I liked that Bob from Premier HVAC was easy to talk to and answered all my questions. Bob saved me from being ripped off from another HVAC company. (I saved almost $500 for the same service I received from Premier HVAC.) Premier HVAC Cooling & Heating will be the first number I will call for my HVAC needs. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who would need their services.

Sam worked in our home today, and I am so happy with the amazing job that he did! He showed up at the exact time we had agreed on and spent over 7 hours cleaning our ducts and HVAC. He was so thorough, I could tell that he did a great job because of the time he spent on each vent. He cleaned our dryer vent as well and he also showed me videos of the before and after of everything and what a big difference! This was such a pleasant experience for the price; he was genuinely concerned about the amount of dust and debris and wanted to make sure it was all gone. Hire him, you will not regret it!

Job was overall good. HVAC was not cleaned - only the air filters were cleaned with the vacuum cleaner. I was told to replace the filters myself in 2-3 days. The person who did the work was very professional.

I'm new to home ownership and know nothing about the systems involved with operating a home so when Mike was able to fix our AC issue in about 5 minutes, I was relieved but felt bad for having him drive all the way into the city! He was punctual, polite, professional, knowledgeable and perhaps most importantly, patient. He took the time to explain things as he did some troubleshooting and gave us a clear explanation of the cause of the issue. We'll be having him back for all of our HVAC repairs.

After buying our first home, we didn't expect the transition to be so HARD! It's a good thing that there are good people out there that understand the position people like me are in. Air Duct Cleaning Group, came to my home and cleaned out (what seemed like) 20 YEARS of dust, dirt and pet fur from our ventilation system. They are TRULY a group of people that understood and respected my frustration! I will 100% call them back for any other HVAC services I may need. You should too! Thanks ADCG! My family and I TRULY appreciate it!

First time using thumbtack and it was a great experience. Boris arrived on time and removed my old kitchen faucet and installed a new one in about one hour. He was respectful of my home, even asked if he had to remove his shoes. If I have any plumbing or HVAC projects, I'll make sure to contact him again. Thank you!

I was thoroughly impressed with the service I received from HB Appliance. Hugo contacted me within 8 min. of submitting a work ticket on Thumbtack. We talked briefly on the phone about the problem my dryer was having. Hugo was able to assess the problem and arrange to have the parts for the service appointment the next day. Hugo called me 20 min. prior to our agreed upon appointment time to confirm and say he was on his way, and arrived promptly at the agreed upon time. He talked me through the problem first and gave me a solution including costs, which were very reasonable. He was able to repair my dryer within an hour and didn't charge me a penny more than what we discussed. The dryer was cleaned, put back together and running beautifully, and the room was left clean. Hugo's customer service, knowledge of the machine, and overall demeanor were unprecedented. I will absolutely call HB Appliance for our next appliance/HVAC service needs. Thank you Thumbtack and thank you Hugo!

Fantastic experience on end-to-end install of new HVAC. Tim & Kris were very professional, on time and delivered a high quality install. After install, had a minor issue - received a phone call after 5 mins of my request and issue was resolved by Kris two hours later. What a great response! Thank you!

Hands down the best HVAC solution you could ask for. The crew from Air Mechanic could not have been more helpful, professional, and honest. I will be recommending them to every person I can and I even look forward to using them again. I am normally not a fan of HVAC companies to begin with; Air Mechanics has restored my faith! Thank you so much guys!

Robert is an allstar! My furnace had stopped blowing heat he was able to come over quickly and communicated as the time got closer when he was going to be at my door. Upon inspection things were more difficult than orginally planned, Robert worked longer and harder and had to run to the store to grab parts. He figured out what was wrong and was willing to run out and grab and install the parts that evening with snow falling down. Overall, excellently priced, great communication, knowledgable, professional. Everything I want and expect out of a professional. Will absolutely hire again!

