Sam worked in our home today, and I am so happy with the amazing job that he did! He showed up at the exact time we had agreed on and spent over 7 hours cleaning our ducts and HVAC. He was so thorough, I could tell that he did a great job because of the time he spent on each vent. He cleaned our dryer vent as well and he also showed me videos of the before and after of everything and what a big difference! This was such a pleasant experience for the price; he was genuinely concerned about the amount of dust and debris and wanted to make sure it was all gone. Hire him, you will not regret it!

Robert responded to our request within minutes, set up a time for the very next day, arrived on time, got straight to work, clearly was well prepared, installed two Nest thermostats, even worked on wiring on the actual HVAC units, gave me an obsessively detailed worksheet with the serial numbers for the Nest associated with each HVAC system, then recommended maintenance on those units, then stuck to the honest estimate he had provided before starting the job. We couldn't be more satisfied with this professional.

Job was overall good. HVAC was not cleaned - only the air filters were cleaned with the vacuum cleaner. I was told to replace the filters myself in 2-3 days. The person who did the work was very professional.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!!!!

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.
