Tony was a pleasure to work with. He was on time, able to diagnose and repair the heating problem properly, all at a fair and reasonable price. I would definitely use him again, and highly recommend him.

Josh and his team did a fantastic job diagnosing and repairing my main plumbing drain when it backed up and caused a lot of issues. He made the process as simple and painless as possible. I highly recommend Solution Based Plumbing and Heating!

Fantastic service. Al took the time to explain everything to me to have me back up and running in no time and for a very reasonable price. He'll be my first call next time I have any issues with my central air. Thanks!

I came home from being out of town late on a Sunday night to discover that my water heater failed and was leaking. I contacted four plumbers and ultimately went with Steve because he had a great price, had very good reviews, and because the estimate experience with him was better than the other three plumbers. He went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule, get the new unit installed immediately, and help me deal with the warranty on my failed unit. I will be hiring Steve again for my other heating and plumbing needs.

Where do I begin? Benny EXPERTLY replaced my residential heating unit, fixing my 3 previous HVAC guys' mistakes and shortcuts in the process, the biggest of which was a huge condensation problem slowly destroying my chimney, this without the need of installing an expensive chimney liner ☺. And when he discovered air being vented over fiberglass house insulation - a big no-no - he spent at least 3-4 hours removing the insulation at no extra charge, just to do the job right, and because of his concern for our health. He also installed a central AC unit at the same time, which I LOVE. I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the extra intake adjustable vent he suggested and installed near the unit in the basement, which recirculates cold/cool air from the basement to the rest of the house when I open this vent and run the fan only function on the unit, cooling the house on those warm not hot days, making the need of running the actual AC unit often unnecessary and saving me $$$. And after he reconfigured the duct work some, so that the reusable hepa filters he provided to us fit snugly in the system, our allergy symptoms immediately became a thing of the past ☺☺☺. He also asked me what kind of thermostat I would like, and installed the perfect thermostat for me, and also color-coordinated it to my decor no less. Beautiful! I love it. And when my water heater recently gave up the ghost, Benny rearranged his schedule to replace it asap, along with adding shut-off valves going to the water heater (perfect), another expert installation of another fine quality unit, these jobs WELL WORTH their very reasonable costs...I've never written a review before for anything, but felt compelled to sing Benny's praises. From now on he's the only HVAC/plumber for me. Do not think twice!

Connecting with Sean and having him do a service call was a wonderful decision. I made contact around noon and he was at my house on the same day at 5:30pm. My air conditioner was fixed by 6:00PM!! He was there on time, worked quickly and then gave me some free advice on how to make the upstairs of my house cooler. Outstanding experience. I will never use anyone other than Home HVAC Services for all of my heating and cooling needs.

Jason did a fantastic job inspecting the heating system of the house we wanted to buy. He found things not found by the home inspector and I can't imagine the headache I would have inheritated if he would not have been there. When the previous owner had the new heating system installed, Jason was there to reinsoect everything to make sure I was protected. He's the only guy I'd call in the future.

We had a leak in a copper pipe in our baseboard heating - but it happened on New Years Eve. We called the big names that advertise 24/7 emergency service, Horizon and Roto-Rooter, and neither had anyone to send. So those ads are false. Desparate as we were, we stumbled across Thumbtack, posted our problem, and within minutes received a reply from Phil. He offered to come that night to at least turn off the water and return to fix in the morning. This despite his living 30 minutes from us. We decided to wait (we needed to keep the heat on) and stayed up all night dumping water. Next day, Phil showed up on time, saw the problem and gave us a fixed price for the job before starting. We thought the price was reasonable (because we've used many plumbers before for other leaks) and accepted. Phil did a fantastic job. He was probably at our house for 5 hours. He didn't leave until everything was just so - purging air from our lines so the heat would work better. I can't say enough good things - he was a life saver. I doubt we would have found anyone to come New Year's Day, and if we did, we would have been charged through the roof. Thanks Phil - Happy New Year! Best of Luck.

I could not recommend a better HVAC/R company in the Philly area. Ray gave me an estimate on a job where he explained everything down to the needed calculations to install the correct system. I have used them many times because when I call them I dont have to worry about upselling just a fair assessment of what is needed. I will continue to use EP210 as long as I can.

John Air completed the installation and startup of my new Goodman AC and Furnace. The entire process of dealing with John was exemplary. He was easily reachable through the Thumbtack website/app via chat, and then was reachable prior to the service appointment. He was on time and came prepared with all necessary equipment and tools. He was knowledgeable and professional and completed the work quickly and efficiently. He tried to round down on the number of service hours, but I insisted that he round up and even included a large tip for him because the experience was, by far, the best home contractor experience I've had. I own a rental property and often need contractors to service appliances, etc. I am extremely happy with the entire process with Thumbtack (way better than Home Advisor and Angies List, that spam you with useless emails and phone calls from big-name, expensive contractors. John's hourly labor rate was very reasonable. I give him 5+ stars.

I had originally contacted Colton just a day before I desperately needed my hot water heater fixed! We had problems but were expecting company and needed it done quickly. Colton was extremely responsive with my phone calls and emails and arrived exactly when he said to make the repair. He is friendly and got what we needed done quickly, efficiently and with a price that matched the outstanding value! Thanks to Colton our family visit went off without a hitch! We will use My Mechanical Man any time in the future for any other services we may need!

We've had our air conditioner serviced in the past 20+ years and no one ever fixed the problem we complained about. That is the vent not cooling our bedroom for my husband's COPD problem. Chesapeake Heating & Cooling solved the problem immediately and will surely call them for any future service calls. He was professional, polite and knew what he was doing compared to all the others we had in the past. Thanks and now my husband can sleep better due to the solved problem. Mrs. Myers

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
