We just purchased a new home and we really needed to clean our ducts.. Stan came to our house right on time, from the very beginning we liked him.. he was very professional and nice. When he finished the job we also asked him to leave us an estimate on new furnace and price that he gave us was very good, so we ended up also buying a new furnace. Furnace was installed next day! Artur(installer) was also very professional he did a great job! He cleaned everything after installation and took all the garbage with him.. thank you Green Air

BULLSHIT!! call this guy with your heating issues.. he found a dead squirrel in the flu pipe which kept the furnace over heating $125.00 fix... oppose to $2600.00 for a new furnace.

I contacted TDH Mechanical and talked to Tim. He answered the multitude of questions that I had and he scheduled someone to come out the same day. Once Ken arrived he analyzed the 2 furnaces, determined proper furnace size needed, and responded to my concerns. Ken was courteous, efficient and informative. The next day Larry and Jesus came as scheduled in fact 30 minutes early to install the new furnace. They were professional, people friendly, and got the job done in a reasonable amount of time. Larry made sure that I inspected the newly installed furnace, he demonstrated how to use the programmable thermostat, and explained how to register the furnace for parts and labor. My new Trane furnace evenly distribute heat throughout the apartment and it is quiet too. I am pleased with TDH customer service and I would highly recommend TDH Mechanical.

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.

Martin was great to deal with from start to finish. He came out on the weekend to discuss the project in detail. After spending the time to hear what we were looking for he explained how he would do the work and what he recommended. He was able to give a quote before leaving and even set up a time to come back to complete the project. Martin was professional, courteous, competitive and knowledgeable. Sometimes it seems difficult to find someone honest and reasonable. I am happy to say I feel lucky to have found this contractor. He is my go to guy for now on for all things HVAC. For anyone interested in what work we had done...we have a finished basement that did not have any supply or return ducts so it was always cold, stagnant air down there. He was able to install both supply ducts and a return to make the basement comfortable. He made quick work of the project and was considerate enough to also clean when done. I can’t say it enough, I am glad I found Martin. He will be the contractor I opt for when it comes time to replace our furnace and a/c.

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.
