They did very good job. I have 32 vents at my house. They worked until 9:30 pm to make sure all the vents have been cleaned. They are very professional and know what they are doing. Their office hour is flexible. I have a hard time to find a company which can do the air duct cleaning after 5:00 pm.

It has now been several months since I had Green Air Care come and inspect my heating and air-conditioning system when they cleaned the vents in our entire house. During the inspection we uncovered many areas where our unit is leaking air “air gaps” in the ventilation where the air-conditioned or heated air escapes. We had Green Air Care come back to help us seal these leaks and since then, besides the air quality being better in our house due to cleaned vents we have actually seen a substantial cost saving in our electric bills now that our heat/AC unit is working more efficiently. What a quick return on investment, that also happens to result in cleaner air quality. We are certainly having Green Air Care come back for next HVAC services and needs.

Melvin inspected and replaced the exhaust duct for my dryer. He added an elbow piece of pipe at the back of the dryer then attached the vent material. He removed and cleaned the outside piece and caulked around it. He also cleaned inside the dryer where the lint filter is located. He was very professional seemed knowledgeable about the appliance. His fee was reasonable. I would use Das Flores again if needed.

I needed to have my air conditioner replaced. The owner of ComfortAire Inc and his technician showed up on time to give me a quote. They were much more thorough than the other company who came to give an estimate. Unlike their competitor, they studied my system before providing quote. Their price was also reasonable. When they did the installation, they were on time. The job took as long as they said it would. The unit is working great. I am really happy because of my significant electric bill savings and how quiet the unit runs. I recommend ComfortAire Heating & Air conditioning Inc. for great, caring service.

I had five estimates when I needed a new furnace and an air conditioner 4 years ago. I am so glad I chose TDH. I liked that I got to talk to the owner who came to my condo. He seemed like the most knowledgeable representative of any of these companies. The 15 year transferable warranty is great. And the customer service is excellent. I purchased Trane and have had absolutely no problems, thus far. I highly recommend this company.

Jason provided a high level of service. We had other HVAC/Boiler vendors and all of them recommended a boiler based on the square footage of the unit as opposed to the length of the coils in the house. Jason properly measured and recommended a boiler for us that was not only right for the space, but right for the existing infrastructure. Jason was professional, very knowledgeable, punctual and did the work at a very fair price. Jason also installed a water heater for us the same day. I highly recommend Jason for boiler and water heater installations!

My secondary air conditioning unit failed. They were quick to respond and came out the same day. The accurately assessed the issue, and gave me a number of options including fixing or buying new, at different price points. When I chose to fix the issue, they clearly explained the risks, but respected my decision. They followed up on the technicians work. While they had to order a part, they quickly installed and got the right bit working as soon as it arrived. The unit has been working great for the last month. I would definitely use them again.

MCW saved the day when our furnace needed emergency replacement in dangerously cold weather. Speedy response, prompt and quality installation of our furnace, and overall an exceptional experience. Matt was wonderful to work with and went above and beyond in answering all my questions and ensuring everything was done right- even including helping us replace another household appliance that was past its prime. I thoroughly recommend MCM Heating and Cooling!

Thomas Martinez is very professional, knowledgeable, punctual and a very nice person to do business with. He responded to my inquiry in less than 10 minutes, confirmed that he could do what I requested and had the part (an igniter) on his truck. The price was about $100.00 less than what a well known competitor company wanted. He came out the next day at the time agreed on and completed installation in about half an hour. He explained in detail what he was doing and actually showed me the replacement igniter and the old one. I am very pleased with T.M. Heating & Cooling with the work he did and will call him again with any issues pertaining to my furnace. I will recommend him to others requiring his expertise. By the way, prior contacting T.M., I left voice messages with two other ‘reputable’ heating & cooling companies. Neither has yet to return my calls. Thanks a million Thomas!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
