Excellent service from start to finish. Luis and Joe came out to do an estimate for insulation they were curtious and on time. After a day the team came to finish the work, there was only 4-6" of original insulation left in the attic. EBRR and team showed up on time and ready to work. Half a day later we had a fully insulated attic. The crew even removed the old house fan that was leaking air into the attic and put new drywall over it. I could have gotten the project done cheaper by a few hundred dollars but none of the contractors I had come out were nearly as professional, polite, and knowledgeable as the EBRR team. I highly recommend this team.

Absolute superb service! Talmas and his team are true professionals. They arrived 10 min early, identified root cause and things that may increase energy efficiency and air quality, offered feedback and general knowledge through the end. They cleaned up after themselves along with any debris. I will DEFINITELY use them again and highly recommend to others.

My AC stopped blowing cold air late Monday evening. The next morning I focused on finding someone that can come out and fix my AC that day. I found Thumbtrack through google. Air Ducts Heating & Cooling responded to my inquiry and was the only one who was available to come out almost immediately. They were at my house by noon and diagnosed the issue. They didn't have the parts needed and said they had to come back on Thursday. BUT they did not leave me dying in a hotbox of a house. Oscar the technician/owner did a work around with AC so I that I would not be without AC in 90+ degree heatwave. The work around resulted in my AC running 24/7. But no problem - Oscar explained that I needed to manually shut it off and on and later checked in to make sure everything was okay. What - Customer Service..WOW I was impressed!! Now wait for it....not only did they check in but Oscar found the part I needed earlier then expected and they came out on the 4th of July to installed the part and VIOLA!!! My AC was fixed on Independence day!!! I must say the customer service, the professionalism, the quick response time and reasonable price can't be beat to my knowledge. Air Ducts is the company to call if you need HVAC service. They were an absolute God sent. After fixing the AC, they follow up and checked to make sure that the AC was working and that there were no other issues. You just don't get that type of service any more but with Air Ducts Heating & Cool Plumbing - YOU GET EXTRAORDINARY CUSTOMER SERVICE... I recommend them --5 star service from a 10 star company. Thank you Oscar!

I believe Leo did a great job cleaning out my air vents/ ducts. Although Leo did a great job on this project, I do agree with previous reviews on how he often tries to raise the price for little details. I Felt like the price was always up for negotiation; even after we come to an agreement before the work is done.

On one of the hottest days in August the air in my home stopped working. I contacted Logan Mechanical from a referral by a friend who was also very satisfied with their service. The technician arrived as scheduled and was very professional and knowledgeable. He diagnosed the issue immediately and explained what was needed and made the necessary repairs. The price was also reasonable. I will definitely contact Logan Mechanical for all of my air and heating needs and have already recommended them to others

Val did an outstanding job on the my old (home built in 1952) HVAC cleaning of air ducts, coil and main lines. I have only lived in this home since January 28, 2017. Val informed me that my unit had never had an HVAC cleaning. The dust buildup and debris was atrocious. He showed me every area that he cleaned thorough out the whole process. Val was very spot-on, informative, knowledgable, helpful and most of all worked efficiently! He informed me that there is black mold growing in one part of the air duct system also and how to properly place the filters inside the slot and proper upkeep on the HVAC unit going forward. I will have to schedule another appointment for that to be done. He was kind enough to take off the old corroded, painted over white register vents and directly referred me to some one to put on new white ones. He also came back the next day, first thing in the morning to show me the proper way to set the thermostat so that the fan will not run all the time. I will definitely stay with Val's company and have the HVAC done next April as recommended by Val and refer him to any family or friends. Thank you Val for your HVAC and mold cleaning services 😊

I had Gomez help me with some HVAC work in my bathroom. We needed to move a air vent from the floor to the ceiling due to a bathroom remodel. He was Fantastic. I would recommend him to any friend or family member. He was on time. Price was great. He explained what he was going to do and executed everything on time. Seeing as how I live in an old Arlington house, we of course uncovered issues along the way and he was able to still complete the job without jacking up the price. I cannot say the same for other contractors that I have worked with in the past. If you need Heating and AC work done in your home, call Gomez. He is a great professional.

We had the basement cleared of insulation material and carpet with mold, and the basement walls and floor washed off existing mold, and sprayed for mold prevention. We had dehumidifier and vent registers put in, and basement walls painted with Drylok. The basement is now mold-free, with adequate air circulation and humidity control, thanks to RestorClean's professional work and recommendations. Very impressed with the company!

