Handy Hugo was EXTREMELY knowledgable about IKEA furniture and had everything assembled quickly. He was very flexible with time and even stayed to help install an air conditioner. Hugo was very friendly and did everything he could to make sure that we were satisfied with his work. I could not have asked for anyone better, and I would strongly recommend him for any job! I look forward to hiring Hugo again in the future.

Neil was great! He got back to me immediately and was at our house the next morning. He identified the problem and fixed it in lightning speed. We had our air conditioner unit up and running before it could even get hot in the house. Really appreciated his professionalism and follow up!

We had a burning motor in our air handler and the system had to be shut down. Currier came out within hours replaced the motor the next morning and our system was up and running. Prices were very reasonable. I've hired more than a dozen people from thumbtack and Currier is definitely one of the best. I will definitely use them again.

Henry Ortiz is a saint. My AC stopped working today - hottest day of the year! I called someone that was referred to me as well as putting in a request on Thumbtack. The guy that first came out told me it was a controller and would not be able to get one until Monday. I messaged Rite Temp that I need a controller and if he could do it sooner than Monday I would go with them. Henry called me all confused and said that did not sound right. After explaining to him what was going on, Henry offered to walk me through what he thought the problem was. Over the phone, free! Turns out the pan safety switch triggered because the water was not going out. He told me what to do and it fixed it. What a guy. I am sending him something anyway. He could have said he'd be there tomorrow but I had mentioned that my wife was ill and it being the hottest stretch of the year coming up, he did not hesitate to help me. He was brought up right. Thank you Henry and RITE AID HEATING & AIR CONDITIONING CO.

Ed came out on a Sunday evening within one hour of posting during a heatwave and fixed a blown compaciter and recharged refrigerant. Amazing customer service, super polite, and educated me on the current status of our equipment and what to expect in the future. I will work only with Ed in the future and fully endorse him as a first pick for anyone who needs any service on their home air conditioning or heating systems, thank you Ed, you're awesome

I was pleased that I received a courtesy call from the technician that he was running a little late. When he arrived (Mike), he was polite,and answered all my questions patiently. It took him longer regarding my humidifier than just cleaning, as he saw an issue he took care of. There was no extra charge, though it took some time. In fairness, the cleaning of my dehumidifier needed only five minutes of time. I appreciated the fact that the quote I received for the work performed was what the invoice stated; there were no padded additions. I plan on using this company again and anticipate being satisfied once. again.

Brian at Net Zero was responsive, easy to work with, and very knowledgable. We needed a little additional duct work, a new furnace, and ideas for heating our extension and lower level. We had in person quotes from 5 companies, and while Brian's was not the lowest, we liked his attention to detail, his style of communication, and overall thought he was the best value.

BMB just completed their 2nd job at my home. It was the installation of the Nest Gen 3 wifi thermostat. A 24volt wire needed to be run from wall to AC air handler. BMB was fast, efficient and thorough. The tech took the time to research the Nest Gen 3 prior to arriving and spoke with Nest Technical department to verify all functionality features. When BMB finished the Nest we reviewed the earlier quotation for the high efficiency boiler install. We agreed to do the job and scheduled it for Oct 2017. I will write a review on that install when their work has been completed. Final thought; BMB's experience with high technology on both the Nest and the high efficiency boiler was gradifying.. Good ideas and excellent familiarity with National Grid rebates and products that they support.

It was late July, 95 degrees and very humid. My air conditioning unit wasnt working. We reach out to Topknotch and they came out the same day and fixed the issue. I would highly recommended this company. Getting same day service in the heart of summer is nearly impossible.

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.
