Our furnace went out at 10:30pm on New Year's Eve. I decided to shut it off overnight, and try it again in the morning. After sleeping in until about noon, I tried the furnace, but the blower still wouldn't come on and was making a high pitched noise instead. I was unsatisfied by HVAC companies that I had used in the past, so I decided to check the phone book and do a quick internet search for companies that serviced our area. I found thumbtack.com which proved to be a great aid in getting help fast. Within 15 minutes of registering on thumbtack, I had 3 separate quotes, the first of which was Bob's (and today is New Year's Day). Bob's quote contained the most information, not only the cost for the service call, but the probable price for the repair as well. His reviews were very positive, so I gave him a call. The temperature inside my house had dropped to about 50 degrees by this point and was continuing to drop. After speaking with Bob, I sent him photos of my furnace (at his request). He told me he could fix the problem and quoted me a specific price over the phone. Bob was at my home less than an hour after we spoke on the phone and the furnace was fixed within 45 minutes of his arrival and the price was exactly what he estimated over the phone. Bob was friendly, courteous, did a great job, and offered excellent advice. I will definitely call him in the future whenever in need of Heating and A/C related services. I highly recommend Bob, you will not be disappointed.

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.

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!

Ron & his assistant, Rahm, did an outstanding job changing my flue pipe (see pics)! Unmatched honesty, professionalism and value! Other pros wanted to overcharge me - but Ron came to the rescue AND within my budget - even checked my chimney cap at no additional cost! He's our guy now for anything HVAC-related!

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!

It was a pleasure to work with the SirChill team. My technician Denzel was an expert, he was punctual, professional, and pleasant to be around. His quote was fair, and he detailed all of his work, in an easy to understand manner—helping me as a first time home buyer make sense of a critical HVAC issue, and helping me rectify quickly. I highly recommend the SirChill service!

Paul from STVU set up an initial meeting with me with his technicians and they explained the work that would be necessary after inspecting and determining the root cause of my Air Conditioning problem. I opted to purchase a new furnace through them because mine was really old. I feel the quality of product I chose was good for my property and the work that they performed was excellent. Previous work completed created an issue and Igor was able to find out what the problem was after just a short period and my AC has been running perfectly since! I absolutely encourage anyone looking for HVAC service to contact STVU and set up an appointment to see what they can do for you. Highly recommended!!!!

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.
