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.

I found out that my furnace stopped working, in some of the rooms I didn't have air coming through. Some of the ducts were broken and open as well. I went through three companies to come to my home to provide me estimate. All three of them told me to replace the furnace and the all 15 ducts. The highest price I was given was 4,000 to replace the furnace and the ducts were 10,000. They were all very high prices. My friend told me to try Thumbtack because they had liked it. I sent a request, and right away Osi sent me an email. I said I would try his company. Sam came to my home, and when he arrived and looked at the furnace, told me he didn't know why people said the furnace needed to be replaced. Only one fan needed to be replaced within the furnace that was only 6 years old. Sam told me only 4 ducts really needed to be replaced and showed me the difference between those and the others, but was honest with me about price and need for 4 ducts being replaced vs 15. I decided to have all ducts changed out because of his honesty. And still, the price was incredibly reasonable! He said he could fix it for me - he went and got the parts and came back the day he promised. He came with his crew and replaced everything - and 25 minutes later my furnace started to work! It only took about 5 hours for 3 guys to fix and replace everything in my home. After, he walked me through and showed me everything after the project was done. THANK YOU SO MUCH. You saved me so much money. I am so happy, he was very honest and I want everyone to know what a great job he did! To all the people that see this - try them first! They are honest and they are worth it! We had a great experience and I highly recommend them! A very excellent company!

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.

Alex offered a very competitive diagnosis fee in the beginning, and clearly outlined what's included with his service (months of warranty, and whether it's insured etc). This made him standout among all the other pros. Turned out it was an easy fix, and we were able to get it all sorted out in less than 15min, and my dryer is up and running again. Overall it took no more than 4 hours from me filing the request to getting it done. Great experience!

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

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.

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 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.

How much will it cost me to replace my air conditioner?

If your AC system is in need of replacement, the national average air conditioner installation costs range from $2,930 to $3,670. Costs can vary greatly depending on whether you are replacing a wall or window unit or a central air system. A central air system is connected to ductwork that runs throughout your house and pumps cooled air into your various rooms via vents and registers. A central air conditioning system is far more costly than wall or window units. Selecting a central AC system that has a high seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (SEER) will likely lower both your carbon footprint and your utility bill. The type of AC system you select, where you live in the country, and the regional costs of HVAC work, duct removal and replacement, and ductwork repairs that are needed are some of the main factors that affect the cost of new air conditioner installation. Here are some examples of average costs for installing forced-air systems.

  • Install Lennox 16 SEER single-stage AC unit: $5,743
    • Removing and disposing of the old furnace, moving and reconnecting the water heater, and installing a 3.5-ton gas furnace. The job took 18 hours of labor.
  • Installation of a new 14 SEER single-range cooling system: $4,000-$6,000
  • Installation of a new 16 SEER two-range cooling system: $6,000-$8,000
  • Installation of a new 20 SEER variable capacity cooling system: $8,000-$12,000

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
