Bob was very responsive, showed up on time, did a good job of diagnosing the problem and repaired my furnace for a fair and reasonable price. I would certainly hire him again and recommend him to others looking for HVAC work.

I was initially a bit hesitant about hiring Green Air Care based upon the yelp reviews... 3 1/2 stars is fairly low in my opinion. However, I did hire them... and I was extremely satisfied with the service provided and would highly recommend them for anyone looking to have their furnace and ductwork cleaned. The whole process was flawless... When I called on the phone for ", the woman who answered provide me a detailed overview of the process, a detailed price quote, and a reasonable timeframe window of when the workers would arrive at my home. A team of two workers came, and they were extremely knowledgeable and polite... They were careful to not drag their ladders across our hardwood floors and not to bump their equipment into our white walls. The whole process took less than two hours, and there were before and after photos taken to show just how much cleaner the ducts were after the process. The workers also replaced my furnace air filters upon my request. Additionally, they noticed that the filter on our humidifier had not been changed and was collecting, I believe, calcium deposits... They recommended a replacement in order to prevent damage, and not to use the humidifier until the new filter was in place. Overall, I was extremely satisfied. Although I received quotes for a lower price, I am definitely comfortable with the service I received for the price paid. For what it's worth, Green Air Care is also NADCA certified, and the lower-priced service providers were not. I should also say that I initially planned to use Stanley Steamers... apparently they can clean ductwork and not just carpets. I had a team come out to give me a quote, but when the actual team came out to do the cleaning, their equipment would not work on my furnace. Needless to say, I was quite annoyed... But that's what I get for trying to hire a carpet cleaning business to clean my HVAC ducts.

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!

Mr. Lewis replied promptly and was able to schedule immediately. The day of the appointment contacted me to see if he could arrive a bit earlier which was fine by me as I had a busy day ahead. Prior to entering my home he put on booties to ensure not to mess up my wood floor and took every precaution forward ensuring the same (with tools, etc.). The job took longer than we both anticipated (missing a wire he had to run out to purchase) but he was very thorough and professional through the whole installation and never seemed to be rushing. At the end he not only kept the cost to the price he quoted, he followed up a few hours later to ensure everything was working well. Very impressed and will definitely recommend to anyone I know looking for HVAC help.

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!

We were able to get in touch with GTC Comfort Air through Thumbtack. The representative and owner, Vlad, was wonderful in responding to our request in a timely manner. The quote was very reasonable compared to the other quotes that we got. The price point was great! Because smaller firms have fewer overheads than bigger and more established firms, the quote was a third less compared to the two bigger HVAC contractors in our area. He was very knowledgeable and identified issues with our system and we were able to install a new system in a timely manner. I would strongly recommend GTC for those with HVAC issues or want a new system.

It was great dealing with an honest guy like John. he was able to come out and do an estimate on short notice and give us his professional opinion and best options without up selling us. Also recommended we get a few more estimates which furthers his honesty. Our HVAC system is old so we were prepared for the worst but wanted a second opinion from a pro which I got from John.

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!!!!

Hired this company to install a new furnace. First of all they showed up on the scheduled time like they had said, the tech was very knowledgeable about the equipment and gave me very reasonable prices! They also have a great warranty! The tech gave me a variety of furnace manufacturers that I could choose from rather than just selling me on one unit. I will definitely be calling this company back for all my HVAC needs! Will recommend to everyone I know!

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.
