Central Air Conditioning Installation or Replacement

  • 26 hires on Thumbtack
  • Serves Marietta, GA
Had a new heat pump installed as well as the condenser (outside unit). From the quote to the installation - everything went smoothly. I commend Hobbs on their straight forward - no games - great price quote. Due to original setup from 1987 - They had to move the condenser and rework the wiring and deconstruct old unit box and build a new one for heat pump to sit on, as well as - add a condensation unit and piping and was well under other quotes. The installers, Javier and Victor were very knowledgeable, polite and respectful and really took pride in their work. Pedro was super honest about not selling me more than what I absolutely needed - as we did have a budget. Trust me, You won’t go wrong hiring Hobbs!!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hasan is an honest and knowledge HVAC technician which rare to find. I called him to replace furnace components which the other HVAC company suggest to replace. His pricing is very fair; about half less than the other HVAC company charges. Even that, he said is not necessary to replace and spend money for this job since system still working well. I will definitely use him on future maintenance and HVAC repair needs.

I can’t say enough about how pleased I am with the work Alpha Tech Mechanical has completed on my home. They performed a full system replacement including the duct work for my upstairs HVAC system. I work in the software technology field that helps supports many aspects of Facility Maintenance and have extensive knowledge of this industry. Alpha Tech Mechanical fully understands HVAC and building science in every detail and applies industry best practices in their work. In my experience with other HVAC companies they simply do “break-fix” repair but never try to or want to address overall system issues. This is in part because it may not be the most profitable approach for their business or lack on industry knowledge. Additionally, many other HVAC companies either don’t care or don’t know how ensure your HVAC system is performing to optimal efficiency and capacity. Jack and his team truly understand all of this and therefore can take a completely different approach. Alpha Tech Mechanical took their time and walked me through their thorough diagnosis they performed on my new system during the commissioning process. This ensured me that the system they installed was performing to desired specification. After all was said and done the results showed that the system was performing well beyond the manufacturer specifications. I fully accredit this to Jack and his team doing what I would consider the best quality work I have ever seen in residential HVAC. Here’s to Building Science, Thank You Alpha Tech Mechanical

This is the second time I have worked with Jermaine, and I'm happy to say he is the same professional, courteous, hard working HVAC repairman that I met in 2015. Jermaine worked quickly to diagnose my AC's problem and determined that a capacitor was faulty and burned out. After that, he advised me on ways that I could save money, and gave me options, instead of saddling me with a huge replacement and overhaul. I appreciate that. I have found dealing and working with him, that he is responsive, dependable and genuinely cares that the job he completes for you, seeks value for your money and is the very best he can be. I will certainly call Jermaine again for my HVAC needs.

Jack has installed completely new Bryant system for me in a home I am currently remodeling. Very professional, knowledgeable and prompt.

He has done an excellent job and I would highly recommend him to anyone for their HVAC needs both new install and repairs.

Great, professional work installing a new central AC within 24 hours at a price that beat their competitors. You get the same warranty with everyone, as it's from the manufacturer, but they even added some maintenance onto that. It's so easy to get absolutely hosed by HVAC companies. Tell these guys your budget, and they'll do their best to make something work.

Christopher was responsive and accommodating to an urgent issue late on Saturday evening. He installed a new thermostat, took his time to explain how it worked and also highlighted some additional issues he noticed with our HVAC unit (improper installation by another technician). I am happy with his work and will use his services again. His pricing was also fair.

Anthony responded right away with a great quote. He came out the same day. He was able to repair my A/C in just a short period of time and only repaired what was required to get the air back up and cooling. He was very professional and very polite. Atl TLC Mechanical is top notch and will be the first HVAC I will call going forward! Thank you Anthony!

Hassan did an excellent job installing new Rheem AC and Furnace at my house. He is very professional and from the beginning I felt that he knew he job very well. He made recommendations, went over different options and gave me quote that was very reasonable. Hassan was timely in keeping his appointment, did a through checkup of the system after installation, properly cleaned up and removed old equipment. I found him to be a friendly, honest and reliable. I was very satisfied with Hassan and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a real professional working on their HVAC work/installations!

After being told by another "AC Repair Man" that I needed a new Fan Motor & 3 pounds of freon, Mr. Kidd came out and told me all I needed was a new capacitor. Without me telling him that I was quoted $700 for a new motor he told me what he would charge for the same motor. His charge would have been $234! He also told me that I didn't need ANY freon - another lie from the other repairman. I was so pleased to find an honest HVAC Man. I will never call anyone but Mr. Kidd and will recommend him to anyone I know that needs service!

I couldn't be happier with the service, price, and expertise of having CoolMax diagnose our problem and recommend the best quality units to replace our entire HVAC system last week. Our A/C stopped working last Thursday around noon and Hassan showed up at 6 pm as promised and I was blown away with his knowledge and the state of the art tools he used in attempting to repair our existing system. I could tell he was genuinely disappointed that he was unable to fix it and it would require a new system to replace our 20-year-old unit. He was able to give me a ballpark price before he left and followed up with a solid quote later that evening. I immediately approved it and a crew showed up at 4 pm on Friday and dismantled all the components of the old system and another crew showed up with the packaged new system and stayed late to have it completely up and running before they left that day at exactly the price I was quoted. CoolRay gave me pricing for performing the same scope of work in 2018, so I knew what a great deal this was! They did an outstanding job! The quality, sound level & performance of the new product is much better than I expected for such a reasonable price. The hundreds of reviews for them are spot on and it's great to work with such a trustworthy person as I found Hassan to be. :-)