I received a call from the company on the day of the scheduled visit saying that the tech was able to come out 2 hours earlier than originally expected. Alex was efficient and concise and didn't give me a hard time about spending over an hour on the roof just LOOKING for the correct HVAC unit since it wasn't labeled. He identified the problem, quickly went to the nearest store to purchase supplies and had our AC back up and running in no time. It was pricey, however I have no idea what the ballpark cost on our repairs would have been so we could have been getting a great deal. Who knows!

Harold from H & Q Heating and Cooling LLC was very quick to respond once I posted my project. After we spoke and discussed the project details we were able to negotiate a price that fit my budget. He came the next day on time and finished the job within the hour. Harold is easy to work with and most importantly provided quality services. I would definitely recommend him for your HVAC needs.

Everyone at Premium was wonderful. Betty was eager to help and answered all our questions. She was able to schedule us promptly and didn't charge us a dime when Mike came out for what I thought would be routine maintenance and what turned out to be needing a new furnace. Mike gave me a great quote on the spot and was not pushy at all, allowing me to get other quotes and do some research before scheduling for the replacement. He went above and beyond with the install and even added some great features at no additional cost and without prompting. The job was more complicated than initially thought and Mike and his partner came back the very next day to make sure the job was complete. We are so thankful for the great job they did. This is not a fancy operation and has very little online presence- because they focus on what they do- HVAC services. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing HVAC work.

STVU came out when I was having AC issues. My home is only 10 years old and I have been having trouble with the AC unit since I had the house built. Paul and Igor were really great. They came out and diagnosed the issue. Unfortunately it was not something that could be repaired with certainty so I had no real choice but to get a new unit (cost over $3,500 + $500 in diagnosis/pressure test costs). Paul and Igor arranged to install the unit the next day and it has been working very, very well. My only comment is that the price for the new AC unit was slightly high and normally I would have taken time to shop around for comparable bids just to be sure I am getting fair pricing. I did not really have a chance to do that since I have a 17 month old child in the house and needed working AC as soon as possible. If you are getting a new AC unit I would suggest getting at least 3 bids before making your decision. Not all AC units are of equal quality and I am sure the unit STVU installed is good. My suggestion is in no way meant to infer that STVU did anything less than an excellent job. I feel their workmanship and responsiveness was very, very good.

I had humidifier installation service from Jaime. I found him on Thumbtack and he was very patient answering all my questions before the project. He was exact on time for my appointment, which is very rare among all the contractors I've used. The space on the return duct is pretty tight for the humidifier. He moved an electric box and reconnect furnace flue to make space. The installation was done smoothly without any issues, and he cleaned up everything before left. I really enjoyed his service and I will definitely call him again for my future needs on my HVAC system.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How much does it cost to get central air?

Prices for central-air HVAC systems will vary. The national average to hire an HVAC specialist is $2,920-$3,670 but can run as high as $5,000 or even $12,000 depending on the capacity you need and other factors. Installing central air conditioning requires an entire system that works together to draw hot air out of your home. The system includes an outdoor unit, which houses the condenser and compressor, and the evaporator coils. If you don’t have an existing duct system, ductwork will need to be installed, which will affect labor and material costs. Leaking or damaged ducts will also need to be replaced.

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.

How much does it cost for a new air conditioning unit?

If you’re ready for a new air conditioning unit, it’s time to start exploring HVAC prices. The price will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you buy and its cooling capacity. Window units, which require minimal installation, are one of the most affordable options on the market. If you’re purchasing from a big-box store, you can expect to pay approximately $120-$1,000 for a window unit. Window units are appealing for their quick setup and relatively low cost, but they can use more energy over time than central air and only cool the room in which they’re installed. Portable air conditioners don’t have the cooling power of a window unit, but they do have the perk of being transportable from room to room. Expect to pay between $225 and $800 for a portable air conditioner, on average. For a whole-house air conditioning system with coils, condenser and line (not including installation or ductwork), the cost from a big-box store can range from approximately $2,000 to $4,000 or more. If you don’t have (and don’t want to put in) ducts, a ductless mini-split air conditioner is a good option, although pricey up front. Pricing can range from $650 to $4,250 per unit on average; you’ll need one unit for each room in which you want temperature control.
