The only issue I had with the overall service was that the techs showed up an hour early unannounced. Other than that, I am extremely happy with the work the techs did. They over exceeded my expectations and seeing that they were able to repair my parents' home furnace, I'm extremely happy that they took the time to insure the furnace worked like it was new.

I think Extreme Heating and Cooling did a great job. The project was to connect an open end of the c-wire to the hvac unit in order for the thermostat display to work. The guys seemed very knowledgable and went a further step to ensure that all connections were in place. They have a standard service charge, but they traveled a long way, so it's not completely unreasonable. The only little snafu was that they initially thought that a same-day service would have been possible, but that didn't work out -- that's completely ok though, because they at least tried and still came in at an earliest time slot. Overall, very nice first experience. I would recommend them to a friend.

Actually the work was done perfectly, quickly, by two great technicians. I only ding them the one star is because they were supposed to be here yesterday. Otherwise they would have received 5 stars.

First off Devin Peterson has been the best service technician we have come across. He is the operations manager and we have been serviced by other employees and he has passed on his stellar service. This company has in the ball park pricing and with the priceless customer service its well worth it. They stand behind all there work and everything they have said. Atomic is a follow through company and we will always be forever grateful that we've found this service company. Atomic has provided our home of these services Air duct & Dryer vent cleaning ,Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning and Air conditioning and Heating maintenance with some repairs. The only service we haven't had is the interior home cleaning offered but we do plan on it when the time comes. Its such a blessing to have this company for all those services. Thank you Atomic , Melissa and Richard Brenton

EXCELLENT SERVICE!! After one of my wall A/C units stop working during the hottest days of the year I decided to look into getting a quote for an HVAC system. Carlos was one of the first to respond even though he was busy due to the hot weather he still made time to come out to give us an estimate. His quote was reasonable and well detailed at no time did we feel pressure on the contrary my husband & I were putting the pressure on him to start as soon as possible. Him & his brother were punctual, knowledgeable and very professional answering all our questions. The job was done in a timely manner. We are completely satisfied and definitely will be recommending Carlos to our friends and family.

Wonderful experience!! I had several issues with other repair services backing out at the last moment and changing their rates from what they originally listed. I messaged AL appliance and he arrived within a couple hours. Took a look at my refrigerator - told me it was a simple repair and it just needed to be reset and to clean the filter. The entire job was done in 15 minutes - I paid him double his rate because it was great service and it was still less than other technicians had quoted me just for a site visit. I will Call AL Appliance first from now on!!

Ben was quick to respond to my need for an HVAC specialist. He went right down to business upon arrival and within 30 minutes, I had a new capacitor and all the wires were neatly bounded up and put back together. AND he didn’t gouge on the price. I don’t know what is the cost of this job in general, but I liked that he didn’t try to rake in the hours and he was proud of his work. Of course I’m a happy camper now, and so is my doggie :-)

Overall very good experience. Hector is very honest. Got a good feeling about the company and in speaking with him. Pricing very reasonable. Overall clean work. Very responsive company. We had 2 entire HVAC and furnace systems replaced. Unfortunately furnace had a technical glitch in the system within the first couple of days. As soon as they found out the problem, someone came out to fix it immediately. Now everything is running smoothly. You never know with any product, if something might go wrong or a part may be recslled...so it’s important to have a company that is very responsive and ready to fix any problems encountered. We felt that we were in good hands.

I loved working with Hyeco Air. They came to my house to move the HVAC Furnace from my garage to the attic. Many company's said it could not be done off the bat (maybe it was too much work for them and they wanted quick money.) Assurance: Hyeco Air came to my house, assessed th e job and assured me that the job could be done. Efficiency: He was highly efficient as it took him just 1 day to disconnect everything from the garage, move it to the attic and reconnect everything back. A job that takes some company's a couple days. Professionalism: Hyeco Air was punctual and professional. He provided astute input on how the process would be, and his recommendations. Value: I am a firm believer of paying for good work. I had no doubt that Hyeco's work was going to be anything less. His price was great for my budget.

I got a quote and hired Breezeway Air Duct Cleaning about 2.5 years ago as my air ducts hadn't been cleaned since I owned my house and my older son was having some health issues, so I wanted to be sure this wasn't causing it.Brandon came and did both of my air conditioning units systems and cleaned out my whole HVAC system. He came in with all of his equipment, I think he uses some sort of HEPA filter with a major suction thing of some sort to get all of the dirt and dust (and God knows what other crap) out of the ducting and it was visibly much cleaner.I had full confidence using my A/C that Summer and was glad to know my kids were breathing clean air.Would use them again.

Extremely happy with the evaluation of my HVAC system and duct work prior to talking about price and the proposed new system. We were given multiple options and everything was very well explained. Install went well and since we installed during a cold weekend, Ken scheduled to come back out once it gets warmer to fine tune the AC portion of the system. Ken truly cares about his trade and it shows.

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.
