Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Why is my air conditioner leaking water?

An air conditioner leaking inside the house is a common problem. It could indicate that the air filter is dirty. Or, one of the following may be the culprit:

  • Clogged condensate drain line
  • Leaky, damaged, cracked or rusted drain pan
  • Dirty or broken coils
  • Frozen evaporator coils
  • Broken condensate pump
  • Not enough refrigerant
  • Disconnected drain line

If your AC is leaking, contact a repair service to find out what the problem is — and how much it will cost to fix it.

Is it worth it to install central air?

Depending on where you live, it might be worth it to install central air. Central air makes your house comfortable on hot summer days. And although it’s hard to predict if adding central air will increase your home’s value, prospective homebuyers will certainly notice if it’s missing.

Another advantage of central air is that it can help dehumidify your home. Not only will it make your home more comfortable and enjoyable, but it can also  help prevent mold from growing or spreading.

Contact the best HVAC contractors near you to learn more about the central air installation process and to start receiving free estimates.

Can I install central air myself?

While you may be able to do some preparation work for central air installation, you should hire a licensed contractor to complete the project and handle the air conditioning refrigerants. 

Also, unless you have the proper credentials, you risk making common mistakes when installing central air. This may include installing the wrong-size furnace, improperly installing ductwork and exhaust systems, and incorrectly managing drainage.

To ensure your central air is installed correctly, contact the best HVAC pros near you and start getting free estimates today.

Does central air add value to a home?

A central air unit or HVAC system may add value to your home. Or, if you’re in the process of selling your home, it may help you close a sale.

The Remodeling Impact report found that 20% of realtors have suggested that home sellers replace their HVAC before attempting to sell their homes, and 7% said this project did help close a sale. 

Talk with an expert to figure out if adding an HVAC system is a good idea for your home. And contact the best HVAC pros near you to get free estimates so you’ll know how much this project will cost you.

Does an HVAC technician need to enter my home?

Because most HVAC systems are located in the home, it’s likely that an HVAC technician would need to enter yours when working on the projects. However, there might be exceptions. Some HVAC systems are located in garages or in areas of the house that are sectioned off. During the consultation, ask your technician if they'll need to enter your home.

When you contact local technicians, ask if they’ll perform a video call in place of a traditional consultation. Be sure to send all materials like photos and documents digitally, and comply with all relevant guidelines.

Do HVAC technicians offer remote or virtual services?

Because HVAC technicians need to be physically present to do their work, they have not conventionally offered remote or virtual services. However, with the importance of social distancing due to COVID-19, the need for remote capabilities is greater than ever. If you come across a profile that states the HVAC technician or AC professional is offering remote services, message the pro to find out what those services include.

Consult with your technician to see if the technician will be able to perform a video call consultation. You can find local technicians near you by searching online.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up a safe consultation or appointment with an HVAC technician during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by comparing technicians in your area in an online search. Message or call technicians to ask whether they can perform a consultation over the phone or even over a video call. This way, they can assess the problem without increasing the risk of virus transmission by visiting your house. 

If it turns out the service is essential, you’ll need to follow CDC guidelines as well as local government guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.

Can I use digital payments to pay for central air conditioning services?

The use of digital payment platforms -- like Google Pay, PayPal, Zelle, Venmo and Square Cash -- is common among air conditioning technicians. Currently, the COVID-19 pandemic is improving the adoption of these platforms as a means of helping social distancing.

As you compare local air conditioning technicians online, contact them to see if they’ll accept digital payments. Also, discuss strategies for completing the job while complying with safety guidelines for reducing the risk of exposure.

How can I find out if an HVAC technician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Currently, governments on both the federal and local levels are updating guidelines on what qualifies as an essential service. To see whether an HVAC technician is considered an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic, check your city or state’s government website. 

For federal guidelines, check CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which identifies 16 critical infrastructure sectors during the crisis. But note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an HVAC technician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a technician for an HVAC repair or installation project, practice current social distancing guidelines. This may require remaining outside while the technician works or ensuring the technician can work in a sectioned-off area or outbuilding.

Comply with social distancing guidelines while the technician is performing work. Do not make physical contact with technicians, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, sanitize all involved spaces and surface and pay using a digital platform instead of cash or a check.

