Bobby was great. This was our first time using him and his others reviews held true. He communicated well with his arrival time, when the job took a twist he was knowledgeable and repaired a mistake left by another contractor that could have been dangerous. He went and got the part and stayed true to his quote. We will be hiring Bobby for other jobs in the future for sure!

I hired Mr. Farrell to come and figure out what was wrong with my furnace. Mr. Farrell came to my house and explained to me what the possible problem was with my furnace. He advised me that the issue with my furnace was cause either by a faulty fan limit control switch or a bad thermocyple. He advised me not to worry and told me that he would isolate the problem and repair my furnace. I was skeptical because days before Mr. Farrell showed up to repair my furnace I paid another company to figure out the problem and they could not resolve the issue even though the other company advertised that they had over 25 years experience in the heating repair industry. Mr. Farrell and his company was successful with repairing my furnace and recommended things that I could do to extend the life of the furnace. One thing I liked about Mr. Farrell was that he did not rush the job and he made sure that I was completely satisfied before he left my house. He re-tested the furnace a few times before he left to make sure that it was operating properly. Based on my experience with Mr. Farrell I would have to say that he is a knowledgeble heating repair professional that is honest and straightforward not a fast talker trying to make a quick buck. His fee were more than reasonable and I would recommend his company to anybody that is looking for a reputable company to repair your furnace.

I had Mark work on both of my homes. His work was very professional. A friend of mine (a general contractor), and several other people asked me who I had install my outdoor shower on my Cape home, as they thought it "looked great". His prices are very fair and I would highly recommend him.

If you want someone who will treat you like the most important person in their lives Remedy is the person to hire. I was so upset that I didn't have heat because I found out the hard way that my furnace had broke and was leaking CO2 into my house. He got back to me ASAP and explained everything that needed to be done in detail so I could understand the process and most of all my options. He was so caring that he worked with me to set up a payment plan so I could get it my furnace ASAP. He even went beyond and pointed out flaws that I was not aware in my heating system. He and his workers cleaned up after themselves and treated my home with the up most respect. I have found my forever heating and plumbing man. If you want a forever plumbing and heating person Remedy is your man.

I don't usually do these reviews, but if you are looking for a plumber Joel at Clear Water is the guy for the job. I hired a another plumber a few months ago and wish I would have called Clear Water first. Joel was on time, gave me a three different options of what he could do and what the cost would be for all three, and the quality of work was top notch. Any plumbing or heating issues going forward I will be contacting Clear Water.

Because I grew up in a stuffy house without cooling, I was always miserable in the summers. It was my childhood dream to own a house with central cooling. In 2017, we bought a house without cooling, but Currier was able to remedy that. We hired Currier to install cooling in our entire home. They also installed heating in the finished part of our basement. Starting the process, I got quotes from three contractors. Currier stood out from the other contractors for the following reasons: 1. Proposed the best solution for the house and not whatever was easiest to install 2. Clearly explained the solution. One contractor said he would put a ductless unit in a certain spot because it fit but did not consider the room layout. 3. Well priced. They weren’t the cheapest solution, but also not the most expensive. Currier was able to start the work right away. They were accommodating with our schedules. At the beginning of each week, we would tell Mark which days and partial days we could be available and Mark made the arrangements. Mark was very responsive with e-mail. The overall process took longer than expected due to unforeseen situations. There was a lot of concrete between the floors, the ceiling had tight clearances, the thermostats needed rewiring, etc. But the crew worked through the challenges. The crew was courteous and polite, and cleaned up every day before leaving. We now have cooling in what feels like one of the more humid summers in recent history. We are thankful for the Currier team for making it possible.

A&M Services just finished fixing my steam boiler/furnace & radiator issue at my home in Roxbury. Our heating sysem and furnace is very old and it's a little scary to let just anyone work on it. Thank goodness I can say the service they provided was freaking amazing!!! On the coldest day of the year thus far, the boiler decided to stop working? ...aaargh. Each time I looked at the thermostat, the temperature inside the house dropped another 2 degrees. That was no fun. I honestly don't know how they got here so fast but they did and I'm glad for it. Professional, knowledgable and skilled describes this company best. And the cost did not burn a hole in my pocket either. I have been trying to find a company to replace my other guy and finally my search is over; what a damn relief. When I'm ready to change to a newer boiler I already know who I'm going to call. Thank you A&M for all your help today!

We had a new heating system put in as well as a tankless hot water heater. They also upgraded our electrical panel and put in an electric baseboard in our foyer. The guys were punctual, extremely professional and knowledgeable. I recently had an extremely experienced contactor come through for an unrelated project and he said the work that Three Brothers did was some of the best that he had seen in years. I am more than pleased with the outcome! Highly recommend!

Respond very fast and schedule an appointment within a week. Did the maintenance for my heating system and troubleshot on of the heating zone. Pros: the mechanic seems professional and knowledgeable and did his job in a appropriate way and helped me find out what the issue was. Cons: the cost is a little high ($200 for a regular maintenance)and it was hard for me to understand his English.

