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 is great! He was able to clean my dryer vent timely and he was even early to the appointment. He showed me everything he was doing. He was incredibly conscientious and cleaned up the area so well. And his price was $50 less than the other contractors I contacted. I will definitely be using him again. I highly recommend calling Sam for your vent cleaning and dryer cleaning needs.

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.

This job installed and supported by Casa is a 3 unit mini-split ductless AC system for my 100 year old bungalow without ducts. Let me tell you something about Mike, owner of Casa Heating & Cooling. I received a bid from him as a first-time user of Thumbtack, driven by a frustration in my inability to constructively collaborate with big-box HVAC general contractors on what I was after. I immediately received a request to bid from Mike which resulted in 2 very thorough site visits to properly estimate my job and the myriad of manufacturer options available. Mike worked with me to ensure that he was quoting exactly what I was looking for in terms of capability of the system, and he configured the solution to be expandable in the future - all for the same price or maybe even less than the original big-box quote. Mike oversaw the installation himself, doing much of the heavy lifting and complex pieces of the project on his own - and was onsite during the entire process. Mike is also extremely reliable for support, much of which is a result of user-error and general dumbness on my part, but he is extremely responsive both in communication and on-site visits. Do NOT hesitate to do business with Casa - he's the real deal and provides better service and better value than the big names like Four Seasons. You won't be disappointed.

First time using thumbtack and it was a great experience. Boris arrived on time and removed my old kitchen faucet and installed a new one in about one hour. He was respectful of my home, even asked if he had to remove his shoes. If I have any plumbing or HVAC projects, I'll make sure to contact him again. Thank you!

Comfortaire did an A+ job. My ac unit went out on one of the hottest days in July. I found Comfortaire on Thumbtack. I reached out to them and two other companies about service. I received pre-packaged automated responses from two of the companies, but the one from Comfortaire was personalized and provided different resolutions to my issue. I asked him if he could come out and he was at my house by 8 a.m. I have learned that most contractors are good at their trade and not great on the office side (emails, phone calls, etc.) which is frustrating for professionals. This has NOT been my experience with Comfortaire. Every step of the process was incredibly seamless. Ronier was extremely helpful and patient as I asked questions in an effort to better understand what he was proposing for my issue. Ronier diagnosed my issue, showed me the problem and installed a new unit by 2 p.m. The install was Professional and quality work. I will definitely call Comfortaire for all my AC/HVAC in the future.

I was thoroughly impressed with the service I received from HB Appliance. Hugo contacted me within 8 min. of submitting a work ticket on Thumbtack. We talked briefly on the phone about the problem my dryer was having. Hugo was able to assess the problem and arrange to have the parts for the service appointment the next day. Hugo called me 20 min. prior to our agreed upon appointment time to confirm and say he was on his way, and arrived promptly at the agreed upon time. He talked me through the problem first and gave me a solution including costs, which were very reasonable. He was able to repair my dryer within an hour and didn't charge me a penny more than what we discussed. The dryer was cleaned, put back together and running beautifully, and the room was left clean. Hugo's customer service, knowledge of the machine, and overall demeanor were unprecedented. I will absolutely call HB Appliance for our next appliance/HVAC service needs. Thank you Thumbtack and thank you Hugo!

Ezio is a must hire for HVAC. Knows his stuff, super-easy to work with, very quick turn-around, incredible workmanship at a fair price. I needed to get my furnace cleaned for the buyer of my home. Ezio replied with a competitive price and was super responsive. Talk about being committed...his work truck was totaled in an accident, and the next day he came and did the work using a rental truck! The work he did is amazing...it looks like I have a new furnace!!

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.

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.

Everyone at Premium was wonderful. Betty was eager to help and answered all our questions. She was able to schedule us promptly and didn't charge us a dime when Mike came out for what I thought would be routine maintenance and what turned out to be needing a new furnace. Mike gave me a great quote on the spot and was not pushy at all, allowing me to get other quotes and do some research before scheduling for the replacement. He went above and beyond with the install and even added some great features at no additional cost and without prompting. The job was more complicated than initially thought and Mike and his partner came back the very next day to make sure the job was complete. We are so thankful for the great job they did. This is not a fancy operation and has very little online presence- because they focus on what they do- HVAC services. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing HVAC work.

Joe was excellent! He showed up on time and re-diagnosed our issue (we had another HVAC person come the day before) to something that was much, much less expensive. He's very reasonably priced and honest, which are both important qualities!

I'm not a professional, I'm just a guy with 5 rental units and I was struggling to keep up with repairs. Now, I use Homelife as my 'single point of contact' for repair and maintenance management. They have a great stable of contractors to perform a broad range of services from the complex to simple. Homelife manages those contractors closely to ensure high quality workmanship and reasonable prices, all without my direct involvement - I just text Mike with what's broken and which unit and he takes care of the rest. Once repairs are done, he sends me a detailed report and invoice and I pay him electronically. Of the 20+ of times I've used Homelife, there was only one very minor issue and they went above and beyond to take care of it immediately. I get all of this repair and maintenance management with a charge that I barely notice. It is literally a life changer. I would recommend Homelife to anyone for repairs. I can't speak to more comprehensive property management services, but if its anything like the service I've received, I would not hesitate to hire them. (PS - I re-read my post and it sounds totally fake and contrived, but it is 100% true. I'm just a really satisfied customer.)

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.
