Thumbtack make it extremely easy to connect with Mark. He proposed a very competitive entry rate and was very quick to schedule me in. He arrived exactly when he said he would and made sure he spent enough time making sure my AC unit did not fail. His attention to detail and the time he spent ensuring his work was proper made the repair well worth it. Because of my first impressions, I am having him price out a full replacement of my furnace and central air. I would highly recommend calling Mark. He is the owner and operator of his business so the buck stops with him. Its nice to have that sort of service.

Bob is the most thorough tech we have ever had the privilege of having come to our home and fix our furnace, let alone the multiple of other repairs he has the talents and knowledge to fix, just ask him and you will hear the truth. He was so detailed in furnace adjustments, even though we had another HVAC tech check the furnace when we moved here, he found the setting on natural gas when it was supposed to be propane, was on air conditioning instead of heat, replaced dangerous broken parts that if not replaced could have burnt down our home and it was very loud but after he did a thorough cleaning it is so quiet. If you need any repair he does, know it will be done right and safe!!! Besides being kind, friendly and fun to be around, D.B.A. Robert Nemec is the Master Technician, The Man To Call!!!

Steve did an excellent job installing my 50 gallon Rheme hot water heater. He arrived right on time, he was very professional, and he did great work. It took about 2 hours for the install and he gave me the lowest price out of all the other offers. Overall I am very happy with the experience. The hot water heater works great and I will consider hiring him for air conditioning, furnace service, and hot water heater maintenance in the future.

I used IQ Heating & Air at our old shop for routine maintenance on the furnace and cooling system. They are always professional and efficient. They installed a new system at our new shop and all went smooth, no headaches or surprize extra charges. Mark also is helping in the design and build of the paint spray booth for my company. Excellent job! -Jim, The Good Painters, llc

    We had no heat during the first cold snap or the season. Felix came out on a Saturday, within the hour, diagnosed the problem and had a new furnace installed by noon on Monday. We are nice and cozy as the temp drops below ten degrees. Thanks, Crespin Mechanical!

    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 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 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 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.
