Kevin did a great job and was thorough and helpful before the appt and during. The job took longer than we hoped, but it wasn't his problem. I prefer a specific appt. time, not a window of probability, but he did come before the end time. He was able to get it done a day earlier than we expected which was also helpful and much cheaper than any of the plumbing companies. He replaced two sink faucets and two toilets in 4.5 hrs. Thank you!

I spoke to them over the phone and they very professionally made recommendations NOT to hire them. They took the time on their dime to listen to the symptoms with my fridge and then determined that the cost to repair would be close to replacement. Talking themselves out of a paid service visit to do the right thing for a long term customer is appreciated and rare. Thank you!

Bajji was fantastic. Quick service, professional diagnosis and repair, fair pricing. He's definitely our go-to HVAC professional now! He came out on a Saturday to take a look at our heat pump that wasn't turning on. After some testing he ruled out a compressor failure ($$$$), found and fixed wiring mistakes from the previous company who tried and failed to fix it, found the issue (faulty switch), and got it fixed, all in 1h. Along the way he addressed my curiosity by answering questions about what he was doing, and gave us some advice for any future issues we might have. Very very satisfied customers, we're recommending Bajji to anyone who will listen!

Giovanni and his co-worker came to do an onsite quote for a mini-split ductless AC unit. They were both extremely professional and spent quality time answering my questions. I've had 4 quotes done prior to them, and these two guys blew me away with knowledge. The other HVAC contractors left out lots of details on the installation which I felt was vital to my project. Currently I'm waiting on my HOA for approval, but I felt that they provided such great service, I had to write a review ASAP. Additionally in regard to response time to Thumbtack, Giovanni was great. Very friendly and professional communication. I hope my HOA gives me the thumbs up for my install because I'd love to do the install with this honest company.

I had a great experience working with Zef, who is knowledgeable, cheerful and punctual for his work. I hired Zef and his team for a new AC system at my townhouse. He was flexible to work with my time and provided me with the best value solutions. His work is also clean and quick. I would highly recommend Zef to anyone who is looking for HVAC services and installations

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
