Bob has been to my house multiple times now for different issues and is always available whenever anything comes up. The best part of working with Bob is that I know I can trust him, he doesn't try to use any kind of lingo or anything you don't understand in order to sell you on something you don't need. He's always up front and honest, unlike many HVAC contractors I have encountered in the past. I recommend Bob to everyone I know who has any HVAC needs. Highly recommended.

Robert responded to our request within minutes, set up a time for the very next day, arrived on time, got straight to work, clearly was well prepared, installed two Nest thermostats, even worked on wiring on the actual HVAC units, gave me an obsessively detailed worksheet with the serial numbers for the Nest associated with each HVAC system, then recommended maintenance on those units, then stuck to the honest estimate he had provided before starting the job. We couldn't be more satisfied with this professional.

This job installed and supported by Casa is a 3 unit mini-split ductless AC system for my 100 year old bungalow without ducts. Let me tell you something about Mike, owner of Casa Heating & Cooling. I received a bid from him as a first-time user of Thumbtack, driven by a frustration in my inability to constructively collaborate with big-box HVAC general contractors on what I was after. I immediately received a request to bid from Mike which resulted in 2 very thorough site visits to properly estimate my job and the myriad of manufacturer options available. Mike worked with me to ensure that he was quoting exactly what I was looking for in terms of capability of the system, and he configured the solution to be expandable in the future - all for the same price or maybe even less than the original big-box quote. Mike oversaw the installation himself, doing much of the heavy lifting and complex pieces of the project on his own - and was onsite during the entire process. Mike is also extremely reliable for support, much of which is a result of user-error and general dumbness on my part, but he is extremely responsive both in communication and on-site visits. Do NOT hesitate to do business with Casa - he's the real deal and provides better service and better value than the big names like Four Seasons. You won't be disappointed.

Boris did a great job updating my home thermostat to an wifi Ecobee3. We needed new wiring form the furnace unit up to the dining room, so it took longer than we expected. Very affordable and professional. Will call him again if i need any more HVAC work done!

I would definitely recommend Ronier with ComfortAire for AC diagnostics and repair. Before I even hired him, he was able to give me a probable diagnosis of the problem with my 1990s AC unit just by my description of what was wrong (and was correct). He promptly came out on a Sunday when he said he would, and fixed the issue in about 20 minutes. Never once suggested that we needed a new, expensive unit like we feared might be necessary. He was also super friendly and genuine. He gave us some tips for our HVAC systems in general and never once tried to sell us anything extra. In fact, he told us we didn't need to do certain costly services or maintence I thought we might need to do on our systems. I'll definitely use Ronier again when my HVAC systems need help.

Doyle was great! Not only did he install our three light fixtures (which were more complicated than anticipated) he took a look at our HVAC system and was able to identify and fix a noise issue at no cost! On top of that, he was a nice guy. Would definitely hire him again to help with things around the house that are out of our skill set.

I hardly ever write reviews but professionals like Bobby deserve to be noticed. He is professional and honest. My AC unit wasn’t cooling and I arranged a few quotes, the first person that came told me my AC unit was shot and I needed to replace the whole thing. That was the only solution provided to me. Being that my unit isn’t that old I was shocked. Luckily I also made an appt with Bobby. He explained what the problem is and what could be causing it, and told me what my options were (replacing the unit will need to be done but still has life in it). I canceled the other appt I had lined up because Bobby’s honesty, knowledge, and pricing deserved my business. He will definitely be my go to person going forward. Thank you Bobby!!

It was great dealing with an honest guy like John. he was able to come out and do an estimate on short notice and give us his professional opinion and best options without up selling us. Also recommended we get a few more estimates which furthers his honesty. Our HVAC system is old so we were prepared for the worst but wanted a second opinion from a pro which I got from John.

Jaime Ramos installed an HVAC unit last year and i couldn't be happier with his service. He was punctual which was very important to me since i have a busy schedule. The unit was installed in a professional manner and he took the time to explain how to keep the unit functioning in an effecient manner to save money on my monrthly bill. I would definetly recommend Jaime to anyone that needs HVAC work.

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 often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

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.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

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.
