I appreciated the detail he provided for the installation of the ecobee4 smart thermostat. I also appreciated the advice he provided for further maintenance on my furnace. I regret the vacuuming of the vents. If I would have known that a regular vacuum was used, I would've done it myself and saved myself $65. Definitely not his fault. He is very good and thorough.

On December 20 my furnace stopped blowing heat on one of the coldest days of this year. I used thumbtack in the past with good results so a few companies inboxed within a few hours and I decided to go with Comfort Aire. Ronier contacted me same day and said he was in the area and could come by that evening to check it. At first glance thought it was a simple fix but ended up needing a new furnace. I knew I only had a year tops with the old unit so the very next day I received a new furnace for a reasonable price. Ron is very professional, honest, and trustworthy and I will definitely use this company for any future heating and cooling issues.

Definitely deserves 5 stars! The kind of professional/customer service I didn't think existed anymore...I hired TDH due to a smell coming from my furnace whenever our system changed from a/c to heating. A technician came to my home for a free estimate the same day I made the request. Of course once a technician came, the smell no longer was there. He still took apart my furnace, noticed everything was clean, didn't try to up-sell me on services I didn't need - and even made suggestions on what could be causing the smell and ways to prevent it in the future...ALL FREE OF CHARGE! Great team and service, really understands the idea of customer service - the least I can do is recommend them to others! My wife and I will definitely use TDH for all relevant future services.

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!

When I bought my A/C & furnace I shopped around, so I have seen a lot of what is out there in this area. I choose TLS Heating and Cooling for a reason. Tim was knowledgeable and explained the details in a way that I could understand. He gave some great options for price and followed through with details that came up later. He cares.

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!

Reagan did an awesome job! I had called several plumbing places and they told me the job would be a 2 hour minimum. Reagan was done within 35 minutes! He also removed the old toilet and put it in the trash and cleaned up when he was done! We will definitely use him again and highly recommend you use him too!

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.

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 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 will it cost me to replace my furnace?

The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.
