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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

Let me first say that I'm a new home owner of a house with a water heating system I know nothing about and it wasn't working in the morning. I called and he offered to come in a couple hours. Meanwhile, I realized I had shut it off because the red shut off switch was next to the kitchen light switch. I turned it on and all was well. He didn't have to fix my system but he did come and schooled me a bit about my system and answered all my questions I wanted to know. He didn't even charge me for coming out on a weekend morning. I will use him again if and when my system needs real repairs.

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.

Jeremy and crew removed an OLD steam boiler and hot water tank and replaced with baseboard heat run off of a combi boiler. Jeremy is a very nice guy and so was his entire crew. The work was done for a fair price and overall with very high quality. I am a tough reviewer, so for me a 4 star is like most peoples 5 stars... but I'm knocking off a star based on 3 factors... timeliness, proactive communication and poor carpentry. The project dragged on a good bit longer than expected (not a huge issue since it was vacant and not needed... but still, you like a job to move along and just get completed). The proactive communication is related to the job dragging on. The crew wouldn't be there and work wasn't being done at times and I wasn't informed ahead of time as to why. Too often I had to text Jeremy to get an update (again, not a tragedy, but it's so much nicer if you are just kept informed without having to check in.) Last one is that they had to cut openings in a cabinet in the kitchen and in the kitchen floor for a gas pipe. This was done very sloppily. Granted, they aren't carpenters and these aren't highly visible spaces, but the work was messy and could have been done with much greater care. Overall, though, Jeremy is a great guy, his work on the heating system was first rate and the price he charged for the work was very fair. I absolutely recommend him and would hire him again.

We woke up to 2 degrees Fahrenheit and NO HEAT! We tried reaching our regular gas furnace maintenance contractor and several other local contractors without any luck. When we found Tim through Thumbtack we were so grateful. He quickly assessed our issue over the phone, purchased the part and got to our house that same day. Thank goodness! Not only is a he a professional but very personable too. We plan to contract Tim again to install a humidifying system. Thanks Tim!

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.

    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 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 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 will it cost me to replace my air conditioner?

    If your AC system is in need of replacement, the national average air conditioner installation costs range from $2,930 to $3,670. Costs can vary greatly depending on whether you are replacing a wall or window unit or a central air system. A central air system is connected to ductwork that runs throughout your house and pumps cooled air into your various rooms via vents and registers. A central air conditioning system is far more costly than wall or window units. Selecting a central AC system that has a high seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (SEER) will likely lower both your carbon footprint and your utility bill. The type of AC system you select, where you live in the country, and the regional costs of HVAC work, duct removal and replacement, and ductwork repairs that are needed are some of the main factors that affect the cost of new air conditioner installation. Here are some examples of average costs for installing forced-air systems.

    • Install Lennox 16 SEER single-stage AC unit: $5,743
      • Removing and disposing of the old furnace, moving and reconnecting the water heater, and installing a 3.5-ton gas furnace. The job took 18 hours of labor.
    • Installation of a new 14 SEER single-range cooling system: $4,000-$6,000
    • Installation of a new 16 SEER two-range cooling system: $6,000-$8,000
    • Installation of a new 20 SEER variable capacity cooling system: $8,000-$12,000
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
