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.

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 needed help installing legs on a couch. I had ordered a couch from Wayfair that came without predrilled holes for the leg assembly. The contractor that Wayfair referred me to kept delaying, so I turned to Doyle for assistance. Within 24 hours of first contact, the legs were installed on my couch. Doyle was very responsive, incredibly professional, and completed the fix in no time at all. He is very friendly and took the time to explain to me how I could do similar fixes myself in the future. I give him my highest possible recommendation.

We were looking for a complete tear out and redo of our bathroom and building a walk-in closet in out master bedroom. Of the 4 contractors we reviewed they were the most organized and professional. The work donewas excellent and they always met their time line for completion of tasks. Their attention to the smallest detail was amazing and it shows in the quality of their work. The employees that worked at our house were extremely courteous and professional. We could not be happier with our experience and we will definitely use them for our basement buildout this summer.

Bobby's proposal was $500 less than the other three contractors. He installed a complete 14 Seer AC system including the condenser, coil, and line set. His work was fabulous. He cleaned up after himself. He's even coming back during the heat of the day this weekend to verify the Freon levels in the system are what they're supposed to be. Thank you

Stayed home from work as I expected him. Calls me 30 mins to an hour before expected arrival and says he can’t come until next week. Need this to be done ASAP and now have to start all over with new contractors. Not happy primarily because I stayed home from work to accommodate his arrival.

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.

I received a call from the company on the day of the scheduled visit saying that the tech was able to come out 2 hours earlier than originally expected. Alex was efficient and concise and didn't give me a hard time about spending over an hour on the roof just LOOKING for the correct HVAC unit since it wasn't labeled. He identified the problem, quickly went to the nearest store to purchase supplies and had our AC back up and running in no time. It was pricey, however I have no idea what the ballpark cost on our repairs would have been so we could have been getting a great deal. Who knows!

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!!!!

I had humidifier installation service from Jaime. I found him on Thumbtack and he was very patient answering all my questions before the project. He was exact on time for my appointment, which is very rare among all the contractors I've used. The space on the return duct is pretty tight for the humidifier. He moved an electric box and reconnect furnace flue to make space. The installation was done smoothly without any issues, and he cleaned up everything before left. I really enjoyed his service and I will definitely call him again for my future needs on my HVAC system.

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.

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 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.

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.
