The guys at Better Best AC are incredibly professional. Everything they did from the initial estimate all the way until the job was done, and even the follow-up days after the job was done all impressed me very much. I had 3 other companies come out to do estimates, and all of them said I needed another unit, 2 of them didn't even look at my current unit or any of my duct work! All of them spent less then 10 minutes at my house, so I don't know how they gathered all the information they needed...Better Best AC sent 3 guys to do the estimate, and they spent a good 45 minutes crawling into the attic to look at the ducts, and to test my current unit. They were the only ones who thought I didn't need a new unit and they could correct some major existing issues. They were so thorough, I decided to trust their judgement! I couldn't be happier with my decision. These guys showed up on time, worked hard the entire time. I was amazed by the work ethics they displayed. The owner Deshaun explained everything to me every step of the way. He really cared about getting the job done right! I will use them for any of my cooling and heating needs in the future, and have already recommended them to my friends and neighbors! Don't make the mistake of just anyone... Go with these guys if you want the job done right the first time!

Steve was great to work with. The process was a learning event for both of us since he had never installed this particular brand of pool safety fence. Steve was never satisfied with "close enough". He worked hard to get it right. Steve was very involved in another larger job nearby and we agreed that he would work on my job on weekends and in the afternoons. His price was very fair and beat other bids. I am very satisfied with his work and I am having him bid on some other projects I have to do around the house.

Good Knowledgable Electrician. Has 20+ years of experience and was more knowledgable than the Electricans hired by the City of New Orleans who came to do my home electrical inspection. Very interesting and funny to see Wayne (From Ace Electrical) teaching the City of New Orleans Electrical inspector about things in his field that the city inspector was not aware of how to do.

Made contact with A. Hernandez on Thursday afternoon and he was here and working by 9: 30 the next morning. Every thing was done in a top quality manner. He had many construction skills and will work simple jobs . His specialty is air conditioning verified a service call I had 2 months ago. As my wife commented - he’s a very personable young man with a family looking to fill up his schedule. Will be hiring him for 2 more projects next week, and more beyond that.

When my air conditioning unit went out, it was a very miserable and discomforting time for my family. I called a few companies before making a decision. After speaking with Mr. Oliver, I was impressed and felt confident that I was making a wise choice to hire Father & Son Heating and Cooling for the job. When Oliver came out, the service was excellent, he was knowledgeable and very pleasant. I'm really careful about who comes into my home, but Oliver was really easy to work with and I was quite comfortable. He was accommodating and straightforward. He was willing to work with my schedule and he actually listened to all of my questions and concerns. I strongly recommend Father & Son Heating and Cooling for your repairs. This company provides excellent service, they are reasonably priced and prompt. Since DOS, I've received a call in regards to the service I received and a thank you for allowing the company to take care of my repair needs. Awesome company and Father & Son could definitely expect to get all my business in the future!!!

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 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. 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 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 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.
