Guy did a great job. I thought my oil-burning furnace/boiler just needed a routine clean and tune-up, but Guy took the extra time to chisel out debris that was built up in the combustion chamber. He also gave me tons of advice on how to make my system safer and more efficient.

We had a furnace and central air replacement with Fontaine Mechanical. I cant say enough about the owner Bill. He is very knowledgable and treated us so well. The installers were so proffesional and polite. They wore shoe covers and were very clean. They completed the job in a single day! We are so happy with our new furnace and air conditioner. Highly recommend this company.

Troy really came through for us! He went above and beyond to get our 20 year old central air system fixed. He also took care of us on the price. I couldn't be happier with the service. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Didier was punctual, informative, polite and got right to work. I was so worried this was going to be a bigger issue, but he ran new lines for my AC, checked many parts and wiring for the thermostat. Overall, I was very pleased with his service and highly recommend him!! -Tom

John was recommended to us by Migliaro Fuel Oil, when our 12 year old Peerless Boiler cracked on the coldest month of the year. Our house is 12 years old so we have radiant floor heat, hydro air and we get our hot water from the same heating system. John did a great job installing a Buderus boiler, he is very dedicated and responded very quickly and stayed on the job until the system was fine-tuned, we are very satisfied with the work and the system.

I first hired Tom during a renovation back in 2006 to upgrade the ductwork in our 100 year old house. We ended up having him install a new gas furnace and AC system on top of it. Fantastic work - my review is also on his shop's website. We were so impressed and happy with Tom's work that when we bought a new house that needed work on the HVAC system - Tom was the ONLY contractor I called. He has since completely replaced the ductwork in our new house, replaced the AC, and did an oil-to-gas boiler conversion. We also have Tom coming back to add heat to our basement and garage workshop when it's finished. I have referred Tom to friends and coworkers, who have also chosen him to do their work. I could go on and on, but the most convincing part of my review is this - you don't do this much repeat business with a contractor unless you really like their work and the way they treat you and your house. I gave Tom the keys to the house for the duration of the project, and trusted him to come/go any time. Look at the pictures of his work, they practically speak for themselves. Without question, Tom is my HVAC guy for as long as he's in the business, without question.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. For more, check out our tips for smart hiring on Thumbtack.

How much will it cost me to replace my furnace?

The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.

How much does it cost to replace a gas furnace?

The cost to replace your gas furnace will vary based on the type and size of furnace you select, labor and installation costs, and any repairs your HVAC system may need. Nationally, average HVAC prices for a heating specialist range between $1,800 and $2,500. It’s important to select the right size gas furnace for your heating needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t heat your house properly, while a furnace that’s too large will run inefficiently, cycling on and off and likely breaking down sooner. HVAC specialists calculate your exact heat needs by measuring your home and incorporating variables such as the regional climate and your home’s level of insulation. Retail pricing for gas furnaces can range from $650 up to $3,000 and more. The higher the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of the furnace, the more efficient it is at turning fuel into heat and the lower your carbon footprint and utility bill will be. HVAC installation costs are often based on an hourly rate and can range from under $50 to over $100 per hour, depending on the company and the furnace being installed. Higher-end furnaces cost more to install because they require added labor and expertise. For a typical installation, it might take two HVAC installation pros one day or less to remove your old furnace and replace it with a new one.

How much does it cost to have your furnace cleaned?

To keep your furnace in good working order it’s important to have it regularly cleaned. The national average furnace cleaning cost ranges from $60 to $80, though prices can vary greatly based on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes. An HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance. For example,one company may offer general furnace maintenance for $79 and advanced maintenance for $138. Another company may offer a 38-point maintenance check for $89 and a 64-point maintenance check for $178. According to Energy.gov, a standard furnace cleaning and maintenance visit can include:

  • Checking the vent connection pipe and chimney
  • Checking the physical integrity of the heat exchanger
  • Adjusting the controls to provide optimum air temperatures
  • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
  • Cleaning and oiling the blower
  • Removing soot and corrosion from the furnace
  • Checking the fuel input and flame characteristics
  • Sealing the connections between the furnace and the main ducts

How much will it cost me to replace my air conditioner?

If your AC system is in need of replacement, the national average air conditioner installation costs range from $2,930 to $3,670. Costs can vary greatly depending on whether you are replacing a wall or window unit or a central air system. A central air system is connected to ductwork that runs throughout your house and pumps cooled air into your various rooms via vents and registers. A central air conditioning system is far more costly than wall or window units. Selecting a central AC system that has a high seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (SEER) will likely lower both your carbon footprint and your utility bill. The type of AC system you select, where you live in the country, and the regional costs of HVAC work, duct removal and replacement, and ductwork repairs that are needed are some of the main factors that affect the cost of new air conditioner installation. Here are some examples of average costs for installing forced-air systems.

  • Install Lennox 16 SEER single-stage AC unit: $5,743
    • Removing and disposing of the old furnace, moving and reconnecting the water heater, and installing a 3.5-ton gas furnace. The job took 18 hours of labor.
  • Installation of a new 14 SEER single-range cooling system: $4,000-$6,000
  • Installation of a new 16 SEER two-range cooling system: $6,000-$8,000
  • Installation of a new 20 SEER variable capacity cooling system: $8,000-$12,000
