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!

Excellent customer service, explained everything, professional work. Would have Hugo come back if I need repair of washer/dryer; dishwasher; oven; or refrigerator. More responsive and significantly savings compared to ABT. Hugo diagnosed the problem by listening to the noise my dryer was making over the phone; ordered the parts and came and fixed it the next day. Unlike Abt who can't get you on the schedule for a week and charges $165 just to diagnose the problem; then ABT orders the parts and has to come back in a week, The customer is often without the use of their appliance before ABT can come out and between the 1st diagnostic appointment and the second repair center. With technicians like Hugo on board, Thumbtacks is going to give ABT a run for their money. Jeff Cantor

I noticed water dripping from my furnace and I called RB Temperture Service. The technician Robert returned my call within 10 minutes and told me to turn the power off at the furnace to help prevent any damage to the furnace until he got there. He then showed up within an hour and explained to me what the problem was. I have to admit that I was very worried that I would need a new replacement but it turned out to be just a clogged drain line. Thank you for your honesty and quick response Robert! I'll definitely be calling you if I have any other problems.

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.

Windy chimney service did an incredible job on my chimney and fireplace. I would very much recommend them for all of your chimney needs. I received an estimated price quote immediately and the technician was also able to start and finish the work that same day. I had my damper installed and the chimney crown completed in a matter of hours. If you want professionalism and very personable service you need to hire Windy Chimney.

They did a good job with cleaning my dryer vents and were fast- probably about 20 min tops! They were also considerate of our home and took off shoes to walk on carpet to get to my dryer! Both were professional and respectful and exactly did I wanted for the job. They also cleaned up after their work and put things back the way they were. I would hire them again!

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!!!!

I had the dryer vent cleaned. The technicians were very thoughtful, put covers on their shoes inside the house, and answered all my questions. I would use the service again.

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 often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

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.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
