What can i say jose was above and beyond what i expected! He not only came over at 7pm on a Saturday night to resolve the problem with my central air conditioning but i had recently had an electrician here to look at a job that i was told i dont know what to tell you. Hose not only took a picture of the spot lights that are on sensor he explained to me that one of them needed to be replaced and he will take care of it! Hes so good im afraid that he will be so busy the next time i call he wont be available lol! I am for sure using him again!

Mark and his team did an amazing job installing our central air. The work was very high quality and done in a way that allows us to finish off our attic in the future. Add in the fact that the pricing was one of the most competitive we received and you can't beat them. Not to mention that they did the attic install during a heat wave. You won't be disappointed if you go with Currier.

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.

I had a newer AC unit stop working on me right when it was outside its warranty. The contractor who installed it was absolute trash with whom I had a litany of problems so I tried Modern Air HVAC. I really wish I would have had these guys from the start to do the initial work. Jeremy/Modern Air came out within 48 hours of my Thumbtack request. Despite attempts to repair the unit he stopped at parts that needed to be special ordered and told me flat out that the unit that was initially installed was some off-brand POS that is essentially built to fail. He was willing to order parts for me to fix it but in the end he told me I'd be saving myself a lot of money and issues down the road to just replace the condenser with something more reliable. I did some research on my own and basically found this all to be true and the price Jeremy/Modern Air quoted me for a new unit was more than reasonable. Within a week I had a brand new condenser unit, 5 year warranty on everything, and an HVAC guy that not only knew his stuff but was trustworthy, reliable, and did the little things like reply to texts and phone calls and let you know if he was going to be running behind. All things considered it would have been hard to disappoint me based on the first company I had hired, but I really felt like Modern Air HVAC went above and beyond to make sure the job was done right and that I was happy. I highly recommend these guys for any HVAC issues!

Tim did a great job-he came right over, knew what was wrong, and fixed my air conditioning. He showed and explained to me what needed to be done and answered all my questions. I will call him again in the spring when I need to replace the system. His prices were fair and I appreciated his concern about my comfort during a heat wave.

Mike was able to come same-day, which I really needed. He explained what he was doing and discussed possible reasons for the problem. We have a 20 year-old furnace, and other furnace/air conditioning people would have dismissed repairs and gone straight for the "you need a new furnace" line. But Mike was willing to work with what we had. I felt very comfortable having him in my home. When we do need to replace the furnace (which may be sooner than later), we will be going with Mike!

Ross recently installed a central air conditioning system in our home. Our experience was excellent. Ross and his crew arrived at the designated time and conducted themselves with the highest level of professionalism. There were no surprises. The work was completed on time, and there were no additional costs. In addition, Ross followed up after installation and volunteered to address any questions or concerns that we might have in the future. We are wholly satisfied with Ross and with his work and wholeheartedly recommend him.

My only regret is that there aren't more stars to give these guys. I own an ice cream shop in Arlington and contacted these guys to install a new central air system for my storefront. Not only did they give me a fair price, they installed a kick ass system specially catered to the needs of my particular space and completed the job in less than a week. I mean we are talking hyper speed. Not to mention they conveniently cleared the space out of all trash and left it exactly the way they found it. Now let's talk about the system itself. Holy cow is this thing a masterpiece. Perfectly balanced cool air circulates my store allowing for a wonderfully comfortable atmosphere. I couldn't thank these guys more. Do yourself a favor and choose these guys because I know these guys are forever my go to. Well done boys and thank you.

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.

My Husband and I have been wanting to put air conditioning we knew a mini split system for heat and cooling was a perfect solution that would also cut down on the woodstove use in the winter. We checked out several companies but C & S Repairs has a stellar work etic and after they installed a system in few of my friends home we knew they were the installer for us. They couldn't have been more professional and it was obvious watching them work, they are very good at what they do. We were stunned at how efficient they were and the system is outstanding. It was great a investment in our home and they made it a painless process. They were absolutely outstanding.

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.
