Our heat pump broke down so we called a company out to take a look then they told me they can fix but the cost would be so high that they recommend that I should consider a new heat pump so I told them I will think about it . So I went on Thumbtack for a second opinion I got in contact with Remedy Cooling and Heating Remy came take a look at my heat pump run some diognostic told me that the heat pump need freion and one welding he told me what it would cost, how long the work would take , very upfront and honest very hard to find in these days . Remy did not charge me to come out and check on my heat pump and run diognostic on the unit very honest. All I can say from now and for the foreseeable future he is my go to HVAC contractor . Mark W

Rite Temp Air's team was amazing. I submitted a quote while at the gym Saturday morning and they were there within 30 minutes. I was afraid I would need an entirely new heating system, but all in with labor and parts the total was so reasonable. Also, my continued texts of questions have been answered professionally and with patience! I would highly recommend! LG

I heard from the owner, Mark, very shortly after I posted on Thumbtack. I needed a new heating and cooling system installed, and he responded so quickly and was able to come out the next day to give me a quote. He was even able to fit me in the following week, and my new AC has been a lifesaver. The whole time he was communicative and Jason, the main installer, was awesome. Super friendly, professional, tidy with the work- everything I was hoping for. Highly recommended.

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!

Great experience with Mahdi. He is an expert on heating/cooling systems. He solved my problem on a rooftop unit in less than one hour. He explained me step by step what he has done and what was the problem. He is also taking care of simplifying my maintenance schedule with a different solution respect on what I have done in the past. Fully recommended.

Christian diagnosed the issues both with our burst pipe and the HVAC issues that created the challenges. Because of his licensing in HVAC, Plumbing and as an Electrician, he provided outstanding knowledge and value for the work needed at a time when we were without heat during the worst cold spell in the Boston Area in nearly 100 years. I cannot thank him and Brookline Plumbing & Heating Company enough.

We had been having various issues with our heat for a couple of months. Lewis called us back to setup the appointment within half an hour and arrived at the scheduled time. I appreciated that he took the time to review all of the problems and come up with a solution, rather than just trying to get in and out as quickly as possible. Once he found the problem (a previous company had left our heating system at a much too high pressure which had damaged components), he thoroughly explained his solution and then came back the next morning and fixed everything. Our heating system, which hasn't worked correctly in months, is now working perfectly. I only wish we had called NSHVAC/R sooner. We will certainly be continuing to use their services in the future.

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 am thoroughly impressed with the service I received from Dave and his crew at CMS Plumbing. They were always prompt, kept promises, and were easy to work with regarding my project. I had allocated $3,000 for my plumbing needs during my construction, and Dave kept it within a few hundred dollars. During the project, we ran into an issue regarding a drainpipe, and his crew was excellent at resolving the problem within two hours. I highly recommend CMS plumbing for any plumbing and heating needs.

Overall, this was a most positive experience. He did the HVAC work on a historic house owned by a volunteer organization.We had to have asbestos removed in a short time frame and then he showed up the next day with new heating ducts. It was a pleasure to work I with him and we liked that he was an independent contractor. He did some pretty difficult work, installing in ancient crawl spaces, and did a wonderful job. He took the needs of our organization into account and treated us with respect and fairness. He is an experienced professional who more than lived up to our expectations. Also, did work in a timely manner and was most reliable.

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 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 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.
