San Diego wouldn't even look at it - one other company was more than double his quote. He got the job done in the time quoted, was punctual, courteous and knowledgeable.

I first met Tony Dorgan last summer when he came to price out replacement windows for me. He was extremely knowledgeable about both the product and the process. I also appreciated his efforts in getting my windows installed in my timeframe. I was even more impressed by the company’s after installation customer support. Almost a year after the install, one of my sliding doors was not locking. I called and someone came right away. As it turns out, the door was fine; I was just not shutting it all the way. This summer I decided to replace two bathroom windows that I had not done the first go around. Even though it was a small job, I still got the same support and attention I had enjoyed on my earlier big job. I was called when the window order was placed with the manufacturer to give me a timeframe; I was called when the job was ready to be scheduled; I was called two days ahead of the install to confirm the date; and I was called the morning of the install to let me know the approximate arrival time. Working with Dorgan’s Remodeling has been a pleasure, and I would recommend their services to anyone seeking a reliable contractor, who puts customer concerns first and foremost.

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.

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 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 will it cost me to replace my furnace?

The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.
