We had Dan install our new Nest thermostat. He arrived on time and did a thorough job installing/testing the unit. He also took the time to explain how to use the unit and provided advice on another issue. I really liked working with him and will be keeping his card handy for any future HVAC needs.

I saved for months for a new HVAC system and then called the HVAC company that gave me the original diagnosis to have my HVAC replaced. They never replied or called backed so I contacted TCS. Turns out, no new system was needed! The TCS tech came out, cleaned my system, with a few other minor fixes and HVAC starting working again at a fraction of the cost! I would recommend TCS. They are reliable and are super honest, which is hard to find. Thanks TCS!

Juan Rosales quoted $50 for service call, and said he would be onsite between 3:30 and 4:00 PM the same day service was requested. He arrived at 3:45 PM. We have a 39 year old Payne furnace. Juan explained and showed why the furnace failed to work (dirty air filter). He explained that, by design, less air movement from the dirty air filter caused the blower to run continuously after the heater shut down as a safety precaution. Fiddling with the wiring without disconnecting power to the board, and banging on the control board caused it to fail permanently. Juan installed the new control board and thermostat I had already purchased. Juan explained that he regularly gets updated schooling on HVAC to stay on top of his craft. Total cost for his work was $100. I am pleased with his service.

Outstanding from start to finish. The other three HVAC contractors on Thumbtack wanted to charge for the estimate even hiding it by saying the estimate as an analysis ! (Not !) St.John's estimate was free, the work was quick, the price was fair, and the contractor was a pleasure to work with ! C&H

I was impressed with Five Star HVAC. They arrived on time and diagnosed the problem in 5 minutes. When their estimate on the time to get a replacement part went longer than thought, they immediately called with the new timeline. That said, they had the part on sure within an hour and in place 5 minutes later. I greatly appreciate they did not try to up sell a nee a/c unit. I'd use then again.

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!

Air Plus Heating, Cooling, & Solar was the third of three bids I solicited to replace the c. 1980s furnace in our rental property. Rhonda Mayes, the scheduling coordinator (my description) was very quick about setting a convenient meet with Danny (to do the initial survey so as to create the materials list). As it turned out, Air Plus's bid turned out to be the lowest with an all-inclusive pricing in order to avoid any confusion. Offering to pay in cash, I even got a discount that could offset at least some of the sales tax. The installation was scheduled the following week. Andrew and Ed arrived on time the day of the installation. They were very efficient and very quick, even finishing a bit earlier than scheduled. By the time I arrived, they were almost done cleaning up and have already instructed my tenants as to the furnace's proper operation. It was great doing business with Air Plus as they used Trane products (while I'm no HVAC expert I do know the reputation of Trane products), they are friendly and easy to work with from Rhonda to Dan and to Andrew and Ed. And they were all very knowledgeable, from the contracting aspect to the technical aspect. Overall a great company to do business with!!

Danny assessed the work to be done, took care of it, and even helped give me some suggestions on other odds and ends things completely unrelated to this job. Also, I did not understand that the existing pipe within the wall was already code compliant. He could have taken me for a ride replacing that pipe and charging me thousands and I'd have never known better. He was straight forward with me that the pipe in the wall is correct, and only the short run of pipe running from the water heater to the wall needed to be replaced.

All County was a great option to repair my AC unit at a reasonable price. The technician who came out was quick, and he came out on a Saturday morning after I called on a Friday. The number you are calling is his cell phone and he also communicates via text which is great. He let me know the issues that my older system has, and brought my older system up to a much better standard than it was before. Eventually, I will have to replace the HVAC system in my house (is from the 80s-90s), but I was given another few good years of work on my system. He cleaned the coils, replaced the Freon, and cleaned out the system, installed new filters.

The motor in my furnace went out. The problem was diagnosed immediately by Lane and the work was done in short order. He and his crew are extremely professional and clean. He gave me such a great deal, it was half of what the other companies quoted. From now on I'll be calling Hutchinson!

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.
