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!!

The technician was great, did very good work, and was on time. I felt the project was overpriced for the service provided -- applying new insulation to my furnace pipes in the garage.

Excellent scheduling, The Sears Home Improvements Team was able to come to my house on short notice to replace a furnace. Options for replacement were explained in detail. I opted for a top-of-the line energy efficient furnace, replacement of the duct network, and addition of a vent to a bedroom that had been converted from a garage. The work was completed in one day. I also received zero percent financing for 18 months. Highly recommend Sears for Home Improvement.

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 called Don Schmitt HVAC after the first big heat wave of San Diego. We knew our A/C was running low on coolant, but had putting off another maintenance item for the house. But after the last heat wave, we knew we needed cooler air ASAP. We had initially called another company we used before, but were told that the next available appointment was in over a week. Called company B - was told it was a 3-week wait due to the heat wave. Called company C - was told they could come out at the end of the week, but was informed that the technician would drop by sometime between 12pm -5pm on a weekday! Finally I found Don Schmitt and was happy to see the good reviews! They promptly responded and said someone could be at the house by the weekend. We were given a 2-hour waiting window...much more reasonable than waiting 5 hours! Don, called when he was on his way. He was very nice and professional. Service was quick. Good price too. We will be calling Don Schmitt again if we need HVAC services in the future.

    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.

    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 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.

    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 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.
