Bob has been to my house multiple times now for different issues and is always available whenever anything comes up. The best part of working with Bob is that I know I can trust him, he doesn't try to use any kind of lingo or anything you don't understand in order to sell you on something you don't need. He's always up front and honest, unlike many HVAC contractors I have encountered in the past. I recommend Bob to everyone I know who has any HVAC needs. Highly recommended.

Sam was awesome at doing maintenance to my furnace. He went beyond what I expected by cleaning every inch of the furnace and making sure that the furnace was working properly. I would recommend Sam 100% and will continue to keep him in mind for any future jobs regarding AC/Heating work.

I've chosen Green Air Care for three different complete replacements and numerous repairs and servicing. After trying several different HVAC contractors in the Chicago area previously, I can say they have been the most customers focused, timely, and competitively priced. I highly recommend Green Air Care.

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.

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.

We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

Anthony agreed to help me replace a flush mount light in my dining room with a pendant light. The project took longer than expected, due to the combination of a 130-year-old building and an IKEA fixture, but Anthony stuck with it until the job was done and the quality met his high standards. I was so impressed with his work ethic, craftsmanship, and warm and friendly demeanor. I highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking for help with an electrical project!

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!

Willie is exactly why you want in a contractor. On time, nice, friendly, professional, and his rates are very affordable. He responded and never went dark. He took pictures and texted updates on the project. Honestly, I couldn’t be happier. I will use him for all my electrical needs, and have already referred him to a friend.

Giovanni Painting & Decorating was one of the best experiences I ever had over the past thirty years with any other contractor/subcontractor. Integrity and professionalism became apparent within days, and the quality of work at the end of the project spoke for itself. I would recommend Giovanni to anyone without any hesitation, and will always be my first choice for any future projects in Naples Florida. He is excellent in painting, carpentry, finishing work to extreme detail, and extremely capable and willing to undertake any handyman's tasks and as a result expediting deadlines for completion of the project. Thank you Giovanni.

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!

I recently reached out to ALL HOME REPAIRS for an estimate/quote to install a new 4 ton furnace for my 2 story home. Not only was the estimate very reasonable, but the technician Ivan was awesome - professional guy, very thorough & knowledgeable and gave me great advices and service options.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

How much does it cost to have your furnace cleaned?

To keep your furnace in good working order it’s important to have it regularly cleaned. The national average furnace cleaning cost ranges from $60 to $80, though prices can vary greatly based on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes. An HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance. For example,one company may offer general furnace maintenance for $79 and advanced maintenance for $138. Another company may offer a 38-point maintenance check for $89 and a 64-point maintenance check for $178. According to Energy.gov, a standard furnace cleaning and maintenance visit can include:

  • Checking the vent connection pipe and chimney
  • Checking the physical integrity of the heat exchanger
  • Adjusting the controls to provide optimum air temperatures
  • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
  • Cleaning and oiling the blower
  • Removing soot and corrosion from the furnace
  • Checking the fuel input and flame characteristics
  • Sealing the connections between the furnace and the main ducts

How much does it cost to replace a gas furnace?

The cost to replace your gas furnace will vary based on the type and size of furnace you select, labor and installation costs, and any repairs your HVAC system may need. Nationally, average HVAC prices for a heating specialist range between $1,800 and $2,500. It’s important to select the right size gas furnace for your heating needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t heat your house properly, while a furnace that’s too large will run inefficiently, cycling on and off and likely breaking down sooner. HVAC specialists calculate your exact heat needs by measuring your home and incorporating variables such as the regional climate and your home’s level of insulation. Retail pricing for gas furnaces can range from $650 up to $3,000 and more. The higher the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of the furnace, the more efficient it is at turning fuel into heat and the lower your carbon footprint and utility bill will be. HVAC installation costs are often based on an hourly rate and can range from under $50 to over $100 per hour, depending on the company and the furnace being installed. Higher-end furnaces cost more to install because they require added labor and expertise. For a typical installation, it might take two HVAC installation pros one day or less to remove your old furnace and replace it with a new one.

How much does it cost to have your furnace serviced?

When your furnace isn’t regularly serviced it can operate less efficiently. This increases your energy bills and also prevents your furnace from keeping your home as warm as you like. Keep your furnace properly maintained with regular service. The national average furnace service cost is between $60 and $80. Companies may offer tuneup specials that cover all the necessary testing, tightening, measuring and cleaning to keep your equipment running at top efficiency. If you have a newer system, furnace service costs may be covered by your warranty. Outside of warranty, a basic tuneup might start at $58 and a more advanced maintenance cleaning could be over $120. Here are some signs your furnace may need service:

  • The furnace has stopped functioning entirely.
  • The temperature cannot be regulated.
  • Rooms in the home are either too hot or too cold.
  • The heated air coming from the furnace smells like gas.
  • The thermostat isn’t working.
  • Strange noises are coming from the furnace.
