our freezer was oozing water, creating a skating rink at the bottom i had to chip out every couple of days with a knife. luis quickly diagnosed and repaired, cleaned all sorts of ick from beneath that were clogging air flow and overburdening the machinations (we have two cats and two dogs, and there was a hair sweater under there). he explained how the fridge has been running nonstop because it couldn't, essentially, breathe. it is usually all a-rumble...but it has been quiet as a mouse since he left. he also jacked up the height of its front pegs so it's on little high heels... it's so quiet it seems like he forgot to plug it back in. amazing! very pleased. got lecture about importance of regular maintenance.... will take it to heart. his work guaranteed for one year, which is nice.

My air conditioning was leaking and I was hesitant to call. I spoke to the office staff and they were very friendly. They listened to my needs and answered all my questions. Once the tech arrived, he was presentable and left everything clean. He repaired my unit and didn't charge an arm and a leg. I will definitely go to them for all of my air conditioning repairs!!!!!!

Where do I start?? I was absolutely skeptical when I decided to give Indoor Climate Experts a chance. This would be the 4th technicians to come look at our central air conditioning unit which went out last summer and hasn’t worked since. I’d been given quotes from $1,400 - $15,000. I finally had a trusted family member spend some time lo

TCS was awesome! After I got stood up (twice!!!) by another contractor, Jason and his son Jason were on the ball with coming out to diagnose my long-dead air conditioner in this heat. They will have it up and running again today for a fair price. Punctual, professional, responsive, good pricing, gave me options. Thank you TCS, I will send everyone I know to you for their HVAC needs!

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Independent/Prestigious Heating & Air Conditioning. One of my two air conditioning units stopped working. I checked the capacitor and it was fine, so I knew it must be the compressor. I contacted one of the larger HVAC companies (I won’t name them) and their first available appointment was in 5 days…so I waited. Then it took 4 days to get the estimate (after paying a $150 service call fee)…then it took 1 week for the new compressor to come in, then that compressor was supposedly faulty, etc., etc., etc. After screwing around with this other large HVAC company for almost a month, I saw on NextDoor that someone had recommended Independent/Prestigious Heating & Air Conditioning. At around 7pm, I texted the owner Jason Roskelley and within minutes he responded to me. I told him my situation and he had me text him a picture of the unit label, etc. He said he would call his supplier at 9am the next morning to see if they had the compressor available. 9:30am Jason called me back, told me he could pick up the compressor and come over at 1:30pm to install it. Huh? I call him at 7pm the night before and he’s installing it at 1:30pm the next day? I can’t say enough about them. The two owners, Jason Roskelley and Ryan Burdick, personally installed it themselves. They cleaned up the mess that the previous company made and left me with a brand new compressor working perfectly. I later learned that Jason and Ryan used to work for one of the big HVAC companies…so basically they were doing the work while their company was overcharging the customer. Using Jason and Ryan is like cutting out the middleman (although they are properly licensed, etc.). They did a perfect job at a reasonable price. I would recommend them without reservation.

I got quotes from at least 8 contractors and Eddie gave me a very competitive price. He also has a great review on yelp (check with him for how to see the reviews). He patiently answered all my questions and finished within one day for a whole house AC installation. It was the right timing for the hot season, and so far it's running good and strong. I will surely recommend Eddie to my friends/neighbors or anyone if they ask me for suggestion. At least give Eddie a call/message before making the final decesion!

Ive had multiple companies come out to give me estimate for a new Air conditioner and furnace, Cano air was the most professional and thorough company by far. Javier was very knowledgeable and gave me lots of options and compared to all the bigger companies his prices and warranties were the best. I would honestly recommend it them to all my family and friends for sure.

Robbie Duin and his crew replaced the roof on my barn. The job included (6) skylights and (4) air vents. I'm very pleased with the level of workmanship, quality of materials and overall result. I would not hesitate to recommend Duin-It Roofing to friends, neighbors, family and anyone interested in a good job at a fair price.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    How much does it cost for a new air conditioning unit?

    If you’re ready for a new air conditioning unit, it’s time to start exploring HVAC prices. The price will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you buy and its cooling capacity. Window units, which require minimal installation, are one of the most affordable options on the market. If you’re purchasing from a big-box store, you can expect to pay approximately $120-$1,000 for a window unit. Window units are appealing for their quick setup and relatively low cost, but they can use more energy over time than central air and only cool the room in which they’re installed. Portable air conditioners don’t have the cooling power of a window unit, but they do have the perk of being transportable from room to room. Expect to pay between $225 and $800 for a portable air conditioner, on average. For a whole-house air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork), the cost from a big-box store can range from approximately $2,000 to $4,000 or more. If you don’t have (and don’t want to put in) ducts, a ductless mini-split air conditioner is a good option, although pricey up front. Pricing can range from $650 to $4,250 per unit on average; you’ll need one unit for each room in which you want temperature control.
