Bob was wonderful. He responded to my message promptly and came the same day. He diagnosed and repaired my furnace issue and had the heat back up and running in no time. He is my new go to for heating and air conditioning. I would not hesitate to recommend him and look forward to being able to refer to others to him.

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.

Ariadne Heating and Cooling was great! Our garbage disposal was leaking, so I put in a request on Thumbtack. They responded immediately and were able to come out the next day! Juan came out for an initial upfront charge and informed us we needed a new garbage disposal (not surprising because the original was about 10 years old). He went to the store, purchased the new disposal, brought back the receipt, installed the new one, and still only charged us the initial upfront cost and the price of the garbage disposal. He was extremely cordial and professional and he provided quality work. We were very appreciative of this great service!

I have nothing but the utmost praise and respect for the excellent service and professionalism exerted by the Comfort Aire Heating & Air Conditioning Company. My experience with this company began a couple years ago, when my (19th century) AC/Unit died and went on to glory (LOL)… I was to host a family reunion and had family traveling from the south where AC is an absolute must. I needed a reputable and trustworthy company that would not take advantage of my circumstances. So, when a friend recommended the Comfort Aire Heating & Air Conditioning Company, I took her advice and contacted the owner. Mr. R., was such an AWESOME, polite and respectful gentleman, who was gracious to come and provide an assessment of my AC/Unit, and subsequently walk me through the process of securing a new AC/Unit. Mr. R. was very professional, prompt, meticulous and thorough in his services. He was excellent at communicating unto me and showing me what was going on with my old unit, using layman terminology and examples that allowed me to clearly understand the matter. Mr. R., then communicated to me clearly what the new unit would be able to do once it was installed. Mr. R., was well versed, organized, timely, and experienced in his craft and did not take advantage of the circumstances as other companies probably would have done. I was very comfortable, confident and pleased with the knowledge, work, ethics and skill sets exhibited by the owner and his workers respectively. I have since recommended Mr. R., and his Comfort Aire Heating & Air Conditioning Company to other friends and family members, and would “HIGHLY” recommend his company and services to others. THANK YOU!!! Comfort Aire Heating & Air Conditioning Company again for the PHENOMENAL SERVICE provided to me during my time of need

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.

Vitaliy was great! He came out for a quote the same day I contacted him and the job was done just a few days later. We're very happy with our new central air conditioning. It works well! Vitaliy upgraded both the unit and a pump free of charge because of our home's unique quirks. I would definitely recommend him! Thank you, Vitaliy!

Most recently an A/C installation. Thanks Robert!

EXCELLENT company!!!! John Polermi is the person I worked with and he and his team did a great job. This company installed a new home heating system for me and a new air conditioning part. They were reliable, professional, fairly priced and left the work area spotless after a major installation. I give this company my highest recommendation.

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!

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!!!!

The company did an outstanding job on the installation of my new air conditioning unit. I was so happy that the company came out right away to give an estimate and then installed the new air within a few days after the estimate. The pricing of the new air was so reasonable and the cleaning of my furnace was included. The company came out the day they said they would come and despite having an earlier job that they needed to finish they came and stayed until 10pm to complete my air installation. They could have come back the next day but they stars and completed the job!! I was so impressed. The air is keeping us cool!!!! I would highly recommend this company to family and friends.

    Never ever judge a book by its cover. Early morning I open my door for the gentleman that is scheduled to fix my air conditioner, My first words in my head was, Ohhhh Boy, this gentleman is awfully Young, handsome but very young looking, so I told myself I hope he knows what he's doing. So I repeat Never judge a book by its cover. Because of this gentleman and his Professional job skills. I can breathe better less allergies if any and believe it or not a smaller electric bill. he thoroughly took his time to clean all my vents, replaced the part that needed to be repaired also found some minor imperfections that needed repair which is what actually brought down my electrical bill at least 20%. Can't thank this gentleman enough. I highly recommend johnnyray from Advanced Air to all family, friends, and those in need of heating and air repairs. BREATH FRESH AIR/STAY COOL........ENJOY LIFE!!!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts 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.

    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.
