My overall experience with ESI has been very good. My son, and daughter suffer from severe asthma and I do everything in my power to prevent them from getting asthma attacks. Shlomi has been servicing my home for over 3-years now. He understands my situation. I am thankful that he and his company have always been so reliable. His equipment seems very high tech. It has become a lot easier to manage my kid's asthma because of ESI's superb air duct cleaning services. I feel blessed to have found a company that sincerely cares so much about my family.

Bajji arrived promptly and diagnosed the problem correctly. My external AC unit was blowing air but was not cooling the air. He said a fuse was broken and had to be replaced. The materials cost $80 and he mentioned that labor would cost around $150. Yet, when the final bill came it was for a total of $300. He said he took some effort to find the fuse by going to a few stores. In the end, I didnt want to argue and just paid him. I feel $300 is bit pricey for fixing the fuse.

It got hot late last week and so on Saturday (04/29/17) I turned on my AC after the long rainy season and guess what my AC didn't want to function. the fan wasn't working and I tried youtube to see if I can figure it out myself and that didn't go no where. At this time decided I need to go with the pro. started my Yelp reviews and calling my friends. on of my friends mentioned to me about Thumbtack. I went into Thumbtack and requested a quote for my AC repair. I got quote from a dozen contractors from $0 to $72 diagnostic cost. Kevin from East Bay Heating & Air was one among them. Kevin is the owner of the East Bay Heating & Air services and employees a team of 7. I was trying to get someone to come take a look at it on Sunday knowing that the coming days are going to be super hot. Kevin was the only person who decided to come over and take a look at it on Sunday. Kevin was very professional, polite, respectful, communicative, and took the time to explain what is going on with my unit. He also took the time to check my Nest device, AHU, and heater to make sure there is no issue in any of the device. Kevin quickly diagnosed that the motor fan is busted and took picture of the model of the motor. As he was looking at this he also diagnosed for other problems, he identified the disconnect switch was also busted and was not doing its job of cutting power to the AC unit (a major safety issue). Kevin took note of that and turned off the breaker at the main control panel for safety reasons. Once the issue in hand was identified and action plan was established, I started discussing with Kevin options to replace the entire heating & AC unit in my home. he took his time to explain to me all the brands out there, SEER ratings, single stage to double stage etc. Kevin was not rushing or in all of this didn't attempt to sell me anything. no pressure which was great. I requested a quote for replacing the entire system and Kevin quickly assembled a quote and emailed me on the same day. He also promptly replied to all my queries, remember this is all happening on a Sunday. later on that day I decided not to proceed with the whole replacement project even though Kevin's estimate was reasonable since I just did other improvement projects at my home and didn't want undertake this project at this time. When I got back to Kevin on this he was professional and agreed with me that this is the right thing to do. Kevin reaffirmed that he his going to procure the fan motor part and the disconnect switch. Once getting the parts will be at my home on Monday and take care of this work order. On Monday morning he promptly followed up with a call at 10:00am and confirmed that I wanted the motor to be replaced before he bough the parts. At 12pm he was at my home making the repair and as he did it he also cleaned my AC unit. Installed the new disconnect switch and included a compressor saver kit as my AC unit was from 90s. Kevin work was of good quality, prompt, and professional with his service. I will be recommending him to my friends for sure.

Gleo is one of the most honest handymen I've had the pleasure of hiring. He came to our home, checked out our AC and pointed out how the air filter was clogged and the mesh around the condenser outdoor was dirty. He replaced the filter on his own dime and also cleaned the mesh around the condenser to improve the airflow and it fixed the problem. He recommended that I check the filter and the area around the condenser frequently and do my own preventative maintenance so that I don't have to spend money on a professional in the future at the cost of his own future business. I am glad I hired Gleo and whole heartedly recommend him for any handyman projects. I'll be hiring him definitely for my next project.

Great experience with Healthy Duct Services (HDS). They came out the very next day to provide a free estimate for their service when other companies charged for estimates on top of the actual work and had month-long lead times just for the estimates. I had all my HVAC ducts replaced in the crawlspace. Some ducts were very old and had asbestos insulation that had to be fully removed. HDS took charge of the entire situation. They brought in an Asbestos removal company for abatement, installed the ducts, scheduled a HERS test and got the permits for the work. They even cleaned the furnace blower unit. The work was very high quality and I'm very happy that I was able to get it done quickly before the winter season started. I would recommend HDS to everyone and would certainly call them again if I need any HVAC services. Excellent communication throughout the process and very courteous staff.

Superb service by Tim and his crew. Their estimate was fairly priced. The write up for parts and labor was the most detailed invoice I've ever seen. Right down to the dimensions of the tubing. No other contractors do that. Because of their attention to detail and fair price I hired them. They installed a new coil, furnace, and compressor in one day. They even rolled down paper to protect my new floors and wore shoe covers when walking around the house. They're efficient, professional, courteous, and on time. Thanks Tim and IRBIS crew. I highly recommend these guys

Placed my request at 5:00pm Saturday. Derrick arrived at 7:00pm, and my air conditioner was fixed by 7:30pm. Phenomenal turnaround with great results. Derrick did a great job describing the status of what was broken, and then demonstrated that the fix he implemented resolved the issue. Established great confidence in his ability. Then added a Surprise & Delight moment when he referenced that the installed AC parts were under warranty for one year. Where else can you get such prompt and competent (and reasonably priced) service on a Saturday evening. Only using Thumbtack!

Micah is very professional. I hired him to replace the roof air vent due to potential water leaking. He checked the roof and attic, confirmed leaking existed, and explained to me patiently what happened on the vents. He found that although there are two vents, only one is used. He suggested installing one new vent. He did everything in a timely manner and cleaned up. His price is also very reasonable. Highly recommend!

Denny is a consummate professional. What he quotes/proposes is exactly what you get. His work is top quality and he communicates well. I just got a vent fan installed in the kitchen where the duct had to be run to the outside. I also got another heating/cooling vent installed in the bedroom. He did both jobs perfectly and left the house just as clean as it was. He does all this at a great price. Highly recommend Denny

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.

We called empire about a furnace that wasn't working and they came out to look at it the same day. They determined the furnace needed a new gas control valve and brought one out the next day, during the process of installing the gas control valve they found a wire that was overheating due to a faulty blower and arranged to have a new furnace installed on the same day. The work was very professionally done and we are very happy with our new furnace.

I have nothing but good to say about Erasmo and CaliforniAir. I needed to move a vent and add a vent to a large room. He was showed up when he said he was going to show up. The first thing he did after introducing himself was put on shoe covers before coming in my home. It was clear from the get go he knew what he was talking about. He was direct and focused in his assessment, clear in his communication and honest in what would and would not work. There was no upselling! or adding costs halfway through the job. On the day of the job he was running a few minutes behind and texted to let me know. He was neat, tidy and thorough in his work. He needed to cut through the ceiling in three different places, but you'd never know because the room was as clean as before he was there. I'd recommend this company in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate using them 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.

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. 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
