Talked to several companies about rodent-proofing (possible removal) and cleaning. Shlomi at ESI was the most professional and informative of those I spoke with and compared to other companies, his seems to be much more thorough and willing to answer a lot of questions. He was very prompt and responsive, showed up on time (they gave me a 2 hour window, but he called to tell me when he'd arrive), did some work after the initial inspection and then returned to complete the job. Unlike other companies (offering rodent services), ESI includes the follow ups in the initial cost so they'll return a few times to make sure the job was done right and that no other entry points remain. I'd recommend ESI and Shlomi for such work as well as furnace maintenance and duct cleaning as well - great team and even better service!

Hired Smart HVAC for furnace blowing cold air. Bajji responded immediately (it was 10pm) and came the next morning punctually at 9pm. Thorough diagnosis (bad wire connection and bad temperature sensor), reasonably priced repair. Would hire again. Very good.

Kevin was prompt. He efficiently made furnace repairs and explained what he was doing every step of the process. When unable to replace the filters immediately, he made a follow up appointment for Monday. I would highly recommend him. Outstanding.

Max provided an amazing service. Everything about his was professional, friendly, capable and service oriented. His charge was extremely reasonable for the work he did. Not only did he effectively fix my furnace, he also did a great job as a plumber. I really appreciate that he made it a fixed price job - so I knew exactly how much my charge was going to be, and everything was completely transparent. There were several cases where he could have charged me more, or suggested a higher priced service, but he didn't. Max was outstanding both in his capability and service level. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone!

Gleo was really wonderful in helping fix our our water heater which stopped working on New Year's eve. Gleo reached out to me via Thumbtack. We exchanged a few messages and he asked for photos of the boiler and the switch module. After reviewing the photos, he mentioned one possible root cause and submitted a quote for that. I accepted the quote and he came over very promptly the next day morning as promised and helped resolve the problem. I liked the way he worked through different possible problems very methodically and all the while he explained me what he was looking for before he started poking around. He not only found and fixed the boiler problem but waited to make sure that the problem was verified and hot water was flowing at all taps. He also promised to stand by his work for the next few days in case the problem came back. Overall, the problem was resolved successfully and the experience of working with Gleo was very good. Thanks very much Gleo. You helped us out when even the warranty company could not. Kudos!

Hi. We had an issue with our heating duct (rats had caused the duct to come loose, so hot air was being pumped under the house, not into it (lovely)!. We called S.A.E. and Josh came with i think Paris. they inspected the duct work, and our furnace for the call out fee. they actually performed a repair (temporary) without any additional cost. this shows they were looking out for our well being, and not trying to make $$$. On inspection our furnace was well over 20 years and on its last legs. Josh spent time reviewing various options with us. While we didn't budget for the expense Josh worked with us on the type of furnace, new ducting, and addition of A/C. We did some research outside of S.A.E (e.g. Costco) and the prices were comparable (SAE slightly higher). due to the professionalism, and willingness to work with us, we were happy to pay the slightly higher price to work with a local company. the work was performed quickly, and with minimal disruption. The team were courteous, professional, and showed genuine interest in making sure we were happy. I'd recommend these guys to anyone. we got the Lennox 280 furnace. So far, so good. Josh and team also had to re-wire out thremostat, which they did with no fuss, and importantly they re-painted the well- very nicely. the small things count on projects like this, and as far as we're concerned the job has been done very well.

I was treated professionally, my calls returned, and my non-functioning furnace fixed in 24 hrs by a trained, pleasant Tech for a good price. Heavenly Service cares more about doing it right than making as much money possible off customers. 5 stars!

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

Professionally and well executed thru entire process. I got five estimates. A1 was upper middle, but my experience and value of their deliverables justified the price. I would definitely refer them to anyone. FYI my installers were Oscar and William ( very professional/respectful/meticulous), Sales - Jerry, & Brad (COO?). Christina on the phone was helpful as well. They have a good team. Summary of work done: Replaced 48 year old furnace in garage closet shared with water heater. Replaced old ducting. Installed new Trane XV80, 2 stg, 100K BTU, ducting, bubble wrap insulation. Took away all old stuff. $5500 (incl taxes, inspection...). I probably got some discount. All five bids ... lowest 2800$, Highest 7200$, middle were 5000-5500. Great job guys!

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

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.

How much does it cost to have your furnace cleaned?

To keep your furnace in good working order it’s important to have it regularly cleaned. The national average furnace cleaning cost ranges from $60 to $80, though prices can vary greatly based on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes. An HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance. For example,one company may offer general furnace maintenance for $79 and advanced maintenance for $138. Another company may offer a 38-point maintenance check for $89 and a 64-point maintenance check for $178. According to Energy.gov, a standard furnace cleaning and maintenance visit can include:

  • Checking the vent connection pipe and chimney
  • Checking the physical integrity of the heat exchanger
  • Adjusting the controls to provide optimum air temperatures
  • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
  • Cleaning and oiling the blower
  • Removing soot and corrosion from the furnace
  • Checking the fuel input and flame characteristics
  • Sealing the connections between the furnace and the main ducts

How much does it cost to replace a gas furnace?

The cost to replace your gas furnace will vary based on the type and size of furnace you select, labor and installation costs, and any repairs your HVAC system may need. Nationally, average HVAC prices for a heating specialist range between $1,800 and $2,500. It’s important to select the right size gas furnace for your heating needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t heat your house properly, while a furnace that’s too large will run inefficiently, cycling on and off and likely breaking down sooner. HVAC specialists calculate your exact heat needs by measuring your home and incorporating variables such as the regional climate and your home’s level of insulation. Retail pricing for gas furnaces can range from $650 up to $3,000 and more. The higher the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of the furnace, the more efficient it is at turning fuel into heat and the lower your carbon footprint and utility bill will be. HVAC installation costs are often based on an hourly rate and can range from under $50 to over $100 per hour, depending on the company and the furnace being installed. Higher-end furnaces cost more to install because they require added labor and expertise. For a typical installation, it might take two HVAC installation pros one day or less to remove your old furnace and replace it with a new one.

How much does it cost to have your furnace serviced?

When your furnace isn’t regularly serviced it can operate less efficiently. This increases your energy bills and also prevents your furnace from keeping your home as warm as you like. Keep your furnace properly maintained with regular service. The national average furnace service cost is between $60 and $80. Companies may offer tuneup specials that cover all the necessary testing, tightening, measuring and cleaning to keep your equipment running at top efficiency. If you have a newer system, furnace service costs may be covered by your warranty. Outside of warranty, a basic tuneup might start at $58 and a more advanced maintenance cleaning could be over $120. Here are some signs your furnace may need service:

  • The furnace has stopped functioning entirely.
  • The temperature cannot be regulated.
  • Rooms in the home are either too hot or too cold.
  • The heated air coming from the furnace smells like gas.
  • The thermostat isn’t working.
  • Strange noises are coming from the furnace.