Errol came to my house the night before to look around my heating system. Gave me a really good price and next day him and his partner stopped by and did an excellent job and left everything super clean. Also, as they were performing the work, they answered all my questions. I will no longer look at any other company for this project. I’m thankful.

Chris installed a new ac condenser (Bryant) and air handler (First Co). He was great! He delivered everything he contracted to do. He was efficient, clean, thorough, professional, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend including him among the hvac contractors you consider for your work. He’s “into” what he does, and cares about the product of his work. We were very happy with Chris as our choice.

I hired Ron to convert an old oil-based heating system to a tankless gas-based hot water/heating system. I just can say the job was done to perfection !!! He did the job in 2-1/2 days, including the removal of the old boiler, water tank and oil tanks. The piping routes were very well laid-out to minimize changes in the old system. He obtained all necessary permits from City Hall, got clearance from the city inspector, gave me a rebate form for the heater had a very reasonable price for the job.

I met Chris through a mutual friend who highly recommended him. I was hesitant at first because this person is a good friend of mine and these are the types of situations that tarnish friendships. Fortunately, this was not the case. I explained to Chris the issues I was having with the furnace and condenser to the best of my ability. He then proceeded to troubleshoot the system and explained what he was doing step by step. He was able to isolate the problems to a wiring issue. I'll say it again, a wiring issue. No parts to purchase, just simply wiring the system properly. He could've told me anything, he could've sold me anything but instead, just told me the truth. A very rare quality to find in a person nowadays. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone and you can be comfortable knowing that he'll be honest with you and the job will be done to your satisfaction.

Few times in my life I write about a company. This crew came to my home last night after suffering 2 other plumbing contractors whom I told what unit I have, swore they were well versed, couldn't restore my heating system. now its 1:45 am my home now 48 degrees and fearful of a total freeze-up. Called a friend who I remembered boasting about the plumber who came over a few weeks ago to get his personal cell number. He responded in 40 minutes and worked until my high efficiency unit was fired up again. He had a computer gadget hooked up to it that the other 2 monkeys didn't have and saw the problem, corrected it and we are the better for it. Sir, a true gentleman, and a special thanks dealing with my wife and crying kids. Hire this firm if you have serious issues and send the monkeys to the zoo. Thank you men, get some sleep.

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 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 have your furnace cleaned?

To keep your furnace in good working order it’s important to have it regularly cleaned. The national average furnace cleaning cost ranges from $60 to $80, though prices can vary greatly based on where you live in the country and what your furnace maintenance includes. An HVAC company may have different rates for different levels of furnace maintenance. For example,one company may offer general furnace maintenance for $79 and advanced maintenance for $138. Another company may offer a 38-point maintenance check for $89 and a 64-point maintenance check for $178. According to Energy.gov, a standard furnace cleaning and maintenance visit can include:

  • Checking the vent connection pipe and chimney
  • Checking the physical integrity of the heat exchanger
  • Adjusting the controls to provide optimum air temperatures
  • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
  • Cleaning and oiling the blower
  • Removing soot and corrosion from the furnace
  • Checking the fuel input and flame characteristics
  • Sealing the connections between the furnace and the main ducts

How much does it cost to replace a gas furnace?

The cost to replace your gas furnace will vary based on the type and size of furnace you select, labor and installation costs, and any repairs your HVAC system may need. Nationally, average HVAC prices for a heating specialist range between $1,800 and $2,500. It’s important to select the right size gas furnace for your heating needs. A furnace that’s too small won’t heat your house properly, while a furnace that’s too large will run inefficiently, cycling on and off and likely breaking down sooner. HVAC specialists calculate your exact heat needs by measuring your home and incorporating variables such as the regional climate and your home’s level of insulation. Retail pricing for gas furnaces can range from $650 up to $3,000 and more. The higher the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating of the furnace, the more efficient it is at turning fuel into heat and the lower your carbon footprint and utility bill will be. HVAC installation costs are often based on an hourly rate and can range from under $50 to over $100 per hour, depending on the company and the furnace being installed. Higher-end furnaces cost more to install because they require added labor and expertise. For a typical installation, it might take two HVAC installation pros one day or less to remove your old furnace and replace it with a new one.

How much does it cost to have your furnace serviced?

When your furnace isn’t regularly serviced it can operate less efficiently. This increases your energy bills and also prevents your furnace from keeping your home as warm as you like. Keep your furnace properly maintained with regular service. The national average furnace service cost is between $60 and $80. Companies may offer tuneup specials that cover all the necessary testing, tightening, measuring and cleaning to keep your equipment running at top efficiency. If you have a newer system, furnace service costs may be covered by your warranty. Outside of warranty, a basic tuneup might start at $58 and a more advanced maintenance cleaning could be over $120. Here are some signs your furnace may need service:

  • The furnace has stopped functioning entirely.
  • The temperature cannot be regulated.
  • Rooms in the home are either too hot or too cold.
  • The heated air coming from the furnace smells like gas.
  • The thermostat isn’t working.
  • Strange noises are coming from the furnace.
