Five things to know about Kevin: 1. HE'S INSURED - My attorney wife absolutely insists that anyone who I hire to do work on our property be insured. Unscrupulous uninsured hired help will fake injuries while on your property and then sue you. She's seen it many times. My insurance company agrees with her. 2. HE WONT Burglarize your house! - for years I worked with a big hearted extremely competent general contractor who compassionately hired associates who had checkered pasts. I strongly suspect that one of those associates burglarized my house and stole $29,000 worth of stuff. It looked like an inside job. Kevin is an extremely patriotic 51-year-old ex naval aviator whose married with a kid. Kevin is a guy you can trust! 3. KEVIN IS EXTREMELY COMPETENT: he's been working in the plumbing area for over 30 years - started at age 17. He's worked on thousands of jobs over the years (249 on thumbtack alone) and is undefeated when it comes to plumbing problems. He's a very, very intelligent guy with dogged determination who will do whatever it takes to fix your plumbing problems. 4. HIS RATES ARE UNBELIEVABLY LOW- two "rooter " companies gave me free on site estimates of $275 to fix my clogged kitchen sink. Kevin came in at less than half that. We encountered some unanticipated complexities with my drain that could have resulted in a doubling of the cost from the "rooter" companies, but Kevin held firm to his original estimate. 5. KEVIN IS IN FREAKISHLY GOOD SHAPE- I'm a former athlete who lifts weights and is in generally good shape. But I was amazed at Kevin's ability to hoist a 100 pound "snake machine " on my roof to access an air exhaust pipe in order to clear my clogged pipe. Man, there ain't no way that I could have done that. In summary, as homeowners we all have multiple types of anxieties when it comes to hiring strangers to come into our homes to do work. Kevin allays all such concerns. He's the best guy I've ever contracted with, and if all Americans had his work ethic and sense of moral fortitude, than there would be no problems with our country.

David is fantastic; he is definitely going to be our go to guy for any handy services around the house from now on. We asked David for a couple of things that involved going down into our crawl space. He’s fixed our dryer exhaust, fixed plumbing leaks and installed a gas line. If I could give David 10 stars I would. He is says he will do the job and will work on it till the job is done. We couldn’t be happier finding a guy like him. I highly recommend using him for all your handyman needs.

Derek arrived on time and was polite and focused on the task. He diagnosed the loud rattle / vibration we have in an HVAC vent -- determined the heater is otherwise working fine -- but wasn't able to eliminate the noise. Our vent cover is atypical (will require brute force removal, followed by repair/painting.) He recommended we hire a "handyman" who will have the tools to reach far into the vent to solve the problem. We were not charged for Derek's visit.

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.

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.

We hired Anthony a month ago for install new heating and cooling service in our home which also required to install vents. Anthony and his team did very clean job installing furnace on attic and as well as vents on ceiling without making any damage to the ceiling. As it was so cold last month Anthony had sense of emergency and he with his team worked till late eve and finished the work in just 4 days for us. He is not just good professionally but personally too, he understood our situation and helped us with his big van just on personal values without expecting any benefits from us.

Carlos and his crew did great job of replacing the old air ducts for my entire house of 3000sf. I wanted to do it asap before next heat wave and Carlos went extra step to meet my request. Job was done on time, in less than day and a half, very professionally, with great quality and very fair price. In the process they noticed few more deficiencies and suggested the most economic ways to correct it. Some they even fixed in the process. I highly recommend Carlos for all HVAC projects and for sure hire him for any future projects. Thank you Carlos for great job! We enjoyed the results of your work the next day when temperature in our area reached almost 110 deg :)!

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

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 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 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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