I had a HVAC system with no cold air output. The outdoor unit was located on the roof of my condo bldg, accessible only through a small attic crawl space. Brian arrived promptly, and very quickly identified my unit, diagnosed the problem and replaced the defective part. I had cold air again within 30 minutes.

I submitted my request on Thumbtack at almost 10pm, not expecting to hear anything until the morning. Almost 5mins after, HVAC responded, let me know they were in the area and if comfortable they would stop by and take a look. I was a bit apprehensive to the time and strangers coming in so late, however the heat was so unbearable that I agreed. I'm so glad I did! Not only did they work above and beyond to fix my VERY OLD unmaintained air conditioning unit, they did so while working late in the night (a Friday no less), and had to improvise during a brief rainstorm. The guys handle the situation like champs and by 12:30am I finally had air conditioning again. Now that's dedication!!!

Superior Air HVAC. provided exceptional service. Their work was higher quality and more affordable than other companies that I have previously used. They also found a mistake made by a previous company and fixed it for no extra charge that will save me a lot of money on my electric bill in the future. I could not recommend them strongly enough.

JD was very nice and answered my questions courteously. He suggested me an alternative and cheaper ways to fix my heat pump. He also called the next day to ask if my heat pump still working. He came back when the fuse of the furnace and thermostat was blown due to change of battery to the thermostat. He fixed the problem and stayed on site to make sure the problem resolved. I will recommend his service to anybody who needs A/C repair.

I had Temperature PRO come by to do a check-up of our heating system before the winter and they did an extremely thorough job performing the checks. I have had another company perform a check-up in the past and they came and took some quick looks in the unit and were in and out in 15-20 minutes, but Temperature PRO came by and did a really complete job looking in the furnace and heat pump that took at least an hour. They took off all the panels and used a variety of multi-meters and tools to check the electrical connections, clean out the entire unit, and check pressures using some tools they brought. The service technician (Nelson) was really great at walking me through the entire process and what they were looking for, along with tips and personal experiences. They actually identified some major issues with my heat pump that the other companies on their checks missed. I felt really confident that i had found the right people so I had them actually come out and replace the furnace and heat pump for the house. They were also running a promotion for free hot water heater replacement and installation if i was replacing both the furnace and the heat pump too (lucky me because this was something i had wanted done anyways). They walked me through my options and didn't pressure me on any of the installation options which i appreciated. Once i selected my options they were able to come in the next day to install the furnace, heat pump, and hot water heater. These guys did a really great job! I was extremely impressed with their work (took a full day to do all the work - which was a lot of work!). The work was clean, they didn't cut any corners, and were very professional and helpful through the whole installation. I would recommend Temperature PRO for any kind of heating\plumbing needs. They were able to provide GREAT service and were very helpful and friendly to work with. The prices were reasonable and i will absolutely be calling them again in the future for any other maintenance, check-ups, or fixes that i need. I highly recommend Temperature PRO.

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 often should you get your air ducts cleaned?

How often you should clean your air ducts depends on your situation. If you or someone in the home has asthma or is acutely allergic to certain airborne materials or pollen, regular duct cleaning may be helpful. The Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have an official position on the necessity of air duct cleaning unless the ducts have been contaminated by rodents, insects or mold, or you are aware of particles blowing out through the vents. The EPA recommends you have your air ducts cleaned on an as-needed basis. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) suggests having air ducts cleaned every three to five years.

Be cautious with companies that offer “whole house air duct cleaning,” urges the NADCA. The company may be using unscrupulous tactics to upsell you once they get started. Before any work begins, always clarify in writing what the job entails and what the cost will be. To protect yourself against fraud, read customer reviews and verify that your HVAC cleaning service has applicable licenses and certifications.

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.

Do you need to clean your air ducts?

Air duct cleaning is done by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals. The pros use industrial-strength, truck-mounted vacuums and powerful brushes and hoses to clean inside the metal ducts that make up your forced air heating and cooling system. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends duct cleaning if there is “substantial visible mold growth inside hard surface ducts, ducts that are infested with vermin such as rodents or insects, or ducts that are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris and/or particles are actually released into the home from your supply registers.”

You should also have air ducts cleaned after recent water contamination or water damage to prevent mold; after renovations or remodeling to ensure debris and dust didn’t settle in the vents and ducts; if you are having problems with allergies or asthma; or when you are moving into a newly purchased home, especially if the previous owners smoked or had pets. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years, or every two to three years in regions where homeowners use their air conditioning and heater for many months of the year, while the EPA suggests homeowners have duct cleaning done as needed.

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.
