Just had a great experience with Dan of SDAC. He's a really good guy who not only diagnosed my issues, but he also educated me on my AC unit. SDAC is very reasonable and I will definitely be using this company for all of my heating and cooling needs. Thanks again Dan!

Jeff was extremely responsive and found our AC issue quickly. He resolved it for a reasonable price the same day we submitted the request. I would highly recommend him and will use him again for future AC/heating needs.

Thank you to Prestigious/Independent Heat & Air for the excellent service. We have been trying to find a reliable business to service our AC Air/Heating Unit at our office. For some reason, these guys are hard to find... Thankfully, we were referred to Prestigious/Independent Heat & Air. Jason came for the first service and was thorough, polite, neat, and professional. It was refreshing to work with someone like Jason. We will be using these guys again for multiple locations and happy to refer them on to friends and family... Thank you again!!

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 got quotes from at least 8 contractors and Eddie gave me a very competitive price. He also has a great review on yelp (check with him for how to see the reviews). He patiently answered all my questions and finished within one day for a whole house AC installation. It was the right timing for the hot season, and so far it's running good and strong. I will surely recommend Eddie to my friends/neighbors or anyone if they ask me for suggestion. At least give Eddie a call/message before making the final decesion!

    Robbie Duin and his crew replaced the roof on my barn. The job included (6) skylights and (4) air vents. I'm very pleased with the level of workmanship, quality of materials and overall result. I would not hesitate to recommend Duin-It Roofing to friends, neighbors, family and anyone interested in a good job at a fair price.

    We've used Bill Howe a couple of times now and couldn't be happier. Both times they came to repair leaks. The first time, the leak was very extensive. We actually had water pouring down through the ceiling and initially called a different "plumber", which turned out to be a complete disaster. The guy worked on the issue for hours and wasn't able to resolve it. Plus, he left a huge mess. After paying him a couple hundred dollars, we still had water coming through the ceiling. So, we decided to call Bill Howe. They were able to come the same day and correct the issue in 30-45 mins. Plus, their technician was super nice, explained to us exactly what the problem was and cleaned up after himself! After having such a good experience the first time, we called Bill Howe again for our leaky kitchen sink. They came out again and did a great job in a very short amount of time. They even caulked the sink for us after the repair since the people who sold us the house never had this done. All in all, they offer excellent service that is both fast and affordable, and we'd certainly hire them again!

    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.

    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 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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
