I hired Farrell to fix my central air conditioning system that had broken down. Dan Farrell was very professional, courteous, and easy to work with. He came out of his way to help me as soon as possible on a very hot day. Once here he diagnosed and repaired the problem quickly. I am very satisfied with his work.

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

Put in a job at 730am on a Sunday. Got a response by 830am. Tech arrived by 1pm. Done by 130pm. We were in a tough spot because our central air went down the day before a 2 day heat wave was on the way in. Tech was really nice and informative and they didn’t use our situation to rip us off. I’ve had a few companies in the past try to take advantage and quote absurd prices. I’ll never call another company for HVAC ever again. Thanks guys.

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.

Mike was excellent! Our central air unit stopped working. Mike came to our house and had the problem diagnosed in short time. The next day he was back with a new motor and now our house is so nice and cool again. We will definitely hire Mike for all future heating and A/C issues! We definitely recommend Mike Drohan!

I must say I was a bit nervous at first because DunRite. Did not have any reviews on Thumbtack and they were new to the site but I am glad I didn't judge a book by its cover because I am more than happy with the job they did they showed up 10 minutes early and I spoke with the owner jarek and was surprised how much knowledge he had. I had my old Central air system replaced and a mini split installed in my 4 season sun room. The job came out amazing I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again for all my HVAC needs

Anthony installed lighting at very reasonable price for my bedrooms, living room and family room, most of which are recessed lighting. He responded my request on Thumbtack quickly with all details, also started his work soon with flexible schedule. Easy to communicate and did great job. He is experienced, and was very patient to explain to relieve my concerns when I had some. After finishing job, he cleaned the floor. Plus, he even helped me fixed some other things without charge! I also consulted him on central air conditioning installation, and he gave me a great deal compared to others’. Recommend to everybody.

We recently met James who quoted us and had ARS install a new boiler with central air conditioning system add on. We are very happy with the workmanship and professionalism. We had a small problem with the thermostat but one call to the service department and they had a tech out within two hours of our call who replaced the thermostat. All in all I appreciate the hard work of James and Mike and Eric. They all did their part to make this large purchase an easy pleasurable experience. Paul G - Middleborough

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.