We contacted Luke at Viking Air to investigate the foul odor coming from our HVAC system. He inspected both upstairs and downstairs, cleaned the coils, emptied the drains, and diagnosed a little bit of mold that was creating the odor (all for just $39). He installed a UV-C light in the handler and ultimately eliminated the foul, moist odor from our upstairs HVAC. Luke was courteous, thorough, and a true professional. Will not hesitate to contact him should we have any future HVAC issues.

This was by far the best A/C experience I’ve ever had. Murdock was on time and extremely professional. He fixed the issues with ease and took the time to also educate me about the work being done. He’s also very reasonably priced. I plan on hiring him for all my future HVAC work.

We needed an HVAC install. T.J., the owner was very informative. He offered the lowest bid and had great reviews. His crew was punctual and kept my wife and me informed every step of the way. T.J. even arrived for a quality control inspection and to answer any additional question that we may have had.

I highly recommend Cool Dogs for all your HVAC needs. Chris gave me the best quote on AC replacement, showed up when he said he would, did an awesome job on the installation and cleanup, and to top it off gave me a free inspection and cleaning of both of my units in 6 and 12 months. I will be using Cool Dogs for everything from now on.

Alumni Air called me within 10 minutes of posting a request on Thumbtack and came to my house in an hour. They assessed the problem and had to order parts. They came back when they said they would, installed the new equipment and left my house so neat you never would have known they were there. I would recommend them to anyone for HVAC services. They are prompt, neat and professional. The price was not bad either. They are my go-to guys in the future.

Extremely impressed with their HVAC knowledge/experience. I had them install an A/C drain overflow cutoff switch, which everyone should do in Florida if you don’t have one. Unlike the other people I called, Professor Cool didn’t charge me an unreasonable fee just to come out. They were transparent about price which was fair and honest. Electronic payment and invoicing, very professional. All around great value! Glad to support a local small business.

Onier from Volcano A/C is the most honest and reliable A/C technician I have worked with. He has very fair pricing and did a very professional job in replacing the A/C unit for me and my friend. He worked on both Saturday and Sunday to replace both out Air conditioning units without charging any extra for the weekend service. I would highly recommend him for a honest and reliable job with any HVAC system and would for sure recommend him to all my contacts needing A/C assistance

My AC went out on a Saturday morning and I called my Home Warranty Company to fix the issue. The AC Company called and scheduled a window of 10 - 1 on Tuesday. I reached out to Alex AC on Thumbtack because I wanted to get some quotes on replacing the system in case the freon was gone (existing system was pretty old). I scheduled Alex for 2 pm on Tuesday. At 2 pm, Alex showed up while the other AC technician had not. Before the other technician arrived, Alex had already diagnosed the issue - a leaky evaporator coil (all freon was gone). Alex said he could come out the next day to replace both the compressor and air handler. He quoted me a price for labor and parts which was below what I could achieve in parts alone. Alex showed up with his team at 8:30 am the next day and by 12:30 my new HVAC was blowing cold air. I noticed a condensation issue the following day and called Alex. He came by the same day and fixed the issue. I have already recommended Alex to two others in my office who are contemplating getting a new HVAC system.

This is a phenomenal, local company, ran by two guys I completely trust. Rob and Danny are both really good at explaining what is going on, and they even asked me to climb onto the roof where the compressor is and showed me what was happening. Can't get better service than these guys, and they have definitely gained my trust. Also they will beat anybody's prices. They gave me a quote nearly half the amount of another company (but that company was definitely trying to rip me off). If you have any issues with HVAC, these are the guys to go to! Thanks Rob and Danny, it was a pleasure getting to know you guys.

Alex, one word , AMAZING! I sent a request on Thumbtack on a Sunday and he was at my house in 4 hours. He came to check everything out and gave me quotes for 3 options. I chose one and he came out less than 48 hours later. My new HVAC system was installed in 5 1/2 hours and running well! His pricing is overwhelmingly fair and his professionalism is second to none. I will definitely be using him again on other projects. I'm a stickler and tough to please too. Alex exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

2019: I had Ron come out to replace a water heater. He got it done the first day, replacing a 50 gallon Natural Gas heater for under $1000. Ron is my go-to guy for all things plumbing & HVAC. 2018: Ron fixed my other AC coil saving me the cost of replacing the entire unit. Smooth and efficient as always. 2017: Ron came right out to diagnose my AC issue and quickly realized it was a leak in my coil. He was able to get parts and the repairs done the next day. My AC is blowing nice and cold again. His experience and knowledge made the job go very smoothly. I would definitely hire him again.
